Have you heard of the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide? Of course you have! If you scroll through Instagram you’ll see plenty of motivated ladies sharing their journeys using #BBG.
I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, so I downloaded the Sweat with Kayla app a couple of weeks ago, I love it! And I am not the only one. I’ve done plenty of home workouts before, but there seems to be something about this one. Here is why I think Kayla Itsines has become so popular;
The workouts are achievable, at only 30 mins long, it is hard to make excuses not to just do it.
Even if you are a novice, the app has 4 weeks worth of beginner training to ensure that you are fit enough to complete the BBG without injuring yourself.
You don’t really need much equipment, and most things you can substitute for household items.
The workouts really do make you sweat, so much so that a hairwashing shower is required, meaning that you feel like you’ve really achieved something.
The app even has a food diary to let you know what you should be eating, and it caters for different dietary options, even vegan!
Kayla actually seems like a lovely person, she started out as a personal trainer, sharing the success of her clients on her Instagram page, she is inspirational, and a reminder that you can do anything if you put your mind to it!
You are encouraged to go walking, running or cycling for 40 minutes a few times a week, which some people may not incorporate into a workout, but it is a good way to remind you to just do more exercise.
The main reason for Kayla’s success is surely the incredible community! I joined the BBG Support Group on Facebook, which has almost 40,000 members, and I was amazed. The love and support these women give each other is overwhelming, and in this world, women supporting each other is so crucial.
