Matchup Fitness is Now Stridekick

Matchup Fitness is Now Stridekick

Attention all steppers, we’ve officially changed our name from Matchup Fitness to Stridekick! We’ve been holding on to this secret for a bit now, and could not be more excited to share it with all of you. Over the past couple of months we’ve been going through a rebrand. With our new name comes a new logo, fun designs and an updated look and feel to the app. On top of the rebrand we’ve also added two new features: push notifications and in-app content.

Now, you may be wondering what led to this name change (or you might already have a hunch). We wanted to move away from the dating site connotation and lead with a name that better aligned with our company goals. With the name Matchup, users and potential clients often reported confusion. It has not been an uncommon occurrence to see support tickets asking to cancel a account or messages asking the team for help finding a partner — leaving Stridekick to explain that we provide online fitness buddies only. Starting today, May 2nd, we’ll be known as Stridekick!
