Portsmouth Newsletter June 2019

4th June 2019 | Portsmouth

Manager's Message

Wow June is here and I’m sure you are now all thinking about your summer holidays coming up in the next few weeks. However, have you sorted you fitness plan yet?  Lucky for you we have a great selection of group exercise classes, wide variety of gym kit and stayfit. sessions all included in your membership. To book into any of these or even if you want a refresher on a different piece of gym kit speak to a member of the fitness team or reception. 

Linking in with summer holidays, are you and your children confident swimmers? If not and you would like a little help to build confidence, or a complete beginner needing some coaching lessons, why not join our swim school or have a couple of 1-2-1 lessons with one of our highly qualified swim instructors?

We also intend to run week long intensive swim courses, 5 days of lessons at the beginning of the summer holidays.  Keep an eye out for information at the end of June for dates and times.     

The Spa works have gone to plan and the whole area has been refreshed alongside some major building works behind the scenes to make sure the area remains safe for members to use. We hope you like it and thank you for your patience whilst the works were carried out.

Health and regards,

James Sandercock and your Roko Portsmouth Team

Booking Policy
Over the past few weeks there have been many people asking what the booking policy is for the group exercise classes and how far in advance classes can be booked. 

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the club with this required notice or repeatedly fails to attend a booked class then their booking rights may be withdrawn for a 14 day period.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.)  

Bring a Friend to any GRIT class this month!
For the month of June you can bring a friend for free to any GRIT class as we all know that working out with friends is fun and much more motivating.  To book your friend's place into the class please call the club on 02392 657 799.
