The McLaren Mercedes team have joined forces with Direxiv to create the "Direxiv Dynamic Wellbeing Programme", aimed at improving the fitness, health, wellbeing and diet of the team's members.
The programme will be headed by Aki Hintsa, the Chief Physician of the Finnish Olympic Committee.
He will be supported by a team of four employees, two of whom will be based at the McLaren Technology Centre. The other two are Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya's personal trainers Mark Arnall and Gerry Convey.
Tokyo-based Direxiv is a luxury goods and services company. The company set up Direxiv Motorsport in 2005 to promote their brands and to support young drivers.
In 2006, Direxiv-branded teams will compete in the GP2, Super GT and Formula Nippon series.
