Multi-Functional Fitness Amenity Design - The Villages at Westford


The Villages at Westford, a new multi-family housing complex in Apex, NC, aimed to create a fitness center for their new property that offered a large amount of options available to residents without overcrowding the space. They wanted to ensure that the fitness amenity was safe, accessible, and spacious, while also offering a wide variety of cardio, strength, and functional fitness.

While designing the facility, Teresa Boland, ASF Territory Sales Manager, worked in collaboration with project managers to adjust the layout to suit their needs while walking through the facility. “Figuring out a convenient and safe layout was integral to our decision-making, so Teresa having the knowledge and skillfulness to work through CAD layouts live while we walked through a rough-framed construction site was invaluable,” noted Eric Rifkin, project manager.


The 1,676 square foot facility features nine cardio stations, including Precor treadmills, ellipticals, and recumbent bikes with 10” touchscreen networked consoles; Assault Fitness AirRunner; and Concept II rowers. An adjoining a studio room has Escape Fitness functional accessories, two battle rope stations, Wellbeats self-guided on-demand fitness classes, and Spinner® Ride™ indoor spinning bikes. The strength area includes six InFlight dual-motion strength stations, a free weight training area, and a Precor Discovery Series half rack.

“We are extremely pleased with the way our fitness center was planned and functions at Westford.  Having worked previously with Advantage & Teresa was a major factor, as any tweaks we collectively felt were necessary or were apparent from resident feedback on our previous project were well-integrated in an already successful format.  Teresa and the Advantage staff have always been easy to work with, show up when they say they will, and complete the work in a timely manner without interrupting other development and construction activities.”
