Our program is designed unique to your goals, body's needs & lifestyle to drive lifelong success: 

I didn't learn this in med school! Everything is so easy-to-follow. At an age where I'm supposed to be watching my body break down, I'm watching it get stronger! I look more fit & am more energized during my long & busy work days. I didn't think it was possible to PR my marathon in my 50s & not need Advil afterwards, but I now know how to train & fuel WITH my female body! I highly recommend, trust & refer out to Badass Breakthrough Academy for any active female who wants optimal health, longevity, fitness or to run strong for life!

Nancy, Sports Med Doctor

When I joined, I thought it was a long shot, but I was ready to fight to feel like myself again. I didn't want perimenopause to mean I have to lay down & die! In 2 weeks I lost weight, went from 5 hours of terrible sleep to sleeping like a baby & no longer had mood swings. My libido is back, my muscle definition improves weekly & heavy periods eased without an ablation or medication! Everything is so kept practical that, for the first time ever, I'm confident this is sustainable.

Charlotte, Nurse & Mom to 4

In my late 30s I was feeling fat & slow, like I was doing all the right things & it shouldn't be this hard! I lost 17 pounds, learned how to listen to my body & lean out without tedious tracking. Louise is a very response coach, creates resources as you need them & has amazing mindset, nutrition, fat loss & recovery hacks that fit my busy life!

Jen, Former Sailing Olympian

I was really discouraged, feeling like running was taking everything from me rather than fulfilling me. I have immense gratitude for the practical coaching, videos & handouts that explain everything. I no longer have headaches, struggle with psoriasis or lethargy! I understand why I bloat, why I get headaches & know how to keep inflammation low. I feel stronger every day & I actually look forward to running again! It took only weeks in this program to get rid of chronic pain & issues in my hip vs. years of PT that left me frustrated. Months later, I ran a 5K at a pace I hadn't seen in YEARS! When I joined I wanted to find my strength again & figure out how to handle this changing body. This program helped me do that & so much more. I feel like a whole new woman - thank you, thank you!

Cara, Busy Mom & CEO

I went from terrible hot flashes, cravings, considering a hysterectomy & HRT to my strongest yet. I joined this program for myself, but when my husband & kids commented how fit I look & asked to learn the nutrition strategies I was, I realized how much female-specific nutrition & training changes EVERYTHING! Now, we're all getting healthier, more fit & stronger together. The Breaking Through Wellness ripple effect is priceless!

Cathy, Mental Health Counselor 

EVERY women needs this program! As a busy doctor, it looked at the whole picture of my life: At 51, I was fatigued & slowing down. Getting simple female-specific nutrition, wellness, strength & run plans changed EVERYTHING. I am the most strong I have ever been while hitting PRs! My energy no longer crashes at work & I can focus again. I'm running up hills with ease & my body looks the most toned it ever has. Hip & shoulder pain I was stuck with for years is gone & my body recovers so much better! The Academy is efficient & effective, empowering you with comprehensive knowledge to look fit & feel amazing. Running is my happy place & now I can now do it for life!

Ann, Sports Med Physician

Highly recommend! Despite working in the medical field for years & feeling like I knew a lot about my health, eating well, weight loss & strength training, I'm blown away by my experience! I went off HRT within 2 months & threw away most supplements. Acne my Dermatologist couldn't help is gone. I love that I know how to target specific areas of my body with strength training & have sustainable fat loss plans that are simple & easily modifiable without feeling restricted. I'm SO grateful to no longer be slowing down, feeling aches & pain when I run, juggling diets or perimenopause "solutions." As my understanding of my body grows deeper & is kept simple to fit my busy life, I'm proud to be creating ease in feeling, looking & running my best for life!

Melissa, Health Professional

Thank you for giving me my wife back. I couldn't stand watching her wake up at 4:30, do endless Peloton, diet, feel miserable with bloating & poor sleep. She's finally seeing results that reflect how hard she works to take care of herself & fueling her body to perform. I've lost weight & improved fitness with your tips, too! Game changers! To say this program paid for itself is an understatement. Even our kids are learning more of the right timing & types of food. It's made such a difference!

A Client's Husband :)


I started working with Louise to unlock my ultra running potential by dialing in nutrition & fitness to support energy, gut health & perimenopause. I learned way more than expected & implementing suggestions was manageable. Louise has a style that makes unlocking potential less daunting & more exciting because results are seen & felt in days & weeks, not months. I now recover fast & accomplished my goal to go from middle to the front of the pack. I'm so glad we worked together!

Heather, Mom of 3, Business Owner

At age 32 I was near rock bottom with my hormone & gut health! I had rapid belly fat gain, intense night sweats, a hamstring injury that wouldn't quit, increased anxiety, depression & my running was diminishing. I thought I was doing everything right & didn't want to accept it was "just age." Within 1 month, I got rid of gut inflammation & my body was processing nutrition like it's supposed to. At 4 months, most hormonal issues stopped. After getting back to a healthy baseline, I lost 12 lbs. (most of it belly fat!) while building muscle & feel SO MUCH better! Reducing inflammation was finally what allowed my body to recover from an 18-month injury. Advice tailored to my activity level & symptoms was definitely the game-changer, but I got a lot out of the balanced whole foods approach, masterclasses & coached fat loss program! Now, I know how to continue to lose fat, lean out, improve my running & feel my best.
