Find out about This Extra Life

This Extra Life was founded in January 2020 by me, Louise O’Boyle, a fitness fanatic on a mission to lose fat.

After spending many years following so called ‘gurus’ and the occasional fad diet, ultimately resulting in an unhealthy cycle of yo-yo dieting or complete failure to drop the extra pounds, I decided to grab my health goals by the reins.

I came to the conclusion that the methods I had tried before simply did not work, no matter how promising the plethora of before and after photos looked.

Undertaking The Body Coach 90 Day Plan and later The Body Coach Graduate Plan, I realised that the only way to really achieve my health and fitness goals was to turn my approach and change my mindset. I knuckled down and committed to a regime of healthy eating and consistent exercise to drop a staggering 40lbs of fat and in the process, I gained a whole lot of life.

About This Extra Life

Feeling happy, healthy and more confident than ever before, I started This Extra Life to share tried and tested information to help women the world over to improve their fitness, lead a healthy lifestyle and to motivate them to achieve their health and fitness goals.

Everybody is different but we all share one common goal; to be the best versions of ourselves! This is the ethos of This Extra Life.

During my fitness journey, I scoured the internet looking for answers to the many common questions I had. The problem was that this could take hours to find the right resources and answers to my questions. More often than not, I had to navigate past the same ‘quick fixes’ that didn’t work in the first place. This certainly was not time-efficient or conducive to a busy, active life.

Birth of This Extra Life

About this extra life

I decided that one online resource that held all the accurate answers would be the perfect solution. It would save time for busy women the world over and get to the nitty-gritty details of some of the most important questions women typically have when looking to improve their health and fitness. Most importantly, such a resource would help to make a health and fitness goal more sustainable in the long term for many women.

The idea was there, but to do this effectively, I knew she needed a platform to reach far and wide. Therefore, This Extra Life was born.

A celebration of health, fitness, delicious recipes and important nutritional information all in one place.
