THE SEARCH FOR OUR NEWEST USN FACE OF FITNESS IS WELL UNDERWAY. By the time you read this letter we would have announced the final six ladies who will compete for the coveted spot on our cover and that highly prized USN ambassadorship. But it's not all about winning – not even close! Many of the most well-known South African fitness models can attest to that.

And you can forget about that hectic cardio session at the gym because of what the sweat might do to your artwork. Yes, we know it sounds neurotic, but this is the sad reality for many women.
