Khloé Kardashian is looking sexier than ever — thanks to her fierce dedication and hard work!

“Khloé gives as much to the gym as the gym gives to her,” her trainer Gunnar Peterson tells PEOPLE. “She’s in love with fitness.”

Peterson has been working with the reality star, 31, for three years, and he says she doesn’t skip workouts.

“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.”

I missed @gunnarfitness and this place!!!

Earlier this year Kardashian told PEOPLE she works out “almost every day,” including five-day-a-week, hour-long sessions with Peterson, who constantly switches up their methods.

“There is no typical routine,” he says. Their workouts incorporate “different intervals mixed up, whether it’s the motion of the interval or the duration of the interval or the intensity of the interval.”

“Some days it’s more heart-rate-intensive, some days it’s more lower-extremities-intensive, some days the upper extremities get a little extra love,” says the celebrity trainer, who says he uses bigger movements rather than isolated movements to tone up muscles.

Kardashian often shares photos of their intense workouts on Instagram; in many of them she lifts heavy weights.

“You have to challenge your body with an external load,” says Peterson, explaining why weight-lifting is essential to weight loss.

Gym work!!! #Fitness

Peterson also incorporates boxing into their routine.

“[Boxing is] great for the heart rate, great for hand-to-eye, great for balance,” says Peterson. “It’s good for your body to contract upon impact.”

But Kardashian’s 35-lb. weight loss didn’t come from fitness sessions alone. In addition to her discipline in the gym, she’s made major lifestyle changes.

“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.”

And while she’s lost a significant amount of weight, Kardashian shows no signs of stopping.

“She keeps getting after it and she keeps getting better,” says Peterson. “We’re always playing with [our workouts]; we’re always making it that much more challenging.”

She could lose 55 pounds and still look like Chewbacca.

Mel on

She looks beautiful ! Haters gonna hate , hate ,hate , hate ,hate! Looking good girl!

Bettie003 on

Big feat, she’s 30 years old, has a trainer, and probably a private chef.

dms on

I was a personal trainer and she did not lose 35 pounds. She would look significantly smaller than she did if she lost that much weight and she doesn’t look that small. I don’t know why they have to lie.

Annie on

Please no more Kardashians PLEASE.

Isa on

And the 35 pounds miraculously went to her ass.

In hale

Ellymae10 on

Bettie003…I can’t afford a trainer or a private chef, but I made significant changes in my diet and I added more workouts throughout the week. I’ve lost 21 pounds since January. If a person is determined to lose the weight and put in the time, it can be done without a trainer or private chef.

Emily on

She looks great!

I don’t understand all the negatives toward this girl. First she’s too fat and now that she’s lost 35 lbs she’s still too fat???? I don’t think anyone living a healthier lifestyle should be ridiculed even if their last name is Kardashian. Some people need to take a look in the mirror before they go trashing other people.

aabbcc on

“On days when she hasn’t had much sleep”??? WTF?? She has no JOB, she can sleep all damn day.

Celebsarah on

Enough, PEOPLE!!! This article about Khloe losing weight has been repackaged 25 different ways for months now. I’d honestly rather come to your site and see a blank spot waiting for actual NEWS than see another repackaged article about this trashy, narcissistic family.

stylishlyinlove on

She looks amazing. You can tell her hard work in that dress she wore at her sister’s 18th birthday. Great job!


cory on

she doesn’t skip workouts. well she doesn’t have a job so what else does she have to do all day?

Just saying.. on

“She’s in love with fitness”…she’s also in love with herself just like the rest of that trashy family. How many times can People mag recycle the same story?

Sandra on

@ Bettie003, yes its called taking advantage of your advantages. She probably has all of those things and more and it wouldn’t mean anything if she didn’t have the drive and determination to get up everyday and get it done.

Truth staring at you on

The story actually supports the truth left out. She’s using drugs people.

Anonymous on

Lol @ wookie

Kate on

Slow news day?? Certainly you can come up with something better than this??

Kim on

I don’t know HOW she does it!! She has to be at her desk job at 7:45 everyday, leave early if or when on of the kids gets sick, if there’s car trouble….
Seriously? While Khloezilla may have lost 35 pounds and looks healthier? If we all had her life, we would too. Besides, shes still one of THEM. I’ll stay me, 15 lbs overweight.

Gabby on

Why the hate people? She has the money to have a trainer and a chef? So be it. .. I’m not a fan of the Kardashians but I admit she looks much better and it’s also probably part of her job the fact that she needs to take care of herself. Everybody can lose weight if they commit to it, with or without trainer & chef… Life is not fair, so not everybody can have it the same way.

Brittany on

If y’all can’t accept this family just stop making comments because they are NEVER going away. They are very beautiful, smart, and wealthy. She look really good! He entire family looks great! If you all would take notice and get your own house in order, you would be successful too. It takes hard work and dedication!

huh on

Smith machine is one of the most ineffective machines to use in the gym, next to the elliptical. Figures she would be using one.

