Anytime Fitness is now OPEN in downtown Rochester!
In what was occupied by the former Downtown Fitness Center, Anytime Fitness provides access to those of us who wish to make our own workout times when we want - not based on anyone else's schedule. That's right, Anytime Fitness is just like it states, it's open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year - making it truly possible for you to get a good workout ANYTIME!
You may remember the former space in the Columbus Building at 50 Chestnut Street (owned by DHD Ventures, same building as The Residences at the Columbus Building), but rest assured that it has been transformed into a totally different space - providing an open floor concept, soaked in natural light from those big, beautiful windows, meshed together with all brand-new equipment.

To give you an idea of just how great this new space is, here's our Top 8 Reasons to Love Anytime Fitness in Downtown.
1. Key Fob Access
One swipe with your new keyfob and you're in. No need for attendants to swipe your badge, card, or picture id. The doors to the building are secured at all times, there are 24/7 security cameras, and the only people you'll see in the space are trainers and members.
2. Brand New Equipment
Think you'll be working out on some beat-up equipment that has been in use for 20 years? Not here. All brand-new machines, weights, and accessories will provide you with a solid workout experience.
BONUS: The brand new cardio equipment offers the tech-saavy member the ability to watch Netflix, Hulu, LiveTV, browse the Internet, and even connect your Bluetooth headphones.
3. Brightly Colored and Open
Bad lighting and bland colors? Nope, again, not here. In fact, for those of you who remember the drabby DFC space will be surprised with an open-floor concept that includes plenty of natural light from the outside, bright colors to influence your workout, and an openness that keeps us from feeling claustrophobic.
4. The Flow...
And while we're on the subject of space, the workout center is situated all on one floor so that you can get all of your cardio, weight training, and stretching done without having to go very far or even between floors.
This makes it a lot easier for those of us to execute a great circuit training program, having the ability to switch up exercises without much rest in between.
5. The Studio
The Studio is a space for group classes (body sculpt, yoga, zumba, etc)...
...but it can also be utilized by anyone when there are no classes in session (exercise balls, light weights, stretching, jump roping, etc.).
6. The Beliefs are Front and Center
Because working together on your personal health is what it's all about...
7. ...and Inspirational
...and there's also a place for YOU to jot down your ideas, thoughts, little victories - and to stay current for news and other information.
8. All the Extras
In addition to the gym, be on the lookout for all the extras, including:
Private showers and bathrooms - to freshen up, with dignity, after a good workout
Personal cubbies - no need to bring your own lock
FREE Wifi - of course!
Rockbot - download the app to play your own selection of workout music
