Rob Kardashian’s decision to ditch Kim Kardashian’s wedding was initially attributed to concerns about his weight, although recent Facebook rumors suggest that there was far more family drama at play. No matter the reason for his hasty retreat, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is still working hard to shed those extra pounds.
Over the course of the past year, Rob Kardashian has been struggling to lose weight. The reality star has taken on a rather ambitious workout routine, but he’s still finding it difficult to slim down. Fortunately, he has a great advocate: celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson.
In a recent interview with People, Gunnar explained that, despite all the nasty criticism on Twitter, Rob really has been working hard to adopt a healthier lifestyle. “We’re doing intervals with strength movements: squats, the sled, swings and push presses. It’s about getting his heart rate up and keeping it up.”
Although Rob’s goal is to lose a significant amount of weight, Gunnar is not eager to track his progress with a scale. “I’m not big on measurements. Until a person looks in the mirror and is happy with themselves, you have not reached your fitness goals.”
Gunnar adds that, in spite of stereotypes suggesting that it’s easier for celebrities to shed weight, access to a personal trainer does not necessarily turn the process into a cake walk. Between his sock line and continued family drama, Rob is super busy and thus, not always capable of making it to the gym. Still, Gunnar thinks that, with hard work, the reality star can definitely achieve a slimmer physique.
