Anyone know a place that has them in stock that delivers? Is a $1,500 budget good enough?
I have put in maybe 5-6 gyms in high schools over my time in them and even ran powerlifting meets for 10 years. I used a company here in Houston called Promaxima. https://www.promaxima.com The make all of their own equipment and do a huge business here in Texas. The equipment is very good quality. I would suggest a power rack, movable/adjustable bench and a set of weights.
You will have to call to get prices. But they are pretty inexpensive.
