When Michael Mullett is not busy daydreaming about his days as a youth in a small-town in Tasmania, the Australian Island just south of the mainland, he is working in his roll as Health and Fitness Manager of the Corniche Club.
A mainstay and constant of the club for the last 7 years, he cites a life-long love for health and fitness as an easy lead-in for his eventual job in the same field; he loves fitness so much that he wanted to share that same fanatic zeal with others. As a trainer, he believes that it is normally a persons lack of belief in themselves and willingness to take ownership of their lives that can be a their biggest detriment to attaining their personal goals. A natural risk taker that took this, his first international position, simply for the risk of trying something new, he likes to balance his time with his loves of music, travel, learning the guitar, and daydreaming about his potential for skydiving. With a personal motto of “you only live once, so follow your dreams” we catch up with him in time to find out that his is to eventually retire with a home in the mountains in his native homeland; a simple desire perhaps for a man driven by a want to be the best version of himself that he can be, while simultaneously helping others to do the same.
