Gyms Fairly Used Equipment Business Plan Requirements:

Before you start your business plan, I would advise you undertake the following homework. These are requirements that will enable you come out with a good business plan for this business.
1). Get a general overview of this business.    There is a wide array of gym equipment available to different athletes and persons. Fitness equipment can vary depending on the type of exercise that it provides and the place where the athlete/person performs the exercise. Type of machines can also determine type of exercise to be done on it.
On the other hand, type of exercise also determines the types of machines to be used. Athletes interested in aerobic exercise can choose from a variety of machines, including treadmills, row machines and elliptical trainers. An athlete interested in weight training will tend to use exercise equipment that provides resistance, such as free weights or weightlifting machines.

These are the things you must find out before you start up this business. You can pay us to do this survey for you.
2). Determine your market segmentation.  As indicated above, there are types of exercises and types of machines for different exercises and a combination of some. This is the segregation you will need to work on to determine your market segmentation. A set of light dumbbells, for instance, might provide resistance for weight training but also can double as a set of hand weights for a runner.

Home exercise equipment, for example, will tend to have multiple functions – versatile equipment is far more feasible.

3). The product –  From what you have above, determine:

  • What the products should be.
  • The Source of the product – dumbbell manufacturers, barbell manufacturers, kettlebell manufacturers, fitness equipment manufacturers in china, gym fitness equipment manufacturers in china, spinning bike manufacturers. These are some of the machines you need and their manufacturers. You can contact us for more details at a minimal cost.
  • The combinations of the product – Work out what machines and exercises that can be combined and for who.
  • Do some survey about the market – the market for these products are becoming large in Nigeria and globally. Find out who and where they are sold around you. Who are the big players in this market? These are your competitors. In this connection, what competitive advantage do you think you have.
  • Think about the marketing strategies for these products. Considering your competitive advantage, the influence of big players and the market share they already have, what marketing strategies can you apply now to win some market share, at lease a good turnover to remain in the business. Even if you are coming in as a big player, importer, wholesaler etc., there are  applicable issues you still have to deal with to stand firm in a business like this.

3.) Plan for your CAPEX & OPEX  –  With the survey you have done above, now Plan for the two aspects of the business expenses usually involved in any business. These are your capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operating expenditure (OPEX).
4.) Your SWOT Analysis: It’s time for you to evaluate yourself/business by defining your SWOT Analysis. This means you have to define your strength in this business, Weakness, Opportunities and threats to survival.
5). Do some feasibility/Financial Estimates about the expected Turnover (revenue) for the period covered by the plan. To envision what the business will be like in two years or three will be better. Do also estimates about the cost of sales, that is, the cost of purchases and their carriages that will generate the turnover you have estimated already.
6). With all you have in points 5 above, work out a little breakeven analysis.  This is to equate your cost with your revenue. Where your cost = revenue is the breakeven point. At any point here where your cost > revenue, the business would not show any good sing to continue in it. But at any time where your cost < revenue or revenue > cost, then you know that the business will be profitable.
7). Do a small Income Statement as an appraisal of the business. A 20% to 30% gross margin is very good, while 10% to 15% net profit margin is also good. With these you can now plan to eliminate wastes and take other measures to improve your turnover and your returns.
8). Do all the assessments and  feasibility analysis and write the Executive summary as the last thing. The executive summary is always the summary of the entire estimates.

9). Remember that writing business plan doesn’t finish. Watch your business plan, adjust and move forward.
Let’s introduce the business plan which you can adjust to fit your business.
