I am considering another workout slot in the mornings at 10:00 AM. This time would work best for me but understand many people can not workout until the evenings. The only issue I have is if I do this, I would like to know which persons would come at what time and also know that I would have at least 2 persons for each workout. Please let me know who and what time each of you would come. Also the weekends would be still set for 1 workout time in the morning only.
I am currently thinking of more flexibility. As of right now and when I started this program, I wanted a limited number of motivated people (8 - 10) and provide them with the tools to accomplish the goals of this program. It seems to me that there can be and is several more interested people. As for now I want to purchase 1 more Rower, 6 - 8 boxes, a few more kettlebells or dumbells, 1 more bar and 1 more pullup bar. I would also like to get some matting as well. The point is we still will get what we want and need from the workout sessions but need to improvise. This is OK, especially to keep costs low.
My question to all of you is what is your goals and what do you want when you come to work out? It seems that most want to workout and go home within one hour. This is perfect but if you want any individual advice I want you know know I am here. Also I would love to have a small BOX (building, gym or even detached RV garage) that we can make a gym out of, only. I have thought of purchasing a custom lot and building a ome with a separate RV garage to allow in and out entry for those who want to come and get their workout in. But this would force us to sell this home which we really love. My issue is I think this can be huge up here in Estrella. I also want to provide a place to do the workouts with all the equipment and allow for 8 hours of open gym a day. How can we accomplish this? I need all your advice. I have my Certification in CrossFit and would like to be an affiliate which would allow for a mass influx of interested people. Does anyone have any idea's? All we would need is a 700 - 1000 square foot facility. My garage is 500 square feet if everything is removed. This is to the step up at the rear of the garage. A 750 sq ft place would allow for pullup bar system, a couple ropes, 5 rowers (that can be folded and stored, 10 ring attachments weights, boxes and storage with still allowing 10 people to workout at the same time. Many gyms are this size and have 50 members. We would need approximately 30 paying members at $150 each. This would be $4500 a month. We can employ a student or someone up here to keep the gym open for 8 hours a day at 20 days a month. This would be about $1280.
It is absolutely a real goal and adventure. As I have stated before I am not looking to make money, but the opportunity to provide something to a community that will be a big hit and success. Does anybody have ideas? Is anybody in on a joint venture to make this happen? I truly believe it will get big and we can ultimately have 50 + members, a paid position for someone and all the equipment and space needed to provide a great resource to us.
The cost of 1 employee at 40 hours a week, my certs, insurance, affiliate and website would be approx. $20,000 a year. At 30 people at $150 a month would create $54,000. This would give us about $2800 a month for rent and equipment. Give your thoughts.
