Rise to Stardom

Laila Blue, originally known as Rebecca Holly, started her career as a fitness coach and gained popularity on Instagram. She joined Instagram to share pictures of her workout sessions and even offered her own “8 Week Booty Program”.

After giving birth to her son, she opened up about her struggles with weight loss and low appetite due to depression. She found it difficult to motivate herself to train and maintain calories. During this time, she was no longer in a relationship with the father of her son. She later shared a picture from a trip to Hamilton Island in Australia and talked about how it helped improve her mental health and encouraged her to move forward.
