The Gym concept developed from the common issue facing students, affordable gym facilities and time. The concept was established to cater for the students budget by being partially covered by the polytechnic and student fees.
Its location and accessibility meant that students and staff could use the facilities around class times as well as after hours. The benefits of such an establishment would be;
Can be flexible around child care arrangements
Time between classes
Can be scheduled into study routines
An excellent option for stress
Being fit and healthy stimulates focus and learning
The Purpose of this business plan is to provide the Polytechnic with a outlined proposal of this venture in order to obtain their support and funding.
We are hoping to be established by the third trimester of 2010 and operate fully by the start of 2011. We plan to promote the facilities to all students and staff of the Polytechnic and then out to local colleges which in turn will help promote the polytechnic to school leavers and the wider community.

The Gym will be under the current ownership and structure of the Polytechnic. The management rights will be leased to a separate entity i.e. contractor with restrictions on operating standards.
