If you don't already have any equipment you will have to think about what you want to get in there to get started? You can also add more equipment as you go, but you will of course need some basic stuff to get started (squat racks, dumbbells, plates, barbells, dumbbells, etc. etc…). Then you have your flooring for the gym, do you want rubber? Turf installation? The cost for that will need to be added in as well. There will be an upfront cost to get some merchandise in the gym to sell and then of course if you price things properly you will get a profit off of that.
