Louisa Drake is a force to be reckoned with. A fitness expert, business founder and a serious source of lifestyle inspo, Louisa recently launched LDM, a fitness and lifestyle brand built on the principles of her own inclusive training method and her no-nonsense approach to health and wellness.   

We caught up with her to find out more about LDM, her motivations and of course, her style both in and out of the studio…   

So how does your method work? How can LDM sessions influence your lifestyle?  

At LDM we focus on body confidence and effective training techniques that educate clients on what their individual bodies need. My Method offers a host of fitness disciplines – cardio, conditioning, resistance and stretch – to keep the mind and body guessing and strengthen the muscles you use daily.   

Our whole approach is to encourage confidence, so the Fitzrovia and Muswell Hill studios are a welcoming space where our instructors will calmly guide you through a class, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and well worked, but never worked up and stressed.  

Who can take part in LDM classes?  

LDM classes are accessible to anyone, regardless of their experience, fitness level, shape or size. We have two boutique studios in London, where you can access small group classes and private training daily. We also have LDM online video subscriptions and range of fitness equipment and apparel for taking part at home.  

What inspired you to launch LDM – tell us about your journey...   

After a professional dance career I started to transition into teaching dance and fitness. I was known for my unique style and had several disciplines under my belt but I realised there was something lacking from the workouts I was doing as a client at other gyms and studios.  

I saw a gap for doing things my way and created LDM. After combining the best bits of popular disciples such as yoga, HIIT, Pilates to name just a few I created my signature total body workout that ticks all the boxes in one session – the Shape Changer, the perfect balance of cardio and conditioning material.   

Next month we celebrate our first birthday at our Fitzrovia studio which offers a range of LDM classes that are constantly being fine tuned to suit our clients’ needs.  

What does the word ‘wellness’ mean to you?  

Wellness really sums up being at your optimal best physically and mentally. For me it’s about finding the right balance – time to focus on my changing needs, to honour my own rhythms and have the energy to achieve everything I need.  

What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?

My clients. Most mornings I’m either up early teaching group classes or I’m with a private client. The occasion I have a morning free, I’ll top up on sleep or schedule some time for myself on the mat.  

How important do you think physical health is to how happy and confident we feel?

Massively important. It should be the main reason you choose to work out and aesthetics are the bonus. The natural high we get from exercise is what keeps you committed.  

What about fashion and style – can what we wear make us happy?  

Absolutely, wearing something that helps you feel happy will be the reason your posture improves which will then be part of the reason your confidence improves and you carry yourself differently. You can express yourself through fashion and your own unique take on it. 

What are your feel-good outfits for work, the weekend and going out?  

I spend a lot of time in activewear and when I'm working out and training clients it’s all about supportive, feel-good fabrics. I select a sweat-wicking product that’s going to work hard for me when I’m back to back and versatile items that mean after a quick change I’m ready to go from studio to meeting.   

When I’m off-duty it’s a mix of denim, fun prints, slogan tees and a vintage feel is always present in my style. For going out I add some standout accessories, switch a trainer for shoe and opt for a dress or cool jumpsuit.  

What about your favourite brands?

Activewear brands such as Sweaty Betty, Lululemon, Lucas Hugh, Nike and Adidas keep me supported and stylish. For tees and sweaters I like British brand Double Trouble Gang – we collaborated on some limited edition LDM sweaters & hoodies. I also love brands such as Etre Cecile and Sezane for an injection of fun prints and slogan pieces.   

Free People, Reformation, ADAY, Faithfull the brand, Ganni and the Vampire’s Wife are labels I gravitate towards. I have some great jackets from Zoe Karssen, Whistles and Acne and my accessories are a mix of high street, vintage and investment pieces from Hill and Friends, Sezane, Laura Lee and Missoma.  

I’m often in trainers by Adidas, Nike and APL and I’m currently loving the Stella McCartney x Adidas Parley shoes made from recycled ocean plastics – they work for all cardio based workouts. Veja make eco-friendly Parisian cool trainers that I like for off-duty and I also like Russell & Bromley, Birkenstock, Soludos, Hobbs and Miu Miu.  

What’s next for you and for LDM? 

Plans are underway to open a bigger standalone LDM studio in London where clients can still benefit from small boutique group fitness and private training with more space and amenities. We have some exciting opportunities in the pipeline and I’m working hard to build up our online LDM video offerings, so we are accessible not just in London but anywhere and at anytime. Watch this space…

When it comes to beauty products it's easy to get lured into buying the latest trend without ever knowing if it's for you. Many products end up forgotten at the bottom of the beauty drawer. At least, that was the story until beauty subscription boxes came along... 


What are beauty subscription boxes? 

Beauty subscription boxes are basically the perfect way to invest in and test out a range of items tailored  to your personal needs. A box full of goodies will be delivered to your door  each month and you’ll get to sample all new products and new trends without breaking the bank. Sounds pretty good, right? From lipsticks to body creams, nail polish to bath oils, you get to decide the best product for you after testing it out. 

Each box is usually filled with five or six items from sample to full size. Some boxes come pre-filled while others you get to pick and choose what you'd like included. This means that you may be receiving full-sized products, but you don't have to drop a penny on items that you don't enjoy. 

Are you ready to shake up your beauty routine and give these boxes a try? Browse our personal favourites from the exclusive edit below...

By now you've probably noticed the beauty trend dominating Pinterest and Instagram. Your cheat sheet to achieving that dewy, radiant skin all year long without much makeup is a highlighter that complements your skin tone and is becoming a beauty staple essential as blush of eyeliner. 


How to choose the best highlighter for your skin tone... 

Fair skin tones 

For those with a light to pale complexion, it's best to opt for highlighters with a pearlescent gloss. The light pigments add enough radiance to your skin tone without washing you out. Stay away from shades that are too warm or too dark to avoid a heavy faux look. 

Medium skin tones 

If you want to wake up your skin opt for a highlighter with peach or gold undertones. This slight hint of colour is perfect for achieving a very natural sun-kissed glow. Add a bronze or gold eyeshadow and a nude lip to instantly look like a summer goddess. 

Dark skin tones 

For those with a darker skin colour go for a rich variation of rose gold or bronze. Make sure to opt for make up options that pack in lots of pigment and stay away from opalescent hues that might make the skin look grey. Mix your highlighter with your foundation to give an all over summer glow and apply a vibrant red lip for a show-stopping look. 

Get lit with the perfect array of highlighters in our exclusive edit below...
