Louise began kickboxing in 2007 as an alternative to running, which she could no longer do due to injury, and found herself hooked after a 10 week course. She joined 5 Elements in 2008, after they introduced fitness kickboxing classes to the schedule. From there, Louise started taking muay thai classes. Here, she wishes to express how much the muay thai, fitness kickboxing and support from the school helped her to cope with life outside of the school, where she was going through a difficult personal time. Louise began teaching Fitness Kickboxing in 2010 and now teaches every Tuesday night and Saturday morning, as well as continuing her muay thai training. Louise has also earned her black muay thai praciat.
