Racing is taxing physically on both drivers and crew members. A driver with physical discomfort may be distracted from racing the car at 100%. Likewise, a crew member may not perform duties in the pits at maximum efficiency, which could cost precious time on the track. As a certified athletic trainer and licensed physical therapist, Julia can help decrease physical stress to improve job performance.
