As many of you know, Kayla Itsines visited The Netherlands last week! The Australian Fit Girl is well known for her e-book Bikini Body Guides and has over 3 million followers on Instagram. During her world tour she does what she loves most: train, inspire and motivate people. Founder of #FITGIRLCODE, Aranka, sat down with Kayla for an interview.
I’ve been a personal trainer since the age of 18 and when I would ask my clients what they wanted to achieve, they would say they didn’t want the perfect body, but they wanted to feel comfortable wearing a bikini. That’s where the name Bikini Body Guide comes from.
Do you think you could have done this without Instagram?
No, I have so much success because of social media. If I wanted to do this 20 years ago, I never would have been able to reach so many people.
Who motivates you?
My fans motivate me, and my followers on my Instagram account. I didn’t have much when I started so I became my own motivation. I noticed the before and after pictures motivated my clients, so I started to publish them on Instagram.
Is it possible for everyone to get a Bikini Body like yours?
Being fit doesn’t mean there is a certain look to that. Everyone looks different. Also, we all have different preferences, some like muscular bodies and some don’t. That is why I focus so much on before and after picture, because if you see so much difference after a couple of weeks, you get your own idea on what fit means.
What is your favourite cheat meal?
I love tiramisu! And because I’m Greek, I’m used to eating a lot of food with plenty of spices, and with my guide all of that is possible. I don’t believe in just eating dry rice and chicken with vegetables. I have tried it, but it’s just not my thing!
We absolutely LOVED meeting this lovely Fit Girl and finding out what motivates and inspires her. Check out the full video interview and let us know what you think!
