I agree with the auto drafts. Quite a few people have said that. I wouldn't expand until there were no more hours in the day and no more room for adding people or classes. Thanks Mike

Even then you can still do piggy backing squats!

Also look for a place that has attached a large (low traffic use) parking lot or other space outdoors to utilize when not bad weather and you have larger groups. If it rains....well there are the piggy backing squats again.

+1 on the large outside area if you can find it.

A good place where you can get tire flips etc. going can really help prolong the lifespan if a small-ish space. Sprints, tire flips, relays etc. Good way to maintain and even grow your gym while you build capital.

Best of luck.
