Meet the Managers!
We have had so many wonderful new members join the iGym family recently, so what better way to round out the year than an introduction to our club managers?
Our managers are always happy to lend a hand and they are a wealth of knowledge, so make sure you say hello next time you see them in club!
Ashley – Taree
Before working at iGym, Ash was a dancer for 18 years and rode racehorses for close to 16 years. She always has a smile on her face and says she loves iGym for being “a second family. We all support one another and have many laughs together.”
Ash has a beautiful 18-month-old son and loves spending her time outside of work baking or at the beach.
Mel – Singleton
Mel is a Kurri Kurri local and brings the community spirit to work every day. She says “iGym has been the best thing to happen to me, everyone from the members to upper management are so supportive and inclusive of everyone and it’s just the best feeling to have. I really LOVE what I do and being a part of iGym.”
Before joining our iGym family, Mel started her own business and has a background in Sales. Growing up she also competed nationally as a dancer and a gymnast. When she isn’t at work, Mel loves going to concerts and has a passion for motorsports.
Luke – Carrum Downs
Luke grew up in Glen Waverley and has been working his way up the fitness food chain for many years, starting with casual gym floor positions, personal training and now club management. Outside of the gym, he enjoys snow sports and golfing.
When asked what he loves most about iGym, Luke said “I love that we have a great community of members that all interact and are friends with each other. We have a supportive community that only wants to see you succeed in whatever fitness goal you have.”
Shannon – Kurri Kurri
Shannon grew up in and around Newcastle and has a background in sales and hospitality. She loves being a part of iGym because “it feels like a big family. No one judges you here and everyone is welcomed.”
When she isn’t at iGym, Shannon loves spending quality time with her family and friends, going on adventures and enjoying the outdoors.
Reece – Forster
Reece is a Forster local and has previously helped out at our Taree facility. Prior to iGym, Reece worked in conveyancing and was a professional swimmer from 2006 to 2009. He still loves being in the water and spends most of his spare time surfing, snorkeling and boating. Reece is also a new dad, which we have heard is his new favourite pastime.
Reece is a huge fan of the iGym members, staff, and PTs, as well as the wonderful community we have created. Before joining the team, he was a long-term member and saw the benefits firsthand, so if you are on the fence about joining reach out to Reece!
Rachel – Wallsend
Rachel has also been a long-time iGym member and says, “everyone is super friendly and welcoming, where you can be who you are and never feel judged or out of place.” She has a background in management and retail sales, growing up in Wingham before moving to Sydney then Newcastle.
When she isn’t working or working out, Rachel explores with her two beautiful fur babies, spends time with family and friends, and smashes out puzzles at an alarming rate.
Chris – Salamander Bay
Chris has a background in fitness and has worked in NSW and QLD as a personal trainer for 11 years. He has also worked as a fitness education presenter, so he is a great go-to person for all your fitness queries! Chris loves being a part of iGym because of how wonderful and welcoming our members are! “I love how much the community jumps in and supports local charities and fundraisers, and supports locals in need,” he says.
When he isn’t at work, Chris loves exploring the beaches in the area with friends and family and has a passion for basketball.
Carly – Salamander Bay
