    Arrow I Tossed My Dream of Opening a Gym in the Trash & Why You Should Too

    by Matt Weik For the longest time, I wanted to open a gym. It was a goal of mine and something I wanted to pursue as a business opportunity. After much thought, research, and consideration, I flushed the idea down the toilet and threw it away like yesterday?s trash. It wasn?t that I had the

    I'd hate to burst anyone's bubble, but it's pretty much the same for any business. Every one I know of has those same problems; if you want to own and operate a business, you better be ready to work as much as needed, put as much money in as needed and just plain take all the crap that is going to come your way. Life is hard and then you die...

    Do you think in this day and age with all of the huge chain clubs charging $20/month you can open up a small gym and make enough money to live a decent life off it?

    I really don't know; I've never really looked into the costs etc to do a gym. I do know the gym I go to is like that; the base monthly fee is $13.00, I have a private locker and access to the sauna, tan booths and hydro massage, so mine is $23.00 a month. They're real busy, have nice equipment etc. I go every day at 8:00 AM; usually a slow time. They also don't allow private personal training unless they know about it; I would imagine they get a little sugar from that too.

    Ask me about electrical contracting; that I know in and out, top to bottom... LOL
