Gym Refurb - now complete - exciting changes at Roko Gillingham

20th December 2016 | Gillingham

We pride ourselves on our long standing delivery of premium health and fitness within Medway over the last 10 years and we’re delighted to be able to let you know that we have just completed a refurbishment of our fitness arena taking your club experience to a new high. 

This refurb involved the creation of a new specialised fitness area; the Performance Zone, enabling you to get more variety and results from your workouts.  We also reshaped and enhanced other areas with new equipment within Functional Training, Free Weights and Cardio.


Enjoy the most engaging all-round experience of Athletic Performance Training with SKILLMILL. High Intensity Interval Training on SKILLMILL™ is an effective way to achieve maximum fitness, burn fat and build endurance.

Improve your power, speed, stamina and agility, and enjoy the benefits of professional sports training in a safe, engaging and effective way. A unique solution offering a huge variety of workout routines to train all the body’s energy systems and turn you into a peak performer.


An Indoor Bike Designed For Cyclists. This is an indoor bike which replicates the smooth feel of the road and measures your performance with precise, intelligent data.

An indoor bike for aspiring riders who are committed to being the best they can be. The Wattbike has been designed in partnership with Olympic cyclists to accurately replicate the feel of the road. Combine this with the fully adjustable Wattbike set-up for the smoothest, most comfortable ride of any indoor bike.

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.


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.

Enhancements to our other areas include:

  • Expanding and enhancing the already impressive Free Weights and Hammer Strength Area with HD Elite Power Racks, 45 degree leg press, new flooring, new plate weights, new cable lat pull down and seated row, dumbbells and lifting platforms.

  • An enhanced Functional Training Area with TIYR, Plyosoft Boxes, Lifting Platform and lots of other new ‘state-of-the-art’ functional training equipment.

  • Group Fitness has also benefitted from new equipment.

Rest assured we intend to continue to improve your club to bring you the best value premium fitness experience in Medway.
