Women’s Health’s July cover star Kayla Itsines probably needs little introduction. Founder of a multi-million dollar fitness empire with the hugely-successful Sweat app at its core, the 29-year-old has helped millions of women the world over start, and stick to, a training routine. Her philosophy? Firstly, that getting fit – and staying that way – only requires 30 minutes of exercise each day. And secondly, that showing up for these sessions (be it a swift walk or high-octane HIIT) is one of the most simple and effective form of self-care. Yes, this no-nonsense Aussie PT-turned-global home workout mogul passionately believes that self-kindness does sometimes looks like being tough and gritty. Why? Because showing up for that session, whether you want to or not, is ultimately one step towards unlocking the mind-and-body rewards wrought by having a consistent, sustainable fitness routine. This conversation has tough love, tonnes of insight from Kayla’s journey back to fitness after giving birth to her one-year-old daughter, Arna – and advice for how everyone can embark upon a forever fitness journey, whatever your current level.
