FitnessDates.com is a dating platform for health and fitness enthusiasts. The site describes itself as the premier fitness dating portal on the net. The landing page may appear a little outdated, but the overall appearance is trustworthy and inviting.
To determine whether FitnessDates.com can be recommended or not, we search the internet for user reviews, and carefully study the site’s legal information. Furthermore, we create a free account, explore the members’ area, and check out the features. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend anyone to sign up here.
The free membership turns out to be entirely useless. Almost all features, including the chat, can only be fully used by paying subscribers. The offered subscriptions, however, appear to be dangerous traps. They extend automatically, and we have reason to believe that it is very difficult to cancel them. Therefore, users can easily end up stuck in an expensive subscription trap.
Fake profiles and data leaks
Aside from the risks posed by the membership subscriptions, there are several other issues that must be addressed. Firstly, the members’ area contains many fake profiles, and the chances of finding genuine singles here seem very low. Secondly, your personal data is not safe here. According to the terms and conditions, each user’s personal information will be shared on a huge network of dating websites, run by an infamous scam company.
For US-based users, the official operator of FitnessDates.com is First Beat Media Inc, who are located in Plantation, Florida. We have never heard of this company before. For all users outside the US, however, the responsible company is ODS Online Dating Systems LTD, who are well known to us. We have already written several reviews about their websites, all of which were scams. Online, this company has a very poor reputation online. They are regularly criticized for subscription rip-offs, fake profiles, data leaks, and terrible customer service.
