Who is kayla itsines
My name is Kayla and I am 24 years old from Adelaide, Australia.
My journey began in 2008, when I started a personal training course at the Australian Institute of Fitness. After graduation, I took a job at a “women’s only” personal training centre in Adelaide, Australia. I soon realised, the methods I was instructed to use often fell short or did not provide the results the client was aspiring to achieve. From the new female clients, I was always hearing:
I hate my inner thighs
I want toned arms
I just want a flat-stomach and nice abs
The same issues kept reoccurring so I decided to do some of my own research, and began to develop my own set of exercises that targeted those areas specifically. Fortunately, I was left in charge of the facility in the absence of the manager and had a small amount of time to run things the way I wanted.
“Before I knew it, I had developed workouts and cardio techniques, mixed with nutrition planning that achieved a certain result: a bikini body confidence.”
I soon left the training facility, and started my own company aimed at helping women achieve a bikini body in the most efficient and effective way possible. My clients saw amazing results in 12 weeks or sometimes even sooner, and began to tell their friends and spread an amazing positive message. I soon realised that this was becoming bigger than I had imagined, and I needed a way to reach more women.
It was then I decided to build a presence on Instagram and Facebook, in order to share my training and nutrition methods. By uploading client transformations, healthy eating ideas, and some training tips, I was able to inspire thousands of women to move towards a healthier lifestyle and nothing makes me happier. Having the ability to touch the lives of so many people through my fitness and nutrition guidelines has been the most rewarding part of my practice!
When I was young, I always said: “I don’t know what I want to be. I just want to help people.” Fitness has become my passion, and I now get to help women around the world every single day. I hope to inspire you to be the best you can be.
