BWET Celebrity Spotlight | Danica Patrick The Tiny Firecracker Behind The WheelAt just 5′ 2′ and 105 pounds, soaking wet, Danica Patrick is both an accomplished auto racer and model for magazines like Sports Illustrated and FHM.  But how does she keep her slight frame fit for grueling 500 lap races and not look like male bodybuilder in the magazines?

A self-described health nut, Danica says, “I worry about the scale like anyone else, but I have to make it through 5 hour races.  It’s a constant battle for me.”

Patrick’s exercise routine focuses on physical endurance and upper body functional strength.  For endurance, she prefers running distance with a few interval circuits dropped in for variety.  To build functional strength, she focuses on muscle groups that help her control her 1,500 pound racing machine and still look like a girl on photo shoots.  

“I have to work harder than those bigger guys to control my car” – Danica Patrick

As for her diet, Danica stays focused on health first and tastiness afterward.  She does however, say she likes her food to be tasty and it shows since she sent her husband to a 2-day course at the Culinary Institute in Napa Valley for Christmas last year.  Patrick prefers to cook her own meals at home with her husband Paul, so she can “make sure it’s all healthy”.

During the off-season, Danica Patrick focuses on strength building and body sculpting for her modeling side career.  It definitely shows too in her amazing photo shoots.  But, the question remains, can she honestly be taken seriously as a driver?  Honestly, I think she has great potential and brings a fresh and cute face to the sport.  One caveat though.  If she really wants to build her skills and reputation as a serious open-wheel racer, she needs to ditch the oval tracks and head to the Formula 1 circuit.
