Tired of weight-centric measurement? Rest assured that that isn’t what we do here. While tracking progress toward your goals IS important, we’ll take an individualised - and frankly more effective - approach to measure how far you’ve come.
What if I were to tell you that movement needs to feel good in order to be healthy? Physical activity should enrich your life, not drain it. We’ll work together to make a plan around training styles that you actually enjoy - and you’ll see the results!
Macho, hyper-masculine gym bros not your thing? Oh man, me either. I am passionate about making fitness spaces accessible and less intimidating so that everybody feels represented and safe to chase their health goals.

Louise takes the time and puts in the effort to tailor our sessions to my fitness goals and to focus on my areas of weakness that I really want to improve. Louise really challenges me and seems to know my capabilities, I'm learning new exercises and things I wouldn't have done by myself. She really pushes me to my limits.
Goal: Push My Limits
Louise has a great energy that keeps you positive throughout the workout and motivates you straight through the end. Her bullshit-free approach to health and fitness really helps you navigate the unrealistic social media expectations. I recommend her to both newbies to exercise and those with more experience with training.
Goal: Improved Mental Health and Wellbeing
Louise has really helped me take a look at my nutrition and figure out where I can get more out of what I'm eating. Her coaching has helped me change my food habits without feeling deprived, and I feel better and full of energy for it. Massively recommend!
Goal: Have More Energy
Louise's approach ensures you feel comfortable but maintains the professional feel with my training goals always in mind. I'm about to start my fourth session and I can already see and feel the difference in both attitude and body.
Goal: Be a Machine
Heb nu een aantal hele fijne trainingen gehad met Louise en kan haar aan iedereen aanbevelen. Persoonlijk heb ik soms wat meer motivatie nodig omdat ik twijfel aan mijn eigen kunnen. Louise geeft je dat en nog veel meer! Het voelt veilig en vertrouwd met haar maar ze weet je ook tot jouw uiterste te pushen!
Goal: Feel Stronger

You’ve probably tried playing by the rules: external cues of what to eat and when to eat it, learning what is ‘good’ and what is ‘bad’, clean eating, Keto and cleanses. The rulebook is broad and ever-changing because moving targets keep us at once confused and coming back to the (verrry profitable) diet industry for
Picture this: You were doing super well setting up and sticking to a workout routine, and that initially gave you great results. But now, the results have kind of… fizzled – the same workouts that once seemed to work wonders now seem ineffective. What changed? Well, it’s probably a lack of periodization. Let’s dig into
Have you ever received diet advice you knew was sort of…off? Or perhaps got wrangled into trying an only-air-and-bacon summer body meal plan with promises of big change with only a few weeks buy-in? Watch out, there are all kinds of extreme eating plans and celery juice gurus who will sell you a way-too-shiny promise
