Reality star, Kim Kardashian reveals how she stays fit at Shape.com. Check out a snippet of her interview!

Workout Inspiration

“On days when I need extra motivation, I just think, Bikini, bikini, bikini!”

Her take on sweets, confidence, and cellulite

“Of course, I struggle with insecure moments. I wish I didn’t. But I love to eat! Especially sweets. And I’ll say it, I think my thighs are jiggly and I have cellulite. Now let’s move on! Because when I put the time in at the gym, I’m confident. You have to feel good to look good.”

Celebrities that Inspire Her

“Growing up, I saw only skinny models and didn’t relate. Salma Hayek and Jennifer Lopez prove you can be curvy and proud!”

Early Morning Workout

“If I don’t start my day working out, I feel so lazy. Even if I have a 15 hour a day, working out makes me feel so accomplished. And I like to do it in the morning.”

Dress for your Body Type

“Find the one part of your body that you love and accentuate it. For example, because I have a small waist, a big butt and thin legs, belts work for me. You have to know what looks best on your body.”

Gym Time= You Time!

“My workout is the one time I can disconnect. It’s the best feeling! When I see people on the phone at the gym, I want to tell them, ‘This is your hour to be selfish. Take it!’”

Kim Kardashian also works with celebrity trainer Kathy Kaehler to get her curves, but here’s a few tips you can easily do at home for better health.

Step 1. Do some Cardio

Kim Kardashian always does some-form of cardio, but when she’s preparing for a shoot, she steps up her training. Try and do at least 30 minutes of cardio and make it a daily routine. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water!

Step 2. Tight Butt

Kim K. is famous for her curves and round derriere. A couple of lunges and squats should do the trick. I do 3 sets of 12 for each leg. Here’s 10 more exercises to tone your butt.

Step 3. Tone the Core

Kim’s trainer Kathy Kaethler has her do exercises that tones the core like arm and leg oppositions. With the hands and knees on the floor, move the right arm up and the left leg back, whilethe arm and the leg are both parallel to the floor. The core should be tight for at least 20-30 seconds.. Do the same with the left arm and right leg, to complete the set. Try two sets of 10 repetitions.

Step 4. Toned Arms

Do pushups (knee bent or plank) and say bye-bye to flabby arms. Three sets of 10 should suffice. For triceps, I like to use a chair and do dips by standing in front of it. Try two sets of 10.
