At Rochester Fitness Martial Arts, a team of fitness instructors and martial artists help their students build strength and self-defense skills with a range of all-ages classes. Kickboxing, tai chi, and kung fu comprise their traditional martial-arts offerings, whereas various self-defense classes—such as the bully-proof or adult self-defense workshops—teach real-life applications for defensive techniques.
No two workouts are ever the same at Iron Core CrossFit, by design. The trainers' functional-movement-oriented workouts change every day, and can be scaled by intensity and weight to match any exerciser's particular skills and fitness level which means that all fitness levels are welcome. The fitness facility also offers boot-camp programs that closely resemble CrossFit classes; the key difference between the two being a lack of weightlifting, which can, at times, act as a restraint for some participants.
Professional artist Vanessa Sheldon doesn't limit her creativity to the studio. During her two-hour Paint Class Wine Glass art parties, she invites aspiring painters to unlock their inner Monets at bars, restaurants, and event spaces across the city. Once they're set up with their provided materials, attendees learn to masterfully create portraits that can later be used to decorate homes, businesses, or public transportation platforms. Classes also fuel creativity with food and drink, whether it's a glass of BYOB wine or a cocktail purchased from an onsite bartender. Shelton oversees each party, guiding artists with advice gained through years of canvas time.
