General Manager


I've been at I-Motion Gym in one capacity or another for many years, over this time I've been a Personal Trainer, Supplement shop owner, Assistant Manager and now my current role as the General Manager.  I've loved the opportunity to continue to develop my career, develop others and work with people from all walks of life.


I have been fortunate enough to compete and win at a competitive level in Power lifting taking home the British Championship and World Championship in the Amateur Power lifting Union 2018 and the British Squat record for 2018.  Outside of the fitness industry I love to hike, travel and spend time with the family.

Assistant Manager


From a young age I have always been passionate about health and fitness, this passion only grew stronger when I entered the gym environment. The things our bodies are capable of doing and how they overcome and adapt is astonishing. I then decided I wanted to dive deeper into this and share my knowledge and understanding with others.
In 2018 I decided to take the leap and train to become a personal trainer and ever since have continued to expand my knowledge in an ever changing environment, most recently qualifying in rehabilitating people that have suffered with COVID-19.
I love seeing the results people gain from exercise, both physically and mentally, so, if you see me around, don't hesitate to stop me and quiz me on any questions you may have.

Hello, my name is Hannah and I have been a Personal Trainer here at I-Motion for over a year now and I am loving every second aiding people to feel stronger and improve their self esteem.

Over the last year I have worked with clients who have wanted to lose weight, get stronger, build muscle or someone who may just need that extra support within the gym environment.

Whatever your goal may be I will be determined to work alongside you so that we can reach this together!

Since qualifying as a Personal Trainer, I have expanded my knowledge through completing additional courses such as, Group indoor cycling, Level 3 Strength and Conditioning, Level 3 Working with Pre Pregnancy and Postnatal Clients.

I have always been into sports and fitness from a young age and I enjoy putting my knowledge I into my clients and the classes which I teach around the Gym.

My main goal as a Personal Trainer is to help people feel confident and comfortable both in and out of the gym whilst they build a Healthier Lifestyle Awareness.

Hi, I’m Tracy most of you will have seen me around the gym either training or cleaning, last year I qualified as a Personal Trainer as I’d decided after 30 years training, I wanted to help people with their training and help them achieve their goals or just improve their fitness.  

I’m 50 years old and fit, work hard and train hard I’ve a healthy attitude towards food that’s why I look like I do if you want results that’s what you have to do.

My least favourite word is “can’t” because until you try you will never know what you’re capable of!

Graham Rich

Gym Services Team / Personal Trainer


I qualified as a personal trainer in March 2014 and run my successful personal training business from I-Motion Gym whilst also holding the position of assistant manager for 5 years. I hold a number of class qualifications including: spin, kettlebell, boot camp etc.


I have also completed a long distance course on nutrition for health promotion and disease prevention with the University of California.

Before qualifying as a personal trainer I worked for 5 years at Wombwell secondary school as a cover teacher, mainly in the P. E. department teaching to G.C.S.E. standard.

I left I-Motion Gym in April 2018, but have recently returned on a part-time basis and can usually be seen behind reception or around the gym.

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.
