Kim Kardashian has been proudly showcasing her famous curves during her recent holiday to Turks and Caicos, and revealed that she has been putting in a lot of hard work to feel better about her body. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been working with celebrity trainer Melissa Alcantara to tone up over the past year, and revealed the lifestyle changes she has made in an Instagram post on Sunday.

Sharing a photo of herself relaxing on the beach, Kim gave credit to her personal trainer for transforming her figure. "Shout out to my trainer @fitgurlmel who really changed my body. When I wasn't happy with what I saw back in the mirror I spent a whole year training so hard 5 or 6 days a week putting in a lot of work and changed the way that I eat and there's such a noticeable difference," Kim wrote.

"I am firm and less cellulite and so much more confident. SO THANK YOU for waking up at 5am to do crazy body building workouts & sprints that I hate & putting me on to this lifestyle." Kim's trainer Melissa is a bodybuilder who has helped Kim to transform both her diet and fitness routine, focusing on eating all-natural foods and using a mix of low-intensity and high-intensity interval training with weight training to shred fat and build lean muscle. The trainer documented her own post-baby transformation on Instagram, which is how she first attracted the attention of Kim.
