Fernwood. For Women.

Now, you’ve probably been to a fitness club before. Perhaps pre-kids when you would rock up in the morning after a massive night and feel perfectly okay to row 5km on the rowing machine before doing a spin class. Probably down a protein shake and then smash out 200 situps. No biggie.

Well, lovelies, if you’re like me, odds are, those days may be behind you now. For some of us, well behind us. In fact, most likely the last thing I want to do is row. Unless it’s rowing my kids out the door or me into some quality time to myself!

Fast forward a few years (and a few kids)and it’s time to enter a new era of health and wellness, one paved with support, expert trainers, FREE brekky and coffee. And one that is just for women. Row on over this way!

For those days when you’re a bit too exhausted to get changed and get in the car, Fernwood also offers virtual workouts so you can still exercise in the comfort of your pjs at home.

Reclaim your mornings

Head to Fernwood before work, get your FIT30 class session done and dusted, and then hit the showers.

Fernwood Fitness prides itself in sparkling clean change rooms and amenities that go above and beyond. They’ve got hair products, hair dyers, even hair straighteners so you can leave the gym ready for work or whatever the day has in store.

Free brekky for all women

They’ve even got breakfast sorted. Every Fernwood Fitness club offers free breakfast and coffee in their beautiful members’ lounge. Have a cuppa, check your emails, get in your daily Wordle (before someone shares the answer on Facebook), and still get to work on time.

Daily childcare

Not a morning person? No worries – Fernwood Fitness provides group fitness classes throughout the day as well as creche operating in most clubs at the same time as their classes, roughly around 9am to 12pm daily. You can bring the kids during the day and still get your workout in.

Evening workout warrior

Most Fernwood Fitness gyms are open 24/7 so if you’d prefer to exercise in the evening after you’ve dealt with the chaos of the day, you can. Your secure member FOB ensures you can safely enter and exit the club whenever you like, and the clubs are fitted with first aid equipment should you need it.

If you’ve got older kids who happen to do a slew of after-school activities, evening workouts are also a smart move. Drop them at their soccer practice/swimming lesson or <insert activity here>, book it to your nearest Fernwood Fitness and squeeze in a workout. It beats sitting on the sidelines waiting for them.

We know it’s not always easy to find time for fitness but at Fernwood Fitness, you’ve got a world of support to help you get there.

A safe, supportive, women’s only gym network

This is one of the things that especially stands out about Fernwood – they understand that gyms can be a scary place for some of us and that they are there to support every single member.

Many women are riddled with anxiety about pushing out of their comfort zone and pushing their bodies, especially in front of others.

One woman who felt this way was Shayna, from Toowoomba. As she shares with Mum Central, 

Joining a gym was very very scary but I wanted this enough to try. I was afraid people would look at me. I was afraid that I would walk in somewhere where I didn’t belong. I was afraid that I would embarrass myself. I was scared of everything.”

Fast forward 15 months and Shayna is physically fitter than she has ever been and has a whole new outlook on life.

When I first walked in, I wanted to lose weight. But, it’s been so much more than that. I can do things now that I never thought I would be able to do. I’m not embarrassed, I don’t feel like everyone is looking at me. I’ve set myself up to really change my story.”

Another Fernwood Fitness warrior, Katrina, echoes this notion about why she chose to become part of the Fernwood Fitness family:

My self-esteem was getting pretty low, even though I was good at hiding it, and I was so tired and achy all the time. I was approaching mid-40s and I didn’t want to get older being unfit, unhealthy and unhappy. I have two teenage boys who I wanted to keep up with.

But most importantly, I wanted to feel good in my own skin. I just knew it was time and I was in the right headspace to make it happen.”
