Liesl Laurie – Miss SA 2015

Radio presenter Liesl Laurie is sure enjoying getting fit and healthy as she frequently shares funny videos of her sessions.

“What I’ve learnt over the past couple of months is that Goals are individual. Not universal. Just because someone can run farther, lift heavier, go longer, doesn’t mean your effort isn’t valid. So work hard for you and your own goals. Trust me, progress will come”, she captioned one of her videos.
