The Mid America Truck Show never fails to offer all the newest and most promising products offered by the trucking industry. One product we were excited to see this year was the In-Cab Training (FIT) System. MATS attendees were privileged to see it demonstrated live at the Freightliner manufacturers display. The (FIT) System is surprisingly affordable online and everything seemed very easy to install and use. This is a great solution to a multitude of deterrents holding drivers back from getting daily exercise. The Freightliner In-Cab Training (FIT) System was co-developed by Bob Perry, the Trucker Trainer™ and president and founder of Rolling Strong. In collaboration with Sean Mohr, Dr. Josef Loczi and Freightliner engineering and product marketing.
Rolling Strong™ is the leader in driver wellness providing the only driver wellness program that is driver-designed and delivered to drivers where they work and live, on the road. Cross-functional teams from Daimler Trucks North America and Rolling Strong worked together to develop and extensively test the FIT System.
The Freightliner In-Cab Training (FIT) System provides drivers with full body strength-and-conditioning workouts in the comfort of their own cabs. The FIT System features a triple-grip handle, which enables users to interchange three 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. Truck drivers also have access to health, wellness and nutrition information, as well as a personal trainer, via the FIT Channel on www.RollingStrong.com and through blogs, videos and forums located on the Freightliner Trucks online community www.TeamRunSmart.com. The trainer helps keep drivers motivated, and provides new exercises that can be incorporated into fitness routines.
