At we often feature wonderful transformations and share amazing stories of success. Unfortunately, before I created MP there was little to no support for the people responsible - the Trainers, the Transformation Specialists themselves.

As a result, many Personal Trainers feel like an Island - alone in the extensive fitness industry ocean.

As a Trainer myself, I know that's how I felt - I did courses, worked hard, had good clients but I was alone in this massive growing industry. I never had any support or proactive interaction with other trainers. No one to learn and develop with.

As a result I stagnated, burned out and walked away after many years in the business.

And I'm sure I'm not alone on this one. Latest stats from the PT industry certification organizations show clearly the average career span of a Personal Trainer is less than 3 years. It's not even 12 months. In fact, the average 'life span' of a PT in Australia, is 3 months.

Yep, that's not a typo... the average 'career' of a Personal Trainer in Australia, lasts 3 months.

Because of this painful stat, Personal Training has never really been viewed as a legitimate career path.

I wanted to change all that when I created MP.

Sure, MP is all about providing people with a life-changing transformation, but let's face it, if the Professional has a poor business structure and struggling for consistent cash flow, they work such long hours they never see their family, the Professional won't remain for very long in the industry they love.

Mel was an MP Trainer of the Year 2013 and MP Entrepreneur of the Year award in 2015!

Here's Mel's entry.

"I believe I have accomplished so much on my OWN and at a young age.

Mel is a successful MP Specialist!

At the end of 2013, I was awarded as one of 6 MP trainers of the year. It was the end of the first year the Dr Paul Cribb offered level 4. When I signed up for MP Level 4 I had just bought my first house – purchased from what I had learned in MP Level 1,2 and 3 Certifications!

At the time I thought 2013 was going to be a struggle with money. However, by the end of the year, I had $30,000 saved. I am now in a great position: I have a thriving business with savings and minimal overheads. 

I have travelled and attended all of the amazing MP Level 4 Certification weekends; The MP Corporate Training (Sydney), Advanced Kinesiology (Melbourne) & Advanced Nutrition (Brisbane). After an incredible MP Corporate Weekend (Cribby books an entire resort in the best part of Sydney & pays for everything for the entire weekend!!) I secured and delivered an MP Corporate program to Porter Davis Homes directly after.

Before going into 2013, I had just bought my first house at 25 and had only been in business for two years. I was operating out of a commercial gym, Goodlife, with another 30 trainers.

Since that year, I spent another 2 years building up my F.I.R.E, I.C.E and Transformation program out of the commercial gym. This allowed me to keep my overheads low and enabled me to keep a lot of the money I was making. I enjoyed a lot of time travelling to various countries for leisure and for work and always came home with a business still thriving.

I also had the opportunity to deliver corporate programs to big companies.

I left the commercial gym in 2015 to go travelling for half a year, where I spent a lot of my time training with Olympians in Miami. Whilst overseas I continued to work with my clients via the MP online CMS.

Upon returning home in December 2015, I was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year at the MP Gala awards evening. And in 2016 I turned my lounge room into a gym, until it was time to start my own studio with my partner in August 2016, Imani Tribe. 

I believe I am a very positive person and while I may not have one aspect that in my business that really stands out above the rest but I believe my success is due to developing a very solid foundation in all MP Products and systems FIRE, LPS, MP Corporate, My new MP website complete with Systemized MP On-line Coaching.
Working part time allows me to plan and promote myself - I have completed presentations, updated my website & email, received press in a national magazine (Women’s Health and Fitness), was filmed for the Women’s Health and Fitness online television – they quoted me on FIRE and ICE!! 

These accomplishments may not seem much when compared to other more experienced MP Level 4 Trainers but I have managed to do all this utilizing the MP systems in a commercial gym and with minimal help. I have wonderful support & developed amazing friendships with other MP Trainers, I even get messages from other saying they are inspired by me!!

My focus is to now build our Imani Tribe with people from all over the world who want to achieve the health, confidence and body shape that they have always craved

The MP system has evolved so much in the last 5-6 years. The amazing thing is the messages and science are still the same but the people in MP have taken this incredible system and applied it in the real world evolving this program into the best in the world. Not only is it changing lives, it has given me some of the most amazing opportunities which i would not have had without it.

My FIVE tips for aspiring MP trainers are:

1. The quicker you make a mistake the quicker you will learn and then succeed. There may be times that you feel like you are failing but if you choose to view it as a lesson and adapt quickly you haven’t failed, you have taken action, you have learnt what works and what doesn’t work and now you are ready to work smarter.

2. You must have a dream. If you don’t dream, it’s over. A dream is why you are in business. I once read from a wise man, humans produce everything twice, first in our mind and then we physically do it.

3. Learn how to hold your nerve when things aren’t going your way. There are a lot of things in business that take time to grow/ develop/ nurture. When things seem slow, impossible, stay calm and focused.

4. Stand tall and own your story and who you are. That is your super power and it will be the only way that you will attract the right clients. There is always someone who we can help but only when we are owning who we are and our own lives can we truly help. Be inspired by other trainers but never compare or try and be like anyone else.

5. Act with integrity, as if you are being filmed 24/7. Everything you do you must be accountable to for and you must be willing to take responsibility for everything that happens in your life."
