Manager’s Welcome

November is upon us and we have exciting times leading up to Christmas at the club. Work has already started refurbishing our fitness area.  Keep an eye on our Facebook page for the latest developments and changes taking place and we expect everything to be completed by the end of the year and take your club experience to a new level.

I have attached the link below if you have not seen what is coming your way.

Remember it’s not too late to shape up for Christmas and the party season.  If you need a new programme or an existing routine that needs a few tweaks just contact the fitness team and they will be more than happy to help.

Healthy regards

Rob Brownsword
General Manager

So lots going on over the next few months and we have more information about all the new equipment coming soon.

FitLinxx Announcement

Earlier this year we were notified by the parent company of FitLinxx, who provide us with the FitLinxx system on our gym equipment, that they were putting the company into administration as they were unable to find a buyer for the business.

We have been trying to keep the existing FitLinxx system online and as normally operating as possible, although I am sure at times you will have noticed some shortcomings. These have been somewhat inevitable as FitLinxx withdrew all support from the product in April this year, meaning FitLinxx would not carry out any repairs or provide replacement parts.

This means that the FitLinxx offering at Roko will have to be removed, and will now be phased out during the remainder of the year.  Unfortunately we have no other alternative than to do this as FitLinxx will cease to function entirely as of 31st December 2016. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause you. 

If you would like increased fitness support during this phased removal of FitLinxx, for instance to be shown how to work out without FitLinxx, or if you have any specific queries about the system or your workout programme please see a member of the fitness team who will be happy to help you directly or book dedicated time with you. 

For Roko members, ongoing fitness support is always available, simply book in with the fitness team for motivational sessions, specific programme advice or to get you back on track.

We have also been exploring alternatives to the FitLinxx system so that we can, if appropriate, have a different fitness technology solution.  We are also developing and relaunching our fitness support services within club, through our highly qualified teams, as part of a new programme called “Your Roko FIT” which will be coming soon.
