Khloe welcomed daughter True Thompson four months ago with boyfriend Tristan Thompson. She says that she returned to the gym 6 weeks after giving birth, but she admits that it did take her time to go back to her routine.
“The first day, I could not do the most simple things. I was out of breath. It was just different. And I kind of felt really defeated. Like, ‘Oh man. I don’t know if I can do this,’” she said. “After the first week I was like, ‘Okay. I am feeling a little better.’ I am not breathing so hard. I don’t need as many breaks. But I would say really after three weeks was when I felt good.”
“You’re f—ing tired,” she said about motherhood. “I just said to my sisters [Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West], ‘How do you have more than one kid?’ I am exhausted. I am taking the [baby] monitor to the garage, I am trying to get [workouts] in. And it is hard. It is really hard. And you’re just tired. Your hormones are different. It is just a mindf—-!”
The new mom has reportedly already lost 33 pounds since giving birth and she more determined than ever to get her body back, according to her personal trainer Gunnar Peterson.
“She definitely gets it,” the trainer shares. “She gets the blueprint. She gets the template. She was with me for years, nonstop, every single day.”
“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 Weekly. “She’s motivated to be fit and to get back to a smaller size than before she got pregnant.”
In July she told fans on her app: “I want to get back to my regular routine from before I got pregnant, which was work out five to six times a week.”
The trainer told Us Weekly: “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.”
“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.”
“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.”
