Co-op Garage Gym

Was wondering if anyone has done this?-
I have a 1100 sq ft shop in my back yard that I have been thinking about moving my electrical contracting business out of and turning into a large backyard garage gym. I would like to find about 8 to 10 like minded indviduals willing to contribute something for upkeep and heat (maybe around $20 a month) . I DO NOT want to compete with the local affiliates. I just want to fuel my habits. I am located on the southwest side of Fort Collins. Does Crossfit itself have any issue with this?

Damn. If I lived near you I'd be all over this.

I am in the process of doing the same thing right now. My wife and I, as well as 4 other guys rented an old office space in an industrial park and are building our private co-op

The only thing I'd be leery about with regards to doing something like this would be liability. Someone gets injured, wants to sue, etc.
