My Kayla Itsines Workout Review

UPDATE: Are you thinking about buying Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide? DON’T

Let me tell you why…

In case you do not already know, Kayla Itsines is the author of the Bikini Body Guide. Her workout and bikini body diet has become very popular and has recently created a bit of a stir in the dieting industry.

Some are saying the diet is a FAD diet and others say the diet is “Unsafe”. But, I’m not here to judge or rubbish Kayla Itsines workout or her bikini body guide. I’m sure the workouts are GOOD, Kayla is proof of that and so are the raving reviews on the web(if they are real that is).

My Kayla Itsines workout review is a bit different to those who blab on about her program. Why? Well…I never actually bought it and with good reason.

I’m the type of person who does their homework before buying anything – especially online and that’s because I’ve been stuffed around in the past.

When I first found out about Kayla Itsines I was pretty excited, I mean her videos are good, she definitely knows her stuff and lets be honest – her body is amazing!

I was almost about to buy her Bikini Body Guide until I seen the total price of the whole program. OMG the extra costs WTF!!

Have you workout out the TOTAL price? If not let me break it down for you.

Equipment Kayla Itsines recommends for her bikini body guide…

I don’t want to sound cheap or anything, but this really shocked me….Then to do the workouts you need to buy a bench, a yoga mat (optional), two small dumbbell weights (3-5 kgs each), medicine ball (between 6-12kgs), a jump rope, and a bosu ball. She also recommends a fitness tracker/heart monitor = $197


This is why I DIDN”T buy Kayla Itsines bikini body guides, I mean is it really worth a few hundred dollars?

This is when I went in search for an alternative. So I searched Google and Youtube to find myself a good solid plan without all the extra costs.

The Kayla Itsines Alternative That Worked For Me!

Like I said, I’m not here to rubbish Kayla Itsines guides this is my opinion and if you really want to buy her stuff, go for it. BUT if you’re anything like myself and don’t want to spend that kind of money then here is the alternative I found, purchased and has worked for me.

Doing a quick search I found a couple of programs which are very similar to Kayla’s bikini body guide. The first one I came across was complete rubbish and the second one I found really caught my eye.

Jen Ferruggia’s Bikini Body Workouts is what I found. At first I didn’t realise but I remember seeing Jen Ferruggia in a magazine(Muscle & Fitness Hers Magazine). Again, I done my research and to my surprise Jen’s bikini body workouts are actually very very similar to Kayla Itsines Bikini Body guide! Only a fraction of the price.

Here is What’s Included in Jen Ferruggia’s Bikini Body Guide

  • Bikini Body guide shopping list to help you make the best choices.

Bikini Body Workouts Guide Results!

Check out the before and after picture using Jen’s guides…


Jen really knows what she is talking about(you only have to watch this video to see why), she’s helped 100s of thousands of women like me get their bikini body back. I’m a mom and after giving birth to my second child I found it really hard to lose the weight. Without a solid plan like Jens guides I wouldn’t have been able to get the results I have.

Jen Ferruggia if you’re reading this I just want to tell you from the bottom of my heart that I am so thankful of what you have done for me…you’ve changed my life and I am so happy.

Hope you enjoyed my review, I know it’s probably a little different than all the other raving reviews out there but this is my opinion and how I feel about Kayla Itsines workout program, for me it’s just to expensive and honestly I am so happy I found Jen’s bikini body guide as a cheaper alternative.

Good luck and never give up 😀
