Pre-season prep for VW Ameo Cup 2019 drivers

The fitness camp was organized to evaluate the fitness levels of the drivers and to guide them towards achieving the fitness levels needed on the race track. Round One of the Ameo cup is scheduled in June at the Kari Motor Speedway, Coimbatore. The two-day camp witnessed the drivers undergoing multiple sessions on posture correction, diet and nutrition.

Day one started with fitness coaches Brent Wood Townend and Stuart Dolman’s counselling sessions. The duo conducted biomechanics and basic conditioning tests of the racers along with body composition analysis. After these tests, the drivers received a demonstration on the basics of Calisthenics workout which is a strength and stamina building workout that will help the drivers achieve both fitness and grace of movement for the upcoming season.

Day two witnessed interactive sessions with Prehab 21 on rehab training and postural correction techniques. Prehab technique teaches racers how to proactively prevent injuries and keep their neck, core and wrists safe. It was followed by a yoga session and a technique and form correction session by an IFBB Pro gold medalist and powerlifter Tejaswini Pandit.

Sirish Vissa, Head of Volkswagen Motorsport India said, “Motorsport is an extremely demanding sport, both physical and mentally. To cope with the rigours of the sport, the racers need a high level of preparedness and focus. We wanted our racers to learn from the experts at MultiFit who are a renowned health and fitness studio and apply the learnings of the two days over the course of their upcoming racing season.”
