Race car driver Danica Patrick arrives at the 2010 ESPY Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on July 14, 2010 in Los Angeles.

A race car driver with racy looks, Danica Patrick has to stay toned so as not to add extra weight to her ride, but must maintain the strength and conditioning required to handle a high-powered engine for hundreds of miles of tough track. Patrick runs for at least an hour a day during racing season to stay trim and fit, then follows that up with exercises to strengthen her shoulders, arms and back. Like many top-level athletes, she's passionate about nutrition, too. Her high-protein diet starts with a three-egg white omelette every morning, plus oatmeal and a scoop of peanut butter.
