Portsmouth Newsletter December 2017

10th December 2017 | Portsmouth

Manager’s Welcome

With the festive season truly upon us the team and I wanted to take this opportunity to wish all our members a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year.

There are still plenty of activities taking place this December to ensure you get a good balance between partying and working out. We have included the Christmas opening times, spinathon and studio timetable in this newsletter to make sure you don’t miss out.

We have also created extra diary appointments in the Gym should you wish to have a free consultation with an instructor to refresh your programme or help set new goals for 2018. Please ask at reception or go on line and request your rokofit. / stayfit. session.

We'd like to finish the year by asking you to take a short survey about your membership and your experiences at the club. It should only take around 3 minutes to complete and we'd really value your feedback so please click on the link to complete our survey - thank you!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and we hope you enjoy your December at Roko

Darin would love to Thank everyone that took part and a special  mention Richard Barnes for giving me the idea in the first place and raising a load of sponsorship money. As did Adrian/ Dawn Pledg , Carole McCullough, Dave Thompson. And a massive thank you to Joe Quinell , who managed to raise over £550 for his bike , a fantastic effort. Well done to all for helping to raise this brilliant total.
