Petra is a busy mum of a six-year old daughter, who has found her passion in fitness and active lifestyle after years of working in marketing and customer relations. She used her own experience in personal fitness, nutrition and better lifestyle choices to assist her clients to achieve their fitness goals.
Her aim is to show clients how a little bit of hard work in the gym can make a positive difference in their life, both by feeling fit, and by having a fresh and healthy mind.

She believes that combining weight training with active lifestyle, as well as a well-balanced diet, will bring her clients the results they are looking for. It may not always be easy, but she will help them to get there.
