Who is the target audience for your idea and how does it inspire the end user to lead a healthier life?

The target audience is anyone who wants to stay active while being able to socialize. Examples include: anyone looking for a running buddy to keep them accountable, anyone who wants to find a local recreational sports league, anyone wanting to start a bowling team and are looking for players in the neighborhood.

This app/website is designed to find a match for your fitness needs.  Users would create a profile and put in what they are seeking.  The app would find matches based on location.  The goal of this app is to connect people through exercise, and to promote fitness as a social activity.

What early, lightweight experiment can you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

Surveying people at local parks and fitness centers that have a lot of team related recreational activity to understand how people got involved with the teams.
