A New Success Metric

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.

Joyful Fitness

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.

Inclusive, Safe Space

Bullshit-Free Nutrition Coaching

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.

    Lou, Fit With Lou

    Your Coach

    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!

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

    How to Design the Perfect Training Session

    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;

    Is community the missing piece of your nutrition journey?

    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

    How to stop stress from sabotaging your nutrition

    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
