Hi Petra! Thanks for welcoming us into your beautiful space. For those who don’t know, let us know a bit about yourself + Core Wellness.
"Hi! Thanks for having me. I'm truly driven by the mission of helping individuals discover their path to wellness. My start-up business, Core Wellness, is nestled in the heart of Hamilton. We offer a haven where clients can break through the typical barriers of the health and fitness world.
From Reformer Pilates to Mat Pilates and even indulgent Wellness sessions featuring sauna, steam room, and cold plunge experiences, we cater to a diverse range of needs. My offerings extend beyond the physical, with specialised services including Corporate Wellness and tailored programs for pre/postnatal exercise movement. Every session is made to address specific goals, whether it's recovering from an injury, building strength, enhancing mobility, or navigating the journey of pregnancy. It is something I have always wanted to do and am truly passionate about - so why not make a career out of it?"
What does wellness mean to you, and how does it impact your everyday life?
"Wellness, to me, is an ever-evolving concept, tailored to meet the changing needs of my body and mind. It encompasses filling my cup mentally, physically, and socially, recognising that it holds a different meaning for each person. What once worked for movement may not serve me now, as humans constantly evolve. Therefore, it's vital that our physical activity and movement adapt accordingly. Recognising what brings joy, boosts endorphins and serotonin, and leaves us feeling motivated and inspired rather than drained is so important. Incorporating a sprinkle of wellness throughout the day is the ultimate key to fulfilment!”
How would you describe your fashion?
"I live in activewear but take up any opportunity to dress up, favouring neutral tones with a hint of colour in each outfit. My obsession with accessories—be it bags, jewellery, or belts—is non-negotiable, as they effortlessly elevate any look. I have a very classic, structured way of dressing - it always gives business meetings at 5, dinner and drinks at 6."
