Workout Gym Business Plan
The Mountain Brook Fitness Center is a thriving business-person’s club but is also one of the only family-focused clubs in the Monroe area. Fifty percent of our members are under the age of 45 and have young children. Currently, the center has 900 members. A center membership is $800 a year. The Mountain Brook Fitness Center wants to add an additional 300 members with families over the next three years.
One of the keys to success of the Mountain Brook Fitness Center is the ability to offer reasonably priced childcare in a safe environment while a parent works out in the fitness center. The club has increased the size of its fitness center and added more equipment, but many members would be unable to use the center if they didn’t have a service to watch their children while they exercised. In fact, the service has become so popular that the clubhouse has outgrown its existing childcare facilities. Offering childcare has kept many members coming to the club. The lack of current space for a larger childcare area has even kept some prospective members from joining.
Mountain Brook Fitness Center will expand and create a larger childcare facility. In addition, new equipment will be purchased for the childcare center. The childcare center can currently care for 30 children but only five infants. The new facility will be able to handle up to 60 children including 15 infants. The childcare facility expansion will be funded with a short-term loan.
