About Fernwood

Our purpose is simple - we exist to empower women to shine.

The first Fernwood Women's Health Club was established in central Victoria in 1989 when Diana Williams recognised a need for women to have their own special space – a comfortable sanctuary to workout and enjoy regular exercise.

Since then, Fernwood has become synonymous with Australian women's health and fitness. Today, with health and fitness clubs all around Australia, Fernwood is the largest organisation of its kind with over 68,000 members and staff trained to help every one of those members shine.
