"Slay all day baby!" she said while working out on the elliptical machine. In her caption, she wrote, "Guess What Time It is Y'all! And guess where I'm going!"

The Winter Games begin February 8 and NBC will have more than 2,400 hours of programming, including livestreams and primetime events (adjusted for the 14-hour time difference).

Jim Bell, President, NBC Olympics Production and Programming, commented: "Experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else".
