Manager’s Welcome

Summer has well and truly arrived! The outdoor pool is buzzing and our cool gym and studios are a welcome relief from the heat. Make the most of this glorious weather though and utilise all of your strength and mobility gained from your workouts in the gym and our studio classes by getting out in the beautiful fresh air and our lovely local countryside. 

If you are looking to boost your fitness and lose a few pounds for your summer holiday then why not consider trying one of our Rok-x classes on the gym floor. Rok-x classes run 09-09.30 Monday – Sunday and also 11am Saturday and Sunday. Check out our timetable. Great for that extra blast and when time is limited.

Don’t forget through these warmer months to stay suitably hydrated and even if just chilling by the outdoor pool make sure that you are applying plenty of suntan protection on a regular basis.

Have an amazing summer.

Sales of high-caffeine energy drinks to children under 16
With health and wellbeing in mind please be aware that we are stopping the sale of high-caffeine energy drinks to children under 16 from 1st August 2019.
High-caffeine energy drinks carry advice stating that they are not recommended for children, and there are widespread concerns about the impact that these types of drinks can cause when consumed by children under 16.
Therefore Roko is choosing to proactively act on the manufacturers guidance and these health and wellbeing concerns.

rokoRIDE (previously CYCLonE)

In June we took ownership of our new group exercise bikes.
The CPX Target Training Cycle offers magnetic resistance for a smooth, consistent ride and adjustment and watt measurements within 2% accuracy.  The new console brings with it a whole new cycling experience with a unique LED wrap that will encourage riders to reach their full potential with a range of programs including interval, pace, heart rate and goal based workouts. Our instructors completed their training with Matrix, so they are really excited to bring you new innovative ideas into your workouts.

Shred 6 week course update


Our first 8 week Shred course came to an end in June.  We had some outstanding results gained by our members working to their max.  Conor put them through their paces with varied strength and cardio workouts based around interval training. 

Accountability was key on this course. Measurements and weight was taken by all participants.

The best results were gained by Leon Jackson who lost an amazing 15kg by taking part and eating a healthy balanced diet.  Well done Leon, and congrats on your prize.
