She Paddleboards

Stand up paddleboarding really works your core, as Bure knows. Try it. "You can SUP just about anywhere and at any level, from elite level athlete racing to beginner classes and personal instruction at local parks. If there's a body of water, you're likely to find a SUP workout class or rental company nearby. Or you can buy or rent your own online or at just about any outdoor recreation store," says ACE Fitness.


Exercise Gets Her Endorphins Going

"Just sweating that out and all those endorphins really help me a lot. I notice a huge difference when I don't exercise, how much it can affect me mentally and kind of deal with depression," she said, according to Prevention. "That's why I keep going. There are a lot of benefits I get. My mind is most important, and exercise definitely helps that."


Health and Fitness Have Always Been a Part of Her Life

"Health and fitness have always been a big part of my life, even growing up, especially growing up in front of the cameras," she told Livestrong. "But what changed is I found my enjoyment for health and fitness probably when I hit my thirties. So it was something that was always a part of my life, but it always felt more like a struggle and like, oh, I, I have to go work out today. Or, you know, I can't, I shouldn't eat this, I can't eat this and I should be eating this and it was always kind of a downer in a way. And then it doesn't hurt to be married to a professional athlete so my husband was always very encouraging because fitness obviously has been a huge part of his life and career."


Find the Kinds of Exercises You Love

"In my thirties, I finally found the types of exercises that I really liked. And then especially having had my children, I felt so many changes in my body and then finding fitness that really worked for me and then made a difference for me physically and mentally was a game changer. Growing up. I always thought, oh, I have to go to a gym and I have to get on the treadmill or the StairMaster. And it was so boring. Like I hated it, but I would just plug away at my 45 minutes on a machine. And then when I found classes, not necessarily at my gym, but like spin class and Pilates and barre class, I realized how much I enjoyed working out with other people. I liked the energy in there and I thought, oh, these are amazing exercises and I'm not bored. And there's great music. And that's what changed everything for me. I also found out how much I loved lifting weights too. That's my favorite thing. Like I love strength training," she told Livestrong.


Work Hard but Slow Down When Necessary

Candace is spiritual. "Competing on Dancing with the Stars was unquestionably the hardest I've ever worked physically," Candace wrote in her book, Healthy In The Hustle: An Inspirational Wellness Journal. "I had to give it my all because I really didn't know how to dance. Fortunately, I was paired with a great partner, and I was willing to work my dancing shoes off, and it ended up being a great experience. It turns out, I haven't always known how to rest either. I've needed a strong Partner to walk me through the steps and teach me to flow freely with 'the unforced rhythms of grace.' The one pointer I can give you from DWTS and my journey with Jesus is, follow your Partner's lead. When He tells you to slow down, ease up…."
