Do you think you have what it takes to be named the “Fittest of the Fleet”? Or do you pride yourself on having a healthy lifestyle and want to connect with other like-minded people? Either way, we have discovered the competition for you. Driver Health and Fitness, a website dedicated to the health and wellness of truck drivers, has partnered with Prime to announce its third annual “Fittest of the Fleet” Competition – and all truck drivers are invited to register.
The Fittest of the Fleet competition is free to sign up, and the prize is a whopping $1,000! The day will consist of assorted fitness events where you will compete against other truck drivers of your gender. Events will include kettle bell exercises, weight lifting (nothing more than 100 lbs. for men and 40 lbs. for women); jump roping and assorted events involving your truck. Judges will assess events and at the end of the day, the Fittest of the Fleet will be crowned!
(To be eligible you must hold a Class A CDL license and have at least three months of current driving in 2015.)

Drivers interested in participating are encouraged to train in the months leading up to the event. Try daily cardio routines, approximately 30 minutes per day, and add in occasional sprints and weight lifting when possible.
The 2015 Fittest of the Fleet competition will take place at the Ramada Oasis Convention Center in Springfield, Missouri September 5 – only about an hour away from the Joplin terminal.
So far, we haven’t had any Con-way Truckload drivers register for this exciting competition – but we have a feeling that we have one of the fittest fleets around. What are you waiting for? We’d love to cheer you on. Drivers, register here and tell us you’ve registered on Facebook!
