Building Muscle

Weight training is a core part of Swanepoel's exercise regimen. "I'm going to start getting back into my workouts because I like to feel strong," she says. "I used to do weight training because I'm naturally lean so I like to beef up a little bit and have muscle tone on my legs and thighs."


Swimming In the Ocean

Swanepoel loves the therapeutic benefits of ocean swimming. "I have always turned to nature and travel to relax and reset myself even when I'm at home," she says. "If I'm in Brazil [where Candice lives with her family] and feeling a little bit crazy I'll go for a swim in the ocean and I feel immediately renewed."


Yoga and Resistance

Swanepoel does yoga year round, and switches up her workouts if she's training for work. "I do a lot of resistance training and yoga as well. I meditate through yoga, it helps with my breathing," she says. "I use weights to gain muscle. I would run on the beach, that's the best preparation for me, running on the beach and thick sand. It doesn't feel like I'm trapped in a gym."


Rest Days

Swanepoel makes time for rest days even when she's training hard for an event. "I will probably work out four times a week, and I'll be eating a lot of protein, just focusing on everything that goes in my body and maximizing my workouts," she says. "But also taking the time to rest in between is important. I'll work out and then have a rest day to make my body adjust to what I've done to it the day before."


Respect For Food

Swanepoel has a healthy appreciation for fresh, nutritious food. "I think that respecting where your food comes from and how it's made is the most important lesson," she says. "Appreciating everything that we have that other people don't have. I grew up on a farm so I saw where everything came from: animals, plants, everything… it's the simple things that are most important."
