Portsmouth Newsletter April 2019

1st April 2019 | Portsmouth

Manager’s Welcome

Where has the time gone? We are already a quarter of the year through and Easter is nearly upon us. Are you sticking to your 2019 health and fitness goals? Do you need that little bit of extra motivation? Don’t forget to get booked into a complimentary stayfit. session with one of our fitness team.

During April we are offering a 14 day trial membership for your friends and family for only £20 or £10 for children under 16 years old. If you would like to take advantage of this offer visit our website or ask for a member of the membership team when you next come into the club.

Our kids activities programme is growing so please keep an eye out for additional classes running throughout the Easter holidays. May I also take this opportunity to remind all members that children under 12 years of age are not permitted in the gym area and that all children under 16 must be wearing a yellow wrist band whilst in the gym which they are given as part of their gym induction. For further clarification on Gym rules and etiquette please speak to a member of the fitness team.

Enjoy the rest of the month and Happy Easter!

Health and Regards,

James Sandercock & Your Roko Team

Booking Policy
Over the past few weeks there has been many people ask what is the booking policy for the group exercise classes and how far in advance can I book for a class? 

To clarify this all classes can be booked by members 8 days in advance from 9pm onwards online via the App, if booking in person or over the telephone then members may only book from 7 days in advance from the time the club opens.

Cancelling classes, members must give at minimum of 2 hours prior notice to the club either by telephoning the club or cancelling via the App. If a member repeatedly does not provide the club with this required notice or repeatedly fails to attend a booked class then their booking rights may be withdrawn for a 14 day period.  (Please note you must swipe your membership card at the reception turnstiles in order to record attendance to a class)

Our Easter timetable will run from 8th-22nd April and will be available from reception on the 1st April 2019.
