Fitness concept You Vs Yourself has joined the lineup at Camp North End.

Charlotte native Curtis Walls is behind that 3,000-square-foot sports-performance training and fitness gym.

It is located at 1701 North Graham St., Suite 112, in the Keswick District of Camp North End.

This is the second location for Walls; his first opened at the Visual and Performing Arts Center in uptown Charlotte earlier this year.

“I’m big on intentionality, in all aspects of life, and it made sense to align with a like-minded place such as Camp North End,” Walls says.

He drew on his diverse background to shape YVY. He’s worked as a landscape architect, played professional football and filled various roles at NASCAR, including pit crew member and sports performance coach. Walls has also led a local nonprofit and founded a lifestyle, entertainment and events agency.

This concept will push members to strive for their personal best in fitness.

“From NASCAR drivers to new moms looking to get back in shape, and everyone in between, it’s crucial that people see You Vs Yourself as more than just a place to lift a weight,” Walls says. “They come to be part of a community that inspires and empowers them to become their best.”

Expect Camp North End to provide private, semi-private and group training for fitness levels ranging from beginner to professional athlete. Walls and a team of professional instructors will lead classes with options such as yoga, hip-hop cardio and boot camps for starters.

The gym’s open space will allow for flexibility in programming, with on-site shower and restroom facilities as well as office space.

YVY will partner with Mad Miles running club in Charlotte.

Open gym hours and clinical massage as well as bodywork therapy will be available.

Membership and a la carte options will be offered.

Building ownership was represented by Aaron Ligon and Chapman Chastain at Ascent Real Estate Partners in the lease transaction. YVY is currently collaborating with Camp North End tenant Prism Supply Co. on signage for the new space.

Camp North End is a joint venture between Atco Properties & Management and Shorenstein Properties. That project has already redeveloped over 300,000 square feet of former industrial space, with another 1.5 million square feet to go. Phase II of development is underway.
