The One Man Gym

The one man gym is that gym or box where the owner does practically everything himself, from the instructor to the receptionist, from cleaning to accounting, from social management to marketing, from public relations to nursing. In short, he single-handedly does the work of an entire team with the result that, after the initial enthusiasm for his project, he finds himself trapped there, working 18 hours a day and with neither a social nor a family life. 

In the end, in addition to complaining about his situation, he ends up in burnout, almost destroying his dream and finding himself with an empty gym. So what can he do to avoid this most common epilogue from the outset? The answer is: 'get organised and delegate'.

Getting organised

Organisation to plan, increase productivity and consequently turnover and growth. Company organisation has the ultimate aim of increasing the value of the service to be offered to its customers. Being organised means having skills and knowledge related to the work you are doing, as well as mastery of the time required and the ability to relate to all the other colleagues and collaborators with whom you need to come into contact.

Organisational principles are basically methodologies, approaches and management techniques designed and implemented to achieve the business purpose easily. Some of the principles of business organisation are: dividing the company into departments, defining roles and tasks in individual departments, learning to delegate and basing the organisation on delegation. But also aim for standardisation of processes; clearly define performance indicators for measurement.


Delegating is a fundamental skill for any leader. It consists of assigning specific responsibilities and authority to team members or employees so that they can take an active role in achieving the organisation's goals.

The importance of delegating is manifold. First, it allows leaders to focus on activities that require their level of expertise, experience and authority, while assigning other team members the responsibilities that are best suited to their skills and abilities. In this way, wasted time and resources are avoided and efficiency and productivity can be maximised.

Secondly, delegating can increase employee involvement and improve team morale. When team members feel involved and empowered, they may feel more motivated to achieve the organisation's goals. The result is greater job satisfaction and consequently, higher productivity.

Delegating can promote the professional development of employees. When team members are entrusted with responsibility and authority, they have the opportunity to develop new skills and gain new experience. This can lead to greater confidence and self-esteem, as well as greater preparation for future career opportunities.

Finally, delegating can help foster a collaborative and supportive working environment.

That's it.,A simple explanation of why it is necessary to organise and delegate and, of course, to do so in such a way that everything runs smoothly and one does not have to do the same work several times, either due to a lack of trust or due to a lack of clear communication.
