AceShowbiz - Kim Kardashian has paid tribute to her personal trainer in a series of bikini shots, in which she shows off her spectacular form. The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star took to Instagram this weekend (ends April 15) to share the stunning photos, displaying her slender torso in different two beachwear outfits.
The brunette beauty thanked trainer Melissa Alcantara for helping her stay motivated and disciplined enough to maintain her trim physique.
"Shout out to my trainer @fitgurlmel who really changed my body," she captioned the images. "When I wasn’t happy with what I saw back in the mirror, I spent a whole year training so hard - five or six days a week - putting in a lot of work and changed the way that I (ate)."
The 37-year-old mum-of-three noted how intense her workouts with the fitness guru were and how the process of transforming her body has increased her confidence.
"There's such a noticeable difference," she added. "I am firm and (there's) less cellulite and (I'm) so much more confident. SO THANK YOU for waking up at 5 a.m. to do crazy body building workouts and sprints that I hate and putting me on to this lifestyle."

The mother of three then shared several more sexy photos, including one of herself relaxing on the beach with a ball cap and another in which she sports a hot pint bikini while looking into a mirror.
In a recent interview with Yahoo, Alcantara explained why she and Kardashian work so well together.
"Kim and I train pretty much the same exact way; the only difference is the weight we move, since my goals are slightly different," she said. "Kim does squats, dead lifts, lunges, barbell curls, reverse pull-ups, plyometrics, HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), steady-state cardio, and every type of gruelling work-out."
The trainer really admires her star client's determination. "Everything that Kim has in terms of her fitness level or her business, she has worked really hard for and has earned every bit of it through her efforts," she said. "Kim is my woman spirit - I fuel her fire and she fuels mine."
