A hybrid between the medical and fitness industry. Find out more 


Located just across from Central Park, LA PALESTRA is an ideal staging ground for runners of all levels, and running is a natural fit for many of our fitness programs. Our members frequently train for races of various lengths, from 5Ks to marathons, and our marathon programs-New York and Rome-are among our most popular annual events. These dedicated running programs include technique lessons (taught using the Pose Method, a running style that prevents injury), strength training, and group training runs with other members. Over 16 years of training members for the New York Marathon, we have achieved a 100% completion rate.
