Before I started the Challenge I was a bit sceptical about personal training – I thought it was a waste of money. But I haven’t been able to stop it. It keeps you there, you’re accountable to someone… you’re constantly answerable.

I used to believe that people who went through amazing weight loss transformations were just lucky, now I believe there are no chosen ones when it comes to weight loss. If I can do it, anybody can!

Boot Camp: The Fernwood Military Miss Bootcamp
Take advantage of Fernwood’s boot camp program and break the limits of your fitness.
The Military Miss Bootcamp program focuses on intensity and endurance, and while the physical and mental demands are broad and challenging, this Fernwood boot camp is also great fun. Recruits are pushed to reach their peak physical fitness while at the same time being encouraged to break the mental boundaries that restrict them.
The boot camp program package is designed to tone and tighten the body, and improve core strength and cardiovascular fitness by truly pushing each recruit to better their current physical limits.
This military styled boot camp is as empowering as it is physically beneficial. It gives Fernwood women the strength to break through the different factors that may block their fitness progression.
Fernwood’s Military Miss Bootcamp aims to be tough; however it is also designed to be great fun. It is the perfect way to get fit and meet a new group of people, all while staying active and having a good time.
Talk to your nearest Fernwood gym today about the benefits and availability of the Military Miss Bootcamp program, and take the first steps to empowering yourself and increasing your fitness.
Once upon a time, personal training was just for Hollywood actors and reality TV show participants. But Fernwood personal training is for every woman and it’s part of your essential toolkit for a healthy and lean body.
What is Personal Training?
Fernwood Personal Training Program is designed to give women the best results in the shortest amount of time. It’s that simple, and nothing beats it. The sessions are 30 minutes, one-on-one, with a strength training focus that will give you an all-over workout. And your workout sessions are tailored to your specific needs and fitness goals.
So what are the benefits?
Every six weeks, your personal trainer will provide you with a new program so that you get the variety you need for an effective workout over time – and you’ll never get bored. So that we don’t waste time, your session will be designed to incorporate exercises that use multiple muscles at once, giving you more of a workout for your time and money.
Get the results you want!
The personal trainer’s job is to push you more than you would yourself – but between the two of you you’ll determine how much you want to be pushed. Just remember: the harder you work out, the better the results.
At Fernwood, you will only work with qualified personal trainers, so you’ll be safe in their hands. You’ll also find that they are a great bunch of women. Plus, at the end of your session, you’ll get a shoulder and neck massage – now that’s having your trainer work for you!

Have you ever noticed that perhaps both you and a friend who share virtually the same BMI, exercise habits and diet, lose such vastly different amounts of weight? It’s all to do with body type.
Fernwood’s Food Coaching program has embraced this science, and we are seeing better results in our members than ever before.
The three body types are the apple, pear and ruler. You may already know which one you are, if not, you can easily find out by using our body type questionnaire.

Each unique body type requires a different balance of macronutrients – carbs, protein and fat – to function optimally throughout the day. When we get that balance wrong, we disrupt our hormonal balance, resulting in upset sleep patterns, a higher risk of a range of disorders, and excess weight. So if you’re finding it hard to shift those extra kilos, it’s a possibility you have that balance wrong.
Understanding your body type is the key to longer lasting health, wellbeing and weight management.
When you eat for your body type, you will:
- optimise your metabolism
- increase your energy levels
- improve your digestion
- balance your hormones
- sleep better
- and enhance your fat burning potential!
- optimise your metabolism
What we give you:
- full body type assessment
- weekly one-on-one support
- body type specific recipes
- body type specific meal plans
- seasonal cooking ideas
- tips for eating out
- weekly weigh-ins (to help keep you accountable to your goals)
- plus the skills and emotional support you need to combat your biggest food challenges
What It’s Like
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
The first Fernwood Women’s Health Club opened in Bendigo in 1989. Less than twenty-five years later, we now have over 69 fitness clubs situated in every state of Australia, giving our 68,000 members access to our unique women’s-only approach to health and fitness.
Our goal: to give women the confidence they need to succeed in all they do. Seeing our members achieve their goals, and hearing their amazing stories, inspires us to continue delivering world-class health clubs and programs to women across Australia.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
There’s no need to feel apprehensive when you first step foot inside a Fernwood club. We’ll be there to guide you every step of the way during your first 28 days in the club, and online. As a new Fernwood member, you’ll receive our revolutionary new online 28 Day Breakthru as part of your membership. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about weight loss, nutrition, mindset and exercise. So if you’re a beginner, even better – we’ll show you how to get it right from the start!
On your first visit you’ll meet with your Fitness Coach who will help you set some really solid goals and create an action plan for you to work towards during your first 28 days. We’ll also book you in for a cardio and strength training workshop, to get you feeling confident on the gym floor. As you begin to get comfortable, start trying different group fitness classes and trying new machines – after a couple of weeks you’ll feel like a regular.
During the first week, you might experience a few muscle aches and pains. That’s normal – you’ll be using muscles you may not have worked for some time. Just take it at your own pace and remember to have a rest day now and then. Try all the different cardio machines, take your time exploring all the resistance machines, and don’t forget to check out the group fitness timetable. A yoga class might be just what you need to soothe those aching muscles!
By the end of the first month, you’ll know exactly what you’re doing and will have hopefully met some new gym buddies. Keep things interesting by trying different classes, mixing up your workouts and challenging yourself. If you’re not feeling confident in what you’re doing, or need some extra motivation, book a few sessions with a Personal Trainer – they’re always available to give your workout an extra boost!
By scheduling in your gym sessions and making them part of your weekly routine, you’ll give yourself the best shot at reaching your health goals and feeling on top of the world!
