Visser shared her process on Instagram.

Beitske Visser is a successful race car driver. She has placed 2nd in the W Series in 2019 and 2022. After an injury, she is making sure to do some recovery workouts. Visser shared her process on Instagram in February. In it, Visser is seen doing strength training workouts, ab workouts, and planks. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Beitske Visser stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Strength Trains

In her Instagram video, Visser is seen doing strength training workouts like bench presses and tricep curls. According to Reid Health, strength training can help with your wellbeing. "Strength training not only benefits the body it also improves mental well-being by reducing stress and anxiety. Strength training helps your brain release naturally occurring 'feel-good' chemicals called endorphins improving your mood and decreasing anxiety. In addition strength training can also help increase your confidence and self-esteem which in turn can increase your quality of life."


She Does Planks

In the Instagram video, Visser is seen holding a plank. Allina Health states that planks have a lot of health benefits. "The plank is a simple, effective bodyweight exercise that strengthens your core, as well as muscles in your upper and lower body. Core muscles, which include your back and abdomen, help you maintain posture and balance as you stand, sit and move throughout the day."


She Works Her Abs

In her Instagram video, Visser is seen doing Russian Twists, which help your core. The Mayo Clinic states that having a strong core is important. "Your core is the central part of your body. It includes your pelvis, lower back, hips and stomach. The stomach muscles sometimes are called abs. Core exercises train the muscles in your core to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and steadiness, also called stability. Stability is important whether you're on the playing field or doing regular activities. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles."


She Swims

Visser loves to swim to stay in shape. She shares a lot of posts on Instagram of herself in the water. Visser captioned this post of herself in the pool, "Can summer come back please?" She also shared this photo of herself in a pool in Spain. Visser captioned that post, "Enjoying my holiday."


She Rock Climbs

Visser loves to rock climb to stay in shape. She shared this set of photos on Instagram of herself working out. In the first one, she is seen on a climbing wall. Visser captioned the post, "Great training camp done and ready for the first part of the season." Goodnet reports that indoor rock climbing has a lot of benefits. "Rock climbing gets the heart rate up as much as running or cycling. A study from the British Journal of Sports Medicine showed that indoor rock climbing has the same cardiovascular impact as running eight to ten minutes per mile. Indoor rock climbing doesn't just strengthen the heart muscle. This full body workout engages nearly all major muscle groups, claims Health Fitness Revolution. The core abdominal muscles,  forearms and biceps, quads and calves and everything in between are all involved in helping climbers clamber up that wall."
