Get in Shape for Your Wedding Day – Kim Kardashian wedding workout
Kimberly “Kim” Kardashian West (born Kimberly Noel Kardashian, October 21, 1980) is an American television and social media personality, socialite, and model. Her father, Robert Kardashian, was known as a defense lawyer for her godfather, football player O. J. Simpson. Her step-father is Olympic decathlon gold medal winner Bruce Jenner. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Kardashian first gained media attention through her friendship with Paris Hilton, but she received wider notice after a 2003 sex tape with her former boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007.
Later that year, she and her family were commissioned to star in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Its success has led to the creation of spin-offs including Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami. In 2010, Kardashian was reported to be the highest-paid reality television personality, with estimated earnings of $6 million.
In August 2011, Kardashian married basketball player Kris Humphries in a widely publicized ceremony. After 72 days of marriage, she filed for a divorce, which was finalized in June 2013 with an undisclosed settlement. The same month, Kardashian gave birth to a daughter, North West, from her relationship with rapper Kanye West, which began in April 2012. Kardashian and West were married in May 2014.
Kim Kardashian is famous for her gorgeous looks and killer curves, including her equally as famous oh-so-photographed sculpted derriere.
While she can clearly thank mom and dad for those good genes, the reality starlet is working hard to keep her fabulous, bodacious body in check for her upcoming wedding to NBA player Kris Humphries this weekend.
Who can blame her? Tying the knot in front of a camera crew with all of America watching (as part of a four-hour wedding special airing on E! in October), along with a bevy of A-listers attending to boot is enough to make even the most confident bride-to-be want to log in some serious gym time.
With the help of her powerhouse trainer Gunnar Peterson, who’s been working with Kardashian to keep her figure fab for the last three years, there’s no question the stunning star will be looking va-va-voom amazing in her Vera Wang come August 20.
“I think the goal is to look her best like any bride (and groom for that matter!), and to be able to withstand the stress of a wedding,” Peterson says. “In her case a wedding that will be on the world’s stage!”
Peterson, who boasts a high-profile celebrity client roster including Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez and Angelina Jolie, was inspired to become a personal trainer after being overweight as a kid.
“I learned how to control it through exercise and later through diet,” the talented trainer says. “When I found out I could actually turn it into a ‘job’, it was a no-brainer. I still love it today, 23+ years later!”
So just how did the devoted, hard-working celebrity trainer get Kim K’s bridal bod in tip-top wedding shape? “Kim’s training is based on ‘if you stay ready you never have to get ready,’” Peterson says. “She grinds in the gym year round and makes the right choices outside of the gym so the payoff is increased.”
Peterson has been working with Kardashian 3 to 5 days per week, depending on the busy star’s schedule. While her workouts were essentially the same as previous routines, they were a “little quicker paced”.
With all the buzz surrounding Kardashian’s upcoming nuptials, it’s no wonder why future brides from all over the world are finding inspiration for their big day in Peterson’s workouts.
“Don’t starve yourself. Try to get your rest so that your body can recover from your workouts, and so that your immune system is firing on all cylinders,” advises Peterson. “You don’t need to be rundown while you walk down the aisle!”
The good news is that you don’t have to be a blushing bride-to-be to benefit your body with Kim Kardashian’s wedding workout. Here, Peterson gives us the scoop on her fitness routine!
