The reigning Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, takes her fitness regimen very seriously. “I like to run in the park, take Rumble boxing classes and do training sessions as the gym,” the 23-year-old South African model and beauty queen tells Us. “I used to be a hockey player and have done cross-country running since middle school — being active is something that’s just in me and something I love doing to stay fit and healthy.”
She’s not kidding! Nel-Peters, who now lives in New York City and is dating Tim Tebow., typically works out six days a week. “My week usually goes Monday, a leg workout in the gym; Tuesday, cardio — running in the park; Wednesday, abs and arms; Thursday, I work in some type of cardio, usually a boxing class; Friday, I do a full body workout at the gym; Saturday, a run in the park and Sunday rest!”
Nel-Peters — who will pass on her title at the next Miss Universe competition in Bangkok, Thailand (airing Sunday, December 16 at 7 p.m. ET on Fox) — opens up her gym bag for Us.

Avoiding Hairy Situations
“I have CHI Silk Infusion that I use after a workout to tame down fly-aways. I just put it on my hair and it works like a hair mask. If I have any left on my hands, I use it as a cuticle oil, I love it! I also have a CHI Escape Cordless Curling Iron that I carry with me. It charges at home and can last for two hours. So if I have something important after, I can give my hair the serum and a quick touch up — it’s saved me many, many times.”
