Cover

Leeann Tweeden photographed by Arny Freytag

With our Hard Bodies pictorial we've just made this summer hotter. Personifying this month's theme of sports and sex is buff beauty Leeann Tweeden on ESPN's Fitness Beach (if you need a quick fix on the small screen). Her ultimate goal is the movies. Our cover was shot by Contributing Photographer Arny Freytag and styled by Traci Marmon. Thanks to Alan Bosshardt for styling Leeann's hair and makeup. Our exercised Rabbit appreciates this body of art.
