Fernwood Gym, Yay or Nay?

By jenny123 - 15 May 2012 58

I am looking to join Fernwood gym and was wondering what others experiences where?

I am currently a member of club slime and I am so sick of the all roid munchers taking up all the weights, plus their crazed blood shot eyes scare me.

What’s Your opinion?

hahaha, this is the funniest thread for a while…even the question is funny and pretty much all the responses

BoredPS is tough but fair…telling it like it is 🙂

I don’t go to any gym and have never found gyms an enticing way to exercise…I walk every morning and jog every night…if you’re disciplined, you don’t need a gym

probably best to go with the gym that’s closest to you

crazed bloodshot eyes…ha, funny 🙂

Certainly sounds a bit; “if you cannot dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit” orientated to me.

Was the website the work of “Huh Corp.”?

Stay away from Fernwood and Club Lime. As a former employee and instructor at Fernwood and Lime, both are useless globo-gyms only interested in the $$. The care factor of management for members and staff is a minus 5. You are better off at Evo Health Club. Less people, no roids, no diva’s parading in the Lorna Jane Fernwood attire, and Evo gives you a PT session once a week as part of your membership. No I dont work for Evo Health Club however I am a member there now and VERY happy. Its at the premium upper price range and this keeps the steroid heads and diva’s out. Great gym and great facilities.

I personally love Fernwood. I have several friends who go there and love it as well. They have a free joining day next Wednesday if you are interested. The clubs are friendly, clean and supportive.

I am interested, but I also possess testes. Will this prove an obstacle to gaining membership?

Club Lime have a small gym in the city now at 121 Marcus Clark St and depending when you go there you will pretty much have the place to yourself. I walk past there quite often and usually only see 2 or 3 people there most times.

I was a member and hated every minute, the only good thing was none of them ever used the weights so I always had it to myself, good luck getting a medicine ball, most of them sit around bouncing on them while holding 10 gram dumbells as a workout, i believe they even have a whole hour ” toning” class dedicated to doing just that .

Seriously stay at club lime, harden up, put your head phones in, crank up your ipod and ignore the roid monkeys – most of them are gay anyway so you really have nothing to worry about. If you go to club lime Tuggers, consider going to another one, the further south the lower the IQ and the worse it gets.

Although I should mention one good thing about fernwood is all the fat overweight women wearing skinns make you feel better about yourself, it’s a great confidence booster.

Club Lime also have a club pink in the main Belconnen gym at CISAC. My daughter says it is pretty nice with free breakfasts. There are a number of other gyms in the Club Lime group. I find that Kaleen and the Oatley Court gym have more ‘normal’ people working out than CISAC.

I used to work in an office across the road from a womens-only gym. A certain manager setup a camera in the window on the gym, so he could watch the ladies working out from the privacy of his office.

On a more serious note, how do these clubs get away with discriminating so blatantly? Why cant we have Whitewood, a gym exclusively for caucasians, so we <southern accent>”dont have to look at any of dem colored folk”</southern accent>?

Creepy.

Also, in regards to your quetsion, I found this to be a pretty good explanation:

Minority groups once emphasised the similarity of all human beings and hence promoted the equal application of human rights. Currently, the same groups are embracing and promoting their difference and separation from society. These groups fought for acceptance and equality and now, even after the legislation had been introduced to enforce the equal application of rights, certain members are isolating themselves and even reverse discriminating in the action of ‘preventing discrimination’ against their own group. The precedent that has been allowed by section 89 of the Equal Opportunity Act, as well as decisions made by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), has challenged the entire notion of equal rights. The initial aims of the Women’s Liberation Movement as well as the LGBT stand out against the current aims of applying for exemption of the Equal Opportunity Act, the legislation founded to enforce equal human rights as well as restricting discrimination against particular groups of people. The policy that was implemented to develop equal opportunities and to impede discrimination is the same legislation that is allowing for groups to reverse discriminate, ‘legally’.

They get away with it like those clubs for men only get away with it -majority of women don’t care that men have clubs for themselves, men shouldn’t care if women have a gym for themselves. easy

Your solution may not have to be a woman only gym. And your perception of body-builders may in fact be skewed. Even blokes that don’t inject can be pretty massive and have testosterone levels off the richter – hence the scary eyes. Single blokes are probably even scarier with all that pent up frustration.

I will call it “Firmwood”

Awesome !!

I’m a member of club lime also, and I’ve also been a member of Fernwood, personally i felt more self conscious in Fernwood then i ever have in Lime. Yeh the roiders do get into the weights area, true – but if you go near them and are friendly they will be nice to you in return (usully works with most humans i find, drugged or otherwise) Depending on which club your actually going to, i have full membership so i travel around and find quiet ones when i need the weights. Otherwise club lime is the greatest place ever. Id rather work out near men who really are there for the same reason i am, then go to the perfume infused gossip/ bitch fest that was Fernwood. (Though i will add this in defense of Fernwood, i should say that when i really needed some weightloss help, they gave me 7 free personal training sessions, just to help. that was great of them and i will be eternally greatfull as i was a very very big woman, a womans size 32 and with the help and knowlege i gained from them- i am now a size 12.)
