Clint Bowyer is not one to own a gym membership. He doesn’t subscribe to any fad workouts and you’ll never find him in “The Box,” but Bowyer has no problem staying fit enough to survive a 500 mile race pulling three G’s in a scorching hot firesuit.

How? According to he just stays home all day. Of course, his home is a 650 acre farm with over a hundred cows that apparently love to destroy his fences over and over.

“Believe it or not, there’s weeks where if I don’t have anything going on, you’ll be heading back to the track Friday and realize you haven’t been outside your driveway all week long,” Bowyer says.

A 650 acre farm is sure to have plenty going on to keep one busy, and Bowyer likes it that way.

“There’s no couch time, but there’s never been that with me,” he says. “I’ve always been wide-open, here, there and everywhere. But the more I have going on, the happier I am.

“[…]I just like getting after it. I like going. I like being on the go. I don’t think I’ve ever been in one place probably in the last 10 years more than 10 days ever, even in the wintertime. … I can’t sit still.”

Bowyer does say he runs occasionally, but for the most part, regular work around the farm is enough to keep in shape for the 38 year old NASCAR vet.

If it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for us!
