CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Charlotte business gets a big boost from a major star who’s in town for this weekend's race; Danica Patrick shot a commercial at a new Charlotte fitness club.

This is no ordinary workout.

“Today, what we had is our fighters fitness workout,” said Two Pros Fitness gym co-owner, EZ Smith, IV.

They are pushing, punching, pulling-- pretty much putting it all out there. And so are the guys, two former athletes, running the fitness club.

“It’s extremely difficult; you basically put yourself 100-percent on the line, but in today’s economy, there are no certainties in life,” Smith said.

"Go Daddy", the popular domain registration website, is using their club as a backdrop for a commercial shoot.

And the guest of honor is the face of Go Daddy: Danica Patrick.

The NASCAR driver said, “Obviously they’re both athletes and they both have a similar background to where I come from. I can relate on such a level and see how nice it is to have a company like Go Daddy.

Smith is thrilled at the chance to tell people about his new venture.

“Having her here, seeing what she thought of the workouts, talking about her workouts, and of course the publicity you get as a small business with her being here has been absolutely phenomenal.”

Patrick said, “Go Daddy loves their small businesses, and two pros fitness just launched their website with Go Daddy’s website builder, so we wanted to come here check out what they are doing and show them some love for using us and trying to grow their small business.”

“Having Danica here was amazing. Having the opportunity to have a top tier athlete, you very rarely get to work with someone of her caliber,” Smith said.
