The Founders

Lee Mullins & Hani Farsi

The story of Workshop is about more than just one person. It’s the story of a dedicated partnership and a commitment to a luxury, new global health experience. 

Hani Farsi is a committed philanthropist and successful entrepreneur in the entertainment and hospitality industries. Lee Mullins is a personal trainer and one of the most sought after health professionals in the world. The two first began training together in 2010, and in 2014 they decided to intertwine their expertise to create something different in the fitness landscape; it was from this that Workshop was born.

The duo initially started their enterprise in London’s Knightsbridge, with their first gymnasium appearing in residency within the prestigious Bulgari Hotel. Following a number of accolades they expanded their partnership with the luxury group, launching their second location in the Bulgari Hotel, Milan in 2016. 

Thanks to the instant success of their brand, this relationship has continued to grow, with further outposts in Bali, Dubai, Beijing and Shanghai.

Today, Workshop is a global brand and one of the fastest growing luxury health and lifestyle companies in the world. It is set to expand its repertoire with future locations in Paris, Moscow and Tokyo opening within the next five years.

Retreats, Pop-ups and Travel

From the beginning we understood that not everyone could get to one of our training facilities. Armed with this knowledge, we decided to take Workshop on the road and as a result, our team of performance specialists travel around the world to lead training and wellness retreats at some of the most luxurious resorts on the planet. Our specialist Pop-Up Gyms also appear at some of the most glamorous events in the global calendar, including the world-renowned Cannes Film Festival. For those looking to be fully immersed in our unique methodology, no matter your schedule or time zone, our performance specialists are available to travel to you wherever you are.

Facility Design

One of our fastest growing services, facility and gym design is available for private residences, training facilities, health clubs and hotels. Whether it’s a brand new design or remodelling an existing space, our expert team are able to design and manage every aspect right up to the final fit, working closely with architects and owners throughout every stage to ensure a seamless experience.

Facility Management

Our on-site management service is what we are renowned for, and includes designing facilities, recruiting and educating coaches, pre and post opening training, as well as on-going management of the facility. Whether you have a private residence, high performance training space, health club or a hotel, our expertise in facility management will ensure your vision is brought vividly to life.


Our private mentorship programme is an introduction to the Workshop training system that is applied to all of our clients around the world. We also offer customised education programmes for coaches, gyms and organisations that are completely bespoke to your specific needs and area of interest.

Nutritional Supplements

In 2017 we partnered with Designs for Health to launch our all-natural, science-based line of Workshop Nutritional Supplements. This means that the same nutritional solutions that we use daily in every clients’ programmes are now available online and at discerning global retailers. All of our products are designed to be adapted to suit any lifestyle, and are vegan and vegetarian friendly, and free from gluten and artificial ingredients.
