Khloe Kardashian has taken center stage as one of the best looking sisters in the Kardashian clan. After dropping *40 pounds, getting her own show,”Kocktails with Khloe,” and revamping her look, it seems she’s taken over the spot light and lit up social media! SO, how did Khloe shed the weight and get healthy? “Strong Looks Better Naked,” is the name of her new book which details her journey. Along with a great new attitude, she also brought on one of our favorite celebrity trainers, Gunner Peterson!
Whether you’re a fan of Khloe or not this video may make you think twice about how motivated you are in your own workout routines and what it really takes to lose weight, inches and body fat. I have a bit more respect for for her after watching her train with Gunner.
Gunner is quoted as saying …
Khloé gives as much to the gym as the gym gives to her,” her trainer Gunnar Peterson tells PEOPLE. “She never cancels,” he says. “It can be a night where she’s short on sleep. It can be a day where she has an engagement for that day. She may have something at 8 – then we’re going at 6.
Khloe Exercises for Sanity
Is it all about looks? Apparently not. Khloe has used exercise as a way to heal, function better, and destress. After the tragic overdose of her estranged husband Lamar Odom, fitness became a way to deal with the uncontrollable stressors in her life.
Mentally, it took its toll on me,” says Kardashian, who didn’t leave Odom’s hospital room for weeks. “But for the first month, I wasn’t even really thinking about that. It wasn’t about me. But once I started getting my feet back under me a little bit, I was like, oh my God, I need to get back to my routine.
Khloe works out almost everyday which includes 5 days a week with trainer Gunner Peterson. Gunner keeps the works new and interesting while challenging her body in different ways each day. Some days they will do a HIIT based workout, while other days they may only be focusing on lower body. Peterson emphasizes using weights as a way to boost Khloe Kardashian’s weight loss. They also throw in a day of boxing to mix up her routine.
Weight Loss Tips From Khloe Kardashian
So what’s her big secret to fitness and weight loss? Cut the crap and excuses! Meaning she doesn’t let lack of time and her crazy schedule stand in the way of her health. She snacks on fresh cut vegetables, and fresh fruit instead of her past junk food binges. Khloe also stocks her fridge full of these items so there’s “No excuse,” for not eating healthy.
While she doesn’t deprive herself of some of her favorites, (pizza and cake) she makes a point to say that she still eats a slice of cake now and again, she just doesn’t eat two!
Trainer Gunner Peterson adds that Khloe Kardashian’s weight loss isn’t from exercise alone, she’s made huge life changes to stay on track and to continue to change.
As the changes have come, the diet has tightened up,” says Peterson. “You can’t out-train a bad diet, and you can’t out-diet a bad lifestyle. She’s made better choices when she eats. She’s been more conscious about working on sleep habits. She hydrates better.”
