    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.

    Can the majority of the people in the comments section not pay so much attention to Kim & her figure and instead embrace the accomplishments and the lifestyle ‘THE TRAINER’ has changed to get the figure she has today. 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.

    Kim doesn’t work out she’s plastic. Yea I’m sure she works out at times, but Kim doesn’t have that body because of only doing workouts. Let’s get that straight. This is like false advertisement.

    You cannot say someone didnt want to just lose the weight quick and easy if the part of the shedding was liposuction and a tuck. Thats a cheat. If I go and have this baby, lose about 50 lbs then go and get mommy makeover, I have gotten a quick short cut to my ultimate goal. I support surgery and naturally. But lets not be deceptive. Her sister Kylie caused a HUGE lip injection boost from first being deceptive.

    Lol I'm sure she workouts a little bit. Her arms and legs are somewhat toned but her waist and butt and boobs are all fake or manipulated. Liars. Still, if you're dumb enough to believe she's natural, your the problem. Some girls really believe she's natural and strive for her figure....use your brain ladies 😔

    Okay for people who don’t know NOT ALL COSMETIC SURGERIES ARE PLASTIC you don’t have to put plastic in your butt and boobs!! You can transfer fat that’s already in your body to other places aka boob or butt or you can have the fat in your body taken out to have a flatter appeal so no she is not full of plastic

  • Freyja Andersson

    She is not fit. Is just a compilation of Surgeries and its clear to the naked eye and everybody with some common sense. Showing her as model of something attainable with just working out without mentioning all the surgery to change her shape is straight up wrong.

    They say fit but it never looks like her body is physically changing lol theres no muscle being built anywhere, her legs and calves constantly look skinny as well as her arms. I wonder if she tries to actually activate her muscles or if she is just doing it blandly for the videos.

    Thank you Kim for being out there with your body and making it okay to look the way you look.
    My body is so so similar to Kim's shape wise, the only real difference is that my boobs are tiny. When I was growing up being straight up and down and really thin were in fashion. No matter how thin I get I will not look like that, Kim made me feel okay for looking the way I do and I'm so grateful.
    And no I haven't had work done, I can't afford it haha

    You're not going to look like Kim if you just eat healthy and excercise. You have to have the money to get plastic surgery and fake boobs and butt implants. Her body is not 100% real. They should definitely mention something about that part. People are probably watching this thinking that if they just workout and change their diet that they can get Kim's body. It's unrealistic. They should put a price tag on all her fake body parts so you know how much money you'll have to spend as well.

They knew that there are some dummies out in the world that'll easily fall for it.... THIS IS THEIR REAL SECRET: PHOTOSHOP, FACETUNE, & SURGERIES.....
    Tbh, they look like rectangles in person, so they r promoting a figure not everyone(including them) have...

    I love a girl who works out. But kim Kardashian’s body is weird looking and not naturally achievable. her legs are so much smaller than her glutes it looks like she is wearing a diaper. Honestly if you don’t want to work hard, or physically can achieve your goals, just takes steroids. At least when your of the cycle you’ll look more natural than when using fat injections. lol jk. Don’t take steroids, or use fat injections. Just be the best version of yourself. Work hard, and eat lots of chicken.

    She may have had plastic surgery- but she also does exercise and diet because she’s always scrutinised by people like you lot for her body. You need to workout to maintain your surgeries also. It’s funny how people in the comment section always feel the need to make fun of her- when in reality they hide behind a screen sending hate comments out of jealousy- it’s also sad that it’s women putting other women down.
