Being a beauty queen more than just face value.

If you thought being a beauty queen is easy, think again. Joining pageants is a lot of hard work, and Ara Arida is a testament to this. She pours in a lot of work into working out. “I used to join marathons,” she says of the workouts she did when preparing for a pageant. Of course she makes it look like joining marathons is so easy. But even when she’s not preparing for a pageant, Ara still maintains a pretty stringent workout routine, going to the gym three or four times a week. And it clearly pays off: “Being fit and always working out helps me to be more confident, and it makes me happy all the time.” Watch the video below and see Ara’s steamy workout in action.
