Well lets get some of the story that led to this idea first.
I work in the amusement business with my unlce (he took over the business after the owner died). One day during lunch the 4 of us were sitting down eating and the one guy was telling me how nice his gym was. I agreed and said mine was a rip off but I had no other choice. He then suggested I start my own gym. Its not a particularly bad idea however their are several issues.
I have no idea what types of responsibilites you would have, or any types of liscenses or insurance I would have to carry.
I dont have the money (not even close) and would image something like this would cost atleast 30,000-40,000 to get up and running. So this fact alone makes it 8-10 years before this would happen.
I would want to make it an equal oppourtunity gym. I would cater to everyone basically. But quality equpiment would be a must, I myself am so sick of working out with bent barbells and dumbells. The upkeep on the gym I currently go to is horrible, the same 4 barbells have been bent for going on 2 years now. His fix, he bought one single new 7ft oly bar bell.
I'm pretty sure it would be fun, and I wouldnt have to pay to lift anymore
But I just dont know about the responsibilites of it all. I mean of course they would have to sign waivers and all that jazz....
Another thing that worries me... our gym has 24 hour acces which is nice. But I was thinking, someone could just go down in the middle of the night and rob the place and they would never know because its dark and the cameras cant see.
