It was a simple idea, curated by Diana Williams. She nurtured the gym for women concept, and carved out a space for women to exercise with confidence. That simple idea blossomed from one boutique gym into the national health, fitness and wellness clubs women love, with 70+ locations all around Australia with the best personal trainers and nutrition coaches specialising in women's health and fitness, and all the little touches that make Fernwood a haven for women. Fernwood offer a full suite of Fitness staples, strength training, cardio, group fitness, personal training together with mindfulness programs such as reformer Pilates, yoga and meditations. Members can enjoy complimentary breakfasts, child care and complimentary toiletries in our beautiful changerooms.
