Lewis Hamilton's Fitness Tips from the Cockpit

PRESS UPS

“I’m the most competitive person I know,” says Lewis Hamilton, as he trains on the waterfront near his Monaco flat. “I’ve been like that since day one ­­— even when I was riding tricycles at nursery.”

“It’s a mix of cardio, weightlifting and gymnastics,” says Philly Brennan, trainer at Reebok CrossFit Thames. “It’s a very intense, very short but very complete workout. And you get addicted very quickly.”

It’s not just for F1 drivers. Here’s how Hamilton’s exercises can give you a fit, fast and functional body.
