Careers in Weightlifting


#1

Hi, I'm still in highschool but am curiou sto what I could do in this hobby. My biggest thought right now would be coaching highschool/college athletes until I've saved enough money to open my own facility for power/olympic lifting. Basically after I'm 30 I'd like at least 40 grand a year. How much money does it typically take to get a facility started? Are my goals resonable? The amount made is the least important part. I really am mostly interested in being able to afford a house and making my money through weights. Really I also want a 250+ gallon aquarium too, but having a house pretty much dwarfs that expence.

Anyone have advice/success stories?