Anonymous on

She does look great…but 35 lbs seems a bit of a stretch. If its true she must have regained some weight in previous years because there have been several articles touting her weight loss. Or perhaps its been 35lbs over a series of years.

In any case – I don’t how Gunnar gets any rest himself. He seems to work with everyone. And yes Khloe – you look amazing! Good for you!

Anonymous on

She’s still a slob.

sally on

who cares….she’s a whore.

donnasfineart on

I agree with @dsm in order to loose 35 lbs it would have to have shown up SOMEWHERE! Her butt is the size of 2 of mine?! Is there ever a week where the K’s don’t have a so called “Latest News”? Enough fibs already Ms. K, K, K, K, and oh K….

peachy on

“You have to challenge your body with an external load,” says Peterson, explaining why weight-lifting is essential to weight loss.”.

Heavy duty weight lifting like that is just stupid. Leads to spinal damage, and it has been shown that walking burns off more fat. Slow and steady wins the race.

CincySweet on

Khloe looks great! Her hard work has paid off.

I would love to train with Gunnar. He whips a lot of celebs into shape.

Faye on

Who cares?

Sara on

I’m sorry. But she has one big wide booty for someone who’s lost 35 pounds. She should brag about weight loss when she does it, and on her own. Not with a trainer and a cook helping her along.

kate on

Id be more impressed if it was her brother….

Tay on

Oh, how exciting, secretas sare revealed. LOL.
Here’s a free tip, just try the Loaded Gun Diet, you can eat whatever you want just a bitg less.
Don’t listen to the Cardashians.

huh on

First of all she’s a meaty girl regardless how much weight she has “lost” (sure she has), secondly: If she was truly losing weight it would be all over not just stomach. She should give how many inches she has lost not weight. her a$$ still HUGE.

Oinker on

Khloe is going to be voted most beautiful people of 2015.
I know it. She’ just so delicious……
After all looks are the only things that matter.
You don’t have to have a brain, manners, a job, talent, skills or any of that
other stuff that normal people identify with.

dawn on

Not to mention lipo suction

sandy on

Just put away the huge knockers and she’d look great

Kris Baker on

No Kartrashian has EVER done anything ethical. They don’t abide by the rules. No doubt some sort of cheating was involved to lose any weight.

Tammy on

Khloe is my fave of the entire crew and she is gorgeous. Good for her

lilly pond on

They are all pigs……the whole karTRASHians/Jenner clan. Please go away.

Shadows on

Why is it the women are always working out? Where’s fattbutt Rob? If he takes a session with each female in that family who works out, then he would be a lot smaller and not so chunky monkeyish. Crying like a faatbiittcchh because his sisters are smaller.

The Free Woman on

she’s pretty! I just wish she did this for herself and not as revenge to her haters. Thats really sad when we women feel the need to do something to prove to others that we are better than them.

Tammy on

She was always a beautiful girl, no matter what her size. However, she looks incredible now. The changes she has made not only show in her figure but her overall appearance. She looks super healthy. There are a lot of people that are criticizing Khloe because she has a life of privilege, and while I would agree that it would make a tremendous difference to have the wealth to afford a private trainer, chef, stylist and whatever else helps the process along, it still takes the individual to commit to eating a certain way and putting in the hours at the gym to accomplish the goal.

Guest on

She looks terrific. Good for her. Trainer or no trainer, transforming your body like that is tough.

Alia on

She’s a good weight but she’s tall and big-boned, so she’s always gonna look bigger than a petite, small-boned woman. Which is why I don’t understand why she wears so much make-up! Sometimes she looks like the transgenders on “I am Cait” show. She would look so much prettier with less make-up on, or at least more fresh-face type makeup.

mourningautumn on

He has been working with her for three year and she has only lost 35 pounds even though she works out for an hour five days a week?

Anonymous on

Where is the mention of Adderral & cocaine for her weight loss

eusebio manuel vestias pecurto on

Good job Ms Khloe I love you

Roxanne on

Great Job!
Yes, the Kardashians may not have the greatest reputation but they did work hard for everything they have. They have money from owning and running clothing, makeup, tanning, and reality shows. They have jobs and they have to market themselves. That is a full time job especially to keep up with the ever changing world of fashion, and tanning.
Not everyone is into looking into every single detail about the Kardashians because they all want to read short drama articles about the latest horrible news.
They are all books that we are judging by the cover. They work hard and are striving to be the best that they can be. Khloe is probably my favorite of them all, but they are all humble for everything they have.
You go girl!!!

She looks wonderful! Good for her.

She looks awesome! Haters suck.

first off when you lose weight for those who obviously don’t know you lose all over especially with cardio your not going to lose weight in just one area why is that before when she was “chubbier” she wasn’t showing off her behind but now she is it wasn’t big that’s why but since lets keep it real she had more help other than a trainer now she’s taking butt pics and all that now but a lot of celebs do that they get help in areas and act like they did naturally by going to the gym even some women I know who aren’t rich and went to another country to get work done

Margarite Glenna on

That’s great! but I am so in Love with Lyfe Tea! I lost 17 pounds last month drinking it and working out! Love it! it is all natural and it worked. I got mine at
