Fitness influencer Kayla Itsines has opened up about her split from ex-fiancé Tobi Pearce in a revealing new interview.
The 32-year-old entrepreneur, who co-founded the hugely successful workout app SWEAT with Pearce, has rarely spoken at length about their relationship since their split in 2020.

But in an interview with the Australian Financial ReportItsines didn’t hold back, describing her daughter’s father, Arna, as “money-minded” and “the complete opposite” of her.
The couple made the AFR’s Young Rich List in 2019 with an estimated net worth of $486 million.
But behind the scenes of their glamorous life of luxury, all was not smooth sailing, Itsines told the outlet.
“We’re polar opposites of each other,” she said.
“I look back and I’m like, ‘I have no idea how this all happened.’
“If I take a step back and look back on my years with Tobi, I really don’t think we were anything alike.”
Itsines said that while Pearce was “business-oriented,” he was more family-oriented.
“I’m a fixer. I want your day to be the best day possible,” she said.
“I want to make sure that you feel warm, comfortable and loved in my home.
“Tobi came to me without a family, without the slightest feeling for it. I thought, “I can fix you.”
“He said to me, ‘We’re dating. Now we are starting a company. Now let’s do it’.”
The two met in 2012 and founded Bikini Body Training Company, which has garnered a huge following – and fortune – with its workout programs, apps, and books.
But their relationship fell apart in 2020, and Itsines described their time together as “a struggle.”
After developing the workout app SWEAT, they sold it to an American company in 2021 for a whopping $400 million.
“Nothing was easy in my previous relationship,” Itsines told AFR.
“It was always difficult. It was always a struggle.”
Itsines is now engaged to Jae Woodroffe, with whom she has a son, Jax, who was born in January.
Pearce is in a relationship with fitness trainer Rachel Dillon.
Itsines and Woodroffe announced their pregnancy in July last year by sharing a picture of their ultrasound on Instagram.
The pregnancy was announced just days after the couple announced their engagement.
