Who is Tobi Pearce dating now? Has he moved on after separation from Kayla Itsines?

Tobi Pearce has a distinct personality. The multimillionaire co-founder of the fitness empire Sweat has replaced his ex-fiancée and business partner Kayla Itsines with fitness influencer Rachel Dillon, who looks eerily like his former flame.

Tobi Pearce, Kayla Itsines’ ex-boyfriend, is dating Rachel Dillon, a fitness influencer

After spending time together on the Gold Coast, the new couple was photographed flying into Adelaide Airport on Thursday. They were joined by Tobi’s two-year-old daughter, Arna, whom he shares with Kayla, as a telling sign that things are already serious.

Rachel and the little girl appear to have a strong bond, implying that Tobi and Rachel have been dating for a long time. Rachel, 28, embraced Arna as she knelt by the baggage carousel, her 29-year-old boyfriend looking on.

Tobi and Rachel have been contacted by the Daily Mail Australia for comment. Although it’s unclear how long they’ve been dating, this is Tobi’s first relationship since his divorce from Kayla, 30, in August 2020.

Who is Rachel Dillon?

Rachel Dillon is a WBFF Model and entrepreneur who’s transformed her life through fitness. She’s now recognized for helping other women do the same.

However, back in her early years, Rachel’s life was a far cry from what it looks like now. She felt unhappy with her figure despite religiously doing cardio. It wasn’t until she found out that weight training was the way to go, that Rachel started seeing the progress she wanted.

How Tobi Went From Homeless to Millionaire In 4 Years

In a two-part Instagram post, Tobi Pearce, revealed his dark past and how he battled against the odds to become a successful fitness entrepreneur.

“I came from a small country town, a family of four and my family lived a humble “normal” life,” wrote the 25-year-old businessman. “We had all the same problems any family does, but unfortunately also had many other uncommon struggles.”

Pearce credits his move into personal training for turning his life around.

“Once starting Personal Training I had a chance to seek both financial and LIFE independence. If successful, id be able to make others healthy & feel good about themselves, get out of my shed and be “free”. During Uni I used PT as an outlet & tried hard to make ends meet. In under 4 months I was busy with 2 start ups & a female boot camp.

“Jumping forward a few years, I made enough money to rent. Finally after years of being isolated and homeless, without certainty, I had MY OWN HOME.”

Joining Itsines in 2014, the couple formed The Bikini Body Training Company, a subscription service that manages your workout and nutritional plans. The company quickly became a global success, catapulting the pair into stardom.

In 2016, Pearce and Itsines were named on the BRW Young Rich List, with a combined worth of $46 million.

Pearce’s takehome message: “I’m not perfect, but I’m doing all I can to become the best I can, positively contribute to the world & others. I’m not done..more soon.”

Who is Kayla Itsines?

Kayla Itsines is an Australian personal trainer, entrepreneur, and author. She is world famous for her fitness e-book series, ‘Bikini Body Guides’, and her nutrition planning and workout app called ‘Sweat with Kayla’, which overshadowed all other fitness apps in revenue generation in 2016.

Since 2008, she has been working as a personal trainer and has guided thousands of women to improve their health and fitness with her own exercises, which she developed after much research. She founded the Bikini Body Training company with her boyfriend Tobi Pearce.

The young fitness guru is also a YouTube star and a popular social media personality. She has 20 million followers on Facebook and 9.4 million on Instagram as of May 2018. In 2016, Time magazine named her as one of the 30 most influential people on the Internet.

 

Kayla Itsines and partner Tobi Pearce call it quits after 8 years

Kayla posted, “After eight years together, Tobi and I have come to the difficult decision to separate as a couple. We will always be family, and remain good friends and devoted parents to Arna.”

“We have grown up together in Adelaide, sharing a lifetime of experiences and special memories from moving into our first apartment and starting SWEAT from our lounge room to becoming parents to our beautiful daughter. Our friendship remains strong as we parent Arna together and run SWEAT as business partners. Thank you for your support and kindness during this time.”

What did Tobi say?

Tobi echoed her sentiments, posting a similar statement, saying “After eight years together, Kayla and I have come to the difficult decision to separate as a couple. We will always be family, and remain good friends and devoted parents to Arna.”

“We have grown up together in Adelaide, sharing a lifetime of experiences and special memories from moving into our first apartment and starting SWEAT from our lounge room to becoming parents to our beautiful daughter. Our friendship remains strong as we parent Arna together and run SWEAT as business partners. Thank you for your support and kindness during this time.”

Their relationship timeline

Kayla and Tobi first met in 2012 at a gym in their home town of Adelaide, and together created a 12-week fitness programme – initially called the Bikini Body Guide (or BBG as it was known), which went on to become the online SWEAT programme and app. The programme went on to garner millions of fans world-wide, earning Kayla the number place on Forbes’ top fitness influencers list in 2017 and the duo a spot on the AFR Young Rich List in 2018 – with their empire valued at $486 million.

Six years later the pair announced that they were pregnant with their first child together in April 2018, and shortly after announced their engagement – complete with a lavish surprise engagement party that Tobi organised for his pregnant partner.

After giving birth in 2019, Kayla launched a pre-natal version of her popular fitness programme, and spoke openly about the challenges of life after having a C-section, the realities of pregnancy and how, postpartum, she lost her confidence in her ‘safe’ space – in the gym.

However, despite the challenges of motherhood, she told Body+Soul that she was “absolutely” keen for a second child even joking that she wanted baby number two to look more like her and less like Tobi, saying on the Healthy-ish podcast “But baby number two is going to be Greek looking, look like me… Arna’s a clone of Tobi – blue eyes, fair skin, light hair. It’s like, ‘oh, I look like the nanny.’”

Despite the challenges many working parents to small children face, the pair continued to appear happy and committed to their life together – with both often referencing publicly how supportive the other was of their family unit, and professional goals.

What went wrong?

From the outside, the couple looked happy and kicking goals, running the globally successful SWEAT programme while raising their daughter Arna. The only clue we have that things weren’t perhaps as rosy as they had been is the absence of each other from Kayla’s and Tobi’s social media feeds.

Kayla’s Instagram is used primarily as a tool to promote her SWEAT programme and community, with the odd sprinkling of family or personal posts from her life – but the most recent update on her relationship came seven month’s ago on Valentine’s Day. She posted a collage of pictures of Tobi, with an accompanying caption saying

“Happy Valentine’s Day @tobi_pearce – I love you and always will…. and even though Arnas first words were “dada” and “baba”… that’s fine, I STILL love you😂 #myfamily #soproud”
