Louise Banfield

Louise – Founder and Partner

After many years of friends and colleagues asking Louise to open a gym in Torrington, she finally bit the bullet and opened Function Fitness in 2012.

Her vision was to create a family-run gym for the whole community. It holds a special place in her heart having started school in the same building as a young child.

Louise started her career as a PTI in the Army, before specialising in Pilates and Sports Therapy over 20 years ago.

In 2018 Louise handed the management of the gym over to her son Charlie, so that she could focus on LB Movement, her new Pilates and Yoga venture.

You will still see Louise around and about the gym, teaching Barre and the occasional class.
