  • Former race car driver Danica Patrick appeared Monday
    afternoon at Business Insider’s IGNITION conference in
    conversation with BI’s chief tech correspondent Julie Bort.
  • Patrick was asked her one piece of advice to being physically
  • She said it takes pushing oneself past one’s

Entrepreneur and GoDaddy spokeswoman Danica Patrick recently
released a book in 2017 called “Pretty Intense,” about a
90-day plan promising to change your life.

So what does it take to be physically fit?

“It’s about intensity. It’s about pushing yourself. It’s about
pushing your boundaries,” Patrick said Monday afternoon at
Business Insider’s IGNITION Conference in New
York City during a conversation with BI’s chief tech
correspondent Julie Bort.

“It’s really that simple,” Patrick continued. “It will be
amazing, the effects, when you push yourself physically, that it
has on your life otherwise. Whether it’s your confidence, your
job, you name it.”

The former race car driver shared she put 100% of herself into
the book, writing the recipes, designing the cover, taking the
food photos, and more. Patrick listed off several workouts that
are part of a fit test in her book, including 100 sit-ups and 100
knee push-ups back-to-back.

“You say to yourself, ‘I can’t do that.’ And then you do it and
you start saying ‘I can’ so much more often. You build that
confidence and that positivity,” said Patrick. “It’s about
pushing yourself. For me, it didn’t happen until I started doing
crossfit about five or so years ago, and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s
working out!'”

Patrick then asked the audience a question that caught them off
guard a bit.

“Has anyone worked out so hard that you feel like you taste
blood?” Patrick said to laughter from the crowd. “There’s
apparently fluid in your lungs. I’m just going to tell you that
you can make that happen in about two minutes or less. Anyway, it
taught me about intensity.”

Danica Patrick asks the
crowd if they’ve ever worked so hard that they’ve had the taste
of blood in their mouth.


Bort asked whether or not that was how Patrick got in the shape
that she is on the cover of her 2017 book, she said it was that
and dieting.

“Abs are made in the kitchen and there’s no way around that. I’m
sorry, but that’s true,” she said. “I had finally done a workout
program, which was intensity and integral training along with a
different diet. I had the best results, which is why I ended up
writing the book and wanted to help people to share what I had
experienced for myself so this book was my baby.”
