Client Story – Andrea Higgs
This month we’re interviewing Andrea, a regular corehealth Champion who has been attending sessions here for the last eight years.
How did you come about attending corehealth?
I’ve always had back issues and never been interested in sport or exercise. When my father turned 80 he had a hip replacement and spent several weeks in a rehabilitation centre. He was in pretty good shape, but the poor physical state of some of the other patients was the spur for me to walk in the door at Core Health. I knew that I finally needed to start an exercise program that I would commit to for the rest of my life.
What do you enjoy / dread most in your sessions?
I’m not very flexible but I am strong. I enjoy lifting heavy weights and feeling my muscles develop. I’m not keen on cardio – puffing and sweating – but I understand its value. I really appreciate being cared about by the Corehealth staff and interacting with other regular clients. Core Health is an essential part of my miscellaneous collection of things. It keeps my body together so I can actively pursue the things that are meaningful to me.
How did you get into interior design and tell us a little bit about the journey leading up to setting up Olio Interiors?
In 2013 I decided to leave my career in management and study Interior Design. It was a big leap of faith, but I believe that the pursuit of whatever ‘turns you on’ is an essential part of a satisfied life. For me, Interior Design is a perfect combination of problem solving and research, aesthetics and joy, individual and social psychology.
This year I launched my own Interior Design business called OLIO Interiors. OLIO means ‘a miscellaneous collection of things’. It describes both the personal, layered interiors I love and the way I choose to live my life.
Andrea will be giving a fun and informative Interior Design presentation at corehealth on Thursday May 18th. Learn tips and tricks to create a home you love! You can also check out her beautiful designs and learn more at www.oliointeriors.com.au

We just love hearing all about our clients successes and moving experiences and we are proud to have a whole clinic full of a diverse range of people with amazing talents. This month at corehealth we are hosting a night for two of our beloved clients to give a talk/presentation on their own partyciular knowledges/passions.
Alan was previously featured as our February Regular Champion and we quickly learned he was not only a legendary war hero but a man with extensive knowledge and appreciation for the fighting men of this country and what it means to be one. He was only 13 years of age when he joined the Navy and served in the Australian Navy for most of his adult life all around the world including the Vitetnam War before he was promoted to Commander of a Daring class Destroyer in 1973. Alan will be giving a talk about ANZAC Day and Rememberance Day; explaining the history behind each one and the difference between both of the days and the meanings behind them. ANZAC DAY is largerly celebrated in Australia and is pushed much more in society then Rememberance Day which actually celebrates all soldiers, but why is this?
Andrea is featured as this month’s Regular Champion so you already know all about her! Andrea Higgs is the Creative Director at OLIO Interior and will be sharing interior design secrets and practical tips to help you create your best home. Andrea brings a wonderful mix of intuition, creative energy and practical wisdom to every client interaction. She will be giving a presentation/sharing unique tips and tricks to designing the interior of your own home by applying skills in education and counselling. Andrea believes that when it comes to decorating your home, warm outlasts cool and it is essential to create positive connnections. Homes are places of warmth and love and what is cool and trendy fades with time. We need to embrace the colours of our life and create energy within our home, telling a story through every object which in return surrounds ourselevs with memories and warmth.
Make sure that you RSVP to this event by May 16th as there will be nibbles and drinks provided, you won’t want to miss out on your oppurtunity to join in on this exciting night!
