Trainer. Author. Advocate. Athlete. Coach.
Louise Green is a thought leader in creating a world where every “body” can realize their athletic potential, regardless of their size.
Green has tenaciously dedicated the last decade to disrupting the fitness industry by creating a counter-culture movement where people of all shapes and sizes can feel included. Through her dedication to this movement, she has been called revolutionary. Accolades for her fearless fight have been noted by Self Magazine as one of the “Top Trainers to Follow” and by Women of Influence as one of the “Top Five Women in Canada Boldly Changing the World for Women and Girls.”
Green rocked the fitness section at the bookshelves when she released her ground-breaking book, Big Fit Girl (2017). The book has sold internationally with an overwhelming positive response influencing women everywhere to lace up and get active. Green conducted over 85 media interviews while promoting the book which brought about both positive conversation and pushback; however, Green is unshakable in her position that larger bodies can indeed be fit bodies.
In 2008, Green founded Body Exchange; a fitness program dedicated to the plus-size community and has since coached over a thousand women to unleash their inner athlete and find peace with their bodies. This year she has taken her coaching online to serve a global audience and share her mission and expertise with her signature program: Big Fit Girl: Unleashed.
As a sought-after trainer, speaker and writer, Louise lends her expertise to media, medical professionals and brands who are open to a new paradigm of fitness and health.
Green’s work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, Refinery 29 and Upworthy to name a few. She has been a guest at London’s BBC and at NBC on the Steve Harvey Show representing diversity in athleticism.
Louise is one for the first plus-athletes to be featured in Runner’s World, Canadian Running Magazine, Triathlete Magazine, IMPACT Magazine and Bicycling Magazine.
This tells us her tireless work for better representation is paying off.
Louise currently spends her time coaching women from around the globe, strategizing her second book and training for her first Half Ironman.
