I wanted to bring this thread back to life, and also mention that in my research I've found a huge discrepency in what people are paying for gym memberships. Some people are forced to pay upwards of $75/month, which seems ludacris to me. I pay $110 a YEAR to go to a gym which has tons of equipment and almost everything I could ever need.
I also looked into local warehouses for lease. I found a couple units for lease in the 2k-3.5k sf range that were very affordable, as in less than $1500/month. It will be hard to find a place that's cheap but just nice enough and not in a area where people wouldn't feel comfortable, but it's possible.
I'm still very interested in everyone's thoughts on my ideas, if anyone has any more feedback.
