Imagine finding and booking a coach or trainer the same way you may find a potential date online—based on shared interests with the ability to meet wherever works best for you. That is exactly how Find Your Trainer works.

The service matches athletes with local trainers based on goals, lifestyle and personality based on a short quiz. Once paired, you can book the trainer to come to your home, office, nearby park or a gym—no membership required. Find Your Trainer also includes a variety of running coaches based on the event you are training for.

Right now the service is available in 300 cities across 10 states, with hopes of expansion into other areas soon. Each session costs $50, with 10% off if you book four or more at once. You can pay directly via the site, which means no need to carry cash with you. Just bring your running shoes and get ready to work!
