    Online estate sales from foreclosed gyms would be a good place to start

    how much money you got to blow?

    bare bone style gym is pretty cheap to fill. its when you start adding machines...

    do youhave your niche for training already? makes it easier to arm your gym if you know your target clientele

    Athletes. There's going to be a few personal trainer buddies i have ready to work for me. And were training football players and people who actually come to make gains. It's a more of a private gym, im having only 30-50 members at first. I dont want idiot getting hurt at my gym because theyve never lifted.

    Hey man, definitely don't overlook sites like Craigslist. You can find some KILLER deals on gym EQ with gym closings etc. You can get some great deals on like-new stuff.
