Kayla Itsines opens up on pregnancy and motherhood


After a transformative year marked by a new baby, a year-end wedding, a major business buyback and a move to the Gold Coast, Greek Australian Kayla Itsines spoke to the Advertiser about the changes in her life and her evolution from the personal trainer who gained fame through bikini-body workouts on Instagram.

The founder of the Bikini Body Guide (BBG) and the Sweat app, Itsines has shifted from her earlier intense workout focus to a more holistic approach to fitness.

According to the Advertiser, she now has two children, Arna and Jax and she has moved to the Gold Coast. Motherhood brought a shift in her perspective on fitness. She understands the emotional hurdles during pregnancy and the challenges of post-pregnancy recovery.

Despite those challenges, she continued to inspire her followers with her authenticity and relatable journey, amassing over 16 million followers on social media.

In 2020, she and her former partner, Tobi Pearce, sold Sweat to iFit for an estimated $228 million. This move elevated Itsines to the Rich List, with an estimated net worth of $164 million. In 2021, she married Jae Woodroffe, marking another significant life change.

As the Advertiser suggest, for her, family is everything, and coming from a big Greek family makes it matter even more. They are so close, that when she left home to live with Tobi Pearce, her family wanted to know what they had done wrong.

Now, at 32, Itsines embraces a more expansive and forgiving approach to fitness, evident in her new book, “Reboot with Kayla,” which offers a balance of nurturing advice, practical exercise drills, and meal plans and it emphasizes living a healthy, well-rounded life.

“We have always been a platform built for women, by women, providing a secure and encouraging space for them to share their transformation journeys. Our commitment to this community remains unwavering,” she said.
