I live in Rochester, but I haven’t been to any hardcore gyms. Not sure what you’re looking for but I’ve heard this place http://www.star-physicaltherapy.com/ in Fairport has Bumper plates and platforms for the Olympic Lifts.
I lift for olympic lifting at Star PT in Fairport. I don’t know any place in the Rochester area besides this one that allows bars to be dropped. But if you are looking for more of a powerlifting spot, and/or want heavy dumbbells, you may have to look elsewhere.
I have to agree that the RIT gym is pretty good, however, they did not allow me to perform Olympic lifts if I was not in the enclosed power rack (What???), even though I was using the bumper plates.
The East ave World’s was pretty good…they have multiple squat racks, room for deads, etc.
