Portsmouth Newsletter January 2018

8th January 2018 | Portsmouth

Manager’s Message

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2018. As you can imagine, with one of the busiest months of the year, there is plenty to get involved in at the club as most of us get back to fitness from a period of over indulgence. This month we have the exciting launches of the New Les Mills classes including the new SH’BAM being showcased. The Fitness team are available to help you achieve your goals so should you wish to review your current workout or just need some helpful advice then please book your free stayfit. session through the website on the rokofit. link or at reception when you are next in club.

If you require regular 1-2-1 motivation and advice then personal training might be the perfect way to achieve your 2018 goals.  We have an excellent group of trainers who are taking on new clients this month. Please see notice boards in club for individual skill sets of the trainers and their contact details.

Wishing you health and prosperity for 2018. See you in the club soon.

Alun Davies, General Manager and Your Roko Portsmouth Team

Group Fitness

SH'BAM gives you an excuse to dance like no one is watching. This dance workout will have every part of your body moving to the infectious beat of popular hits. And you'll be burning calories while you're at it. SH'BAM instructor Simone Pan tells us more about this fun way to shape up.

How did SH'BAM come about?
Les Mills International is a New Zealand company that is the world's largest provider of choreographed exercise-to-music group fitness classes distributed to health clubs. SH'BAM is one of the programmes of Les Mills International.

What is SH'BAM dancing like?
SH'BAM lets you be the star of your own dance workout. The moves are simple so everyone can be involved in the dance.

How is SH'BAM different from other high-energy dance exercises like Zumba?
SH'BAM is a compelling cardio fitness workout. It burns calories, improves coordination, agility and bone density. A new SH'BAM release is produced every three months with new music and choreography.

What can a person doing SH'BAM hope to benefit from the classes?
If you regularly go to SH'BAM classes (three per week) and maintain a healthy diet, you will lose body fat. Most people will not experience significant weight changes but they will change their body composition. Body fat will be replaced by muscle resulting in a leaner body composition.

Which parts of the body does SH'BAM target?
SH'BAM is an effective program for improving lower limb bone mass as long as the training is significantly more intense than normal daily activities.
