Kayla Itsines Interview – Weight Loss Coach & Fitness Model Talks With T&T!



How Did You Get Started In Health And Fitness?

I’ve been playing basketball since I was very young, I guess exercising has always been in my life.

What Is Your Workout Routine?

My workouts are different every week. I work in a split that has 3 resistance training days that separate legs, abs and arms. I also do LISS cardio several days a week and a small amount of HIIT sprint training.

What Is Your Diet Like?

I don’t use any supplements except for multivitamins. My general concept is that all nutrients can be acquired from food. Supplements are a convenience thing for women, I am not against them but just don’t require them in my life.

I typically have 3 mains meals and 2 snacks per day.

Breakfast: Eggs, tomato and avocado on toast
Snack: Tuna salad
Lunch: Yiros with salad, home made tzatziki and chicken
Snack: fruit
Dinner: Greek roast vegetables (sweet potato, pumpkin, capsicum etc) with home made chicken skewers.


What Food Would We Find In Your Fridge?

Mostly vegetables, fruit and a small amount of meat.

How Do You Handle Set Backs & Bad Days?

Just keep on working. Its not going to be forever. 🙂

You Run A Brilliant Business Helping People Transform Their Bodies. How Does It Feel Changing So Many People’s Lives? Is There A Story Or Person That Stands Out For You?

The reason I work doing what I do is because the transformations are what motivate me. Helping people change their lives and mindset is what makes my job so rewarding. I don’t pick or choose favourites all of my clients are equally rewarding. I think the most incredible change however was with one of my most recent clients uploaded to instagram. She was a young girl who has suffered from multiple auto-immune problems for years. She survived, worked hard and achieved amazing things, I am so proud of her.

What Are The Most Common Questions You Get Asked From Your Clients & How Do You Answer?

This almost always around belly or thigh fat. As I posted recently 8th April from what I have researched spot training doesn’t exist. Keep working, eat, living and resting properly and your body will reward you with what you want.

What Are Your Best Exercises & Tips For Getting That Ripped 6 Pack?

Consistency is without a doubt the most important thing.

Did You Make Any Mistakes When You First Started Out?

Definitely. Everyone learns a lot along the way. Nothing stands out in particular but I guess I have made some funny mistakes trying out new exercises I’ve invented.

Give Your Best 3 Health Tips That People Can Implement Right Now:

1. Don’t do too much
2. Don’t change what you do too much
3. Take the advice of one person


Your Best Tips To Getting Into Contest Shape/Losing Those Last Few Pounds?

Dont panic and stay consistent. People worry the closer the goal gets and they always try to change things up to force progress. Changing things all the time doesn’t achieve results, consistency and planning does. Stick to the plan.

Other Than Fitness, What Are You Interested In?

Basketball, Travelling and my puppy.

What’s Your Funniest Moment At The Gym?

The first time my boyfriend trained me. I was trying so hard to put on a tough face but really I was struggling. I told him 1 year later that I couldn’t walk for almost a week after our session.

Where Does Your Motivation Come From?

I think its the constant demand that I have online to help more people. This motivates me because I do not want to let any of them down, ever.

  • I used to be a gymnast many years ago and quite good. As I got older,I’m now 52 and actually still have pretty good muscle tone. However around 11years ago I’ve had to have two neck surgeries and 1 lumbar surgeries because of herniated discs. As a matter of fact I was just diagnosed w a new herniated disc lumbar skipped a level where I had my previous surgery first was L5 now L3- weird I know. Anyway I have always been so active and always in pain and on Meds I don’t want to take, but the getting off just physical and well docs put u on Meds but don’t try to get u off. As a matter of fact my doc thinks I will have to take Narcodic Meds for the rest of my life. I would love to get to a gym I feel if I build my muscles more it would help the pain, but everyone tells me I think they are scared for me thinking I will make things worst. I. know I will have to get the herniation taken care of, the MRI shows large herniation that when u look at films appears to be like a waterfall down the levels, if u can pic this, it’s hard I know and your not a doc. but do u think if after surgery, cause if I let it go on can do more damage in way of nerves. I am 5’2 and around 115 to 119lbs( get weighed every month at docs.) anyway do u think I can get this back my back in shape again by using low weights? And do you think u can recommend so sort of routine exersizes, or a starting place to rebuild my muscles? I am or was always able to build muscle fast, I eat healthily,walk as much as I can. I just want to get back in shape and feel good physically and mentally. Any suggestions for me after I told u my life story? Lol
    Anyway if u can help me w suggestions I would be grateful (thought this word would be appropriate w Thanksgiving coming up) Lol
