When Courtney was asked by Women Fitness about her typical workout routine, she said, “I do a lot of strength training in the gym and cardio. It’s important to build your upper body strength when handling one of these 10,000 horsepower race cars. In these cars anything can happen when you’re reaching speeds over 300mph so you need to be mentally and physically prepared for anything. After working with a trainer I’ve learned so many great moves and workouts that I have added to my routine and taken on the road with me.
Regarding her diet, she shared, “I eat small meals throughout the day to keep my energy level up. I am always relying on protein and do my best to cut out the carbs especially over a race weekend. When I need a snack I always grab fruit or almonds to hold me over.
