Empowering women to shine
We're the health, fitness and wellness clubs more than 70,000 women across Australia love. We made our mark on the fitness industry more than 30 years ago as the leading expert in women’s health, fitness and wellness. The first Fernwood Women's Health Club opened in Bendigo in 1989, by Fernwood founder, businesswoman, proud mother and weightlifting champion Diana Williams.
Today we have close to 70 health and fitness clubs situated in every state and territory of Australia. Our goal is to empower women to shine, by giving them the confidence they need to succeed in all they do.
Experience Fernwood Fitness
Exclusive for women, our clubs are purpose-built for perfect balance. Think strength and weight training, state-of-the-art cardio equipment, high intensity exercise, group fitness classes to suit every style - from FIIT30 to Tai Chi* to Zumba*, yoga and Pilates (with some clubs offering reformer Pilates too!), meditation and mindfulness. Members are supported by experienced personal trainers, food and nutrition coaching, world-first wellness programs, and a community of empowered women.
Because we know how hectic life can get sometimes, all members get access to our online platform MyFernwood, packed with recipes, workout videos, yoga and meditation, live chat with our resident nutritionist, and more, so you can move your body and calm your mind whenever it suits you.
*Tai Chi and Zumba not available at Fernwood Ultra
