You'd be hard pressed to find someone who hasn't heard of Aussie workout queen, Kayla Itsines.

After recently being named the world's top fitness influencer by American powerhouse Forbes, her empire is about to get a whole lot bigger.

Itsines is one of three names behind 'SWEAT', a new app launched on Monday that is set to offer women more flexibility and guidance in their fitness choices and health goals.

Recently we have been talking about our huge announcement, and we can finally say our APP is now LIVE! At SWEAT we believe that all women should feel happy, strong and confident within their own bodies. So we have partnered with three incredible trainers whose individual missions align with ours. You can find each of the girls workout programs within the SWEAT app. Take your body and mind on a journey with @sjanaelise yoga flows, workout at home or the gym with @kayla_itsines BBG and BBG Stronger workouts or kick-start your post-pregnancy journey with @mysweatlife fitness program! If you already have the SWEAT app simply update it or get a 7 Day Free Trial here —> www.sweat.com/app 💧

Building on an established female community and the SWEAT brand, launched in November last year by her partner Tobi Pearce, the app is a new training platform for Itsines alongside personal trainer Kelsey Wells and yoga teacher Sjana (Elise) Earp.

The girls mean business.

The app offers a range of video-led programs focusing on all aspects of health and wellbeing -- from strength performance and yoga to post-pregnancy training and rehab.

Featured on SWEAT is a new version (and the new home) of Itsines' popular Bikini Body Workout called 'BBG Stronger', a 28-minute resistance program incorporating weights exercises that can be done at home or in the gym. Both the original and updated strength program will be available on the app.

SURPRISE!!!! .....MY NEW WORKOUT PROGRAM BBG STRONGER IS NOW LIVE IN THE @SWEAT APP!! FINALLY - LEG PRESS, SMITH MACHINES, CABLES AND MORE... My brand new program, just like BBG, focuses on 28-minute resistance sessions 2-3 x per week, but is specially designed for those wanting to workout at the gym! #BBGstronger incorporates both gym-based equipment as well as free weights! I know a lot of BBG girls have been wanting this for a very long time, so HERE IT IS!! From week 1 onwards I will take you on a journey where I slowly introduce you to gym equipment, allowing you to take your strength to another level. Together, SWEAT and I are on the same mission, to help women live a happier, healthier and more confident life! .... and that's not the only surprise @sweat has for you..... check out the SWEAT app for more!!! www.kaylaitsines.com/app

From qualified yoga teacher Sjana Earp comes a 28-minute step-by-step yoga program, 'Body and Mind' that users can follow along at their own pace.

A glossary screen can be accessed by tapping the exercise video wherever you are in the app.

And for the new mums out there, a post-pregnancy program created by trainer Kelsey Wells is on offer to ease them back into exercise.

'Strong Empowered Life through Fitness' is the first of a series of programs developed by Wells for SWEAT, with training including low-impact abdominal, pelvic floor and full-body workouts.

SWEAT allows users to choose and move between programs, trainers and workout styles as they desire, offering a 'planner' feature to keep them in check and 'challenges' to take part in extra workouts.

Monday is legs day with Kayla.

Users can also utilise a meal plan and shopping list function to access over four hundred recipes that suit their dietary requirements and budget.

With a strong following of just under 7 million on Instagram, combined with those of Earp and Wells, we think this is something Itsines' fans will get behind.

SWEAT can be downloaded via iTunes or Google Play. To stay in the loop about updates, check the website.
