Personal Training


January! The start of resolutions. The holidays are over, and the guilt starts.  You come to the RAC and are ready to get fit and start losing some pounds.  Nervously, you climb aboard your favorite cardio machine (most likely a treadmill or an elliptical).  You have achieved what many others have not:  You are off the couch and moving.  Great start!  But then you slowly lose motivation, and the commitment starts to wane.  


The key to the first few months of starting an exercise program is consistency.  One way to be consistent is to be held accountable; this is where we can help.  If you are starting and have not met with one of our Personal Trainers, I highly recommend you do so. 


New members receive two complimentary sessions with a Personal Trainer.  These sessions will not only introduce you to EGYM, but also help you understand the best ways to exercise to meet your specific health and wellness goals.  If you are a current member but need help or encouragement, we are here for you.  Trainers will get you started the right way.  We have single Personal Training sessions as well as reduces price package options.  Besides helping with programming your exercise routines, the accountability provided is often the difference between success and failure.  RAC Personal Trainers are passionate and knowledgeable, and they love to help people!  They may be the difference between success and failure.  


If you are interested in connecting with a Personal Trainer, you have some options.  First, we have a list of all their Bios on our website.  We have their photos on the wall by the water fountain on the fitness floor with all their business cards.  You can reach out to them this way or contact Steve Boring (RAC Fitness Director).  Steve can recommend the right person for you with a few simple questions.  


All of us at the Rochester Athletic Club wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Inclement Weather

With the arrival of the winter season there also comes the possibility of inclement weather. For the safety of our members and staff we at times may need to adjust club hours or programming. The following reminders are a good resource in these poor weather situations.


Club closing or reduced open hours are first communicated through Facebook and in a special orange banner that will appear at the top of every page on the website. If you have the RAC app, you will also receive a notification if you allow notifications on your device.

For all other information, visit our inclement weather page on our website.
