Khloé Kardashian is getting back to the workout grind. The Revenge Body star says she’s already lost 33 pounds since welcoming daughter True on April 12 — and she’s about to slim down and shape up even more with celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson.
“I’m going to see her in a couple weeks,” the fitness expert tells Us Weekly.
The pro, who has helped transform the denim designer’s physique for more than five years, tells Us Kardashian has already started working hard on her fitness. “She definitely gets it,” Peterson says. “She gets the blueprint. She gets the template. She was with me for years, nonstop, every single day.”
The 34-year-old’s hard work is paying off. “Khloé looks and feels great. She is eating well and is working out really hard already. She does a real hour of workout a day,” a source tells Us. “She’s motivated to be fit and to get back to a smaller size than before she got pregnant.”
Since giving birth to her first daughter, the reality star has revved up her workouts with her other longtime trainer, Don Brooks, founder of the high intensity Don-A-Matrix method.
Now, she’s ready to take her #fitgoals next level. As she told fans on her app July 12, “[I want to] get back to my regular routine from before I got pregnant, which was work out five to six times a week.”
Peterson tells Us that he has clients like Kardashian perform rigorous “cardio or high intensity intervals.”
As the fitness guru tells Us, that might include “a StairMaster HIIT-mill, where it’s at 11 percent incline, a StairMaster UB which is an upper body one, a straight run on a treadmill or toe touches to a step with a medicine overhead. We do that for 30 seconds, 45 seconds, 60 seconds or up to two minutes — bang, bang, bang, bang, bang — then switch it back. We repeat anywhere from seven to 12 movements two to four times through.”
Kardashian, who has been posting super sporty pics of herself in chic athleisure ensembles on Instagram, will be heading to Peterson’s Beverly Hills studio to complete her sweat sessions: The fitness pro says he prefers his clients come to him because it makes them work out harder. “Everybody comes here. I think it’s good for people sometimes to get out of their own environments — there are less distractions,” he explains. “When you come in here you know what you’re going to do. If you’re on the clock it’s finite. You’re in. You’re out. You’re going to make use of every minute.”
Peterson also stresses the role that diet plays in creating and maintaining a healthy body to his clients. “I encourage them to go see our [in-house] nutritionist so it’s not me doing the broad stroke diet plan,” the trainer tell Us. “He actually looks at your blood and is telling you from a macro-nutrients standpoint what your body processes well and handles well, how and when you should eat what and how much.”
