World Fitness Cartel is more than just a gym, it’s a community of awesome people working together to achieve greatness. Ever been to a gym where no one talks to you, the staff don’t know your name and it all feels very transactional? Well we are the polar opposite.

You can expect to be greeted by our amazing team, and coached by people who actually care about you and your development. We train hard together but also socialise together with many social events, competitions and heaps more happening throughout the year.

About the Founder

In 2015 professional fighter and Australian full contact champion Dwayne Harris founded World Fitness Cartel. Dwayne put together the best martial arts programs specialising in Muay Thai, and coupled them with state of the art strength and conditioning facilities for the people of Melbourne.

His vision was to remove all the fear and stigma that sometimes prevents people from starting martial arts and gaining the many benefits of the training, by offering the most unique and innovative introduction to Muay Thai.

Enter ‘Muay Thai Bootcamps®’

Dwayne designed it for absolute beginners, 100% safe, fun and it comes with a ‘no egos or heroes’ policy! The program is delivered to everyday people wanting to try Muay Thai, build confidence and get fit. Now 6 years running, Muay Thai Bootcamps® is Australia’s #1 beginners Muay Thai program with over 1000 students completing the program each year!

In 2015 when Dwayne first put pen to paper he wrote a mission for WFC which remains strong and true to this day…

Our mission is to make a positive impact on as many lives as possible through the disciplines of our martial arts programs; and to facilitate improved health and fitness through our unique training facilities.

Our team are experts in their fields and will provide exceptional service throughout every interaction, making our members feel valued and truly a part of the WFC community.

If you’re looking for a gym that puts it’s people first,
somewhere that welcomes you and helps you be the best version of yourself,
