Group Exercise Programme

Here at Roko we’re extremely proud of our Group Exercise Programme but we know that we haven’t reached everyone! Here are some FAQ’s you might like to see before you take the plunge! A word of warning though – once you’ve tried group exercise, you very rarely go back!

Q: How much do the classes cost?

A: Absolutely nothing! They’re all included as part of your membership with us.

Q:Classes are just for fit people aren’t they?

A: Not at all. Whilst not all classes appeal to everyone, they are suitable for everyone. Our highly qualified instructors give you the cues and you work to your level.

Q: I am a complete couch potato, it will be better if I improve my fitness before joining a class won’t it?

A: Not necessarily. All classes are suitable for complete beginners and so a great way to improve your fitness is to jump straight in!

Q: I have an injury, can I still take part?

A: Most likely. Our instructors have years of experience in offering alternative or modified exercises to train around injuries, weaknesses or joint problems.

Q: I’m a little intimidated by the classes – everyone is so experienced, will I be able to do it?

A: Of course! There are always new people attending classes and the atmosphere in the studios is always friendly and welcoming.

Why Wear Goggles For SwimmingEvery swimmer, whether recreational, serious or professional should own a pair of goggles before taking the dive.

A leading international swimming brand understands what it’s like to have dry, red swollen eyes after swimming without eye protection and recommends goggles as an essential piece of kit for the following reasons:

  • Protect eyes from salt, chlorine and other chemicals used in the water-chemicals can be damaging and red, stinging eyes are very uncomfortable.
  • Protect eyes from bacteria in the water ensuring health is maintained – you only have one pair of eyes and you need to look after them.
  • Helps you see where you are going – don’t be the hated swimmer who zigzags across the pool causing mayhem to fellow swimmers.
  • Protects your eyes from other swimmers – we’ve all had run in with a flying arm while lapping in the pool.
  • Shield eyes from the sun and glare from the water – good quality goggles ensure that eyes are fully protected from the sun’s harmful rays and glare from the water’s reflection – both of which can be very detrimental to eyes, like sunglasses for swimming!
  • Chemicals & bacteria found in swimming pools are one of the biggest causes of conjunctivitis. Wearing goggles can help prevent your eyes coming into contact with pool water and so reduce your risk of suffering from red, swollen and scratchy eyes. Contact lens wearers should never wear their lenses in the pool as chlorine and other contamination may remain on the contact lens material causing complications.
A vast range of Zoggs goggles & accessories available from Reception.

Tiny Talkers Day Nursery

Tiny Talkers Day Nursery is a small, friendly day care provider, dedicated to ensuring the highest possible standards of care and education within a fun, stimulating and caring environment. We believe that all children are unique and we continually strive to provide the building blocks that each child needs to become an independent lifelong learner. We recognise children’s individual interests and developmental stages and use this to provide activities to build their confidence, creativity and independence. Tiny Talkers Day Nursery puts communication at the heart of everything that we do. We understand that communication is fundamental to every child’s development. Our highly trained staff provide the right environment to ensure that all children have the opportunity to become confident and competent communicators.

The Nursery is jointly owned by Sarah and Steve Bond who are both from professional backgrounds – Sarah from Education and Steve from Social Care.

Sarah has been in education all her working life both in the secondary and early year’s sector. More recently she has specialised in promoting the importance of speech, language and communication in settings and schools across Leicestershire. Sarah is ‘hands on’ in the nursery and is committed to offering the best experiences for children and developing positive relationships with parents and carers. Steve continues to work in Social Care as service lead for children in care in Leicester. Although less hands on in the nursery Steve is fully involved in overseeing the management of the Nursery.

Tiny Talkers caters for children aged from birth to 5 years in the Day Nursery. We are a small, friendly 35 place nursery and we provide full-time and part-time care. The Nursery is privately owned and located within Roko Health Club, but is open to members and non-members alike. Our partnership with Roko means that children attending Tiny Talkers benefit from the use of the health club facilities, including regular swimming sessions, and use of the studio for music and movement.

We provide care and education within 3 age groups:

Teddy Bears: Our babies (from birth to approx. 12/18 months)

Sunshines: Our toddlers (from approx. 12/18 months to 2½/3 years)

Rainbows: Our pre-schoolers (from approx. 2½/3 years to school age)

Each room is well equipped with high quality toys and resources which are age appropriate. Many of the resources are holistic and open ended to enable each child to develop their imagination and creativity. We have cosy spaces in each room where children can choose to relax, share a book or have a chat to their friends.

  • We have an extensive outdoor area in which children can run, jump, climb, play, talk and relax. We also offer a number of other services at Tiny Talkers
  • Holiday Clubfor children aged 5 to 12
  • Birthday Partiesfor children of all ages
  • Before and After School carefor children attending South Wliford Primary School
  • Crèchefor children of Roko members
Timetable for the half term holiday club is now available.
