Fernwood gets foxy with weight loss and Facebook

By Sarah Stowe | 29 Oct 2015 View comments

Fernwood Women’s Health Clubs has enrolled 4000 Australian women on the Get Foxy 12 week weight loss challenge across the 77 national franchised fitness outlets in an attempt to loss weight, keep their New Years resolutions alive and ultimately feel foxy and confident.

FernwoodÕs national weight management and fitness manager Nic Linford said one of the most important factors in staying on track is for women to feel supported and part of a team. So the national franchised chain’s challenge encompasses a team element where members are allocated to one of five different teams and are encouraged to share their experiences in an online networking site.

“We have created a Facebook page where currently over 1300 women are passionately sharing their progress and using it as a much needed shoulder to lean on,” Linford said. “Women especially need to be able to talk about how they are feeling and sharing their trials and tribulations with others who are in the same situation, makes the journey more enjoyable and less like a chore.”
