About Me

Hello :)

My name is Louise, and I'm 24 years old. I live in a little town called Thatcham (about 60miles from London) in the UK. I am a Novice Strongwoman Competitor.

I will be using this blog to share my workouts and progression in the gym, and also how my Strongwoman Competitions go. I will also be sharing my own ideas and advice on workouts/nutrition, and also anything I find interesting.

I have always been quite active. When I was younger I used to be a swimmer. I started to do quite well and won a couple of gold medals at my meets, but then I perforated both of my eardrums and the doctor told me if I were to carry on swimming I could possibly go deaf. Hearing that when you're young is quite scary and it put me off. 

I took part in House Sports at school, netball & hockey (but it didn't really interest me). Through Sixth Form and University I went to the gym but would do the old "cardio for 30-45mins and a few weight machines and abs" workout for females. At least I was doing something though right?

It wasn't until I got my first home with my Boyfriend and joined his gym that my work-outs started to change. I stopped doing my religious "30 mins of cardio" at the beginning of my workout and started to train weights. I started to pay attention to what food I was eating, and how it affected me. From that I have noticed my body composition completely change, my confidence improve, and my overall well-being increased. And yes I still eat chocolate, ice-cream & Burgers ;)

Please get in touch if you have any questions at all relating to anything I post. Always happy to help if I can... louiseletsome@gmail.com
