You Said, We Did

I wanted to say a huge thank you to all those who have sent in comment cards into the club over the past few months. On average we receive around 40 cards per month and they are used to shape the club.

Some quick follow up points to past comment cards.

* The new music system for studio 1 and 2 will be replaced on or before the 5th of August

* We were unable to fix the Smith Machine so have ordered a new one that will be on site from the 18th of August. My apologies for the length of time this has taken.

* This month we will be taking the spa area out of action for one weekend whilst we repaint the walls, doors and ceilings, grout the steam room and improve the lighting and airflow to the area. Dates to be confirmed on club notice boards.

* Thank you for the kind words on the improvements you have seen to the cleaning of the club, I have passed this on to the cleaning team.

Group Fitness

We are now running our Summer Group Exercise timetable. The timetable is condensed through the summer due to lower numbers in classes- this is temporary and classes will return in September.

Please could members be sure to check the timetable (either on our website or in the club) for any temporary changes. Any queries regarding this or any other timetable change please email achase@portsmouth.roko.co.uk
