Manager’s Message

January has gone by very quickly and I hope your News Year’s resolutions are in full flow.

We have new classes added onto our class timetable, rok-x, so come and give them a go. Also keep a look out for our new Personal Training profile board and taster days.

We will be introducing ‘Meet the Managers’ sessions which is an informal chat to share your thoughts and comments about the club.  This will be advertised in the club and on Facebook soon.

Personal Trainer Focus – Tony Ilett

I think it is about time to introduce myself as I am one of the new Personal Trainers at Roko.  My name is Tony Ilett and I run the circuit classes at the following times:

Tuesday evening 6pm – 7pm, Thursday morning 6:30-7:30 am, and Saturday mornings 10:30-11:30 am,

The group I have are really friendly, so come on down and give it a try, everyone is welcome regardless of your starting point or level of ability, all I ask is that you try your best!

My background in exercise and fitness is briefly as follows; I studied Human Sciences for 5 years at University, learning gross/clinical anatomy, exercise physiology, nutrition, neurology, biomechanics, exercise rehabilitation etc.  I also travelled to India to study various massage modalities.  I researched online for the best place to do Personal Training qualifications in the UK and the general consensus was the YMCA in Tottenham Court Road, so that was my next destination.  In between doing all this study I ran a successful Integrated Massage Therapy business in Essex and studied for approximately 25 years doing various forms of Martial Arts and circuits, and ran a couple of Martial Arts clubs teaching Jujutsu and self-defence.

My philosophy is that everyone should feel comfortable in the gym, every person that walks through the door is trying to better themselves in some way and I love that, we all have our own individual journey, the gym is the most positive place you can be.  Roko gym itself is great, loads of space and equipment, the staff are very helpful and friendly and so are the members.  If you see any of the fitness instructors (orange tops) or the personal trainers (lime green tops) then feel free to say hi, it would be nice to meet you.

Enough about me, I look forward to seeing you at Roko, Happy New Year!
