Do I have to join for 12 months?
No. You can choose any length of term that works for you, but 12 month memberships are our most affordable option.
Online, however, we only process 3 month and 12 month memberships. Speak to your local club about other term options.
How much does it cost per week?
Prices vary by club and by package and start from just $18.90 per week.
Why is there a joining fee?
As when you join any club or team there’s a small start up fee.
It’s a one-off payment and you never have to pay it again as long as you are with us.
What facilities are available; classes, amenities, parking, childcare?
All the basics you can expect from a gym are included: cardio and strength training equipment, group fitness classes, and Personal Training.
We also offer some Fernwood-specific services like Food Coaching, free breakfast, our bi-monthly Fernwood Magazine, Members’ Lounge,
our 3 Step New Member Journey and complimentary toiletries in the change room. Extra facilities like childcare, parking and beauty services vary from club to club,
so we recommend contacting your local club for their list of services.
Are classes included in my membership?
Yes! You can attend our classes as often as you like.
What results will I achieve? How long will it take?
Depending on what you want to achieve, our Member Motivators will be able to work out a plan to get you the results you want in the time you want to achieve them by.
By engaging in regular strength and cardio training and maintaining a healthy diet, you can expect to have more energy, gain more strength and tone in your body,
increase your cardiovascular fitness and lose weight.
Can I use other Fernwood clubs?
Yes! Once you join, your home club can explain how this works.
Once I sign up for a membership is there a cooling off period for me change my mind?
Yes. The cooling off period is 7 working days.
If I decide to, how do I cancel my membership and what are the costs to do this?
If you decide you no longer want to be a member at Fernwood, you can cancel at any time. You should notify your club as soon as possible, in writing, to begin the cancellation process.
Cancellation conditions and fees will depend on the term of your membership.
What happens if I go on holiday or would like some time off the gym?
A 12 month membership can be put on hold for up to 8 weeks. This deferral can be extended for overseas travel or medical reasons, and the minimum deferral period is two weeks.
Your membership term end date or minimum term date will be extended by the period of your deferral. A small weekly fee applies to do this – check with your club about their policies and prices.
What will my first few visits be like?
There's no need to feel apprehensive when you first step foot inside a Fernwood club. In your first couple of weeks you'll be shown all the ropes.
On your first visit you'll be inducted with a Member Motivator who will go through your goals with you, show you where to find our lockers and change room, give you a quick ‘how to’
session for all the cardio equipment and navigate you through the weights area of the gym. You'll also receive a complimentary Personal Training session and complimentary Food Coaching session to get you on the right track. As you gain confidence, start trying different group fitness classes and trying new machines – after a couple of weeks you’ll feel like a regular!
What do I wear?
It’s no fashion parade at Fernwood, you just need to make sure you are wearing something that is comfortable and breathable. A good fitting sports bra and pair of trainers are important too.
Can I bring a friend?
Yes! Anytime. Just let us know before they visit and we’ll make sure we look after them too.
What types of classes are offered and when are they?
Each club offers a different selection of group fitness classes, so it’s best to check with your club by giving them a quick call or take a look online at their timetable.
We recommend trying as many classes as you can to see which ones you like best. Whether you choose BodyPump, Cycle, BodyStep, Zumba, Boxing, Pilates, yoga or circuit classes, the group atmosphere,
fun music, and enthusiasm of the instructor will keep you motivated and get you moving on those days when you otherwise wouldn’t feel like it. Classes usually last from 30 minutes to an hour,
which is easy to fit into your day. You burn calories and have a lot of fun while doing it!
How much is Personal Training?
Personal Training varies by club and by package, with prices starting from just $36 extra per week.
What is Food Coaching and how much is it?
Weight loss is as much about what you eat as how much you move. That’s why we offer weekly one-on-one sessions with a specialised Food Coach to motivate our members who want to lose
weight and keep them accountable to their goals. A Food Coach will work with you on a personalised, scientifically sound nutrition program to help you focus on achieving your weight management goals.
Prices vary by club and by package, starting from just $17 extra per week.
