About us

Located in a modern, sun-drenched loft space on the border of Midtown East and the Upper East Side, Apex Human Performance is a private, members-only health club designed for high performers in business, sports, and the arts.

Members enjoy access to concierge care and an allied team of caring health, nutrition, and fitness professionals -- on-site, off-site, and virtually, anywhere in the world.

Our Story

For nearly fifteen years, and over several iterations, former Today Show correspondent, Inc. 5000 winner, and internationally-recognized healthy living authority, Jeff Halevy, shaped Apex Human Performance into a sought-out resource for health testing, personal training, physical therapy, and nutrition by a Who’s Who list spanning multiple industries and professions, including Hugh Jackman, Frank McCourt, Milos Raonic, Joseph Edelman, John Oliver, John Legere, Ben Foster, Michael Sheen, and Ryan Seacrest, among many notable others. 

In an industry plagued by low standards, Jeff’s vision was always to create a healthy living sanctuary with highly qualified professionals and concierge care for others, who just like him, have limited time and full plates -- and want the peace of mind that comes with knowing they are working with “the best.”

Jeff created a full time, in-house, integrated team of verifiable health and fitness experts, who all possess a minimum of a Master’s Degree in their health-related area of expertise, if not a doctorate and clinical licensure -- operating with an “unfair advantage” to make the most of members’ time and investments: science.

Our concierge team ensures that members experience magic at every turn, from priority access to elite physicians and medical practices in New York City and beyond; to procuring seamless healthy lifestyle resources for travel worldwide; and even to designing our members’ home gyms and fitness centers.
