Kayla Itsines has taken to Instagram to show her fans that even fitness superstars get stretch marks.
The Aussie personal trainer – behind the internationally renowned Bikini Body Guide and SWEAT app – posted a photo of her upper thigh in a pair of bikinis, showing the wiggly, white lines we’re all familiar with.
“This one is for the ladies asking me if I have stretch marks anywhere,” she wrote in the caption. “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 won’t have any at all, some will have them just like me and others will be completely different.”
She added that although they’re only on the sides of her legs for now, she expects plenty more when she eventually starts a family.
“I'm 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!”
Hear, hear Kayla!
