Mum does heavy lift­ing

Herald Sun - Switched On - - ON THE BOX -

Ask Khloe Kar­dashian’s per­sonal trainer and guest star on her new TV series, Re­venge Body who the real mus­cle is be­hind the makeover show and Gun­nar Peter­son is clear.

“Kris Jen­ner is the ul­ti­mate Guip­petto,” Peter­son says of Khloe’s mother and man­ager, in a ref­er­ence to the pup­peteer from famed chil­dren’s tale, Pinoc­chio.

“She’s lived the Amer­i­can dream, she made her own dreams come true and as a mum, peo­ple are like, ‘She did this to her kids, she did that to her kids’ … you know what she did? She helped all of her kids live out their dreams.”

The fit­ness guru, who counts Jen­nifer Lopez, An­gelina Jolie and most of the Kar­dashi­ans as clients, also drew di­rec­tion from his mother when it came to his ca­reer.

“Ini­tially I started work­ing out be­cause I was chubby. I was the fat kid. I was in Weight Watch­ers when I was 10 years old.

“My mum would take me to meet­ings and I got into the ex­er­cise part on a reg­u­lar ba­sis in col­lege, but there was also na­chos and beer at col­lege. After that I got into the nu­tri­tion side of it and was dili­gent with the work­outs.”

Peter­son be­lieves Re­venge Body shows get­ting into shape is some­thing ev­ery­one can do, with or with­out a big bud­get.

“Rich and fa­mous, or poor and in­fa­mous, if they’re in there [the gym] and there have been changes made, it’s be­cause they’ve worked. Your tax bracket doesn’t en­ti­tle you to a good body, that’s for sure.” / HOLLY BYRNES
