News: i-motion gym opens in Rotherham

By

The £1.2m i-motion gym has opened in Rotherham, the first location operated by a new venture launched by former professional rugby player, Gareth Evans.

Taking over the former 15,500 sq ft Energie gym on Stoddard Way in Parkgate, it includes over 160 pieces of new, state of the art premium Matrix equipment, new showers and changing rooms, an innovative functional zone and refreshed, contemporary décor.

One of London 2012's Olympians, cyclist and gold medallist Dani King MBE, was the guest of honour at the official opening at the Foundry Retail Park.

The sporting superstar, who won gold in the team pursuit alongside Laura Trott and Joanna Rowsell saddled up and put a selection of gym members through their paces in the spinning studio, as well as demonstrating the wide range of Matrix gym equipment throughout the hour-long spin class also included members of the Matrix Fitness racing team and one lucky gym member Lyndsey Walker won the opportunity to take part in a one to one training session with Dani.

Gareth Evans, managing director of i-motion gym, said: "It was a great opportunity for members of our gym to train with an Olympian and hopefully take a lot from this memorable experience.

"Last summer Dani, who is a Matrix Fitness ambassador, and her teammates really did help inspire the nation to get more active and try something new, a legacy which we're keen to continue with our commitment to offering a monthly fee that makes fitness an affordable option for all."

Dani was joined on the day by Melissa Lowther, Jessie Walker, Penny Rowson and Hannah Walker part of the Matrix Fitness racing academy where she started her cycling career.
