Gillingham Newsletter July 2016

Manager’s Welcome

The summer holidays are almost here and the first half of the year has passed us by. Better weather and holidays - both UK and abroad – are great motivators for wanting to look and feel our best. Our fitness team can help you make this a reality.

Good things are happening this summer with our fantastic holiday camps. The trial over the half term was a great success with many happy children. Take a look at our competitive program of activities. For those who can’t take part in the camps, we will be offering 1 hour of children’s activities at 9:30 am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and the normal Saturday sessions.

We are having work done on our spa and our lighting but we hope to have all this complete in the next two weeks. Please bear with us while our new Maintenance Manager, Alastair Archer, works his way through outstanding issues.

Best regards

Rob Brownsword
General Manager

Club News

We are in the process of changing sections of lighting over to LED, not only will this decrease our environmental impact but will mean we will greatly reduce lights being out of action. With regards to this, please be patient as we change over areas one at a time. You may notice lights being out for a short period of time before being replaced for LED. We have a new contractor starting soon to improve car park and outside areas.  You should see an improvement very soon with all the vegetation being brought back under control! Please feel free to speak to our new Maintenance Manager, Alastair Archer, about any facilities issues you have, feedback is always welcome.

We are also really pleased and excited to launch our new range of speedo stock here at Roko Gillingham

We have some really nice fixtures displayed as you come into reception with a full range of swim wear for adults and children and many swimming accessories including some great swimming toys that will keep the little ones amused in the pool for ages.

There is a wide range of goggles for both adults and children and a great little sea squad range once again for the little ones. Please come along to reception and have a browse and if you need any help with sizes just ask one of the reception team who will be happy to help you.

Whatever your specific goal is, at Roko we are here to help you succeed.  Our consultants are some of the best in the business.

In order to achieve your goals all you have to do is provide a commitment and consistency to your training.  Your consultant will do everything else given this opportunity.

Your consultant is not just there to give you a program and show you how to use machines.  They are there to help make the most of your membership.  Your consultant can advise you on all aspects of the club, whether you think you just want to swim, you like classes, you don’t like classes, or you only have 20 minutes to train. Give your fitness consultant the opportunity to help you train smarter.  It doesn’t have to be harder.

Your Roko fitness consultant will also help you achieve the necessary commitment and consistency to meet your goals.  How?
By optimizing the time you have in the health club.
By explaining to you WHY you are doing what you are doing.   There will be no wasted effort.
By progressing and adapting your program.  This is necessary to hit your goals but also helps maintain your interest. 
By giving you appropriate exercises and explaining their specific benefits.
By making sure you know what results to expect from each progression.

Together with your fitness consultant you can define realistic goals and set your expectations for both short-term and long-term results.  Each program will give a result 4-6 weeks later.  It is then time for a new program, another short term goal and then another result.  Start out on each fresh program confident you are not wasting your efforts and knowing what specific result you are looking to achieve from that program.  You are now not only moving closer towards your ultimate goal but you’re getting that boost that results and success brings.

Expect more from your health club.  Book an appointment now.

Summer Holiday Camps

Do something amazing this summer at Roko Health Club in our Drama and Craft Camps.

Our new holiday camps will ensure your children get the most out of their holidays while giving you time to yourself. In our program children will have great fun while developing crucial skills: confidence; presentation; sportsmanship; social skills; sharing; team work; adaptability and patience

Our program includes a range of activities to encourage child development while trying some new and unique experiences they may not otherwise get to enjoy. Our team leaders Eva & Fern are experienced in delivering programs to children including drama workshops. They will encourage your child to experiment with drama and crafts in a safe, comfortable, and controlled environment.

Our half day and full day sessions includes planned activities with scheduled breaks and every child should come out of the session having had fun and with something they have made themselves during the craft hour.

A morning and afternoon snack of fruit is provided by us so there is no need to bring any extra snacks. Those staying for the full day have a half hour lunch break either a packed lunch from you or a lunch provided by us for £3.50. Prices range from £12 for a half day so contact us at the club for more information.

New Timetable:  Our Summer Timetable is being finalised now ready for the Summer Holidays. It will then run through to the 6th of September. Due to reduced demand in the holiday season and instructor availability, some classes will be taken off the timetable however we increase the numbers as it gets busier again in September. Expect to see the new timetable released within the week.
