As insane as the term revenge body just happens to be, we can all appreciate the dramatic and game-changing effects of a break-up bounce back that will have your ex rethinking all their life decisions. With an increased amount of time now on one’s hands, the newly heartbroken can channel their reserve of energy into planking, curl-ups, Pilates, and exacting post-workout selfies that show off a newfound six pack. Producing an overwhelming number of endorphins and a new target other than your ex’s head on a stick (we kid!), the burned soon emerge from the ashes, reborn. Lighter and freer, all excess baggage and weight seems to be dropping away, and with it, a new attitude of self-confidence begins to shine through.
Case in point? Khloé Kardashian, who took her very public divorce from ex-husband Lamar Odom as impetus to get back in the gym and make it something of her life’s work. From her self-care book, Strong Looks Better Naked to tonight’s debut of her new body makeover show, Revenge Body With Khloé Kardashian, heartbreak has proven wildly transformative—and effective. Her post-divorce glow up can hardly be ignored, especially given Kardashian’s penchant for showing off her newfound physique and confidence in any number of gym-ready ensembles. It’s inspiration enough to get back in shape, and do so with attention-grabbing style. Working up a sweat in No Ka’Oi’s Ola striped metallic sports bra and stretch jersey leggings is the perfect way to blow off steam, especially when punching into Seletti’s Boxitalia bag. Tune out negative energy with Urbanears’s Plattan 2 headphones while you race your way to clarity in Athletic Propulsion Labs x Renault Sport Formula 1 Techloom knit sneakers. Hit an extra yoga class in MM6 Maison Margiela flared sweats and soon you’ll notice you’re toning up and finding that inner peace.
