Manager’s Message

I hope you have made the most of the good summer weather and have kept up your fitness levels - especially those of you who have been on holiday. The new timetable is now available to view after making changes over the summer and this month we have the new launches of the Les Mills classes (please see dates below). We have added a few new faces to our Gym team this month to help you with your stayfit. promises. Welcome Danielle, Anthony and Jodie so if you feel that you need some extra motivation or a new programme then please book in at reception.

We also offer free inductions to junior members aged 12 to 16 to allow them to use the machines during supervised times. Once the induction is completed they will receive a yellow band that they must wear each time they train in the gym. Juniors can use the gym facilities from 9am until 6.30pm every day.

I would like to make you all aware that we will be undertaking maintenance and redecoration of the spa facilities during the week commencing 11th of September for four days. We will be painting walls, doors and ceilings, completing an upgrade to the steam room and re-grouting throughout and improving the showers and seating facilities. We expect this work to take around four days and thank you in advance for your patience whilst we close the area.

Enjoy your September

Club News and Events

We have recently launched the sports nutrition brand Nutramino at Roko Portsmouth, with a wide range of products for both males and females available from the vending machine in Reception. Not only do the products taste great, but the entire Nutramino range will provide you with at least 20g of protein per product in order to help maximise your recovery & results from training. Regardless of your goal, protein is a crucial macronutrient with the following benefits:
* Increase in lean muscle mass (via increase in muscle protein synthesis)
* Increase in satiety (keeps you feeling fuller for longer)
* Can stabilise blood sugar levels
* Can lead to improved cognitive function
* Can help maintain healthy bone mass
For any more information on the Nutramino brand or products, please pick up a mini guide from reception.

We are hosting a Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September from 10am in the club lounge. If anyone would like to donate cake it would gratefully be received.
