6th September 2016 | Chiswick
For many, September marks a welcome back to the club following the summer break. It’s a great time to reinvigorate your work-out and reset goals as we fight to find a rhythm to life with the kids all back at school! For me it’s now been 3 months at Roko and there remains much to do. As we work behind the scenes you will see improvements across the café, gym and changing rooms.
Liz talks below about some of the highlights this month with National Fitness Day, Jump Fit and the timetable launch; there is plenty to get stuck into! Plus read on for details of our EXCLUSIVE ROKO MEMBER COMPETITION to win a free hands-on velodrome cycling experience with Dani King - Olympic, European and three-time World Champion.
With great offers in the Spa there is plenty of time to indulge and unwind too. Just pop to reception to book your next treat
We welcome all feedback, please do take the time to stop and chat in the club if there is anything that you would like to discuss and I look forward to seeing you in the club in the coming weeks
National Fitness Day on the 7th of September is the biggest and most visible annual celebration of physical activity.
To help celebrate it, we are having a club open day all day where everybody is invited to get active for the day.

Improve the Appearance of Sun Damage with Post-Summer Peels
Despite the efforts of even diligent sunscreen-wearers, environmental assaults and UV radiation can cause the complexion to become visibly dry and uneven. Post-summer peels not only help repair this damage, but they also prevent accumulated damage.
Chemical peels are designed to literally peel away the top layers of the epidermis by expediting the exfoliation process. Post-summer peels are an excellent way to maintain the quality of a patient’s skin, as they exfoliate texture irregularities, reduce unwanted pigmentation and sunspots, evacuate clogged pores, and strip the skin of excess oil production.
Bellezza Clinic offers highly effective peels with various degrees of penetration that are well tolerated on most skin types. A salicylic and lactic acid-based peel is a favourite among our patients, as it addresses mild to moderate imperfections found in hyper-pigmentation and melasma, and delivers beautiful results. A light exfoliation with our peels may occur over a two- to five-day period, leaving the skin immediately soft and vibrant; tissue response and aesthetic outcome may be further improved with a series of peels.
Book now your Chemical peel and you will receive a 20% discount on the listed price list.
