The Palestra and Gymnasium The Gymnasium was a Greek practice that evolved over time into the colonnaded buildings housing an area for exercise and also a place for socializing. The building is in the form of a peristyle (a courtyard with a covered walkway around it). Palestra also refers to a place for training or exercise but is used mostly in conjunction with wrestling. The Romans incorporated these into bath complexes, though they also existed separately.
