Mel has created a series of financially successful businesses, an accomplishment in itself since she was one of the very first female owners in the fitness industry in Australia, and then used that success to become a business coach and mentor to hundreds of other owners throughout her country. There are many talented women in this industry today, but few with the longevity and experience of Mel Tempest. There are also few people who will ever be considered for a scholarship as worthy and deserving as this woman. She has dedicated her life to fitness and the industry and world around her is better because of her dedication and love for the business and people in it.

Mel is a shining light in the Australian Fitness Industry. She is unashamedly passionate about changing things for the better, practices what she preaches and expects no more from anyone than she would give herself. I'm grateful for her honesty and openness. I don't always hear what I want to hear, but it's often what I needed to hear. Mel is very generous with her time and highly recommended as 'go to' expert on running a successful fitness business.
