About MainFitness

Keeping Fit on Mount Tamborine

Robert and Siobhan opened MainFitness on 2 January 2012 with a strong desire to create a community minded gym for the Tamborine Mountain locals.

Conveniently located on Main Street, as you step inside you will be surprised by spacious gym floor, classroom area, extensive range of cardio machines, pin loaded machines, free weight area, children entertainment zone, and the quality of the equipment.

Gym Floor

The MainFitness gym floor space consists mainly of Cybex pin loaded equipment together with a large free weight area and multiples of cardio equipment. There is classroom for customer use when there is not a group fitness class in participation and a separate stretch area for use, when the classroom is in use.

We have an entertainment zone for children to stay safely whilst parents use the MainFitness facilities.

The free weight area consists of a large open raised matted area for noise absorption and safety. Together with various plate loaded equipment for use.

The cardio equipment includes treadmills both electrical and manual, plus arc trainers which basically are cross trainers and stepper machines, all in one, depending on the incline you choose. We also have a range of recumbent and spin bikes, together with row machines.

With ease you are able to follow the guided instructions on each piece of pin loaded equipment and/or ask a member of our team for assistance.
