Khloé Kardashian found solace — and her newly slimmed-down figure — by working up a sweat in the gym after her split from ex-husband Lamar Odom. Now the reality star is enlisting the help of Hollywood’s go-to trainers and doctors to help 16 other people reach their fitness and weight-loss goals. In the first look of Kardashian’s new show, Revenge Body With Khloé Kardashian, the Strong Looks Better Naked author, 32, talks about her lifelong struggle with her weight.

“I was always overweight as a kid,” Kardashian says in the clip. “If I was sad or stressed out, I would eat. I had to learn how to then put all of my energy into something positive and healthy for me, which is how I fell in love with working out. I feel like this journey will do the same for you.”

Revenge Body follows 16 women and men who want to lose weight and achieve their goals. With the help of Hollywood trainers such as Gunnar Peterson, Luke Milton, Harley Pasternak, Corey Calliet, Latreal Mitchell, Simone De La Rue, Jorge Cruise and Lacey Stone, the participants shed sweat and tears while undergoing Kardashian-approved workouts and makeovers. 

“The first two or three weeks you are working out so hard, you are busting your ass … and you’re like, ‘What the f--k?’ Sometimes you gain weight because you’re now gaining muscle. … It’s not about a weight number,” Kardashian says in the clip. “It’s about how you feel. Everything that I’m picking for [them], it’s personal for them and their journey. … You’re going to start to transform your body and you're going to have this revenge … let's make our haters our biggest motivators.” 

The six-episode first season will include “makeovers of scorned exes looking for the ultimate transformation, inside and out,” a press release explained last December. Kardashian added in the release: “Looking great is always the best revenge. It’s so exciting to be able to mentor these people through their full-body makeovers, and I can’t wait to see the incredible results at their final reveals!”

Revenge Body With Khloé Kardashian premieres on E! at 8 p.m. on January 12. Watch the sneak peek above.
