Multi-Functional Fitness Amenity Design - The Villages at Westford

Westford-6.jpg

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.”

Kutztown University Gives their students a beautiful recreation center upgrade

Kutztown University in Pennsylvania recently unveiled their beautifully expansive and updated recreation center. The goal of the project was to refresh the rec center's equipment while also serving the changing needs of their student population. Working closely with Kutztown Campus Recreation, ASF reimagined the space to make it more inviting near the entrance, while keeping most of the same capabilities the outgoing equipment had. These changes were made in coordination with a flooring upgrade to make the most efficient use of the same square footage possible.

“Working with Amy and Kutztown Recreation is always a pleasure, and whenever our clients offer a clear vision with an open mind we always seem to come up with a solution that solves the points of concern for their demographic,” said Josh Arnone, ASF Territory Sales Manager, about the project.

The space features Precor 800 Line ellipticals, treadmills, and AMTs with 10.1” touchscreen networked consoles. The facility also includes a variety of Precor Discovery selectorized and plate-loaded strength equipment with custom shrouds, and Power Lift racks to round out the strength training selection.

Horace Mann School Upgrades Their Student Fitness Center

Horace Mann School aimed to give their students a state-of-the-art fitness facility when they began a large renovation project and addition to their Bronx, NY, campus. In a campaign to respond to their ongoing needs, they re-envisioned facilities to support science, student life, athletics, physical education, and health and wellness. The removal of the old swimming pool created space for the Simon Family Fitness Center, open throughout the school day to allow students to practice self-care when it is most convenient for them.

The 2,450 square foot fitness center features top-of-the-line Precor treadmills, ellipticals, and AMTs; Expresso GO bikes, along with Precor Discovery Line selectorized strength machines with Mahogany upholstery. Networked touchscreen consoles engage students on all the cardio equipment. In the center of the facility, a Queenax unit is equipped with Escape Fitness accessories for functional training and group classes, and Rack5 storage units line the stairs. A separate aerobics studio features 21 Spinner® Chrono™ Power bikes.

“Our main goal when designing the fitness center was to create a space in which we could accommodate our PE classes in addition to creating an atmosphere in which our student athletes could come to and get a great workout for their sport/needs,” Kevin Valluzzi, Fitness Center Director at Horace Mann School explained. ”We also wanted to allow for some free space in order to be able to do plyometrics, mobility work, etc. We were able to accomplish all of this with help from Advantage Sport & Fitness.”
