Fitness Team One.  It appears to be a DVD fitness program using a Star Trek theme.  These opening credits were released April, 2013.
In response to an e-mail query, I received the following discussion on July 11 2014:
From: James Hay To: Me
Jul 11 [2014] at 1:56 PM Greetings:

Thank You for the interest in our program. We are currently working on a new website (our current space offers to us a way to share some of the highlights of the project with our focus group). We are very proud to offer great training opportunities to all of our recruits- All of Our Fitness Instructors all have at least a 4 year college degree (in a medical field), and are ACSM certified (American College of Sports Medicine).

Our launch date is September 6, 2014 and our Fitness Cruise Website will follow after that (as soon as all of the Celebrity contracts are signed) - the first cruise launches in late 2015.

We are not part of the USS Farragut team, but we do know of them and will be in contact with them in order to share our long planned success. Our goal as life long fans of science & science fiction is to respect the fans and the studios: Our Fitness Programs are based in the current disciplines for Physical Fitness- The fans deserve nothing less. While we instruct our clients using backgrounds set in the future- we are aware that civilian space travel is at hand, and working in space within reach! The population needs to be physically fit to go!!! And, it should be the science fiction fans that are first in line!!!

Federation Fitness has recruited the best trainers; former NASA program designers and a team of fitness instructors dedicated to producing an authentic Star-fleet Command Boot Camp Experience. Combine with 21st century Sports Medicine & Physical Fitness Training- we believe that our Physically Fit and Disciplined Recruits will surely qualify for the "first in line" initiatives! Until the space-fleet is ready to fly, there will be the Federation Fitness Ocean Cruise experience!

Health and Happiness,

PS My apologies for the delayed response- Beyond busy, BUT staying in contact is VITAL to me. Mornings/M-Sat my team & I volunteer at the wounded Veteran facilities, but if you wish to call us: (630)-689-3887 after 2 PM CST (up to 9PM CST) we could talk- or our lead trainer's email ( Again, Thank You
I have no explanation of why the sender's name is different than the signers name.
