What our Members Say

I am certain I would not have been so well prepared on all things hiking

I had a dream to walk the Camino de Santiago before turning 60. Women's Fitness Adventures helped me become fit in both mind and body to achieve this.

Leanne Member since August 2021

I’ve learnt what I need to do to keep my body healthy and moving. I'm learning that the small, subtle moves often have the biggest impact

After 4 knee surgeries, a hip replacement and losing 24kg, Angela is now focused on her hiking.

Angela Member since 2020

With retirement on the way, I went looking for "that something"

The decision to make time for me came about as my husband had been seriously ill and I devoted a lot of time to him. Friends & family encouraged me to do something for myself. These days I am doing things I never thought possible.

Margaret Member since 2018

When people say I am too busy, 
I think about my years working 
in palliative care

For me, taking care of my health, avoiding regrets and living life to the full are huge goals. I've often seen how life can suddenly change. The Couch2Mountain program built my confidence, taught me to be brave and 
fed my soul.

Gwen Member since May 2021

I look back at the times when I 
was hesitant and now I'm hiking 
multi day adventures

One day I realised life was too short to sit on the sidelines. Friends health issues and early deaths were a wake up call. I wasn't into team sports, but hiking seemed like something I could do.

Belinda Member since 2020

I was coming to a crossroad in life and needed to make decisions

With her children grown and moving away, Debby was searching for a new way to celebrate the next chapter. She was hooked after her first multi day hike and hasn't looked back.

Learn More About Women’s Fitness Adventures

Here’s Why I Started Women’s Fitness Adventures

From a spark of adventure to igniting a fitness revolution, my journey began with a simple desire to rediscover the joys of the outdoors.

Back in late 2013, I stepped away from the corporate grind and embarked on a life-changing hike along the Great Ocean Road. That experience — filled with physical challenges, laughter, and camaraderie — was the spark for Women’s Fitness Adventures.

This sparked the creation of Women’s Fitness Adventures, with the belief that all women should experience the outdoors in a supportive community.

Now, 10 years on, we’ve empowered thousands of women to grow stronger and more confident, forging lasting friendships and unforgettable memories along the way.
