Macho gym-bros not your thing? Tired weight-centric measurement? Maybe you’d like your workout to actually be FUN? Fit With Lou is here for badass personal training and joyful nutrition coaching, because you deserve to enjoy these things...and your life, too.Personal Training Nutrition Coaching
Tired of weight-centric measurement as the only marker of success? Rest assured, that isn’t what we do here. While tracking progress toward your goals IS important, we’ll take an individualised - and more effective - approach to measure how far you’ve come.
What if I told you that movement needs to feel good to actually be healthy? Would you stop punishing yourself with workouts you hate? Let's work together to build you a plan around training styles that you actually enjoy so that movement enriches your life, not drains it.
Wait, macho gym bros taking up all the room in the gym aren't your thing? Well, good. Me either. As a coach, I am passionate about making fitness spaces feel accessible and less intimidating so that everybody feels represented and safe to chase their goals.
We’re made to believe that food should be a struggle, but honestly, I think that’s bullshit. That said - it *is* hard to wade through all the Diet Culture messaging alone. Together we'll break down the science of nutrition and figure out exactly what YOU need to eat to thrive.
As a Personal Trainer, I specialize in helping my clients build functional strength so that we can tackle all that life has to offer outside of the gym! I believe that fitness can be a truly joyful experience for everybody, and it all starts with finding out what works for YOU. Let’s work together to find out what you need, learn some new skills, move with greater joy and nail those goals along the way!Personal Training

If you want a personal trainer who is dedicated, loving, funny and does not buy into the diet culture bullshit, Louise is your trainer! Louise helped me tremendously with building a better relationship with working out and my overall body image. She’s honest, pushes you but also respects your physical and mental boundaries, which was a huge deal-breaker for me. I’ve struggled with an eating disorder and working out for me was a way to punish my body and therefore it was always linked to losing weight. Something I really wanted to get rid of. In the six months that I trained with Louise, we did not focus even once on how my body looked or weighed and focused solely on having a good time while moving my body. I even got into olympic weightlifting, which I never knew I liked! In the training, Louise listens really well to your wants and needs and makes sure all the workouts are fun, dynamic and not at all boring or repetitive. No need to doubt, if you want a trainer that will help you raise a big middle finger to all diet culture bullshit and will help you enjoy moving your body in a loving and fun way, Louise is it!
Goal: Find joy in movement
The approach of Fit With Lou really is different from mainstream personal trainers. She makes you feel that you and your fitness goals matter, and that no goal is too crazy - the sky is the limit. Great coach and even better motivator!
Goal: Take my fitness to the next level
Sinds 1,5 jaar ben ik op een missie om mn overall fitness te verbeteren. Dit na 30 jaar nagenoeg niets doen. Met CrossFitten en diëten ben ik een eind gekomen maar die voeding bleef een punt. Crashen, afvallen en dan weer aankomen. Ik was het zo dat! Nu heb ik Lou als voedingscoach en het bevalt me super goed! We hebben samen gekozen voor coaching op basis van het aanleren van nieuwe gewoontes. Geen calorieën tellen, geen 'fout' voedsel: ik mag alles eten wat ik wil. De gewonntes zorgen ervoor dat ik niet overboord ga. Ik ben ook al afgevallen zonger maar 1 moment het gevoel te hebben gehad dat ik iets niet mocht eten. Heerlijk!
Goal: Ditch crash diets
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 fitness 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: Improve my mental health and overall wellbeing
Louise's approach ensures you feel comfortable enough to push yourself outside of your comfort zone. It is obvious she always 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"
Hey, I’m Louise – or Lou for short! I am a lifelong student (read: nerd) of fitness and nutrition and I'm grateful to be able to share what I have learned from this adventure over the years. I moved to The Netherlands from Canada just over 9 years ago where I left a budding career in law behind to do things that make me feel a whole lot more inspired. For me, those things include making the fitness industry a less intimidating space, uncomplicating nutrition and calling out harmful diet-culture bullshit wherever I find it. Along the way, I've found absolute joy in food and movement and I can't wait to help you do the same!
Happy new year, friends. I know it’s just that time of year, but is it me, or has the Diet Industry REALLY turned up the heat on the new-year-grind-for-your-crash-diet crap this time around? They’re out there workin’ hard to sell us the next detox, superfood and 6-weeks to a 6-pack (riiight) program. So, in honour
Ah, the mythical wagon. We’ve all heard it – and probably felt it, too, “I was doing so well, and then I fell off the wagon.” Whether it’s about our diet, exercise routine or another way of taking care of ourselves, the wagon represents the hardline rules we tell ourselves we need to follow to
One of the biggest hurdles in getting motivated to work out, no matter where you do it, is figuring out which exercises to take on once you get there. Luckily, though, with the right information, it’s actually pretty easy to put together an effective, full-body training program. Top priority should be given to functional movements;
Going at this shit alone is hard. If the last couple of years has taught us nothing else, it’s that we need each other, we need our humans around, to really thrive. It’s true in most things – including your nutrition journey. Never mind that it’s just less fun without them; setting up an environment
Stress. While occasionally unavoidable and good for us in certain circumstances, in excess, particularly when it’s chronic, it’s really not. Hot take, right? Okay, not really. In fact, we hear that so much it’s pretty hard not to ‘yeah, yeah’ the warning away. Life is busy, and demands are high. But hear me out on
