c. low: 1-2 times a week
d. nil: 0 times

2. desire to get in shape
a. very strong

(you can map this with the frequency of their work out above).

3. active athletes who just want to get better
4. avoid the embarrassment of being fat etc
5. health reasons: improve their cardiovascular health, reduce pressure on joints etc, avoid heart problems cholesterol etc

Domain Expertise vs technical expertise
1. Some will be very knowledgable with working out.. already have worked out for years and years.. but despite that, they lack some fundamental principles in body building that this app could be very informative in (ie pull vs push work out.. carb vs protein diet.. breathing techniques.. proper form techniques.. etc)
 others will not know how to do a single push up or pull up
2. Most will already understand the value of apps and posses some.. so they already have at least a basic knowledge of how to use apps.   but there will be a range here too.. some will use apps every day, and for others.. this could be their first app..
an interesting case also will be people who already use *other* work out apps such as ifitness and ipump stuff..
