Trey Shannon from Podium Performance Fitness is our podcast guest for this episode, just in time for the local gym to be freeing up from all the failed New Year’s resolution people. This is our second annual episode with Trey, and we go over a variety of aspects of improving your fitness to help improve your driving, especially during the off season.
Trey is located near Charlotte NC and is helping many high-level drivers and teams with their off track preparation both physically and mentally. Driving improvements will help reduce individual lap times as well as reducing any fatigue related deterioration during extended stints.
If you are interested in improving in this area of your driving, please feel free to contact Trey at: Podium Performance Fitness in Cornelius North Carolina (near Charlotte) or on the website at:
