    I also live in a city without WL gym.
    I my case, I bought a 130 kg bumpler plates kit, two EVA mats and began to learn WL by watching videos.

    This second choice, to me, was a mistake, because I don´t have a good self-learning sense in terms of body language. I discovered this after some injuries on my shoulders...

    After this I pay mothly for one coach who lives in another city, but I go at his gym one time at each two months for presencial instructions and corrections. The remaining contact is through videos that I send to him.

    Another aspect that I noticed is that snatch and clean & jerk are complex moviments much more dificult to be learned when compared to other compound exercises.

    So, in you case, IMHO, you could start by buying a home kit and contacting a good coach for the first steps. At the same time you can study business-related stuff for a WL gym. Thinking about providing continous flow in your business, probably you will have to deal with crossfit too.

    Good luck!

    Do you think I could justbhire a coach. Actually, I dont care making profit. If it pays my rent and some food it would be more than enough. I just want the gym and the coach to exist.

    I have the same problem... Currently just trying to work with what I got (condo gym) - using barbells & dumbbells, but there's no smith machine so that's a bummer. Sometimes my brother spots me but in general I've been trying to build upon other forms of strength such as pull-ups and triceps dips. Gonna get free weekly membership from October onwards so that's a start !
    P.S I also have a blog about being a high school student with demanding studies while pursuing fitness: studentlifefitness.blogspot.com do check it out! Any feedback or comments would be MUCH appreciated :)

    My home town boasts of an Olympic weightlifting gym. A bunch of local kids are taught the Snatches and C&Js there. So far so good. Still, it would be great if some rich Santa would donate a couple of lightweight Oly training bars with standard bumper plates and other equipment, like pro Jerk blocks etc., but, unfortunately, no one seems interested in the sport in these times of economic instability, even despite of growing trendiness of teh Crossfit in more prosperous communities, lol.

    If there are no Olympic gyms in your city just work out at home, that or join a gym where you can get an Olympic workout done.
