Guess we don’t need to flirt during CrossFit anymore.

Introducing Sweatt, a new fitness-focused dating app that promises to find your next swole mate—think Tinder for the sweat-obsessed. The app, which launched as an invite-only app in January, has officially opened up to the public in New York and will soon feature other health-conscious cities like Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

Looks like the good old days of flirting mid-WOD at CrossFit are gone—will we ever be able to put our phone down? Based on systems and algorithms similar to other dating apps, Sweatt determines your perfect matches based on workout and time-of-day preferences, as well as average number of workouts per week and preferred type of “fuel.” And when the fitness stars align? You’ll get notified that someone “sweatts” you—good to know?

“People have developed this love/hate relationship with dating apps because, while they are a great platform to connect, they are also filled with people who aren’t serious and just aren’t good matches,” says Sweatt founder Dan Ilani. “Instead of making life easier, they often feel like they create more disappointment. Sweatt solves that problem by bringing together a community of like-minded people.”

Plus, the app promises an array of “intelligent matches,” taking into consideration that while you spend your days on the bike, you may be looking for that mindful meditator when it comes to a soul mate.
