Who is Kayla Itsines?

Kayla Itsines is an Australian entrepreneur, fitness influencer, personal trainer, and author. She authored Bikini Body Guides and The Bikini Body 28-Day Eating and Lifestyle Guide and developed the workout app Sweat with Kayla

Shortly after graduating from the Australia Fitness Institute, Kayla found a job at a women's gym in Adelaide. She trained and lectured women on fitness and nutrition while taking before-and-after photos. Then, a cousin suggested she post them on Instagram, and that's when her career as a social media fitness influencer began. 

A few months after posting on Instagram, Kayla gained thousands of followers and queries on anything fitness-related. Following her soaring popularity, Kayla's ex-fiance, Tobi Pearce, suggested she compile her routines into e-books to sell online. 

In March 2013, Kayla and Tobi founded the Bikini Body Training company, with the former as director and the latter as CEO. The company published Kayla's Bikini Body Guides, that's been downloaded over a million times in October of that year. 

Kayla Itsines has 28M followers on Facebook, 16M on Instagram, 414K on YouTube, 359.1K on Twitter, 135.4K on Pinterest, and 83.3K on TikTok.
