Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong area of the forum. My school is giving out $500 grants for people who are trying to start a business to improve the lives of people. Thanks to WBB, Lee Hayward, anatomy and physiology, and other various resources, I've learned a thing or two about how the body works, so I am going to apply for this grant and use it to try and improve a healthy lifestyle for people. I have an open area downstairs which I could use for a workout facility, but my main question is what equipment should I purchase to help get people on the right track to a healthier lifestyle. I plan on getting a bench and weights (mostly for myself ) but what else would you recommend?
Other than a bar and weight, a power rack seems like it would be the best and most versatile piece of equipment.
prowler or C2 rower or some other conditioning equipment
edit: just reread your post. Add a rack to your bench, bar and plates

If you're trying to start up a business type gig, $500 isn't going to last very long...at all. It'll buy a rack, and that's about it.
