Executive Summary

Business Overview/ Purpose of Plan

Jim Active has recently won the lotto and is wishing to begin his own business. Jim plans to begin a gym in Canberra, ACT. Jim aims to promote healthier living by providing access to weight machines, exercise equipment and professional advice. Jim Active (head personal trainer/owner) has 5 years experience in person training to offer those who would like it. This is to assist consumers in achieving their goals and also to reduce risk of injury to consumers and staff. JAG being a local gym supports its community thru local sport team and individual athlete training. JAG aims to create its own unique environment where every consumer and staff member can have a positive experience. In the future JAG aspires to open a large chain of gyms in Canberra and compete with gyms such as Alive Health and Fitness and Fitness First.

JAG is funded only by its owner (Jim Active). In the future when expansion will be considered JAG will move from a sole trader to a public company that will take on shareholders to raise expansion capital.

This marketing plan has been designed as a starting point for JAG and will be used in the short run.
