Just one more reason to love Kayla.

It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Miss Kayla Itsines here at Sporteluxe HQ.

The woman is everything we aspire to be, and more. Intelligent, entrepreneurial, hardworking, kind, motivated, super fit—and tack “really real” onto that list of accolades. Just over the weekend, Itsines posted a low-key photo that was very different than her usual ab selfies.

The shot was a close-up iPhone photo of Itsines’ tanned and toned hip, complete with a rainbow of tiny, lightly faded stretch marks. “Hey chicks!!!,” the caption begins. “This one is for the ladies asking me if I have stretch marks anywhere, yes I sure do 😍😘….. and if any of my friends or family are on here you know how much I love them!! I am a woman, and I am proud to be one and have these marks! Some of us wont have any at all, some will have them just like me and others will be completely different. We all have them, mine are on the sides of my legs…. for now 😝 sure when I decide to have some babies, I’ll get some more – but hey, #thisisme! My beautiful bubba will be so much more important than a few lines on my bod! 👌 ”

We love how real and authentic Itsines is about her stretch marks—as she shows, even the fittest girls rock little stretchies here and there! It’s just part of life. Props to Kayla for showing us that a fit, strong, healthy body looks different for everyone.
