Cosmetics and Calories, Fitness and Finesse, Beauty and Body Building. In the great scheme of things, we want it all, brains, beauty and body. We quizzed the triple threat Candy Brenn on how she successfully maintains all three. Candy needs a certain motivation to keep all three in tact.“ You really have to love yourself enough that you want to change for the better. For me, I stay motivated by taking progress pictures so I can see how far I have actually come.”
Beauty for some comes naturally, such as great skin, but for some skin can be a concern, like myself for instance. Admittedly my skin isn’t the best, even though I’m a makeup artist, I experiment too much even though my skin is super sensitive. But I did love a tip she shared with us and I saw great results too!
“Instead of going to the spa, this clean and easy facial mask saves you time and money! It’s great for all skin types and anyone can make it at home with just two simple ingredients. Just take 2 egg whites and mix them with 2 tablespoons of plain Greek yogurt. Apply mixture to your face and let set for a few minutes. Rise off with warm water and a soft washcloth.“
Speaking from personal ambitions, the physique is the ultimate long-term goal to maintain and sustain. Candy let us in on a little secret for body building “ It’s great to look at other people for inspiration but the key is to be the best YOU that you can possibly be! I love eating healthy and working out not only because it makes me look good, but because it makes me FEEL great!”

Here is Candy’s full interview with very descriptive answers! Candy Brenn is the exact definition of a fitness guru! She really knows her stuff and she has the body to prove it!
1. What do you do as a VPX Model
As a Redline Xtreme Girl I am blessed to work for the number one sports nutrition and supplement company, VPX Sports/Redline Energy! What we do is educate consumers on our top of the line products. You can find us working at a variety of events and places; from health and nutrition stores, supplement shops, fitness expos, bodybuilding competitions, athletic events, concerts, and sporting events such as the Florida Panthers hockey games, we are all over the globe! We always offer free samples so that customers can try our premium products because we know that if they try it, they will love it! Additonally, we hold swimwear fashion shows and calendar signings for our yearly swimsuit calendar. I love representing VPX Sports because they are the leader when it comes to high quality and innovative supplements and I know first hand how effective their supplements are!
2. How many days a week do you work out?
6 days a week on average.
3. Describe your perfect meal?
Steamed salmon, roasted br
ussel sprouts, and a sweet potato with almond butter and cinnamon sprinkled on top! SO GOOD!!!!!
4. What your favorite work out?
Call me crazy but I love leg days. One of my favorite exercises is the squat because there are so many squat variations. Weighted sumo squats are great for targeting your glutes, don’t forget to SQUEEZE! 🙂
5. Whats one tip you can give to get a flat and toned stomach?
Revealing your abdominals is all about having a low enough body fat percentage. I can’t stress it enough that you must have a clean diet in order to get a toned tummy! You can do all the exercises in the world but if your nutrition is not on point you are only hurting yourself. If you don’t eat according to your goals, don’t expect to reach them!
6. How can girls and women get motivated to get a toned body like yours?
You really have to love yourself enough that you want to change for the better. For me, I stay motivated by taking progress pictures so I can see how far I have actually come. It’s great to look at other people for inspiration but the key is to be the best YOU that you can possibly be! I love eating healthy and working out not only because it makes me look good, but because it makes me FEEL great!
7. What’s your favorite “healthy” food?
Just one?! I have soooo many! I suppose if I had to choose I’d say I have quite a fondness for all natural nut butters, specifically almond butter. Almond butter is a great source of healthy fats, fiber, and protein. Just make sure you watch your portion size because it is calorie dense.
8. Do you ever have a “cheat” meal?
Yes of course I do! I like to refer to them as “treat” meals though. I think it is very important to have balance in life and incorporating a treat meal here and there is not only good for your metabolism but also for your brain as it helps prevent many people from binging on junk food!
9. What are some fitness supplements you would advise to take?
I would recommend any and all of VPX Sports supplements, depending on one’s goal. For me, my favorite product is VPX Sports Zero Carb SRO which is 100% Whey Protein Isolate. I use it daily in shakes, smoothies, and even for baking healthy treats! You can find numerous nutritious recipes on my blog at http://www.candyscleancooking.blogspot.com
10. What do you do other than workout and model?
Many people are surprised to find that I actually work full time at a law firm as a legal assistant!
