Women Who Win “Anneclaire Nelson”

In honor of her new studio launch March 18th, we met up with Anneclaire Nelson, the visionary behind ACE - a revolutionary fitness haven, and our next female feature for our “Women Who Win” series. We aim to share inspiring stories of women pursuing their dreams, and that is exactly what Anneclaire is doing in the fitness industry here in Charleston, SC. 

Whether you've been with her since the beginning, taking one of her classes at a pop up on Sullivans Island, or you’re new to the Anneclaire experience,  the tribe of women she has assembled is fiercely loyal to her passion to dance, sweat, and sculpt.

“My journey to Charleston has been a long and winding one! Of course, COVID changed things for everyone. For me, I moved from NYC to Miami and started training clients there. At the same time, I was dealing with a transformative loss. My brother, David, passed away from cancer right around that time, so I was grieving and looking at the world through new eyes.

Moving through that process led me to feel that Charleston could be the place for me. The city was always special to my family, and especially to my brother. When a long-term client called and said she moved to Charleston and wanted to open a studio, it felt like the stars were aligning. The idea had been percolating for a while but that was my “ah ha” moment. I felt like I was being moved in this direction and I just decided to go for it. “

Anneclaire embodies the words used to describe ACE: Sexy, Youthful, Strong, Courageous, Joyful. Join us in celebrating Anneclaire's remarkable journey and the launch of ACE located in downtown Charleston at 695 Meeting Street. 

Together, let's champion her vision, resilience, and unwavering determination to inspire others to reach new heights. #WomenWhoWin #ACEExperience
