PT charges $30k for entry to Australia’s most exclusive gym

The owner of Australia’s most exclusive gym has revealed why his rich and famous clients are happy to spend over $30,000 for an annual membership — and why they train harder than the average fitness buff.

Chris Wilson, 33, who made his mark as a personal trainer with the Welsh national rugby union team, is now targeting Western Australia’s richest people.

The new dad charges $579 a week for his platinum membership option and says his gym’s parking lot is filled almost exclusively with Porsches and Range Rovers.

The Chris Wilson Fitness Studio is so exclusive that only 50 memberships are offered at a time, giving the nine trainers plenty of time to help clients achieve their fitness goals.

The gym has only been open for six months, but Chris told FEMAIL that he already has clients seven days a week and a strong fitness community, especially within the platinum membership group.

“We think they are very disciplined people, they have tight schedules and are always on time and ready to leave,” he said.

These first-class customers rarely waste time or play with their phones instead of working out, Chris explained.

“We all train with them all at least three or four times a week and they step in and get it done because they know it’s their only 45-minute time to exercise that day.”

Chris opened the uber-exclusive studio six months ago and has quickly attracted a very rich - and very dedicated - list of clients

“A lot of their PAs check their schedules, so we see them at the same time every day.”

Chris can’t reveal the names of his clients, but says they include prominent Perth businessmen, mining bosses, hoteliers and their wives.

“We serve a lot of women here from the western suburbs,” he said.

Platinum membership includes access to body composition scans and the high-quality Bodyscape yoga studio run by Rosanna Susanto, Mr. Wilson’s partner.

“When I pulled out the package, I was worried that people wouldn’t want to spend that much,” he admitted.

“But it’s been very popular and it’s good value for money because there are so many incentives with other local businesses, it’s an all-inclusive approach to wellness.”

Membership includes dinners at well-known restaurants, massages, and even discounts on morning coffee.

Chris is opening a boxing-style gym next month, which will also have a 50-member limit — and platinum members will get access to both centers.

The 10-minute workout Chris swears by to get ready for summer

Luke AJ, one of the trainers at the Chris Wilson Fitness Studio, has put together the following workout to help his clients get ready for the party season.

The workout is a preview of the programs Chris and his team can put together:

5 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible)

5 x hand-release push-ups

5 x Sky Divers

5 x Jackknife crunches

2. Block of 5 minutes

Ascending reps – 2, 4, 6 – go up as far as you can

Dish Rocks

Double Pumper Push Ups (two pulses at the bottom)

Squat then Reverse Lunge (one lunge each leg is one rep)

‘We make sure to provide all the high-quality extras, such as cool towels so they can be stretched properly and an impeccable presentation.’

The gym is always incredibly well organized with Chris even lining up the weights perfectly after each use.

But one feature of the impeccable gym can shock regular trainers.

“We don’t have mirrors here,” he laughed.

Chris believes that his employees should be able to help instruct his customers if their form is incorrect.

And thinks mirrors can also distract people from exercising properly.

While the platinum membership was popular, Chris’s gym also offers silver and gold options that are $100 and $49 per week, respectively.

But they do not include personal training sessions and offer limited access to the gym and partnered yoga studio.

When Chris first came to Australia in 2012, he had $50 in his pocket and crashed into friends’ floors.

He planned to travel around the country with his backpack, but fell in love with it instead.

“I called my mom and told her I was never coming home,” he said.

He is now a citizen and has just become a father for the first time.

When he arrived in 2012 with just $50 in his pocket, he never thought he would charge $30k a year for gym access and training

He says he is humbled by his success.

“If you’d told me I’d be charging that much for a membership, I wouldn’t have believed it, but now I’m starting to think I should be asking for more,” he said.

He even upgraded his car to fit his new lifestyle.

“I used to train these guys in my Suzuki Swift which must have looked strange as I’m over six feet tall, now I have a jeep,” he said.

Chris’s $30k Tips for Training Effectively

1 – Always keep your training structured, know how long you work and how long you rest. This prevents you from being distracted by your phone.

2 – Stay hydrated, this is so important, but too often I see people who don’t even bring a water bottle to the gym. Being well hydrated helps fight fatigue, build up lactic acid and improve your performance.

3 – Exercising with a friend can keep both of you motivated, but you need to choose carefully and make sure that you really feel motivated by them.

4 – Concentrate on your workout. It is only 45 minutes of your day so you must be present. Put your phone down and think about the task ahead.

Admittedly, it still looks small parked next to the rows of high-end vehicles outside his studio.

Chris says he is continuously shocked by the Australian’s love of sports.

‘Here in Perth there are always people running early in the morning or using the outdoor gyms, you would never get that in the UK,’ he said.

Chris had a ticket back to the UK via Asia and Europe all those years ago but is happy with his choice to stay in Australia to continue his career at his own gym.
