With an opening date of 11th February, it’s all hands on deck down at Roko. However, General Manager Joy McLoughlin took some time out of the preparations to chat to about what she believes will set this new health club apart.

“I’m really excited about what we have to offer,” says Joy, “With everything finished to very high specifications, Roko will be a luxury adult health club. We’ve got a fabulous 20m indoor pool and luxury hydro spa, sauna and steam room. The gym has over 8,000 sq ft of floor space and features different training zones for example a raised boxing area and a dedicated spin studio.”

She continued “All the gym equipment is up to the minute with iPod docking and personal entertainment screens as well as housing the latest version of “FitLinxx” interactive personal trainer. There are three exercise studios each one dedicated to its own type of workout – high energy, mind & body and spinning.”

For those who enjoy the social side of health clubs (evening events will be planned when the club is up and running), the fully licensed members’ club lounge will serve Costa coffee and offer free use of internet consoles. The large hair and beauty salon – which will be operated by a well known local company – will be open to non members.

Add to all this free and secure member parking, luxury changing rooms, a series of free personal fitness consultations when you join and set it all in vast acres of green space, Roko certainly has the facilities to fulfil their promise.

But what of the much discussed controversial u-turn on children? “This is an adult club, not a family club.” Says Joy “Children will be allowed in between 12-4 on Saturdays and Sundays and will be monitored. I believe in a strict three strikes and you’re out policy for unruly child and will stick to it and there will be no inflatables.”

She continued “The emphasis will be on children being allowed to go to Mummy and Daddy’s club. We will keep adult swimming lanes at all times and families will be able to use the disabled changing rooms should they wish.”

Joy, who has had over 14 years experience in the industry including time at Holmes Place is currently working on site with membership consultants and the new director of fitness. She is currently recruiting for a number of other positions in the club. See jobs for more details.
