Kayla Itsines is not just an Instagram fitness model, but also a renowned fitness trainer that seems to genuinely care about her followers. She often takes to the social media platform to encourage her 12.1 million followers to chase after their goals, while also sharing her favorite workouts and exercises.

The Australian native makes it a point to challenge societal norms, especially when it comes to women’s bodies. She inspires women to define success and beauty for themselves. On Sunday, Kayla emphasized this message by posting several photos of women in the middle of their own journeys who are all strong and healthy at different weights, shapes, and sizes.

The photo series began with a gym selfie of the fitness trainer. She posed in a weight room as she showed off her chiseled figure in a skimpy workout outfit. The trainer wore a dark-turquoise sports bra with spaghetti straps that hugged her chest and left her toned abdomen on full display. She paired the top with dark-gray gym shorts that ended at the top of her thighs and showed off her long, sculpted legs.

Kayla completed the look with white sneakers and a white Apple watch. She pulled her long, brown tresses up into a high bun on top of her head. As she smiled slightly for the photo, she flexed one of her biceps, revealing the payoff of her hard work.

[SWIPE ACROSS] “Strong” and “healthy” is going to look different on everyone and that’s something that we as women, need to remember. Ladies, everyBODY is different and everybody’s journey with health and fitness is going to be different.⁣ ⁣ They say “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and I HONESTLY believe that to be true. Some people might look at me and wish they had my body, some people might look at me and see a small chest and a small bum and not want my body, but that’s not important. What’s important is that I WANT my body and I LOVE my body and at the end of the day that’s what matters most.⁣ ⁣ Let’s EMBRACE and accept our bodies for everything they are and stop worrying about everything they’re not.⁣ ⁣ #bbgcommunity : @confidentiallykatie @learning2loveburpees @julieanakim @ami.sweatlife @mum_sweatlife⁣ ⁣ www.kaylaitsines.com/app⁣ ⁣ #BBG #BBGStronger #BBGBeginner #BBG2020 #fitnessmotivation
