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.

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.

Hi, my names Hannah and I am a qualified Personal Trainer and excited for my new adventure here at I-Motion Gym.  

 

Physical activity and fitness has always played a huge part of my life whether that was through sports clubs, like hockey and gymnastics, going to exercise classes with my mum, or now, in the gym and long distance running.

 

The main reason I wanted to become a Personal Trainer was to share my love towards fitness with others, being that a complete beginner who has never stepped into a gym before, or someone who just needs an extra pair of eyes on their session.

 

The main aim for me as a Personal Trainer is to ensure that others feel comfortable in their own skin as they build a Healthier Lifestyle Awareness.If you would like some more information you can email me at: hlafitness@yahoo.comor message me on Instagram at *HLA_FITNESS

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!

I have been training for many years and have ranged in styles throughout my fitness journey including dance, swimming, running and now weight training. My main aim when training is strength and to show other women that we too, can be strong. Training has been a huge part of my life and has helped me in many ways including gaining confidence.

 

I have worked at I-Motion for many years, I first started as an apprentice and have since become a fully qualified personal trainer. I teach a range of classes here including spin, X-FIT, SHRED and a weight training method class. Whilst teaching these classes, my confidence has grown hugely along with my love for fitness.

During my PT sessions, I main focus is weight training, using this to help my clients lose weight, gain muscle or both in one. I have found my approach has helped all of my clients reach the goals they are wanting to achieve. Showing people that weight training doesn’t always make you ‘big’ or ‘bulky’ is a huge motivator for me as a PT and I like to outline these in my sessions.

If you see me around the gym, please don’t hesitate to stop me for a chat, whether this is on fitness, help setting your goals or just a general chat.

Gym Services Team / Personal Trainer

I first started my fitness journey at the age of 4 playing tennis with my older brother, I went on to play for the under 14's Yorkshire team and then the England under 18's.

 

I first stepped into the gym at the age of 16 with my dad in hopes of improving my strength and fitness and instantly fell in love. I specialise mainly in strength and conditioning as this is a real passion of mine, however, I am able to focus on all parts of fitness.

 

I am always available for a chat, so if you see me around, don't hesitate to stop me and we can chat all things fitness (and tennis)

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.

HARRISON SMITH

Gym Services Team / Apprentice

Surrounded by sport growing up there was no doubt I would end up in a gym. Playing football from a young age started my love for training as a whole eventually leading in to joining the gym. Training in and out of the gym and seeing improvement is what I’m passionate about.  

This is why I wanted to be a personal trainer.

 

Training and helping my mates in the gym watching them get bigger, stronger or fitter and being involved in their own process is something that I enjoy doing.

 

I want to expand this and be part of the progress of other people and help them reach their goals in the gym as well.  

My main aims for the apprenticeship are adding to the knowledge I have and learn new ways that will help me to help others get the results they want.
