Last month, I was at the Kayla Itsines Sweat Tour surrounded by Kayla's superfans. I was lying on my back in the grassy field of the Rose Bowl arena in Los Angeles, getting ready to do some bicycle crunches, when a beautiful, chiseled, excited young woman came up to my friend and I, asking, "do you mind if I work out with you guys?"
Instantly, I recognized her face from Instagram — "that's @mysweatlife!" I thought to myself. Known by her handle (and her empowering story), Kelsey Wells is an icon within the BBG community.
Kelsey got down on the grass with us for ab bikes and cheered us on as we went into exhausting (but explosive!) tuck jumps. To be honest, it was one of the more exhilarating moments in my fitness career. Today, her story has been taking the internet by storm — and it's about the amount of weight she lost.
You're going to be stunned, trust me. Check it out.
She's chiseled, yes, but she hasn't always looked like this (or felt this good).
She's actually on week 84, meaning she just completed her seventh round. Over a year and a half of consistently following the Kayla Itsines program. What else did she do to get here? Literally nothing. Just BBG.
She worked both Sweat With Kayla tour events in NYC and Los Angeles. Hence, how we got to work out with her in LA!
For the "big weight loss," she only weighs five pounds less than her postpartum start weight — she weighs 18 pounds more than her goal weight! And look at how different her body is now. It's not about a scale, you guys. She is living proof. Make like Kelsey and say "Bye, Felicia" to your scale.
Pretty impressive, right?
