ACE-certified health coach, fitness educator and all-around athlete Candice McField knows a thing or two about helping people get in shape. In fact, as the founder of Candice McField Fitness, she’s her own brand for women.
The former student-athlete, who has more than 15 years of industry experience and an executive MBA, said she initially found her niche in character competition. Magazine articles and first place follow, as does her current job on the Kansas Governor’s Fitness Council. (Trust us, her praise has accolades.)
Now metro fitness pro trains clients from all over the world. We interviewed McField between practices, flooding her with our inquiries about questionable questions. She made us do push-ups as she answered—under duress. (Damn, she’s fine.)
court: Without a doubt, what specific sport do customers hate the most?
Candice McField: Without a doubt, my client Hate hand walk. When they watched me demonstrate the move, they thought it was easy—until they try. The hand walk is a great full-body workout that provides resistance, core work, and dynamic stretching all at the same time.you can view my Video demo here.
How many things are too many to put in a protein smoothie?
There are simply too many items to turn a healthy, balanced protein shake into a sugary oasis that induces coma-type sleep.
I think it’s more about the types of items people add to their protein smoothies. What you add to your shake is more important than how much you add.
My ideal smoothie:
- chocolate or vanilla protein powder
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1 handful oatmeal
- 1 banana
- cinnamon powder
- 7 ice cubes
How long can you hold your breath?
How many people outside of professional freedivers know the answer to this question? If I was guessing, I’d say about 45 seconds, but I couldn’t help myself, so I timed it.
I can hold my breath for 53 seconds.
What’s the most misunderstood lyric you’ve ever sung?
I have to say Michael Jackson’s lyrics on “Wanna Be Startin’ Something” blew me away. I never knew what he was singing and whenever I sang along I got that part confused.
Now I know the lyrics are “Ma-ma-se, ma-ma-sa, ma-ma-ko-ssa”.i can assure you no what am i singing.
Bonus 5day question: What’s the dumbest phobia you’ve ever heard?
Claustrophobia, I say that because it’s a phobia of mine. A long time ago, I was stuck in an elevator and my claustrophobia was born. Not only did the elevator get my heart racing, but idling in a car under a bridge made me jittery.
