When it comes to celebrities who take their health and fitness *very* seriously, Kim Kardashian pretty much tops the list. The longtime KUWTK star, 38, is constantly working out in her home gym — must be nice, huh? — alongside personal trainer Melissa Alcantara.
Here’s the thing, though, not everyone exactly has access to Kim’s, er, wealth … and therefore, can’t hire a personal trainer or have exercise equipment at home. Enter: The beauty of social media. Kim took to Instagram on Tuesday, September 24, to share her rigorous morning regime with followers to replicate at home.
While the KKW Beauty mogul didn’t specify the exact time she and Melissa, 34, began working out, in the past, Kim usually starts getting her sweat at the crack of dawn.
During this particular session, the SKIMS founder filmed Melissa doing a series of very intense exercises including burpees, kettlebell swings and mountain climbers.
Of course, because Melissa is a professional and Kim works out daily, we recommend building up to their routine — otherwise, be prepared to feel seven different kinds of sore!
Now, we know what you might be thinking, “How the heck does she motivate herself to go so hard?” Well, as it happens, a lot of Kim’s drive to take care of her body comes from fame.
“I do have cellulite. I am photographed all the time. For me, I always use it as motivation even when people are really unjustly critical,” Kim told PEOPLE in an interview published on September 11. “I just use it as motivation. I want to just work harder to figure out why I am feeling that way.”
Kim then went on to detail an instance in 2017 while she was vacationing in Mexico with girlfriends. “A few years ago, I was photographed and I had cellulite on my thighs … I was like, ‘OK, I do not like how I look. I am going to get to the gym,'” she recalled.
As hard Kim works, however, she knows it’s important to be kind to yourself. “You’re never going to be perfect. I think life is about being happy and being confident.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, girl!
