well its time for me to regain some direction and would appriciate some opinions.

i have a bachelor of human movement (major in exercise science) soon to gain level 1 olympic lifting coaching qualifications, looking into gaining gymnastic coaching qualifications
currently i am working in a personal training studio (i hate addmiting that) another gym where i am constantly battling to get people to get out of the leg press and do some deadlifting and squating with the occasional win for my cause. i have also been aproached by a rugby team to become a strength and conditioning coach for their junior athletes who are showing potential for the future (im very exited about this)

i am thinking about starting a gym that focuses on training for athletic performance, utilising olympic lifting, gymnastic skills, and strong man type training, essenctily everthing exept for machines,
how ever i would also like to continue my education possible looking into bio-mechanics or endocronology. Obvoulsy bio-mechancis would be very appicable with gymnastics and oly lift,however hormonal responces do pipe my intrest too.

so what do i do? set up a gym (knowing full well that most gyms go bust quite quickly) futher my education and be a poor uni student in the process, both or something completely different?

Start Small, build a good loyal clientel based around your performace as an instructor,let it grow through word of mouth and expand as nescessary.Continue your studies part time and reaccess whether it's worth going the Gym all out or Study all out.
Plenty of Small Gym/Studios making a living in Sydney,should be enough market share for one more.
Good Luck
