Gillingham Newsletter November 2017

6th November 2017 | Gillingham

Manager's Message

November is here and that means it is officially nearly Christmas.  As much as we can’t wait for the advent countdown, the tinsel, the mince pies, the mulled wine and the family festivities we thought we would start by telling you about a few of our plans for next year which are very exciting.

Much of this year has been spent on renovating our back of house and overhauling the building systems to ensure we can provide the facilities you want when you want them, but we love nothing more than making things look and feel good for our members. In 2018 one of the most important changes is that we hope to launch online booking and a Roko App to make your access and use of us more current and relevant, keep in touch with us at the touch of a button, book classes and more. We are very excited and are looking into this from May onwards.

We also plan to redo our studio flooring to restore it back to its former gleaming beauty as well as adding in some new studio equipment, look to redecorate other areas, spruce up our Spa, beauty area, add additional classes (see the fitness section within the newsletter) and more.

We also want to create a club within a club aimed at providing social events for our members and guests.  Whether it be quiz nights, speed dating, family fun days, days out, group sporting events such as Roko Runners at Tough Mudder or Dirty Dozen there will be something for everyone to enjoy and take part in.  It will be your club so if you have any suggestions for events you would like to see in the club, please let us know.

We can’t wait to celebrate Christmas with you and see you reach your goals and dreams in 2018.

Our staff love to talk to our members and guests – if you have something to say , small or large, let us know so we can help you.  Don’t forget to book into your complimentary stayfit. sessions, in essence a complimentary PT session to re-fresh your workout and spice up your time in the gym.  Stuck in a rut, a bit bored?  Let our team work with you in a stayfit. session to reignite your passion for fitness … it is little black dress and tuxedo season after all.  These can be booked every 4-6 weeks and can be done via Reception or via our website.

New Classes for 2018
As a family club we want to offer members of all ages the best facilities and we are looking to relaunch our January time table with families and also seniors more in mind with additional children’s classes and classes aimed for 60 plus.  We will of course be focusing on members who fall outside of this and are looking at new and exciting classes to cater for those commuting who need early morning classes and later at night with more on the weekend to name a few changes.  Pole Fitness – you asked for it and we are looking to see if we can fit this into our time table.  New, exciting, perfect for the core muscles and soon hoping to be recognised as a discipline for the Olympics.  Keep a look out for your new January time table.

Personal Training
it’s time to get personal

Personal training means something different to everyone. Whether you are training for a particular event, have weight loss goals, fitness aims, or health and lifestyle ambitions, personal training can help you to:
* Achieve more with your health and fitness
* Lose weight faster
* Stay motivated to come to the club more regularly
* Boost yourself out of a fitness plateau
* Add variety to avoid workout boredom
* Prepare for an upcoming event.

Personal training is great value and is within reach of everyone. Providing motivation, inspiration, support and guidance, personal training will give you the boost you need to move on with your health and fitness and achieve your goals more quickly than you thought possible. Roko personal trainers are friendly and approachable but the most important decision is choosing the best one for you. Our elite personal trainers have specific areas of expertise, additional training and qualifications and will suit those who have specialist requirements.

For a FREE CONSULTATION or to book a personal training session please see reception or any member of the fitness team or click here to enquire on-line.
