Kayla Itsines, a young 23 year old Australian lady, is taking the world by storm. With nearly 2.8 million followers, Kayla has become an Instagram fitness sensation.
Her method, the “Healthy Bikini Body Guide”, a fitness program that promises to transform your body, has been a resounding success.
According to her website, Kayla's journey began in 2008, when she started a personal training course at the Australian Institute of Fitness.
When asked by Hello! Magazine on how is this exercise regime different to others out there, Kayla explained:
“I guess the biggest difference is the goal. Rather than being a weight-loss or a muscle gaining program it is simply a plan to get you a particular look. It will help work both ways, to gain strength and to lose fat. The workouts aren’t easy but this is compensated by some amazing flexibility in my meal plan (and recipe books coming very soon. By putting an emphasis on confidence I have slowly been trying to steer women away from unrealistic body images and teaching them to be happy from the inside out.”
“The resistance workouts in my Bikini Body Training Guide are 3 days per week. The resistance training circuit workouts are 28 minutes long - which makes it easy for girls (or brides-to-be for that matter) to fit in a workout during their hectic daily schedule! In between these resistance workouts is a small amount of both low and high intensity cardio. There is a huge variation in exercise type and most of the sessions can be done in 30 minutes, with almost no equipment.”
