Fitness Challenge

Pit crews are at the heart of every IndyCar team. Crew members work in high-action positions while the race is in full swing to deliver fuel and tires and the tiniest change to give their driver the competitive advantage. In this fast-paced world, drivers aren’t the only ones who need to be fit. In order to be the best at what they do, pit crew members must be physically fit because their jobs demand so much from their bodies and minds during a race.

Indiana University Health Sports Performance trainers have been working with Andretti Autosport drivers and pit crew members to help them develop the level of fitness required to be the best at their jobs and to prevent injuries that could keep them off the track.

IU Health Sports Performance and Andretti Autosport have teamed up to provide a basic fitness challenge for the at-home IndyCar enthusiasts—really, for anyone who wants to improve their fitness. Try out the weekly challenges presented in the videos below. Check in and update us with your progress on social media. You can find us on Twitter or Facebook.
