“What a magnificent achievement to be recognised in the 2021 Topfranchise Awards, especially after 18 months of riding this pandemic rollercoaster up and down and around. Congratulations to all Fernwood Fitness staff and franchisees for continuously demonstrating the power of women (and a few fellas too) supporting women. My heart is bursting with pride for our community.”

- Diana Williams

Even after months (and months) of repeated closures and re-opens, the Fernwood Fitness community has rallied together to become stronger than ever, finding new and agile ways to retain business viability and growth during the ongoing global pandemic.

Fernwood Fitness walked away with awards in five of the six categories, including being listed as a top three franchise in the Topfranchise Passion category.
