    It's actually for a business class I'm taking in the evening. We have to write a business plan for a business we want to start.

    I've always daydreamed about opening my own gym here where I live. It would be 90% geared towards weight lifting, mainly free-weights. I'd also have a treadmill, stairclimber, and stationary bike for some cardio. It would be a small place with small lockerroom, more of a changing room, and a couple of showers (M & F obviously). My biggest goal is to keep the membership as cheap as possible.

    So I'm looking for some ideas on the name.

    I was thinking keep it simple and obvious like THE WEIGHT ROOM.

    I've also thought about THE BOILER ROOM. But I really don't think that would be good, the name doesn't give a clue to what the business is.

    What do you all think?

    Its a class...keep it simple. Your not being graded on creative names, its a business class. If your so inclined, look in a thesaurus to find alternative words for common ones (gym, weights, fitness etc)

    Mile High Fitness...Rocky Mt. Gym? a name with a generic slogan is nice anyway, give it name to give potential growth to other towns/citys ...just my thoughts, GL.
