4th LA Health opens on Staten Island


STATEN ISLAND, NY – The fourth Staten Island-based LA Fitness opened on Friday at The Boulevard, a new $ 180 million mall anchored by ShopRite in New Dorp, according to a company spokesperson.

The new 38,000 square foot gym is located on the second floor of 2656 Hylan Blvd. and features a 25-yard two-lane lap pool, hot tub, functional training area, separate room for group training, dedicated group exercise area, and locker rooms with showers, saunas, and steam rooms, LA Fitness said in a statement to Advance / SILive.com.

Amenities compliment a range of equipment, including more than 100 cardio machines with custom screens, selective circuit training, and free weight areas.

“We offer members a variety of group fitness classes seven days a week, including aqua, indoor cycling, dance classes and yoga. Personal training is also available for a separate fee, ”the company said in its statement.

The new gym connects the LA Fitness Studios in Greenridge, Port Richmond and Travis.


After ShopRite launched on the Boulevard in October, PetSmart and Marshalls opened at the new mall last month.

As part of the completion of the 356,000-square-foot, multi-storey shopping center, an abstract sculpture by artist David Boyajian was installed on site last month, depicting dancing seedlings sprouting from the earth. Kimco Realty, the Long Island-based developer of the new mall, named the sculpture “Renaissance” to mark the “rebirth” of the mall formerly known as Hylan Plaza.
