    Following is a transcript of the video:
    Melissa Alcantara: What we've been working on for the past almost year is just kind of the training method that I do. And it's the same training method that I use for Kim. It's mostly about eating. I mean, people think it's in the exercise, but if you're not eating right consistently, then it's just never going to happen. You know, her diet has come a long way and has changed a lot in terms of just eliminating processed foods and just getting her to eat real food. So if it comes in a box, if it didn't grow off a tree or the earth didn't give it to you, then just stay away from it. Fresh foods, unprocessed foods, and only water.
    As for the workouts, I would do something that's mixed, so that there's weight training, there's high-intensity interval training and there's steady state cardio. For now, you know I train Kim consistently. Sometimes I train her sisters Khloe and Kourtney.
    Kim Kardashian: She's even Snapchatting on my workout with Melissa. I give her the privilege of working out with her one time.
    Alcantara: I honestly, I just love her. She's also like one of the best clients that you could ever have. She doesn't cancel. She's always there.
    Kardashian: This is what I'm doing today.
    Alcantara: A lot of our sessions are at 6 a.m. I wake up at 4. So we train about five, six days a week. It ranges from an hour to an hour and a half. We do a lot of squats, deadlifts, chest press, overhead press, a ton, a ton of sprints. We do pull-ups, dips, but I would say that 85% of our training is weight training. You have to put the work in. You have to be intense, you have to struggle with every rep and feel it. It doesn't mean that you're gonna be Arnold and get huge.
    Kardashian: You guys, she's trying to kill me.
    Alcantara: Only a little bit.
    Kardashian: Officially trying to kill me.
    Alcantara: In the beginning, you know, I was sitting on my couch. I had gained 70 pounds with my daughter and I saw this infomercial for Insanity, which is a home workout program. And I saw these people's transformations. And I packed up all my food, I never cheated, only drank water, never missed a workout and 60 days later, I was 40 pounds lighter. I decided I wanted to do a bodybuilding competition in December of 2015. I won first place in Miss Figure and Miss Physique and that's when Kim contacted me. So she saw my transformation picture on Instagram. She was like scrolling through Instagram at 4 o'clock in the morning and she was like, "Wow, this woman, she's a Mom. She lives a regular life. Look at how she changed her life." She was looking for something that was sustainable. She didn't want to just lose weight fast and then you know, gain it again. It's a lifestyle.
    I had no expectations of becoming a celebrity trainer. I'm not thinking, "Oh yeah, I'm going to train Oprah tomorrow." I just hope that they get the results they're looking for. And every time she sees a new muscle growing or new lines, new definition -
    Kardashian: Do you guys see my muscles?
    Alcantara: The look on her face just makes me like super excited for her, because I know exactly what that feels like.
    Kardashian: Hamstrings, my favorite.
    Alcantara: Yeah, except that you're doing it with that bar.
    Kardashian: Oh, she has the light bar. This is what I'm doing.
    Alcantara: Exactly.

    1) Actors and celebrities take anabolics and have surgeries, do crash diets and don’t maintain the shape beyond the shooting. Digital effects also help. Then they aren’t shy to attribute it to “workout” and “hard work”.
    2) Actors are preselected based on attractiveness. No amount of working out will give you with your average genetics and responsiblitities“that booty” or “that v-taper”. Certainly not if you copy a celebrity workout tailored to them. Which is often made up anyway;-)

    To be fair, I think if we had the same financial means as this family does we would also get some help from cosmetic surgery...I know women who go into debt to get cosmetic surgery....with that said, you can’t fake a fit healthy body and these women figured that out too somehow and that’s why they all started to work out. A fit life won’t make us look like a goddess but it will def help us look better.

    I don't think there is even a discussion about Kim's body; there is plastic surgery involved. But how about we all take a second and focus on the trainer! Her transformation was natural and she looks amazing. Thats my take away from this video- I can never look like Kim, but I can one day get on the same level as Melissa

Her make-up is intact, and she’s too busy taking and posting photos of herself! She visits the plastic surgeon for her “work out”!

    It's a lifestyle. And for those who are commenting negatively, honestly, get your ass off and go out there and do it. There is a ton of information online today, and teach yourself anything if you really wanted. Stop complaining and focusing on other people, and nagging how much money they have, and what it can buy them. You too can have a lot of money, but you must know how to achieve it. Money is a strategy, you must manifest it with your energy. So ask yourself, what energy and thoughts am I thinking that I still don't have what I want? And bashing others will never get you what you want.

Especially after having a child, she looks AMAZING and she provided such great tips! She’s my motivation!

    People complaining that Kim’s had plastic surgery are confusing appearance with fitness. Yes she may have had work done, but that has nothing to do with how fit she is. She looks a lot more fit now than she has in recent years and money can’t buy how much work you put in at the gym. Yes, money can get you the best trainer, but you ultimately have to do the work. Good for Kim for adopting a healthier lifestyle. People give her wayy too much hate.
