Ready to ditch confusing information & unlock your best health, fitness or running?
Hi! I'm Louise, coach to women who greatly value their health & fitness, seeking knowledge to feel, look or run their best despite changing hormones & without a lifetime of meds, diets, macro tracking, supplements or PT!
Why the heck has no one ever stopped to teach us that our female body is fierce?! My journey defying odds to break through my own health & hormone challenges led me to relentlessly study, research & ultimately become a leading health, fitness & performance expert. Now, it's my mission to empower everyday women to unlock their body's badass ability to do great things by 1. Protecting your health, energy & hormones using whole foods & a smart lifestyle without giving up coffee, alcohol or foods you love 2. Understanding how to maximize fitness &/or longevity in running by working with your changing female body.
Ready to ditch solutions everyone tells us we "need" & instead learn simple & sustainable ways to work with YOUR body that fit YOUR life? I invite you to explore my website & learn more!Learn About Badass Breakthrough Academy

Badass Breakthrough Academy is an unmatched coaching experience!

Lori, from overwhelm & burnout to marathon PR & first ultra at 47!
Working with Louise replaced my trainer, run coach, dry needling & nutritionist! I saw better results after 1 strength plan than YEARS of specialized PT. My PTs called to see where I was & I proudly said, "I'm good now, thank you!"
Sarah, from battling non-stop injuries back to racing with ease!
What started as wanting to lose weight turned into SO much more! I'm present to my body's needs, what I want out of life AND I lost the pregnant-looking belly I've had for 16 years!
