Australian fitness trainer Kayla Itsines took to popular social media platform Instagram on Thursday to post a new mirror selfie and short workout video that flaunted her killer physique. In the accompanying caption, Kayla introduced her new workout challenge.
In the selfie, Kayla stood in front of a large mirror in her living room with a couch, carpet, and decorative items filling up the background space. She wore a black sports bra with a scoop neck and thin spaghetti straps that left much of her upper body bare and gave viewers an eyeful of her chiseled arms and toned tummy. On her lower half, she wore a pair of black gym shorts that sat low on her hips and left most of her lean legs on display.
For footwear, Kayla wore a pair of white sneakers with white ankle socks while accessorizing with a silver exercise watch. Her long, brunette tresses spilled down her back from a ponytail perched on the crown of her head, and she appeared to have added a touch of black mascara and pink lip gloss.
Kayla flexed one bicep muscle while shooting a wide smile toward the camera and cocking her head to the side. She also popped one hip out and perched one foot on her toes, elongating her toned legs.
