The paper 'Redevelopment of Jetts Fitness Club" is a good example of a management case study. Jetts Fitness Club is one of the many fitness clubs of the Jetts fitness club franchise located all around Australia. This is a gymnasium frequented by people from the local community of all ages. This particular club can brag to be one of the most technologically advanced 24 hr. health and fitness clubs in the country. Clients are unable to fully get the Jetts fitness club experience due to the limited floor space housing the facility.
This has led to very tight schedules and appointment cancellations due to the increased membership. Despite the cutting edge technology, capitalizing on it has been a problem due to crowding with every member seeking an opportunity to have the experience. There is a fitness craze all over the country and this is an opportunity to tap into new sources of revenue. Additional floor space is required to accommodate this euphoric demand for health and fitness services which will make Jetts Fitness the leaders of this industry. This feasibility study report analyses the need for the re-development and or renewal of facilities in the club so as to capitalize on the demand for our services. Background The gymnasium is located at (Shops 1-4,584 Grimshaw, Street, Bundoora, and VIC 3083) adjacent to… and houses a boxing ring, swimming pool, treadmills, punching bags, weights and an assortment of various bodybuilding equipment.
The gymnasium has 400 members with an average attendance of 200 people per day. Scope of the project The scope of this project is how to increase the facility’ s capacity and improve the quality of its amenities. The main aim of this report was to gather views of the users on how to go about accommodating the growing number of people requiring fitness services and for an appraisal on a planned facelift of the facility.
The target is to raise the capacity to comfortably accommodate 400 members per day without crowding and better services.
