Dispersed throughout a class studio and a spacious workout floor, World Gym Rochester's trainers usher guests of all ages and abilities toward physical health.

As the trainers emphasize realism during their personal sessions and group workouts, they eschew the gimmicks of pocket treadmill salesmen for a focus on achievable results.
Guests can cycle beneath the lightning bolt decor of the spin zone, watch television as they jog in the cardio area, or heft weights aboard strength machines on the fitness floor.
