Kayla Itsines

Kayla Itsines has been a trailblazer in the women’s fitness industry since creating her OG high intensity training program for women and co-founding the Sweat app in 2015, which is now home to over 50 unique programs and more than 13,000 workouts – all proudly designed by women, for women.

Driven by her love of community and helping women to take charge of their health, Kayla has created one of the largest online female fitness communities in the world, reaching millions of women globally. Every year, she helps women make genuine, lasting and positive lifestyle changes throughout every stage of life, with her range of low impact, high intensity, pregnancy and postpartum programs in the Sweat app.

Kayla first discovered her passion for empowering women through fitness when she began working as a qualified personal trainer in Adelaide at the age of 18. Kayla’s training style quickly resonated with her growing client base of women seeking to make sustainable health and fitness changes. But behind the scenes, Kayla was going through a health journey of her own – this was the year she would finally be diagnosed with endometriosis after years of experiencing debilitating symptoms.

Since first sharing her own endometriosis story in 2021, Kayla has been using her voice to raise awareness about this incredibly common disease. Today, she’s a healthy and fit businesswoman and mum who just happens to be one of the 830,000 EndoWarriors in Australia. Endometriosis affects one in seven women, girls and those assigned female at birth and it takes an average of 6.5 years to be diagnosed. Kayla is passionate about changing the face of endometriosis in Australia, which is why we’re so excited to announce Kayla as our newest Endometriosis Australia Ambassador.
