Chiswick Newsletter April 2019

1st April 2019 | Chiswick

Manager’s Welcome

Hard to believe that we are already into the fourth month of the year – however I am sure you are as delighted as I am that spring has finally sprung! As we head in to the holiday season, as usual we will be reducing the class timetable to reflect the drop in attendance during this time. We have included the timetable below, and this of course can be found on our website, and on the app.

We will be operating slightly reduced hours over the holiday, as per below:
Friday 19th – 08:00-20:00
Saturday 20th – 08:00-19:00
Sunday 21st – 08:00-20:00
Monday 22nd – 08:00-20:00

Normal operating hours will resume on Tuesday 23rd. From 8th to 22nd April, swimming lesson times will also be amended – please look out for signage around the club.

We are starting to see many of our members take part in events - half marathons, marathons and triathlons to name a few! If you are doing anything like this, on behalf of all the team here, I would like to wish you the very best of luck with your training, and on the big day! Do let us know how you get on.

As always, if you do have any feedback, or anything to share, please do let us know.

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Easter, and I hope you enjoy the holiday weekend.

All the very best,

Kati Meagher, General Manager & your Roko Chiswick team

Use our Roko App so you can book classes from your phone.
Go into your app store and download Roko health clubs app.
You will need your membership ID number, which you can get from reception to create an account.
You will be able to see all of the week’s classes and book with ease.

Via the app: you can do this from 9pm, 8 days before the class - example: if the class is on a Friday, you can book it from 9pm on the Thursday of the week before. If for any reason members are not able to attend a class, we ask that the booking is cancelled via the app or reception at the soonest possible time. This allows other members to be notified of spaces in the class via email, and on the day of the class allows us time to make every effort to contact members if a space becomes available.

With summer just round the corner it is time to start getting our body beach ready.........
Hair removal is an ongoing problem for many clients.
I have searched high and low for an effective solution to the deal with the issue we all find a tireless chore.
Recently we launched the Elysion Pro - a highly efficient laser hair removal system.
This system unlike traditional lasers can treat ANY hair type and skin colour including blonde hair and dark skin.


Laser works by emitting pulses of laser light. These permanently damage the hair follicle at its root. As a result the effects are long term meaning it’s more convenient and effective. Other methods such as electrolysis can be extremely painful and time consuming.

With the latest technology available at our clinic, treatment is now virtually pain free. We cool the chosen area before, during and after treatment to ensure maximum comfort levels and protection of the skin.

Laser hair removal is now very well established. Many thousands of people have been treated over the last ten years and as long as the treatment is performed correctly by a trained professional and you follow the aftercare advice there should be no side effects at all.

Hairs treated effectively with our laser WILL NOT grow back and results therefore are permanent. However, factors such as hormonal changes or polycystic ovaries can results in new hair growth which may require ongoing additional treatment.

An initial course of 6 treatments is required with up to a 40% reduction after just one session. We can then assess if and how many additional treatments are required. This will vary between individuals and is related to hair thickness, colour, skin type and area treated. Some will require no further treatment others may require ongoing maintenance treatment. The interval between treatments is longer the more treatment you have.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome affects up to 10% of women in the UK. Common symptoms include excessive thick hair growth, especially on the face, neck, back, chest and nipple area. The best and most effective long term treatment is laser hair removal.
A course of 6 -12 treatments is recommended with occasional top ups to maintain the results.
It is also common for PCOS sufferers to be affected by acne. Our clinic provides ground breaking treatments to also target this problem

All Roko members can book a consultation and will receive preferential rates.
