Kayla Itsines often takes to Instagram to share intense workout videos with her 12.1 million followers. Encouraging them to break a sweat with her, the fitness trainer shows off her skills in a variety of exercise routines.
This week the Australian native is re-sharing some of her followers’ favorite workout videos, according to the caption of her most recent post on Monday. The video in question features the fitness guru performing several exercise circuits on a beach. She explains in the caption that working out on the beach is incredibly hard, joking that she had to wash out her eyeballs after completing her routine. In the same caption, Kayla also expresses her appreciation for those who regularly work out on the sand.
The video starts with the personal trainer walking backwards onto the beach, and she’s already gleaming with sweat. She wears a white sports bra and blue shorts, showing off her toned tummy and sculpted legs. Kayla completes the look with a pair of white sneakers, her straight brown tresses pulled up into a high ponytail.
Kayla then performs a series of exercises, including burpees, push-ups, jumping push-ups, butt kicks, jumping jacks, and crunches. As she lies flat on her back, lifting both her legs and arms to touch in the middle, Kayla sends a blurb across the screen.
“This was a bad idea,” her message reads, followed by a laughing face emoji.
