Please provide a few sentences to sum up the most important aspects of your App.

This is an app to help find the perfect workout partner.  Potential "gym pals" are tailor made to the users specifications.  Users will be able to find the perfect workout partner by using the location of the user, age, weight, schedule, and overall workout goals and expectations.  


Please provide a description of your App in 500-1,000 words. Be sure to include at least 1) what it does, 2) why people will want it (benefits), and 3) how you will sustain it (explain business model).

1) The app will use location based technology to group users based on their preference of mileage.  The app will offer numerous filters to find the perfect workout partner.  The filters that will be used are not limited to, but will include; age, sex, weight, available times to work out, workout goals, and workout plans.  

2) Everyone knows that working out with a partner is better than by yourself.  A partner motivates you, encourages you, and helps you improve your workouts.  Having an app like Gym Pal helps you find a workout partner and someone to help you train without the cost of a personal trainer.  This app will benefit people who enjoy working out with a partner, and those who wish to workout, but lack a partner to work out with.  It will promote healthy lifestyles, and spark social exchanges between people who enjoy fitness.

3) The app will be sustained through ad revenue.  We feel that a free-to-download business model makes the most sense.  We want to promote as many users as possible to try our app.  We felt that even a minimal charge of $0.99 for the app would hinder many users from trying it out, and leave the pool of potential "gym pals" to be smaller than it could be.  The main goal for our app is to bring people together to help promote healthy lifestyles, and a free-to-download business model is the best way to bring that experience to mobile phones.
