Question: If the worldÂs most successful team of video fitness instructors got together to create a fitness Mecca and could choose any location in America, where would they build it, and what would they call it? The answer to part one is simple: the profoundly scenic Fountain Walk building at Aquarium Wharf in Downtown Charleston, SC. Everyone who visits the gorgeous complex marvels at the harbor view vista, and this team wants to build a health club members and visitors alike will be eager to enter for the environment alone. In addition to the spectacular views of the bridge to the north and the cityscape to the east, these fitness innovators have designed a club bursting with interestingly substantive bells and whistles. And what are they calling their work of art? V. Simply ÂVÂ (www. justv. net). Co-founder and Sales Manager Elaine Whitfield explains, ÂIn naming our club, we wanted to ensure the community realized that there would be nothing typical about our facilities or services, so a typical name just didnÂt cut it for us.Â After consulting with two of the areas top branding agencies, the team arrived at V for its symbolic connection to balance, strength, and purpose Â the three terms that comprise VÂs client mission. ÂWhile our corporate image is being developed for a national audience, potential members will be excited to learn that our purest emphasis will be the delivery of mission with the highest level of excellence this state has ever seen,Â adds Whitfield.
Just who are these celebrity instructors? ThatÂs the truly exciting part of the V equation. Founded in 1979, TheFIRMÂ® began producing the worldÂs most successful workout video series, and theyÂre still the all-time best selling workout videos today. The V team consists of the top instructors in the history of TheFIRMÂ®, including current Firm lead instructor and spokesperson Jennifer Carman. In all, 7 Alumni from TheFIRMÂ® comprise the core of VÂs training staff. At the very heart of the team is V co-founder Tracie Long, star 4 videos and widely recognized as CharlestonÂs leading authority on health and fitness. ÂWe plan to offer the first functional, upscale adult fitness club in Charleston.Â says Long. And if youÂre wondering if there is a manÂs touch in the V team, fear not. VÂs President Steve deGuzman rounds out the team of founders. In the early 90Âs deGuzman made his mark on the international fitness scene as a co-founder of LifeQuestÂ® Fitness and in 2000 he served on the IHRSA faculty in San Francisco where he taught a course on Public Relations to club owners from around the world. According to deGuzman, ÂV will cater to the mature audience that is tired of the K-mart styled health club of the 90Âs, professionals who expect the same standard of style and substance in their health club as they do in the restaurants and shops they frequent. Great atmosphere, beautiful visuals, fine attention to detail, and the absolute best service available. Consider our staff of experts. Consider our vistas. Consider our facilities. It simply doesnÂt get any better.Â
