Hi! I'm Louise, award-winning women's holistic health, fitness & performance expert, American College of Sports Medicine Practitioner of the Year 2023, published researcher, expert for media like Runner's World & Today Show + host of the top podcast Maximizing Fitness, Physique & Running Through Perimenopause. After a tough journey designing breakthroughs to save my own health, physique & running, it's my mission to ensure you don't have to go through the same hell I did & can instead mitigate hormone decline, ditch symptoms fast & maximize your time, energy & RESULTS!

Does this sound like you?

You feel stuck with hormone havoc like fatigue, brain fog, weight gain despite eating well, bloating, energy crashes, sluggish workouts or running, injuries &/or lack of results looking lean & toned.

You refuse to accept "inevitable" health & fitness decline as your story: You want mental clarity, to feel energized & vibrant every day. You want results that reflect how hard you work to look fit or run, setting a strong example for your kids. You want a metabolism, libido & mood that's on fire so you can be present in your marriage, confidently embrace your beautiful body & skin that glows!

You're trying to take action, but nothing is working well. Your hope is fading & you know you can't stand another day living like this. This isn't you!

You don't want methods that don't align with your values like diets & macros: You want to protect your health & metabolism, not destroy it! You don't have time to stare at your phone & you clearly know when it comes to how these changing hormones are impacting your body it's NOT as simple as "calories in calories out" or you'd be fit as hell given you'd tried it all! You want a better way.

You don't accept "This is just aging, nothing you can do": You want knowledge to PREVENT all these miserable symptoms women are told to "deal with" using a flexible & balanced wellness lifestyle.

When others suggest more supplements or meds you want to scream: You want your dedication to your healthy lifestyle to address ACTUAL root causes. You think, "No black cohosh, tell me WHY my body gets hot flashes & how to PREVENT them." or "Cortisol is high but tell me HOW I MITIGATE it!"

You're Type A & don't want a bandaid fix. You need simple, clear & effective answers that drive lifelong success. If you have a checklist & a game plan that explains logic, consider it done!

Life is stressful with work, aging parents & now your health & fitness suffering: You want exact steps to keep feeling your best simple, focused & results-driven. You need SUSTAINABLE ease, as giving the world your best is a part of who you are.

EVERY women needs this program! As a busy Physician, it looked at the whole picture of my goals & life, with Louise doing something for women that has never been done before. At 51, I was fatigued & slowing down. Learning female-specific nutrition, wellness, strength & run plans changed EVERYTHING. I'm running times I haven't seen since my 30s & hitting PRs! My energy no longer crashes at work & I can focus. I'm running up hills with ease, with hip & shoulder pain I was stuck with for years gone! The 1:1 coaching & Academy resources are efficient & effective, empowering you with comprehensive knowledge to maximize your success, whether you want to get stronger, look more fit or feel amazing again. Running is my happy place & now I can now do it for life!

Ann, Award-Winning Doctor

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 & recovery hacks!

Jen, Former U.S. Olympian

As an educator, I appreciate how well presented, practical & concise everything in this program is! For the first time, I feel heard as a female, getting detailed support when I need it. At month 2 my body is finally dropping weight for the first time in years, sleep is vastly improved, my period cramps are surprisingly mild, mood swings are mitigated, mental clarity is back & blood sugar concerns I'd had for years are gone. I love that I can eat a meal out without guilt, knowing how to tune into my body's needs & break free from a diet mindset!

Sarah, Teacher & Busy Mom

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, I realized how much female-specific nutrition & training changes EVERYTHING!

Cathy, Mental Health Counselor 

When I joined, I thought it was a long shot, but I was ready to fight to feel like myself again. In 2 weeks I lost weight, went from 5 hours of terrible sleep to sleeping like a baby & no longer had mood swings. My muscle definition improves weekly & heavy periods eased without an ablation or medication! Everything is so practical that, for the first time ever, I'm confident this is sustainable.

Charlotte, Nurse & Mom to 4

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

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 didn't learn this in med school! Everything is easy-to-follow, sharing exactly how to be energized & injury-free at any age! At an age where I'm supposed to be watching my body break down, I'm watching it get stronger! I highly recommend & refer out to Badass Breakthrough Academy for any ambitious active female who wants optimal health, longevity, fitness or to run strong for life!

Nancy, Sports Med Doctor

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 10 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.
