Located at 400 East 67th Street, The Laurel's state-of-the-art Triathlon Training Center is available exclusively for residents at the luxury condominium building interested in challenging themselves on an uninterrupted running, swimming and biking circuit. In addition to a custom designed resistance pool with adjustable current levels, the center offers the most up-to-date equipment including Woodway "The Force" treadmills, which have a magnetic brake that provides resistance; CycleOps pro indoor cycles that reproduce the fit of a road bike; and SCIFIT ergo-meters designed for ultimate cardio and strength training.

Professional trainer Anthony Bagnetto of Iowa Sports Management is one of two skilled trainers on staff available to work privately with residents at The Laurel. Bagnetto, a triathlete since 2006 who will compete in the New York City Triathlon in July 2010, said triathletes couldn't find a better place in New York City to call home.

"There is a strong triathlete population here in New York City, so it's fantastic that there is a residential building available that caters to their sport," Bagnetto said. "I first heard about The Laurel and its Triathlon Training Center long before it opened. As a triathlete, I was so impressed with the concept. Everything in it is all top of the line."

The Triathlon Training Center is part of the Laurel's Trophy Club, an 8,000 square feet bi-level fitness and spa-like facility. Other offerings at the private amenity space on the Upper East Side of Manhattan include a 50-foot infinity edge lap pool with a glass mosaic tile interior and a botticino marble deck; a fitness center with state-of-the-art apparatus including Life Fitness cardiovascular training equipment, free-weights; custom-designed Atlantis strength equipment; a steam room; and a sauna.

The Trophy Club was designed by prominent New York fitness specialist John Sitaras and is run by Iowa Sports Management. The space elegantly combines beauty and function, outfitted with marble, limestone and frosted glass walls and custom designed poolside cabanas with Wenge wood paneling and upholstered seating.

"The Trophy Club is the most cutting-edge fitness center available today and only The Laurel can offer it exclusively to our residents," said Joanie Schumacher, Director of Sales for The Laurel.  

The Laurel's foundation is built upon environmentally conscious principles from the construction, energy efficiency, building materials, and indoor air quality, to the active and healthy lifestyle it provides to its residents. There are 129 condominium residences in The Laurel, designed by award-winning architects Costas Kondylis and Brian Callahan, which range in size from studios to four bedrooms.
