5 tips to be organised when in the process of the new gym!
Creating your gym can be really challenging. The list of tasks is endless (location selection, identify a budget, renovation, equipment selection, identify pricing etc.) and the fact that the tasks have to be performed in a specific period before the opening deadline with little to no business knowledge can have an impact on creating a successful new business. Read below for 5 tips to help you stay organized while in the process.
5 tips for better task management
1. Get everything together
Take an empty piece of paper. Make a list of all the tasks needed. Think of the whole process from day 0 till the opening day. Visualize, think and just take notes of all the tasks that pop up in your mind.
2. Create a to-do list
Use an app for that. Add all the tasks found on step 1 and divide them into the following 4 categories: (A)Time-consuming Tasks, (B) Urgent & important, (C) Essentials that can be done anytime, (D) Miscellaneous.
3. Create a Timeline
For every task you have, you need to note their dates on a calendar in order to have a weekly plan. Make sure you have a good timeline that makes your opening date realistic.
4. Cooperate with Specialists
Notify experts about your vision, timeline and tasks. Inform them about the deadlines you have put for each task. You need to assign responsibilities to the right people. For example PIS Fitness can take care of flooring, gym equipment, mirrors, locker rooms and education of the personnel. Hire specialists to get the job done effectively and with precision.
5. Follow your instinct
Some people/companies give you a more trustworthy feeling than others. Some products amaze you (wow factor) and others don’t. Trust your gut and find companies/people you can rely on and build a good relationship to work towards a common goal, to build the gym of your dreams.
