Refurbishment update:

Hi all,

As you are reading this you will have no doubt noticed that exciting changes are occurring within the Fitness Arena. A new 260 square metre functional flooring has been laid at the far end of the floor including a Roko branded sprint track which I must say looks fantastic!

Life Fitness were on site for 2 days installing the most up to date equipment on the market. Additions include a synergy 360 rig which allows multiple people to work out at the same time using the same equipment with features including a rebound board, battle ropes, pulleys, platforms, monkey bars and much more. If you prefer a machine based program we have the latest in cardio performance equipment including SkillMills (arriving very soon!), WattBikes, Water Rowers, and PowerMills.

This would be a great time to book in for a stayfit. session to let one of our fitness experts give you some guidance on how best to utilize the new equipment to ensure you get the best results possible… and enjoy the experience even more!

Club News and Events 

Roko Charity Day

A Huge thank you to all who took part and contributed to the Charity day on Friday 11th August and made it a massive success. Our aim was to raise £300 to sponsor a young girl called Doreen in Uganda, who is abused. We raised a whopping £513.98, which means Doreen can be moved in to the orphanage away from harm and abuse and look to a better future.
