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. Their certifications—granted from organizations such as NFPT, CrossFit, and Moms in Motion—bespeak experience in several fitness fields, just as the gym's class curriculum covers exercise styles from Zumba dances to martial arts. 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. Tanning and chiropractic amenities can also tend to physiques that aren't working through reps or posing as life-size Operation game boards in the childcare room.

Classes impart students with surefooted spirit and fundamental climbing skills such as anchoring the rope for comrades. In addition to individual challenges, the center hosts several group events, ranging from team-building weekends to kids' birthday parties and summer camps. Rock Ventures grants discounted admission to veterans and their families with advance reservation on Saturday mornings, and helps disabled climbers conquer the rocks by using block-and-tackle systems to hoist themselves up.

Owner Kent Winchester informs his work at RockVentures with a multifaceted history of leadership and team-building experience, including a stint in the Peace Corps.

"The Tub," as Bathtub Billy's Restaurant and Sports Bar is fondly referred to by its regulars, is part sports bar and part family restaurant. For more than 20 years, locals have made this neighborhood staple their go-to spot for food, drinks, and, above all, sports. Televisions tuned into the game can be found everywhere here, from the big screens above the bar to the smaller TVs tucked into each booth. Outside, Bathtub Billy's features a giant two-level deck that overlooks a popular outdoor volleyball court; inside, kids and adults alike can play arcade games, pool, and darts. The menu is what you'd expect from a proper sports bar, with hearty pub burgers, flatbread pizzas, supreme nachos, and deep-fried footballs.
