Portsmouth Newsletter July 2019

5th July 2019 | Portsmouth

Manager's Message

Summer is officially here and as I write this it is currently 29 degrees outside! I do hope that by the time you read this the fantastic weather is continuing.

With schools breaking up, holidays to plan, family trips and children back from university just to name a few activities going on at the moment, it is still important to put aside some time to do the things your love doing, and I hope that includes spending time in your Roko club.

During the next month we have lots going on in the club so make sure you are making the most of your most precious commodity (time) and getting the most out of your club membership.

Remember you can, at any time in your membership, book in for a complimentary stayfit. session with one of your fitness team to re-energise your workouts and get that extra motivation to reach your goals.

At the beginning of the month we have the relaunch of the Les Mills group exercise classes with brand new choreography and music so make sure you book your place via reception or the app.

Lastly, Roko Portsmouth has, in the past and with the help of members and some great effort from the team here, entered or put on events raising thousands of pounds for some very worthy causes. However as a club we don’t want to stop there. We are now looking at nominating a local charity to link up with and run fundraising events throughout the rest of 2019. This is where we need your help; we need your suggestions for a local charity. If you could either email your suggestions in or put them on a comment card and hand it into reception the chosen charity will then be selected from one of your nominations and announced in the next newsletter.  

Health and regards,

James Sandercock and your Roko Portsmouth Team
