The Healthy Fleet 10 Pound Challenge is back! During the months of January and February, drivers, staff, and executives from across the industry will buckle down to work towards their weight-loss goals.
The first 10 Pound Challenge in 2017 was one of our most successful challenges since beginning in 2014. We’ve seen incredible results with this type of weight-loss focused challenge, with our last one tallying over 550 pounds lost in just 8 weeks, and we’re looking to surpass that this time.
The challenge is open to all fleets and companies involved in the trucking industry, and any individuals at those companies are welcome to join. Nutritionist & Health Coach Andrea will be leading the group through their weight loss journey by providing weight loss information, dispelling myths, and clearing confusion.
The wellness world is really loud right now, so many companies are trying to promote a different diet or supplement that they claim is the ‘best,’ but all they’ve done is created confusion and overwhelm for those who want results. Forget about the paleo, keto, low-carb, no-carb, 2-shakes-a-day types of diets; this will be about eating enjoyable food, helping the body to function its best, and losing weight as a result.
The trucking industry is known for having an unhealthy reputation, but at Healthy Trucker, we’re been working to change that. We know that drivers want to improve their health, but two of the biggest barriers to doing that seem to be knowledge and accountability. They want to know what food they should be choosing when they are in a truck stop halfway across the country, what workouts they can do beside the truck, and they need somebody to keep them motivated so they stick to it.
That’s where Andrea, the challenge coach, comes in: each week, she’ll send participants education, tips, and videos that coincide with weekly mini-challenges that they will complete.
Andrea believes weight is about much more than just image, stating that reducing excess body weight in a healthy way can improve alertness and focus, key factors in the safety of drivers and the productivity of employees. By reducing the number on the scale, we’ve been able to help people reduce their need for medications, improve energy levels and sleep quality, better manage stress, and feel a sense of confidence that they may not have experienced in years.
Any company or individual in the trucking industry are welcome to join the challenge. If you would like to get your company involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org. To sign up as an individual, click here!
