Why Fernwood

We know that walking into a gym can be intimidating. We've all been there before. The last thing we want is for you to feel self-conscious when you're running on the treadmill or approaching a new piece of equipment for the first time.

So we only employ female staff members who are – above anything else – friendly and approachable. We’re always walking around the gym floor, on hand, ready to answer any questions you may have. All you need to do is ask!

All the things you want

We've included all the things you want in a gym: enough cardio machines to go around, a variety of weights, lots of group fitness classes, online programs, child care facilities, free breakfast, and of course, squeaky-clean bathrooms stocked with all the essential toiletries for you to use, for free.

And then there are all the little extras, like the free chilled face towels handed out by our team as you train, and our bi-monthly Fernwood Magazine, free to members.

Programs designed for women

We know women. We know you're busy, and we also know that no two women's bodies are the same. Pear, ruler, apple, banana – there's a whole fruit salad of different body types out on the gym floor! What works for her may not work for you.

So we've tailored our programs to help you understand your unique shape and how to make the most of it. Our Food Coaching program delivers one-on-one dietary advice and personalised meal plans, while our Personal Trainers are trained to deliver 30-minute power strengthening sessions to tone up your trouble areas, leaving you time to get on with the rest of your day.

Support when you need it

We're not just a gym; we're a whole support network. When you're not working out, you can keep in touch with us and our members on our Fernwood Facebook page, sign up to one of our online programs for more motivation, enter one of our competitions, or read the latest health information on our blog or in our Fernwood Magazine. Or just drop into the members lounge to say 'hi'!
