Our Supportive Environment

Female Federation gym is Canterbury owned and operated.

We are a local and trusted gym that has been a pinnacle for women in the community, serving them throughout the Canterbury Quakes and many other changes and challenges in the wider Christchurch area.

About Owner - Meg Bolderston


Meg is a born and raised Cantabrian who has always had a passion for health and fitness. She started out as a personal trainer – both locally and internationally, where she started to help people from all over the world change their life through health and fitness. Her decision to run this gym was a big one – but she knew she wanted to be able to reach further into the community to help improve the world we live in.

Meg chose the name Female Federation because she wanted to create a community of like-minded ladies who support and uplift each other. There are many challenges facing women who are on a health journey – how much to exercise, what to eat, social media and the pressures it can cause - but we have created an environment where none of them can affect us! She believes that everyone can benefit from being fitter and healthier, and we at Female Federation are here to help you achieve the life you’ve always dreamed of. Both Meg and her team cannot wait to help you realise your potential and increase your quality of life.

Join the movement – join Female Federation.
