Rolling Strong recently joined Freightliner on the NASCAR tour to introduce the (FIT) System. I personally joined the Pit stop tour yesterday, May 22nd will again tomorrow the 24th, to workout with drivers and demonstrate the FIT System. I am honored to be working with Freightliner and their team to redefine wellness for the professional driver. I believe drivers are true road athletes.
Below is a list of the 2013 Alliance Pit Stop Tour Dates:
There are several barriers that make it difficult for truck drivers to maintain a healthy lifestyle, from irregular work hours, eating on the road and sitting for extended periods of time,” said Dr. Josef Loczi, manager, engineering strategy and market intelligence for Daimler Trucks North America. “The (FIT) System makes it easy for drivers to be proactive about their well-being.”
Cross-functional teams from Daimler Trucks North America and Rolling Strong worked together to develop and extensively test the (FIT) System. The teams added new options and refinements based on the feedback from truck drivers who put the system to use.
“The overall response we received has been overwhelming,” said Loczi. “The drivers who utilize the (FIT) System appreciate the simplicity and effectiveness of the system.”
The (FIT) System features a triple-grip handle, which enables users to interchange three specialized engineered bands to change resistance levels. The system uses existing seat tether and bunk restraint mounting points for installing custom brackets, which makes the system easy to attach and use.
“Healthy drivers are generally safer, more economical drivers, and the (FIT) System underscores our overall commitment to healthy trucking,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “Freightliner Trucks is dedicated to providing the trucking industry with products conducive to a healthy lifestyle for its most valuable asset – the driver.”
