Everyday Truckers, Extraordinary Results!
To Assist the Trucking Industry in Living a Healthier Lifestyle, We Created the Lean for Life® On-the-Road Program
Professional truck drivers are one of the least healthy occupational groups in America. Reports show that 86% of drivers are either overweight or obese. The life expectancy of truck drivers is only 61 years–that’s 17 years less than the national average! An alarming percentage of drivers currently on the road would likely fail the stricter D.O.T. exam being implemented by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA).
Trucking companies already face severe driver shortages, and too many individual truck drivers are at risk of losing their livelihood. Decreasing driver health could potentially cripple the experienced driver workforce, and that could greatly impact fleet mobility. Our economy would feel the crunch as well, as many goods we regularly use are delivered by truck drivers.
Through our association with the Convenient Care Association (CCA), we became aware of the critical health condition of the trucking industry. In response, Lindora customized a version of our renowned online program, complete with personalized coaching, for the trucking industry. A team was formed to develop alliances with local and national trucking associations, trucking companies, industry service providers, and national truck stop chains.
Lindora has been educating the industry via trucking publications, company newsletters, and speaking engagements at industry conferences. Our efforts have resulted in a steady increase in awareness of health and wellness, and have demonstrated to the industry that healthy trucking is indeed possible. The initiative’s success has surprised many, as we have seen an overall average of 8-9% loss of starting body weight from professional truck drivers and inside staff alike. More than 40% of the trucking participants have lost more than 10% of their body weight, with many losing up to 20%. The improved health, increased productivity, energy and enthusiasm that has resulted has been inspiring!
We also partnered with Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) in managing the Trucking’s Weight Loss Showdown competitions. In these events, trucking carriers compete for prizes while losing thousands of pounds of weight. In the process, these events have generated a great deal of momentum for the healthy trucking mission.
