Justin Gelband is her personal trainer who helps her in keeping toned legs. Justin says that there are 5 key exercises on which Candice works, the lower back, hip, butt, balance, and stability.
The most important thing which a model needs while walking on the runway is the balance. So, she works out to keep her body balanced. This 5 ft 9 in model likes kickboxing, jumping ropes and building muscles. She says
“I love walking up on the runway. I box, I do a lot of resistance, three times a week”
Candice also practices Yoga when she is too tired of boxing. She says that yoga keeps her to stay flexible and keep her mind quiet.
Further, Gelband insists on working out with quality over quantity. This video explains how Candice develops her body for runway with Justin Gelband.

Candice Swanepoel says that it is not hard for her to stick to a healthy diet plan. She can manage it easily. By the way, she can eat whatever she wants like her favorite foods pizza, pasta. Click here for her more favorite things.
It does not affect much to her, as she has always been thin from her childhood. Also, besides eating her favorites, she eats healthy food as well like vegetables, enough protein, drinks a lot of water and steak to develop some muscles. She says
“I like a healthy breakfast. I like croissants, pizza, pasta, eggs, steak. I love vegetables, omelette.”
She admits that it is too difficult to maintain a balanced diet plan while traveling. That doesn’t mean that she will deprive herself from eating. Rather, she eats whatever she wants, whether it is pizza, Brazilian cheese bread or anything.
Some rumors revealed that Candice was recently suffering from anorexia. On being asked about it, she said that she tried to starve herself but it didn’t help her much. Starving weakens your body and invites ailments. It is recommended by experts that rather than starving yourself, go for balanced diet along with some natural product which increases metabolism and helps in fat oxidation.
Thanks for the informative article, it was a good read and I hope its ok that I share this with some facebook friends. Thanks.

Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don’t need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can’t do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways.
What is likeable in this post. It is so shallow. Especially regarding her diet.
At least she admits to trying to starve herself. The whole post is about her diet and exercise routine, so why are you commenting about it?
It’s difficult to believe she really eats whatever she wants and stays skinny. Maybe that’s by model standards? I remember watching her shooting a promotion that involved pretending to lick cupcakes, and she was so paranoid about accidentally consuming any of the frosting. Sounds like anorexic behavior to me.
Just throwing it out there….being thin itself doesn’t always mean there’s an eating disorder, nor does denying PROCESSED SUGAR in the form of frosting. It’s called healthy eating. I know the video you are talking about and she wasn’t being “paranoid” because of her weight. If you knew anything about her you’d know she suffers from VERY sensitive skin to bad foods. If I eat sugar like that I get zits because I was never given that stuff as I was growing up. So I avoid the stuff too because my body can’t handle it. Low and behold, I also have a thin, healthy frame. Imagine that. Maybe sometimes people ARE naturally this thin because we naturally take care of ourselves and know what effects us. If frosting doesn’t harm you in some way, then have it. If it does, then don’t. Seriously…
WHat a load of BS!! Sure, I love chocolate and bacon too, but to look like them, you only eat it twice a year.
They eat 1300 cals a day 400 of it from protein and the rest is fats. Then they workout 2 hours a day.
I wonder if I can stay skinny but also develop some muscles, the healthy way! I showed the dietitian Candice’s body, she said that it’s unhealthy!
