Australian fitness trainer, businesswoman, and author Kayla Itsines. She is well-known for her fitness e-book series called “Bikini Body Guides” and her diet and exercise app called “Sweat with Kayla,” which in 2016 outperformed all other fitness apps in terms of revenue production. She has been a personal trainer since 2008 and has helped thousands of women improve their fitness and health using her own exercises that she created after extensive study. Together with her partner Tobi Pearce, she established the Bikini Body Training business. The young fitness expert is well-known on social media and a YouTube sensation. As of May 2018, she had 9.4 million fans on Instagram and 20 million on Facebook. She was listed as one of the 30 most influential persons online by Time magazine in 2016.
The career of Kayla Itsines
In Adelaide, Kayla Itsines started her job as a member of a women’s gym. She soon came to the conclusion that using the machines and equipment to conduct exercises was not helping her clients reach their fitness objectives. She gave them an aerobics class as an experiment, and she discovered that her customers really enjoyed it.
When she discovered that her customers preferred to exercise at home but were limited in space for machines and equipment, she created exercises that used the least amount of equipment and took up the least amount of room. She taught the friends of her sister who aspired to play netball at their secondary school. She also gave them dietary advice.
The Bikini Body Training business was established in March 2013 by her and her boyfriend Tobi Pearce, with Kayla acting as the director and Tobi as the CEO. She released the first two “Bikini Body Guides” in January 2014 as a result of Tobi’s advice. More than a million guides had been distributed by October 2014. She performed a “Kayla Itsines Bootcamp World Tour” in 2015 during which she offered free group exercise sessions. She appeared in a commercial for the Apple Watch that same year, showcasing the watch’s heart-rate monitoring functionality.
She introduced the Sweat with Kayla program in November 2015. She was initially chastised by the users of the app who thought it was expensive. They believed they should receive the software at a lower cost since they had already paid for the Bikini Body Guides e-books. In retaliation, Kayla lowered the cost of the program to $1 for the first month, but only for users who had already purchased e-books.
The Bikini Body 28-Day Eating and Lifestyle Guide, her debut print book, was published in 2016; The Bikini Body Motivation & Habits Handbook, her follow-up print book, was published in 2017.
