Describe the objective of the promotion.
At Companhia Athletica Gym some members were lacking motivation. Without the proper information, they expected results in only a few weeks, and because that didn’t happen they lacked motivation to carry on exercising. In some cases they even gave up altogether. The action’s objective was to lessen the number of these cases and show members that health is something conquered in the long term with lots of efforts.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
To solve the problem, we created two good-humoured and differentiated calendars to the gym. One contained a male silhouette, and the other a female one. In January we see the overweight silhouettes, but as the months go by, the results begin to appear and they get in shape. The calendars were posted in all Companhia Athletica’s branches. Besides that, students also received their own calendar.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
The action was well received by the target. People that were not going as often started dedicating time and effort to their goal. Dropouts decreased by 45%. The message made clear that the best way to get fit is by following the recommendations of professionals instead of worrying about immediate results.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
The promotion method was relevant because the brand conveyed its message in a different way. It became clear to the target that health and fitness cannot be acquired in just a few weeks.
