FIONA BURKINSHAW

Class Instructor / Personal Trainer

Senior Group Exercise Instructor

I have been involved in sports and physical activity from a young age, competing in athletics, netball and hockey, where I have played for the Phoenix Hockey Club for the last 30 years.

I started teaching fitness back in 1990/1992 when leotards, leg warmer’s and headband’s really were a thing. The buzz from seeing people being happy while working out was addictive and once my class was over I couldn’t wait for the next one. With trends endlessly changing in the Fitness Industry I’ve never got bored as there’s always something new to enjoy and for that reason I can honestly say I probably enjoy it more now than ever. I’ve also worked for Pure Energy as Label Manager for over 10 years which is Europe’s Largest Fitness Music Provider, so I have a finely tuned ear when it comes to mixing exercise with music.

Here at I-Motion Gym I conduct many classes including Spin, Pilates and Cardio Pump to name a few. I am also the Senior Group Exercise Instructor who is tasked with internal standards for group exercise classes. This includes observations and assessments, training and mentoring of instructors.

I hold qualifications in the following programmes:

Active IQ Level 4 Certificate in Physical Activity and Lifestyle Strategies for Managing Low Back Pain, Level 3 Personal Trainer, Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral (QCF), Metabolic Effect rest- based Exercise Technology, Exercise To Music, Advanced Step, Studio Cycling, Fitness Pilates, Les Mills BODYATTACK and Gymnasium Management, Anatomy and Systems.

I hope to see you in a class soon.

Class Instructor

I've been teaching group fitness classes since 1999 starting with Step, Aerobics, Circuit Training, Aqua Aerobics and LBT.  I currently teach a variety of classes from Les Mills Bodypump, Bodycombat, Spin, Pilates and most recently yoga both within and outside of I-Motion Gym.


I love teaching group fitness, not only because it helps people reach their fitness goals in a group setting, but also because it gives me the opportunity to create a fun, lively and motivating environment for my participants to enjoy.


I look forward to seeing you in one, or more, of my classes here soon!

Class Instructor

Kelly for website & bio.jpg

Hi my name is Kelly and I am a Fitness Instructor at Imotion gym.


My love of exercise began relatively late in life- after having 2 children 10 years ago, I was looking to shift the extra baby weight- I joined this very gym and a new chapter of my life began. I fell in love with group exercise- not just because it helped me lose weight and tone up, but because of the social aspect and the amazing friends I made. I am a perfect example of ‘it’s never too late to change and develop healthy habits’, 10 years later and I couldn’t be without my exercise- I make going to the gym my ‘me’ time. I’m an extremely busy mum of 3 boys and finding time to train can be challenging so i made it a part of my working life.

 

I instruct Les Mills BodyPump which is a fantastic cardio- weights based class and Spinning which is a high intensity indoor cycling class.

 

My favourite part of instructing is watching people develop a love and passion for exercise in the same way I did all those years ago. It doesn’t matter what your fitness level is, all of my classes can be adapted to a beginner or advanced level. You won’t find a more friendly and supportive bunch of members in our classes- we all interact together, have fun and help each other to achieve our fitness goals.

 

I look forward to seeing you in my classes and helping you improve your physical and mental well-being.

Each class is designed to give you a well-rounded and engaging yoga experience, leaving you feeling stronger, more flexible and more focused.
