Gym Refurb - now complete - exciting changes at Roko Portsmouth

20th December 2016 | Portsmouth

We pride ourselves on our long standing delivery of premium health and fitness in Portsmouth over the last 15 years and we’re delighted to be able to let you know that we have now completed the refurbishment of our fitness arena and have brought some stylish new furniture to the Club Lounge, taking your club experience to a new high.

This follows on from the investments we have recently made including the total refurbishment of the male and female showers and overall redecoration of the club. Thank you for the great feedback to date; we’re really glad you like it!

As part of the gym refurb, we have created new specialised fitness zones, including Performance and Synergy, enabling you to get more variety and results from your workouts. We have also reshaped and enhanced other areas with new equipment within Functional Training, Free Weights and Hammer Strength 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.

Row GX Trainer

The ultimate cross-trainer - rowing has been long renowned as the perfect aerobic exercise. The Row GX Trainer enables high calorie burn within a low-impact, total body workout. Its "Fluid Resistance" technology delivers a smooth and natural feel, and it allows for easy resistance adjustments to accommodate a wide range of users.

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.


Strength Power Accelerated Resistance Cardio

Lose fat. Build muscle. Gain strength. Increase metabolism. Improve power. SPARC does it all, more safely, because it’s biomechanically refined – providing exceptional results with low impact. SPARC’s intuitive “get on and go” design invites all users to simply choose incline and intensity levels, then reach their fitness goals in record time.


Since the PowerMill Climber is basically a revolving staircase that puts your body through a full range of motion, your entire lower half is targeted. Your calves, quads, hamstrings, and glutes are continuously worked as you mimic a stepping motion. No need to add squats to your workout after a session on this machine!

As your legs are being sculpted, your heart rate is soaring at the same time and it's low impact. In 45 minutes, the PowerMill burns approximately 360 calories for a 68kg. person. If you are looking for a double-duty strength and cardiovascular workout, this machine is your best bet.


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.

Synergy 360

The Synergy XL Mix Rig creates transformational and inspiring functional fitness experiences for dynamic small group training, which will feature on our new group class programme. It will also allow almost limitless functional training options for your own workouts so you really can spice up your routines.

Enhancements to our other areas include:

A greatly expanded and enhanced Functional Training Area with Synergy XL Mix Rig, TIYR, Plyosoft Boxes and lots of other new ‘state-of-the-art’ functional training equipment and a greatly expanded Free Weights Area with new flooring and weights.

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