    Went in person to talk to Wade and he was really friendly! It's been a while since I've worked out and he talked me through everything and set me up with my trainer within a few days. Michelle is wonderful and I've already learned a lot and made progress in the few weeks I've been working with her. Overall the atmosphere is great and so are the people.

    Thank you Sarah for the kind words & we are so glad your part of our Exclusive Fitness Family!

    After working out for 3 months on my own and not seeing results, I decided to elicit help from a professional. I am excited to achieve my fitness goals with the help of Wade at Exclusive Fitness. Wade's enthusiasm and knowledge make working out enjoyable and I am thrilled to have his guidance with nutrition. Hello bikini bod

    What an amazing place! I've never felt this comfortable at a gym...ever! I had my first session with my trainer and it went great! If you're looking for a place that feels welcoming this is the place to be!

    Great experience at Exclusive Fitness
    I've been working out 3 times a week with a personal trainer (Brooke - she's awesome) at Exclusive Fitness for about 5 weeks now. All the staff at the gym is professional and knowledgable and will go out of their way to help you. I'm not in the greatest shape, but I don't feel uncomfortable in this gym - there are people of all shapes and sizes with the common of interest of being healthier. Brooke is a great personal trainer - I'm definitely considerably stronger than I was 5 weeks ago and I'm starting to notice some positive changes in my body. She's positive and encouraging and pushes me to try my hardest. I'd highly recommend checking out Exclusive Fitness if you're in the market for a great gym and/or a personal trainer!

    I hired Wade Wilburn at Exclusive Fitness to do personal training as i prepare for a December fitness competition. He is an incredibly experienced coach who has not only set a specific plan of nutritional and physical training into motion with me, but also encouraging each step out the journey. I trust the process that he has designed specifically for my goals.

    Initial response from Wade was within 20 or 30 minutes of my posting a request. Made me feel like he genuinely wanted my business. I went for an initial consult with Shannon and was very pleased with his professionalism and knowledge. He paired me with Michelle as my personal trainer and I couldn't be more pleased. She knows her stuff and challenges me at every workout, while still keeping my current fitness level and my ultimate goal in mind. Best investment I've made in myself in a very long time!

    I am so happy I chose Exclusive Fitness! Wade was awesome and so helpful. Within minutes of putting my information on Thumbtack, Wade set me up with a trainer and some free trials. I am now training with Dwight and I absolutely love it. Exclusive Fitness is a nice facility and all of the people are SO friendly! I would recommend this gym/ it's personal trainers to anyone!

    My first thought after researching Exclusive Fitness (using Thumbtack and Google) was that the owner must have had his cronies bombard the Internet with positive reviews in exchange for a kickback on membership fees. After training with Wade for the last three months, I have to admit that I was completely wrong. I moved to the Knoxville area around three months ago and walked into Exclusive Fitness as a perfect stranger. Wade was the first person I met, as he makes a point to welcome each new face personally. Since then, Wade has helped me shape my goal, matched my commitment, and provided me with a wealth of knowledge backed by years of experience. Wade has made time for me after working a fourteen-hour day, opened up the gym early for me on weekends, and even trained with me on St. Patrick’s Day and Easter Sunday. As far as results are concerned, I have had better results in the last three months than nearly a decade of military PT and P90X. I have gained ten pounds of muscle and lowered my body fat by two percent. I had two blood tests in the last three months that showed lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, healthy level of liver enzyme production, and no illegal drug use. As an introvert, the most important aspect of Exclusive Fitness for me was the atmosphere. I had never had a gym membership or used a personal trainer previously, so I half expected Wade to be the stereotypical, condescending trainer in a way-too-tight-T-shirt. Give Wade five minutes of your time and you will see that he is more of a teacher than a trainer.

    Had my first workout yesterday and loved the trainer, the place and the people! The right place to start my journey back from an injury.
  • Conesia W. Mar 18, 2015
    I started training at Exclusive Fitness with Wade because I wanted to "tone up" for my 40th birthday. Wade Wilburn is one of the most knowledgeable and dedicated trainers I have worked with. Wade sets a good example and is an inspiration to all. Fitness is a passion for this man and it's INFECTUOUS. He does not use a cookie cutter approach where a trainer uses the same regimen and routine for all there clients. He listens and pays attention to your goals. After working with Wade, I plan to compete in my first NPC competition in August 2015. Conesia Watson (PC)

    Great guy and even better trainer. I have been involved with fitness for years and he is definitely one of the most knowledgeable and dedicated guys I have encountered. He helped me achieve a whole new level of fitness.
  • Suanne C. Mar 18, 2015
    Exclusive Fitness, located in Rocky Hill Center, offers a personal fitness facility with exceptional trainers, equipment, & a friendly atmosphere. I've never felt comfortable in those large gyms, but love Exclusive Fitness. It is a small gym with a big heart! I train with Wade Wilburn, who owns EF, & heads up a wonderful personal trainer staff. He & all the trainers meet each client where they are & individualize their training to meet your fitness needs & goals.
  • Sam P. Mar 14, 2015
    Wade is a great person and the most knowledgeable trainer I have had he privilege of working with. He has many years of experience and regardless of your goal he will be there to motivate you!
  • Gary S. Mar 12, 2015
    Wade is an excellent trainer who recently has taken on the ownership of Exclusive Fitness. Wade is working hard to update and make improvements to the gym and it shows. Exclusive Fitness is a small but wonderful place to work out without the intimidation factor of the big box gyms.
  • David G. Mar 12, 2015
    Very knowledge and experienced. Pleasure to work with and be around. Constantly motivating to new heights.
  • Greg B. Mar 12, 2015
    Absolutely the friendliest and most knowledgeable staff I have been around in my 20 years of gym membership, also the hours are great. Location. And PRICE! 5 STARS +++
  • Michael B. Mar 12, 2015
    He is the ultimate motivator, encouraging you but not iverwhelming. A great fund of knowledge. Great guy.
  • Hank B. Mar 12, 2015
    Wade, is an outstanding trainer. He managed to put enough muscle on me to move me to the next coat size while keeping my waist as slim or slimmer than it had been. The man knows his stuff! Hank Bahr

    Out of all the gyms I've ever been in, Exclusive Fitness is the best. Filled with Knoxville's best trainers, there couldn't be a better, cleaner, more professional gym in town. I'd rank it a 15 on a scale of 1-10. And the equipment is top-notch! Did I mention the spin classes they offer? See what I mean?

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We have all kinds of different price structures to fit your budget and help you achieve your fitness goals.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We have them talk with our Fitness Director to see what their needs, wants and goals are & to see whether they prefer a female or male trainer. Once that is learned we map out their journey for them.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Always are continuing CEU's. Knowledge is POWER!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I was 14, I trained all my friends in my parents garage and fell in love with teaching others about fitness.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The majority of our clients sign up with less than 30 pounds to loose and simply want to eat better, get in shape and remain in shape. We work with children and we also have several 90 year old clients we train and mentor.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Helping Ted who is 72 years old rehabilitate from a stroke, who made a full recovery!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Certifications and CPR are a MUST; however, make sure they can APPLY what they have learned. I've seen a lot of BIG degree's, but weren't able to convey what they had learned in a fun and non-degrading way.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How COMMITTED are you? How DISCIPLINED are you? How DETERMINED are you?
