It seems crazy that 2017 is coming to an end, the year has certainly flown by at the Club. We are delighted with your feedback on the work that we have done on the Gym floor and are really excited at the plans for the second phase that are just being finalised.

I will be offering the usual Meet The Manager session on Thursday 9th November @ 6pm and Friday 17th at 9.30am.

Please also see below for an announcement on The Spa here at the club.

Since starting the rok-x classes on the gym floor in October (core-x and body-x)  we will be adding 5 more to the timetable. Do come and join other members and our fitness coaches for an alternative 30minute workout. To re-cap:

Core-x : Body weight and weighted exercises are included to work the all-important core and to strengthen stabilizing muscle groups

Body-x : Weight bearing circuits. This class is designed to push you to your cardiovascular and muscular endurance limit using mainly bodyweight.

Like you I’m sure, I can’t believe its November already! We are coming to the end of the year which means Phase 2 of our gym refurb  - exciting plans will be revealed as we have details and dates for you.

If you haven’t seen the posters we have started ‘gym floor challenges’. This month’s challenge is the ‘Step Challenge’. Each participant will receive a complementary PT session and a guest pass. The person to get the fastest time for the highest distance will WIN a pair of boxing gloves! Go for it!

Personal Training
it’s time to get personal

Personal training means something different to everyone. Whether you are training for a particular event, have weight loss goals, fitness aims, or health and lifestyle ambitions, personal training can help you to:
* Achieve more with your health and fitness
* Lose weight faster
* Stay motivated to come to the club more regularly
* Boost yourself out of a fitness plateau
* Add variety to avoid workout boredom
* Prepare for an upcoming event.

Personal training is great value and is within reach of everyone. Providing motivation, inspiration, support and guidance, personal training will give you the boost you need to move on with your health and fitness and achieve your goals more quickly than you thought possible. Roko personal trainers are friendly and approachable but the most important decision is choosing the best one for you. Our elite personal trainers have specific areas of expertise, additional training and qualifications and will suit those who have specialist requirements.

For a FREE CONSULTATION or to book a personal training session please see reception or any member of the fitness team or click here to enquire on-line.

The Spa Announcement

Dear Members,

Following a strategic review of our club services, we have decided to change the way we operate our Spa at Roko Chiswick. Through 2017 we have experienced record membership growth and believe that this service repositioning will allow us to focus more on our health and fitness solutions to further improve your club in 2018 and beyond.

Please be aware that we will be moving from an in-house Elemis Spa offering to a third party Wellness solution from November 20th 2017.  This change is intended to provide members with more Wellness treatment choice than currently offered and we view this as an exciting addition to Roko Chiswick.

Over the coming months we will be launching and developing the Wellness Hub where specially selected third party providers should then offer a wider range of beauty and holistic treatments that will complement your membership here at Roko.

If you have favourite Wellness providers in the local area these could now be based at Roko Chiswick within the Wellness Hub, so please do pass on my details and we can then grow the offering provided to you here at Roko Chiswick.

If you do have any questions, please feel free to contact me in the club but do have a look through the attached FAQ’s as they may well provide the answer to your query.

Yours sincerely,

Ben Holden, General Manager
