We offer proven, field-tested solutions to individual drivers and commercial fleets that will increase profitability and safety by reducing risk factors related to obesity, driver fatigue and accidents.
As a truck driver myself, I know that there never seems to be enough time in the day to do everything that needs to be done. I know about the stress of traffic and rushing to make appointments only to end up waiting for hours to get loaded or unloaded. I know about fighting fatigue and the monotony of drive, eat, sleep, drive, eat, sleep, drive . . . . For many drivers, this occupational situation simply destroys their health.
Junk food, stress and lack of sleep – this is the reason more than 70% of commercial truckdrivers are overweight.
For many, healthy eating habits and exercise are the first to get kicked to the curb when choices have to be made concerning time limits. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. I have changed my daily habits and so can you. You don’t have to be the victim of the industry’s own form of obesity called “Trucker’s Gut.” You can drive long-haul and lose weight. Heck, you can even be a competitive athlete. I know. I am doing it. You can, too. Whether you want to lose weight or compete in a triathlon, Fitness Trucking can help.
