We think our gyms are great - but just in case you don't believe us, here are some of our members talking about their experience with us.

It's our members that make our club special - so come in and see what all the fuss is about!


Wan has been with us for the last 6 months working hard and eating healthy consistently, to achieve a 10kg weight loss. She has been in the club participating in a range of different classes, as well as following the programmes our trainer Maria has made for her. You'll see Wan in the club most days working hard with a smile on her face! 

Natasha Lombart:

"I’ll be completely honest; just before Meg and her team took over at Female Federation I was ready to, and about to leave. I’ve been a member for a couple of years now and whilst wanting to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I wasn’t getting much enjoyment from coming to what was then called Viva and doing what I simply felt I had to do. That’s completely changed now. There is a new lease of life in the gym, the amazing team, the classes and even the equipment…..and I love it! It’s no longer somewhere I feel I just have to go, it’s somewhere I want to go and really enjoy my time here. I previously wouldn’t attend many classes and now it’s the main way I use the gym. It’s a great environment and you can see and feel the results. Meg and her team have listened to the members wants and needs and are always looking to better and adapt themselves for the benefit of their members and this really shows. The classes are open and welcoming to all abilities and give you a great variety of work-outs so you’re never left bored.
I’ve also been training with Maria, one of Female Federations PT’s. She is quite literally the embodiment of beauty outside and in. She goes above and beyond every time we train and genuinely supports, encourages and wants to get the best from you every step of the way. Her continuous positive attitude, and kind nature has been one of best parts of being a member of Fem Fed, and for that I’m truly grateful!"

The Best Little Gym…

I love this gym. Why?
Because it is women only, personal, friendly, encouraging, results driven, affordable, has lots of classes, good instructors, good equipment, and down right fun!
I moved to Christchurch a year ago not knowing anyone, and after joining Female Federation I feel it’s a place that I now belong to. Everyone is genuinely friendly. No fake smiles here, just normal women getting fit and having a good time in the process.
Meg and her staff are good at keeping things real, having fun, and facilitating your fitness goals.
They are also good at accommodating and adapting for what their members need.
If you want to get fitter, healthier, and have fun along the way then join Female Federation. I’m glad I did.
