Are you trying to stay fit and active in Rochester, NY? There are plenty of ways to workout several times a week, without spending day after day doing the same old routine at the gym. Rochester locals can exercise regularly — in all kinds of weather — and keep it interesting. Here are some less conventional ways to work up a sweat in Rochester, NY:

Lace Up Some Skates

Ice skating can double as a fun and exciting workout. Rochester’s Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park Ice Rink hosts open skating Monday through Friday. (The season began on November 24, 2013 and will continue until March 15.) “The renovated ice skating rink boasts a kidney-shaped surface that is 30 percent larger than the original rink. Patrons can enjoy an expanded warming shelter that features a heated floor and fireplace, new rental skates and a new sound and lighting system,” The City of Rochester’s official webpage states. The rink will be holding a St. Patrick’s day celebration on March 15. Patrons can skate for free if they wear green.

Work Off Extra Pounds in an Indoor Trampoline Park

“Imagine a seemingly endless sea of trampolines, all connected to form one massive trampoline surface. Now, imagine that surface enclosed with angled trampolines that allow you to literally bounce off the walls! These patented, all-trampoline, walled playing courts are the foundation of Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park since we opened our first location in 2004. It’s a playing court so original and unique, it was awarded a United States patent,” the official site says of Rochester’s relatively new Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park. Patrons can participate in intense fitness classes, 3-D Dodgeball, or free jump. Sky Zone has been featured in Rochester newspapers The Democrat and Chronicle and the Rochester Business Journal.

Don’t let boredom ruin your resolve to stay in shape. Mix things up by ice skating at the newly renovated rink, or joining Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park’s unique fitness classes. For more ideas or Rochester information, visit the City of Rochester’s official webpage. See more:
