Thought you guys would like this! I opened up in December. I've been running my own training business for 3 years. Finally took that big leap and got my own place!

Here it is from scratch.

Here is a video I made shortly after we opened. Things are a lot more organized now but this is the most recent video I have.

Some pictures working on the place. Seriously a ridiculous amount of work. A lot harder then I thought.... Loading cable stacks, weights, machines, platforms etc putting them in the gym and assembling them is no joke.

Looks great.... where's the monolift?

I take it you are in Salt Lake?
I'll be out that way this summer, hopefully I'll be able to come in and get a training session on the road.....

Looks awesome. Wish there were more places like that around here.
I travel to SLC every Xmas to visit my wife's family.
Will you guys offer guest passes etc.? Or more of a team training atmosphere/personal training facility?

Thanks guys! May possibly get a monolift extension installed in the white power rack. Yes I'm located in Salt Lake City. My gym is not open to the public, its private for my clientele. But you guys are welcome to come lift with my crew and I here when you are around! Just send me a message on here when you're in town!

Marketing this gym has been going really well. My niche is going against the grain of the mainstream health and fitness industry and making myself completely different than a golds gym, ballys, etc. If I can get someone through the doors in here my close rate is 90%+ so far.

I've got a monolift attachment for sale that would work perfectly in that rack. Send me an email at zwhalen0@gmail.com if you have any interest, I'd make you a really good deal.

In total, how much does something like that cost? Obviously I know I don't have thee money now, but eventually, I want to open my own gym.
