Kayla was born in Adelaide, Australia on the 21st of May 1991 to Greek parents.
As a child she was underweight and had health problems. At the age of 15 she was diagnosed with endometriosis, a medical condition that affects women and causes infertility. Kayla had to undergo a surgery and the experience made her search for a healthier lifestyle and she eventually turned to fitness.
Itsines worked out at a gym, with time fell in love with fitness and decided to become an educated trainer. In 2008 she graduated at the Australian Institute of Fitness and began working at a women’s training center.
While working with clients at the women’s gym Kayla observed that the existing workouts did not give satisfying results. She realized women usually seek out three results of training: flatter abdomen, smaller thighs, and toned arms. So Kayla Itsines made her own routines focusing on tackling those goals and started working as a mobile personal trainer.
As she was training her sister’s friends, the teenagers made before-and-after photos of their fitness progress and posted them on Instagram. It started an avalanche of followers for Itsines. Her partner Tobi Pearce then suggested making an e-book of Kayla’s routines and selling it online.
They founded the Bikini Body Training company in March 2013. The first two Bikini Body Guides, published in January 2014, were downloaded more than million times.
Kayla Itsines also started a YouTube channel at the end 2012 that today has 180 thousand followers and almost 20 million views for about 130 uploaded videos.
Kayla’s program is meant to help one achieve slim and fit physique full of strength, but without bulk.
In 2015 she released an app called “Sweat with Kayla” that was met with criticism by users. The app got bad reviews mainly because of the costs and difficulties with cancelling subscriptions.
Itsines has taken two world tours through Australia, England and US giving free fitness classes – in 2015 “Kayla Itsines Bootcamp World Tour” and in 2016 “Kayla Itsines Sweat Tour”.
She has even published a print book in 2016 called „The Bikini Body 28-Day Eating and Lifestyle Guide”.
