12 Times Khloé Kardashian Inspired Us to Work Out
Now and Then
Khloé has been taking heat for her weight for years, but haters’ have no ground to stand on any more. Last Friday, she posted this image of her unbelievable abs with a pretty inspiring caption, saying she feels healthier and happier ever since finding therapeutic value in her fitness routine two years ago. “Start small so you don’t get discouraged and give up,” she advises. And while she adds that her enjoyment comes from sweating out her frustrations and not for how she looks, we’ll happily find inspiration in this transformation photo.
It's a Cinch
That waist! Khloé attributes her new curves to a waist shaper, just like the one Kim wore to slim down for her wedding. But, while her whittled waist may look enviable in this photo, wearing a corset won't give you any permanent benefits, and can actually be harmful to your organs.

And since this was just one of many boxing photos on her feed, we can guess how those newfound abs were formed! (Try it yourself with this Kickboxing for Killer Abs routine.)

All About that Bass
Wildlife aside, we can't stop staring at Khloé's toned tush! She may attribute it to these Kardashian Kollection leggings, but we know her secret is really in those extra hours at the gym. (Or extra minutes: 12-Minute Booty-Boost Workout.)
Training Like a Pro
For this bungee run, Khloé and her trainer, Gunnar Peterson, both wore a waist belt. He anchored while she ran as far as possible, and then resisted the pull on the way back. This hardcore workout trains power, agility, quickness, and reaction time—and Khloé killed it!
