Getting Fit on the Road

Week 3 Post 1

The spring season means many people are thinking of getting in shape or losing weight. Gray Transportation understands the difficulties of being on the road and trying to stay healthy. In March, we talked about how you can be a healthy trucker when it comes to food choices. This month, we are going to discuss how you can get fit on the road without going to the gym. No matter where you are on the road, whether it is the truck stop, rest area, or a gas station; you can get fit by following a few simple exercise tips.

Spend at least 15 minutes each day being active– You may not feel like doing push-ups or crunches, but you can at least walk around for 15 minutes per day. This can be easily accomplished on a break or while fueling up the truck. Consider doing a few laps on the inside or outside of the truck stop or walking along the path at the rest area. Rest areas are great for cardio because there are typically dedicated areas for walking.

Use your own body for weight lifting– You don’t need to be in the gym for strength training. Push-ups, crunches, and leg workouts can easily be done without extra weights.  Try doing three sets of 15 push-ups every morning or before you go to sleep at night. Your arms will eventually gain muscle. Crunches are great for working your core, so do three sets of 20 crunches. Even the smallest steps to a fit life can help you reach your fitness goals on the road.

Gray Transportation encourages you to be active for at least 15 minutes each day. You will be amazed with the results of combining exercise and healthy eating. Contact Gray Transportation to join our team of successful drivers today.
