Posted Jan 04 2011 1:50pm
Are you single?
Are you fit....and/or do you just want to find that fit partner to for a sweaty and of course romantic swim, bike or run on on a Saturday afternoon?
If so we're pleased to share with you the best cities to find that fitness love connection. Check out the email we just received from Match.com below.
BTW: Somehow we were not at all surprised by number one.
Hint: It is our hometown and of course the mecca of triathlon.
The Holiday season has just wrapped and we can all prepare ourselves for the annual declaration of “sweet” surrender and repentance for the caloric intake consumed over the past 6 weeks. Many of us will be looking for anything and anyone to help us get back on track and even if you were disciplined this year and are closer to your fitness goals than you were before, a positive influence from the person you’re dating is a big part of continuing to conquer the on-going challenge ahead.
Match.com, the world’s leading on-line dating service, took a deep dive into some of its unparalleled singles’ data and learned that when it comes to finding the right “fit,” some cities and towns are ahead of the curve(s). Below is a full list of Match.com’s Top 15 fittest singles cities and the favored activities in each.
Health and fitness is sure to be a focus throughout the month of January and I’m hoping you might have room to include this data as part of your editorial coverage. If you’d like to build the piece out a little further I am happy to arrange for you to speak with Match.com spokesperson and relationship expert Whitney Casey, who can offer tips and advice on how to make physical fitness and “activity dating” part of your new lifestyle in 2011.
