One-On-One Health and Fitness Coaching
Our Personal Training Staff has many years of experience working as fitness and health coaches. They each have areas of expertise, a wide variety of certifications, and different styles. While you may train primarily with one trainer, over time you’ll likely enjoy the different approaches of all of the trainers. Read on to learn more about the background and passion they each bring.
Robin was a client of Main Street Fitness before becoming a trainer. Her story is remarkable. She came to Main Street Fitness with three herniated discs. She had limited range of motion and was in a lot of discomfort. Starting out very slowly and carefully she was able, over several years of strength training, to recover a significant amount of mobility. Other treatments and practices had not worked. Inspired by her progress, she decided to become a trainer. She has a gift for working with clients that have an injury or physical limitations. Robin continues to workout at Main Street Fitness.
Robin is a student of Dr. Doug McGuff and believes fully in his super slow methodology (read more on our protocol page). An avid proponent of this practice, Robin continues to learn new exercises and techniques that make her clients strong and fit. Her clients enjoy their training sessions with Robin and have been with her for many years. Robin lives with her husband in Petaluma.
Colette fell in love with the ‘Super Slow’ protocol in 2014 after 35 years of walking, aerobics, yoga, step classes, spinning, etc.
Colette says, “Super Slow transformed my outlook on body and exercise. With just a little hard work, determination, and good eating habits the results and benefits are phenomenal. I realized I was actually becoming weaker from walking, and spending way too much time in the gym. I continue to strengthen my muscles to provide me the stability and balance I need throughout my life.”
Colette has a passion to learn and guide others to the benefits she also has received over the past seven years. Colette is excited to be a part of the Main Street Fitness team.
