About Main Street Fitness

High Intensity, Slow Strength Training

Strength Trainer

Main Street Fitness utilizes a unique method of high intensity, slow strength training (exercise) using custom-designed equipment.

Our approach teaches you to move the weight slowly in a controlled fashion. This will eliminate momentum, fully engaging the muscles, putting a greater demand on them to achieve muscle fatigue quickly. This process will stimulate the muscle fibers and trigger a strength mechanism, producing very effective results – stronger muscles. Eliminating momentum eliminates fast, jerking motions so there’s no risk of injury making it safer than traditional forms of exercise.

It has been proven that having short, brief workouts, with adequate intensity requires adequate recovery. Using this method of training is very efficient, usually recommended twice a week, each lasting only 20 minutes in duration. In this case, less is definitely more.

Main Street Fitness

Main Street Fitness Studio

Main Street Fitness was a thought that became a reality. It was our deep desire to open a personal strength training studio in Southern Sonoma County, in particular, Penngrove. We really wanted to make our facility unique. We took what we’d learned from our education and experiences and added our own ideas and energy. We knew we were ready when a perfect location came up in an old train depot (Penngrove Depot) and we got to work.

We transformed our space into a warm, light filled, open environment we now call home to Main Street Fitness. There’s open beam ceilings, refinished wood plank floors, large wooden ceiling fans, new paint and most of all, lovely people to share it with. When you come to Main Street Fitness, you become part of the family.

Main Street Fitness has a large selection of high quality, low friction exercise equipment, specifically designed for slow strength training. We avoid loud music, but rather prefer a volume more subtle so you’ll be able to focus on the task at hand. If you look around, you’ll see many fans to keep you cool during your exercise session and pads neatly stacked nearby. These pads are for us to help make the equipment fit your unique body, instead of your body having to adjust to the equipment. We also have free weights, cardio equipment and stretching pads for your convenience. From the moment you step into our studio until the moment you leave, it’s really all about YOU.

I have been going to Main Street Fitness for nine years and it has become an essential part of my exercise regimen. During that time, I have had shoulder surgery and other musculoskeletal issues which through their personalized workouts have definitely accelerated the rehabilitation process. However, the greatest benefit is the sense of well-being and accomplishment after each workout.
