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 here to share what I have learned from this adventure over the years. I moved to Haarlem from Canada just over 8 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. I've found absolute joy in food and movement and I can't wait to help you do the same!

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;

Your diet won’t work. Here’s why.

We know by now that diets don’t work. I mean…we do know that, right? We’ve tried, they’ve failed, and we’ve tried again. There is a new ‘best way of eating’ every time we turn around, so we can keep trying forever… you’d think we’d be dieting pros by now. Some may last a little longer
