First, there was royalty, movie stars, then rock stars and pop stars. Each has appealed to the masses. I don't mean to generalize, but recently our celebrities seem to be inundated with vapid superficial reality stars. Who really don't do much in the way of serving as any type of role model. Not for the young people and not really for anyone. It's a sad state of affairs when just because someone has a Reality TV show, they can become a household name for doing what? I know they post a lot of selfies on Instagram naked. Is this what the world is coming to? Is this how we want our young women to grow up? Putting body before brains? 

 Of course, the world of fitness is "body conscious". However, these 5 women are smart, entrepreneurial, business women, who have made it their business, to inspire people in the health world. And this is valuable.  

If you haven't heard of them, these are some of the "rock stars" of the workout world. Each week we hope to feature people who inspire you, to be the best "you" possible. 

Kayla Itsines:


My name is Kayla and I am 24 years old from Adelaide, Australia. My journey began in 2008 when I started a personal training course at the Australian Institute of Fitness. After graduation, I took a job at a “women’s only” personal training centre in Adelaide, Australia. I soon realized, the methods I was instructed to use often fell short or did not provide the results the client was aspiring to achieve. From the new female clients, I was always hearing:I hate my inner thighs
I want toned arms
I just want a flat stomach and nice abs.

Jackie Warner:  

From humble beginnings to the Hollywood lifestyle.  My personal life story.

Part 1

My journey really started as I drove for three days, by myself at age 18 from Ohio to Los Angeles. In those three days I transformed from a child to an adult. With each passing mile, relief and joy overtook me. Finally, I was able to close the door on the people and places that would never accept me or see me for the person that I was. In Los Angeles, I could be whatever I wanted and find others that were not only like me but that would invest in me for being unique. I’ve traveled the world and I like many places but I still feel very happy when the plane wheels touch down at LAX.I went to fashion school. I went to art school. I sold aluminum siding. I worked as a telemarketer. No job was beneath me and I tried to be the best at whatever crappy place I would go. I was a good salesperson and started my first business at 21. It was very successful and my life changed. I had financial freedom and could travel or buy whatever I wanted. After I sold my business I worked for Warner Brothers and other entertainment companies. But I always got bored and felt that I wasn’t living my passion. My purpose in life was not being fulfilled.
