Thanks all for your answers...I know there is a lot on Internet info but probably is easier read it and listen it than do it!!!

For sure...I won't quit!

Yeap! I'm buying and making some equipment already. Good set up over there. The monolift is going to be the most expensive (I think) buy, but I need to wait about a year for now because I don't have space here.

But definitely, nice garage set up like that will work!

Best of luck to you when you do start your gym. I think that starting your own one would be great. Have fun doing it, I am sure that you will.

Cool

Just a thought.

My old Gym only charged High Schoolers $10/month for many years.

Eventually they raised it to $15.

Teenagers wanting to bulk up for Football or get strong for Wrestling Generally won't linger too long at the Gym. They have too many other things on their mind.

They are basically low-maintenance/low-profile members...

{Teens don't get key membershipsósome of them can't be trusted unsupervised...}

And if you play it right, they can pay your rent and electric bill...

I don't know if you like teenagers.

Our Gym was virtually the only Heavy-Duty Weight Gym in the area for decades.

Now there are Gyms everywhere, but going to our Gym has become a Family Tradition for many.

In their advertising, they Brag that they don't have Carpeting, Saunas, Steam Rooms or Pool...

Boldly implying that such things are for Pencil Necks and the Effete and that Real Men don't need such things at their Gym.

I think you have a good point...no key, just specific hours...don't bad...I would not thrust some of my fellow soldiers with a key either. We can get rowdy some times. But I'm sure that I can spread the word around meets, do some special invitations, open house in the community, stuff like that. I'm open to any ideas right now.

At this point I'm just buying some used plates, bars, sledge, looking into a monolift, and some computer programs.

Will be posting some pics later during this whole crusade...more to come!

Good deal SaxonViolence. Will help a lot with new ideas...

I already bought a welder and have some scrap metal plus plywood for some "equipment".

I'd definitely have to agree with demographics. It's like real estate, location is everything! Without being too stereotypical you need this type of establishment around physical folk, hardworking blue collars for example.

Reminds me of time spent in Western PA (a very laborious and industrial part of our country), there were 3 gyms in the small suburb of Pittsburgh, Monroe Ville, and 2 were quite hardcore, one scared me. I mean seriously, how many computer jockeys and pencil pushers lift, at all (no offense, there are exceptions).

In my moderately blue collar town of 500,000 people there's only one hardcore powerlifting gym and the owner says he sustains 350 clients or so each month.

Not to discourage you. I'd love to own a gym.

Yes a hobby that one can make money with, obviously the real coin is in the commercial health clubs, where people can feel strong and manly by lifting pencils

207.5 lbs, 1 bar, 2 collars and 1 cat (not really) closer to my adventure. Get this for $100 including a crappy bench. That one goes to the trash probably.
