We pride ourselves on our long standing delivery of premium health and fitness in West Bridgford over the last 14 years and we’re delighted to be able to let you know that we have just completed a full refurbishment of our fitness arena and brought some stylish new furniture to the Club Lounge, taking your club experience to a new high.
This follows on from the investments we have already made this year to the outdoor pool with stylish new loungers, relaying and refurbishing the patio and pool and, as boring as it is, installing a new pool boiler to ensure the water stays at the right temperature for you.
In this phase of our investment programme we have created new specialised fitness zones, including Performance, Synergy and Combat, enabling you to get more variety and results from your workouts. We have also reshaped and enhanced other areas with new equipment within Functional Training, Free Weights and Hammer Strength and Cardio.

Combine this with the fully adjustable Wattbike set-up for the smoothest, most comfortable ride of any indoor bike.
Row GX Trainer
The ultimate cross-trainer - rowing has been long renowned as the perfect aerobic exercise. The Row GX Trainer enables high calorie burn within a low-impact, total body workout. Its "Fluid Resistance" technology delivers a smooth and natural feel, and it allows for easy resistance adjustments to accommodate a wide range of users.
Octane Lateral X
Combining elliptical and lateral movement, the LateralX utilizes varying plans of motion to create muscle confusion for functional exercise that can build stamina, muscular endurance and coordination.
Research shows a 27% increase in caloric expenditure going from lateral width 1 to lateral width 10, and the LateralX motion represents a 30% increase in hip abduction, adduction and knee extension over traditional ellipticals.
The Zero Runner
The treadmill reinvented - walk or run safely and comfortably, without impact. This state-of-the-art design replicates an exerciser’s natural form but eliminates the stressful impact.
Built with cutting-edge innovation, and without a belt, deck or cord, the Zero Runner revolutionizes the gym floor and enables exercisers to maximize workout effectiveness while minimizing discomfort.
Strength Power Accelerated Resistance Cardio
Lose fat. Build muscle. Gain strength. Increase metabolism. Improve power. SPARC does it all, more safely, because it’s biomechanically refined – providing exceptional results with low impact. SPARC’s intuitive “get on and go” design invites all users to simply choose incline and intensity levels, then reach their fitness goals in record time.
Thanks to its exclusive PowerStroke technology, university studies show that xRide users demonstrate 343% more activity in their glutes, produce 22% more mechanical power and burn 23% more calories than when using a recumbent bike at the same exertion level. That means better results for you.
Plus, the upper body is challenged by the patented MultiGrip handlebars which means you have the ability to incorporate upper and lower-body strength training.
The Synergy XL Mix Rig creates transformational and inspiring functional fitness experiences for dynamic small group training, which will feature on our new group class programme. It will also allow almost limitless functional training options for your own workouts so you really can spice up your routines.
The Combat Zone
The Combat Zone is dedicated to and equipped for combat and boxing workouts. As well as burning away your stress, you can maximise cardio benefits and build strength through new boxing based techniques.
Enhancements to our other areas include:
A greatly expanded Functional Training Area with new flooring, a Speed Track, TIYR, Plyosoft Boxes and lots of other new ‘state-of-the-art’ functional training equipment and an HD Elite Power Rack and Lifting Platform in the Free Weights Area with new weights.
Group Fitness also benefitted from new equipment including all new BodyPump rep sets.
We do have other investments planned for 2017 but we’ll save those for another day. Rest assured we intend to continue to improve your club to bring you the best value premium fitness experience in Nottingham.
Yours in health and fitness
Julie Bowley and your Roko Nottingham Team
