ActiveMatch is a free online service helping individuals to find their (near) perfect exercise partner or small group.
The purpose of this service is to help women who have been diagnosed with cancer connect with similar women who are looking for support and guidance to help start, continue, or change their exercise routines.
Welcome to ActiveMatch
The first step is to sign up and create a profile by answering some basic questions.
You’ll then be able to browse the profiles of all of the other women who have joined ActiveMatch. You can do a specific search (e.g., based on your location or your favourite activities) to see which members are closest to you or interested in the same types of activities. Send a message to anyone that you think might be a good fit for you as an exercise partner and see how you can support one another’s exercise goals!
Once you’ve made your profile, it will be saved in the ActiveMatch system so that it can be searched by other ActiveMatch members who are looking for (an) exercise partner(s).
