Your Coach

Hi, I’m Louise – or Lou for short! I am a lifelong student (read: nerd) of fitness and nutrition and I'm here to share what I have gained from this adventure over the years. I moved to Haarlem from Canada just over 6 years ago where I left a budding career in law behind to do things that make me feel a whole lot more inspired.

I've found absolute joy in food and movement and want the same for you!

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

Periodization: What It Is and Why You Need It

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
