Who are they? What are their pain points? Where they spend most of their time.

If you want to start a business or blog around the fitness industry. You can not target every person. And One has to specify their age, gender, location, and many more. 

You have to be specific. Do you want to target busy business professionals or busy working moms?

The more you are specific about your audiences. The better you understand their problem and provide a solution to them.
