You might check with your local community college and see if you could offer some of these classes in partnership with them on the non-credit/continuing education side. Might give you an idea of how much interest there is for the topics you are wanting to train. Who knows, down the road they may become a customer if you get successful.
No, just geeking out.
I've taught firefighting tactics and survival tecniques on the side for years. Mostly on contract but I've also worked with the local CC. I also do some personal training at my gym and I focus on the kind of stuff described above (large. multi-joint strength/conditioning moves). Most of the participants are regular housewives or office workers who enjoy "boot camp" style workouts. You gotta really hustle if you want to make much money on either.
I'll bet the start-up costs would be staggering. I think the real way to make a go of it would be to start very small and work out of a shed somewhere, run a good web-site and build on success.
