About Body Beautiful SA

The foundation for Body Beautiful SA was laid by mother and daughter, Hayley & Lauren-Leigh Porter. After entering and winning her very first fitness pageant, Miss Fitness SA, Lauren was given the amazing opportunity to represent South Africa at the Bikini America & Fitness Universe Pageant in Hollywood. She competed against 174 of the top bikini models from all over the World and she returned to South Africa with the Bikini America title. It was then that the fire of passion for the fitness industry was ignited in her heart and she wanted to create a platform for athletes to step on stage and showcase their hard work and be rewarded for it.

With FIBO and Body Beautiful partnering up this year, you can expect nothing less than a spectacular extravaganza.
