A Wellness Retreat

Some families gather around the kitchen table, others the pool. But this Milton family’s go-to spot is the gym. Working together to stay healthy has always been a staple for the four of them. After spending many tiresome hours commuting to the neighborhood gym, the homeowners decided to transform part of their unfinished basement into a health resort just seconds away.

Cory Regan, owner of Trademark Building Company consulted the fitness enthusiasts to design the workout room of their dreams. To start, several windows and exterior doors were added to bring in ample daylight in what was previously a dimly lit basement. And, a wall was removed to add square footage. This gave everyone enough space to not only stretch but also provided an open area to push each other to personal bests.

The 610-square-foot health haven with 12-foot ceilings accommodates several pieces of exercise equipment including a treadmill, weight bench, trampoline and more. The shock-absorbing mats and laminate hardwood flooring were put in place specifically to handle heavy-hitting workouts.

Basement remodeled into a workout space with a massage room

A favorite feature? The adjoining massage room. With weekly visits from a personal masseuse, this zen space is the perfect post-workout wind down. The spa room and the gym are both decorated with the same features seen throughout the rest of the home. Cory explains, “All involved felt the need to create a space that had finishes to complement the main living space. Tall ceilings, large moldings and a traditional style complete the look and maintain a cohesive space.”
