celebrity series #9: KUWTK

Ok ok ok ok.

I have never seen the show, but I did spend last summer obsessively Googleing the Tristan/Khloe saga + rumours of Kourtney wanting to leave the family and go live on a farm.

So I don’t know a lot of their history or why you might hate them (Kim seems nice?) or why you might love them (Kim seems nice!).

But I do know this: they #werk.

Sure, you might have opinions about their bodies but 1) are you really judging someone’s body right now? and 2) you cannot argue with Kim’s trainer, Melissa Alcantara, famously known on Instagram as @fitgurlmel.

Mel has a real rags-to-riches story. She openly talks about not having the money to buy much of anything, let alone an iPod when she was younger. Fast forward to today and she is one of the featured trainers on Apple’s app, Fitplan (YAY MEL!).

Mel transformed herself after her pregnancy, Kim found her on instagram and asked her to be her trainer, and the rest is history.

I researched all the girls workouts (with equally legit trainers) and broke them down into what they seem to prefer (full body, abs, cardio, etc).

The playlist — is a playlist from put together for Khloe’s “Revenge Body” show (also have not seen but I Stan for Khloe and what she’s gone through — did I use “Stan” correctly?).

– 2 bath towels for battle rope
– chair
