Developer’s description: Ever traveled for business and wished you had a local training partner to work out with? Or, needed a mentor to answer a quick question about your specific fitness or nutrition goals? Lost your workout mojo and need someone with the same ability and lifestyle to help get you back into it? Planning on doing a marathon for your 50th birthday, and you’re looking for someone like you to train with? The ActiveBudzapp makes personal connections for you so you don’t have to search for someone who walks, cycles or does CrossFit as good as you do. No matter your fitness ability, background or lifestyle – wherever you are, whenever you need someone – the ActiveBudz app is your hub to the people and expert resources that matter to you.

GoTribal’s mobile app ActiveBudz is just leaving the starting gate, but I had a chance to preview it and you will at the end of June. The app is designed to match mentors with athletes who need coaching and/or to find the perfect workout buddy. The app takes advantage of location based mobile features to find you the best match in your area. Heading to San Francisco and need a jogging partner? GoTribal will make a match based on ability, when you like your workout and more. Because people are so particular about their workouts and type of sport it remains to be seen how well Go Tribal can build community, but the idea works for everything from a pickup workout to a coach for life.
