   Executive Summary

    The Ultimate Recreation and Fitness Center Inc. conceptual design is to be a full service multi sport complex situated along major transportation corridor in a community of over 100,000 year round residences. Ideally there will not be other competing sports facilities within a 3 hour drive via an interstate highway. This plan will be used to define the scope of the facilities and services included in the project plan, as well as a means of gaining the necessary investments to open the facility. On a continuing basis, the business framework will be used in the evaluation of The Ultimate Recreation and Fitness Center Inc. mission, goals, and objectives to insure it is meeting or exceeding its projected revenues and expenses.

    The key to success for a new organization, like the Ultimate Recreation and Fitness Center Inc., is dependent on their ability to develop and market effectively a 24 hour/7 day/52 week fun atmosphere where people will want to assemble and participate in a wide variety of:

  • Organized sports,
  • Recreational activities,
  • Fitness and wellness programs,
  • Artistic, theatrical, and social events.

    It is vital to the success of such a project that facility management hires qualified, certified, and knowledgeable personnel to staff, organize, and run of in house programs and leagues in addition to leasing space to not-for-profit organizations that sponsor USA Olympic venues.
