Abaco Announces Partnership with Vince McConnell to Design Gym

Abaco is pleased to announce a partnership with Vince McConnell of McConnell Athletics in Fairhope, Alabama to design a fully functional and fully stocked gym that will accommodate everyone from the professional athlete to the beginner level resident.

“The gym at Abaco will be overlooking the Gulf, so it will be awesome,” McConnell said. “I am excited to have the opportunity to design a gym that will be functional and user-friendly for all fitness levels as well as have a beautiful beach feel and an unbeatable view.”

McConnell said he plans to stock all of the equipment needed for a full body workout from the standard cardio machines – ellipticals and treadmills – to weight stacks, multi-functional trainers, resistance bands and workout balls.

“If you are a seasoned athlete, you will have all of the state-of-the-art equipment you need to conduct your self-guided workout,” he said. “But if you are new to working out or need some guidance, we will provide user-friendly software or workout sheets that will guide you in a workout specific to your fitness level and goals.”

McConnell added that it is important to him that the gym is welcoming and warm.

“I want to design into the luxury feel that Abaco is bringing to Gulf Shores so that it is an inviting space while ensuring that functionality is the focus.” he said. “It’s going to be a great project.”

McConnell has been an athletic performance coach since 1983 and is a sports and fitness writer.  He owns McConnell Athletics in Fairhope, Alabama.

“We are excited to have Vince on board with Abaco,” DRG Development Partner David Head said. “He has decades of experience in the fitness industry and understands the quality and atmosphere we are bringing to Abaco.  We are really looking forward to working with him.”
