    Lets say you have a concrete floor space near 2000 square feet.


    What bare minimum things would you put on that floor? What stuff would make you sign up for a membership on the spot?

    Floor padding, all black
    Olympic Platform w/ bumper plates
    Log - http://www.flexcart.com/members/elitefts/default.asp?m=PD&cid=305&pid=1112
    Pair of squat cages
    Loud sound system
    Complimentary chalk
    Dumbbells up to 150lbs


    Do you care if there is a locker room? What if it's just a one hole restroom? If there is room for one or two machines, what would they be?

    If I had real limited space like that I'd set it up like those high school and college athlete gyms you see with just rows of power racks, oly platforms and removable, adjustable benches. As many of those as I could fit in the space.

    db up to 150 is too light for a gym with strong dudes in it.

    Marble floors imported from Romania created by Romanian women with mustaches in the areas where lifting will not be done. The walls will be painted by Michelangelo and the Ceiling to be painted by Picasso. The gym will be divided into four quadrants.

    Quadrant 1:
    Hot tub with tiles imported from Greece
    steam room with extra steam
    dry sauna with a comfortable wooden chair
    a shower in which there is no shower head, just a bunch of holes in the ceiling from where water drops (to simulate rain)

    Quadrant 2:
    Flat/Incline/Decline bench press racks
    flat/incline/decline benches
    full set of Olympic weights
    dumbells going up to 220 (for the day that i can actually do it)
    padded flooring

    quadrant 3:
    two squatting cages, so i can squat with my bros
    leg curl, leg press, and leg extension machine
    padded flooring so i can drop the weight and grunt
    cable machine and any other machine that is non girly and womanlike

    quadrant 4:
    giant wall for climbing
    mini gym bar which includes place to keep all my supplements, shakers, and midget named Moses to constantly clean all my equipment.

    there will be chalk, and straps provided daily to me by my workout assistants. There will be a a large screen television in each quadrant. The entire gym will have very fancy and expensive speakers so when i need to get pumped up to bench press 195 for the first time, I will be able to blast my techno music as loudly as needed. UNCE UNCE UNCE UNCE. oh yes, this would be the greatest gym ever.
