Racing to Fitness with New Hampshire Motor Speedway
As many of you know we have been coaching the team up at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for over two years through our corporate onsite fitness coaching program. As a huge NASCAR fan it has been really cool to get to know the team at NHMS and learn a little more about how a major sports entity functions. I had been to Sprint Car races up there before we started working with them, but I had absolutely no idea how busy that place is and all the different things they do.
Did you know that from when the track opens in early spring until the snow flies there is something going on, on track, virtually every day? The Rusty Wallace experience lets you get in and drive, the Sprint drivers come in for testing, all levels of motorcycle racing and instruction, even bicycles are up there using the track. On the weekends are a number of racing series for “regular people” like the Legends and Bandolero cars, where all ages learn to drive, race, and have a blast. And all that is just the tip of the iceberg. Many of you have gone up to the track and participated in the Renegade Playground, or the Color Vibe, or one of the many charity 5k’s they have hosted. These guys do a lot!
This weekend is the second race in the Chase for the Championship, which means the team at the track is working like crazy people to make sure the thousands of NASCAR fans coming in this week have the time of their lives. I cannot tell you how much respect I have for Jerry Gappens and the team he has working with him. We in New Hampshire should be very proud of NHMS and all they do for the community and the state. Not every track gets to be part of The Chase, and it is a testament to what they do here. Growing up in this area I used to go with my dad to what was then Bryar Motorsports Park, and from those humble beginnings has risen one of the crown jewels of NASCAR, right here in little old NH!
But what I am REALLY pumped about announcing today is that Get Fit NH has partnered with NHMS and we are now the “Official Gym of New Hampshire Motor Speedway”.
How cool it that?!!!
We are absolutely thrilled to continue to bring our world class fitness coaching to this world class organization. I can always count on a smiling face and enthusiasm when we get down to the business of getting fit, and I count it a great privilege to be called “Coach” by this amazing group of people.
So what are you waiting for? If you haven’t visited NHMS lately, this is a great weekend to get on up there. I know that Jerry, Jen, David, Lisa, Kendra, Wendy, Tabitha, Jeff, Donna, Jessica, Kayla and the rest of the gang will be glad to see you.
