Halevy Life Health Club

The only gym in NYC with an integrated approach to health and a money-back guarantee.

Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. -John W. Gardner

Why have stars of business, sports, and the arts like Hugh Jackman, Frank McCourt, Milos Raonic, Joe Edelman, John Legere, and Ryan Seacrest sought us out?

We use our 7,000 square foot health & fitness club, located on the border of the Upper East Side and Midtown East in Manhattan at 212 E 57th St., to get the world's high performers -- from business to athletics to the arts -- into the best shape they've ever been in, inside and out.

How?

Well, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all solution for optimal health and fitness, for starters. While the science doesn't change from client to client, we fiercely believe the approach does, which is why we assess each client thoroughly first, then create a customized plan, execute the plan...and then start the process all over again.

We have an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach, fusing Orthopedic and Sports Medicine, with Physical Therapy, and Personal Training.

We are like McKinsey for your body.

Additionally, our personal trainers are more qualified than 99% of the personal trainers in New York City. How do we know? Look at the personal trainer positions listed with other area gyms. They simply require a GED and a personal training certificate.

But being certified does not make a personal trainer qualified.

So what's our difference?

All of our personal trainers have a minimum of a Master's Degree in Exercise Science. Rather than spending six hours, six days or six months to just get a certification, they have all spent six years earning their Masters Degrees in Exercise Science.

Why is this important to us? It's in our DNA as much as it is in our members' to be the best at what we do.

Our mission statement is "Raise the Bar," and as cheeky as it might be because of our industry, setting a higher standard is at the core of who we are.
