Manager’s Message

Autumn, is a beautiful time of year and a last opportunity to enjoy the outdoors before things become too dark and cold, enjoy running with the leaves under your feet or cycling through the ever changing scenic views through the parks.

For the rest of us, it’s time to get back into the gym and the classes, to get our bodies ready for the next seasonal event of the year...CHRISTMAS. Sorry to highlight it (The supermarkets have been selling items as normal since September!), but many peoples next goals are to get fit for either the Christmas party or for when they see their extended family again over the festive season. If these are your goals, the gym team and the studio instructors are there to help you achieve them. If it’s just an escape and a warm place to relax then the Spa, Sauna and Steam room are ready to welcome you in or be pampered by the Boab team in the salon –Go on, you deserve it. Enjoy the Autumn, next stop Winter.....

Fitness News

NEW studio kit for the M&B studio!
Roko York is very excited about the new studio kit in the M&B studio.  We have brand new mats and foam rollers with a trendy and efficient NEW Mat stand!  These mats are excellent for Yoga, Pilates, Pure stretch and Body Balance but please be aware these are brand new and fresh out of the packet, so may be a little slippy for a couple of weeks…..especially in a Down Dog position!  Please do not stand on the mats with shoes on and always wipe them after class if you got a little (let’s say…) “hot” during your sessions!  Many thanks.

FitLinxx Announcement

Earlier this year we were notified by the parent company of FitLinxx, who provide us with the FitLinxx system on our gym equipment, that they were putting the company into administration as they were unable to find a buyer for the business.

We have been trying to keep the existing FitLinxx system online and as normally operating as possible, although I am sure at times you will have noticed some shortcomings. These have been somewhat inevitable as FitLinxx withdrew all support from the product in April this year, meaning FitLinxx would not carry out any repairs or provide replacement parts.

This means that the FitLinxx offering at Roko will have to be removed, and will now be phased out during the remainder of the year.  Unfortunately we have no other alternative than to do this as FitLinxx will cease to function entirely as of 31st December 2016. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause you. 

If you would like increased fitness support during this phased removal of FitLinxx, for instance to be shown how to work out without FitLinxx, or if you have any specific queries about the system or your workout programme please see a member of the fitness team who will be happy to help you directly or book dedicated time with you. 

For Roko members, ongoing fitness support is always available, simply book in with the fitness team for motivational sessions, specific programme advice or to get you back on track.

We have also been exploring alternatives to the FitLinxx system so that we can, if appropriate, have a different fitness technology solution.  We are also developing and relaunching our fitness support services within club, through our highly qualified teams, as part of a new programme called “Your Roko FIT” which will be coming soon.

Children’s News

Swimming Lessons
The current swim term will run from Monday 10th October – Sunday 18th December. Enrolment letters will be given out week commencing Monday 28th November by your child’s teacher.  The deadline for booking on is Sunday 11th December 4pm.  The “swap list” will be called between 4-8pm on Sunday the 11th December and the “Members” waiting list will be called from Monday 12th December 9am. If you do not re-enrol before Sunday 11th December 4pm your child’s place will be offered to someone on the swap list or waiting list so please book before the deadline! The next swim term will run from Monday 2nd January – Sunday 12th March.

Family Changing Room
We are receiving a number of complaints about children changing in the male and female changing rooms. If your children are having swimming lessons we ask all children to use the family changing rooms provided.

Junior Activities – Yoga Bugs
Yoga bugs will now be in the Energise studio on a Thursday afternoon with Angela.  Some of the children attending this class were getting extremely distracted by the M&B studio equipment so we have decided to move the class from the M&B studio in to the Energise studio.  This studio is a little cooler so we ask all parents to dress their children in layers for this class please.  Any children misbehaving during Angela’s class will be asked to leave and this may affect your right to book on in the future. 

Club Lounge
