More than likely it can be done. Usually the goal is to migrate from hardware to virtual rather than what you are attempting. In my experience it is best to use a software imaging solution for this kind of Job as there is no way that I know of to convert a vmware data file to any kind of disk image. The paid versions of Macrium Reflect work wonders in redeploying to different hardware. Although the server version, which you would need, is rather expensive.

There are many software products which can perform a V2P, see my EE Article for software products:-

HOW TO:  P2V, V2V for FREE - VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 5.1

Acronis, have a product with a Universal Restore option, you would be able to Clone your VMware Workstation VM, and convert to a PC.

another homebrew option exists which is free, which we used to use called Ultimate P2V

see here

it contains the plugin, to add storage control drivers to your Workstation image for your physical computer.
