About the Project

Back for the second year after a successful debut in 2015, Fit for Racing 2016 saw 346 participants joining the challenge on 25 June. Held at SAFRA Punggol, participants went through a circuit-style workout created by Paul Haines, an Australian fitness coach who has trained elite athletes including Formula 1 driver, Daniel Ricciardo.


To ensure participants were ‘Race Fit’, the challenge consisted of competitive workouts that simulate the training regime of a Formula 1 driver focusing on core stability, balance, upper and lower body strength, conditioning as well as full muscle endurance. The top 12 male and female finalists battled it out in the finals that also tested their reactive skills to compete for attractive prizes worth over $9,500.
