Hi Miso

This could be a three month project, not a short answer at all, so it would help if you could give me some specifics.

But very broadly, the first thing is to decide what your objectives are. Are you doing it to differentiate the workplace from competitors, to attract employees or are you doing it to genuinely invest in your employees' health? Once that is decided, then you can begin to put together a plan of action and then all the assumptions come into play.

The obvious first assumption is that the model is viable. In otherwords, you assume a cost of running the gym, then you assume how much money you can make through selling memberships (remember you can't charge a lot to your own employees). So you have to assume how many people will come in the first place. Then you assume what your maximum capacity is, which dictates your assumption around how many staff you need. ONce that is done, you do a budget, which is full of assumptions, some of which are more based on fact than others. Finally, you assume that people will continue to come in increasing numbers, because opening a gym is not something you do as a short term venture - it's long term and that means 'predicting' the future.

Good luck
