We go beyond the typical NYC studio.

At NYPT, we believe health is a full circle: it takes improving all aspects of your well-being to get you in the best shape of your life. Drawing from our personal experiences, we decided to create an environment in the heart of NYC where you have a health and wellness team centered around your fitness training to address all of your needs and help you become the athlete you were always meant to be. We empower you with education and support you with a community.

We Train With Heart.


New York Personal Training was founded in 2003 and has been serving the heart of Flatiron ever since.

Under new ownership in 2017, the company has become more than just a personal training studio in NYC. It is now a fully integrated health and wellness community, complete with experts from all different fields to offer clients the most complete 360° experience possible. We truly believe in our mission to go beyond the gym floor and empower our staff to exceed client expectations. For us, training with heart is not just exercising intensely–it’s about knowing that you have an entire community ready to assist in your health journey. Nobody can do it alone, and we couldn’t be happier to help.

Rui is an NYC personal trainer and the new owner of New York Personal Training, a boutique 360° health and fitness studio in the heart of Flatiron, NYC. She has written and consulted for a variety of publications, including Men’s FitnessVerily, and Refinery29. Specializing in injury prevention and gait analysis, Rui has made it her mission to help people get out of pain and stiffness and unlock their inner athlete. Her experiences in the U.S. Army showed her that a well-functioning body can overcome just about any obstacle. Rui takes a holistic approach when assisting others in weight loss and overall health goals by working closely with other professionals on her team and within her network. She is especially interested in empowering women to be fearless and independent on the gym floor.  In her spare time, Rui enjoys finding challenging hiking trails where she can stimulate her mind and train her body. She loves scrambling up rocks and squeezing between boulders with her canine sidekick, Desmond.
