App5F - Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is simple: Get people more active.

We have all been there, it’s raining outside, it’s too cold, too hot, you are sore, tired, too busy, not athletic enough… there are endless excuses to skip your workout and many do. Let’s imagine there is a workout buddy waiting for you to exercise. A friend who is counting on you. Your motivation to get up and get going will be that much higher and it will be easier and more fun to do sports. A training partner is very valuable and you are more likely to give 100% on your next workout and push each other. With our new fitness app 5F it is super easy to discover new friends nearby and be more active, together.

The idea to build this app came to the founder while working as an Air Ambulance Pilot. He saw first hand the devastating long-term consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle. As a very active guy himself, he knew he had to do something. Statistics say that almost 70% of U.S. adults are overweight or obese and 30% of children under the age of 20, those numbers are similar although slightly lower in Canada. We don’t think everyone needs to be a professional athlete to be healthy. We believe with some regular exercise (and proper nutrition) you will be able to live a healthy life. We hope this app can make a small difference.

Get the app now and find your Tennis Buddy for Mondays, Running Partner for Tuesdays, Yoga Friend for Wednesdays,… you get the idea.

(We are not doctors, this is our personal view, get professional advice regarding your health. This is not intended to be another dating app, there is Tinder for that.)

App5F - FAQ's


Below is a list of frequently asked questions. If you can’t find the answer you are looking for, please fill out the form below or connect with us through Facebook or Twitter.

Do I need a Facebook account to use the 5F app?

No. All you need is an email address. Having a Facebook account certainly makes it easier and quicker to sign up since the app can take certain information directly from Facebook but it is not a requirement.

I can’t login. Why?

Make sure you have the latest version of 5F and also Facebook if you use Facebook to login. If it still doesn’t work, try deleting and reinstalling the 5F app. As long as you don’t delete your account, you won’t lose your app information. If you are still having troubles, please get in touch with us so we can fix the issue.

Why does the app not show any other profiles?

You may be the first to use the app in your area. Adjust your Discover settings by changing the age range, set the radius to the highest value and add more activities in your profile so you can search for more activities too.

Also make sure you give the app permission to access your location: On your iOS device go to: Settings, Privacy, Location Services, 5F and change the setting to “Always” or “While using the app”.

Also make sure that Background App Refresh is turned on: On your iOS device go to Settings, General, Background App Refresh, 5F and turn it on.

Consider sharing the app with others from within the side menu.

I can only search for 3 activities. I thought there are over 100?

There are over 100 activities you can add to your profile. But you can only search for other users with the same activities you have added in your profile. That way, you will only see very targeted and relevant matches. If you don’t do yoga, we won’t show you any yoga buddies.

How can I stop someone from messaging me?

Very simple: Just “Block” that person. In your message screen, tap the 3 dots in the top right corner, tap “Block User”. You can view your blocked users in the side menu. If somebody is not following the Terms of this app, please fill out our contact form with the name and details about the inappropriate behavior.

I can’t find one of my connections anymore. Why?

The other user most likely blocked your connection.

What happens when I logout of my account?

You can logout at any time if you want to take a break. Although your profile will still be visible to others at the last location you were logged in.

How do I delete my account?

Deleting an account is permanent. We cannot reinstate it so please be sure that you actually want to delete the account and not just log out for a while.

Go to the side menu, scroll to the bottom and tap Delete Account. This will delete your information, your messages and your connections.
