A Healthy Heart Challenge

February is American Heart Month and we hope everyone will commit to #HeartHealthyXPO for a healthier lifestyle.

Throughout the month, we’re holding a contest on our Facebook page to encourage professional drivers to stay healthy. Just visit the page, click on our “Heart Health Pledge” link, choose your preferred heart-healthy activity and you’ll be entered to win one of five XPO-branded fitness gear prize packages.


While you’re thinking about how to take care of your heart, consider these simple ways to boost cardiovascular health:

  • Reducing sodium intake: The American Heart Association recommends no more than 1,500mgs of sodium per day
  • Moving your body: At least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity at least five days per week and two days of moderate- to high-intensity muscle-strengthening activity per week will keep your ticker in peak condition. Keep in mind that even just walking for 30 min a day helps!
  • Reducing Stress: Stress can cause illness, influence poor eating habits, and sap your energy. To find your zen, try positive self-talk, deep breathing and finding healthy activities that you enjoy like painting, knitting, listening to music, reading, etc.

As part of our contest, share your progress towards a healthy lifestyle with us via the Facebook page or by using #HeartHealthyXPO on Twitter & Instagram. Check out the goals or activities some of our drivers have already shared with us:

  • Regular Cardiologist visits
  • Training for a 5k race
  • Laugh more!
  • Participating in Firefighter training to get in shape

We hope to hear your health goals and activities and if you have any questions, please message us at
