frequently asked questions about the trucking fitness company

Why The Trucking Fitness Company?

The majority of the trucking industry has scared drivers into thinking they can’t live a healthy life while on the road, but we’re here to change that!

It doesn’t take a genius to realize most truck drivers will never be Arnold Schwarzenegger, but is that really the goal for 99% of people? Probably not… So, why does it have to be all or nothing?

We want to help you take the next step forward to living a healthy life on the road by helping you exercise consistently and eat healthier!

What program options do you offer?

We have 4 program options:

  1. Beginner
  2. In The Truck
  3. Out Of The Truck
  4. At Home

 

Beginner – Everyone has a starting point and for a lot of drivers who have never exercised in their life or have taken a little bit of a break, this is the program for them! It’s built to be done anywhere and for any level of driver. 

In The Truck – We understand it can be tough to get outside of the truck to workout at times. It might be too cold or too hot, or you just don’t feel comfortable working out in front of other drivers at the truck stop. That’s why this program is perfect for you – all exercises can be done in the comfort of your bunk!

Out Of The Truck – You feel stuck inside the truck all day and want to get some fresh air, this is your program! Since it’s out of the truck, this program has more variety of exercises and is more advanced than the other programs. 

At Home – Being on home time or a local driver doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make your health a priority. This program is built to be done in your living room or anywhere you have time to workout at!

What equipment is needed for the programs?

Every member who signs up gets a free resistance band sent to their house or company terminal. That’s all the equipment you will need!

You don’t have to worry about finding a gym or buying a ton of specific equipment, we’ll give you everything you need.

Also, the first couple of months have body weight only options so that you don’t have to wait for your band to get to you before starting to workout!

What is the length of each TFC workout session?

We understand that time is a limited resource on the road, so we created this program to fit into your current routine without having to have a 180 degree lifestyle change.

All of the daily workouts range from 20-30 minutes long, with the Exercise of the Day workout option taking less than 5 minutes!

Since with our program you will be able to workout anytime at any place, you can fit your workout in before you start driving that day, during your break, when you’re waiting to be loaded, or even after you get done for the day!

How much does your program cost?

The program costs $24.99 per 4 weeks.  It’s a monthly recurring subscription service which you can cancel at ANY time.  We currently have a discount coupon which gives you 25% off the first month.  The coupon code is TRUCK.  Make sure to click “Apply” after inputting the coupon code.

What forms of payment do you take?

We accept credit and debit cards.

Can I sign up for just one month?

Yes. You can sign up for one month and cancel, or you may find that you benefit so much from the training that you want to stay on for a number of months.

What is your cancellation policy?

You may cancel at any time. Regardless of when you cancel, you will still receive service for the entire month that you paid for.

Sign in to the app, select the three dots in the bottom right, “Manage Payments” and “Cancel”.  A confirmation of the cancellation will then be emailed to you.

I have a medical condition. Is this program a fit for me?

We are not medical professionals and may not give advice regarding medical conditions.  

We specialize in helping truck drivers exercise and live a healthier life on the road.  The TFC program improves strength and conditioning of anyone who participates. If your doctor recommends that you find an exercise program, then we can help!

If you are concerned about starting to exercise, you should consult your physician or other health care professional before starting our program or any other fitness program to determine if it is right for your needs. Do not join The Trucking Fitness Company if your physician or health care provider advises against it.

I have a DOT physical coming up soon. At what point should I start this program to pass it?

We recommend starting today.

Having motivation to exercise and eat healthier because of a DOT Physical coming up is great, but we want you to make a lifestyle change! We look at fitness as a lifelong relationship and if you want to come out of trucking and enjoy your retirement or not be forced to stop driving because of your health, you can’t just start this because of a DOT Physical in 3 months, you have to make it a part of your daily routine year around!

Can you give me an idea of what your service consists of? Is it just a list of exercises?

For less than $1 / day, you’ll get daily workouts tailored specifically for your current fitness level that can be done in or just outside of your truck.

  • Workouts delivered to your phone through our app based platform.
  • No gym or special equipment required. We will send you a free resistance band to use.
  • Your workouts are personally monitored by coaches in the Physical Therapy field and you will have 24/7 access to messaging them with any questions you have.
  • Habit based nutrition coaching that includes restaurant guides and a manual to building a healthy meal at a truck stop.
  • Daily messages to motivate, educate, and keep you accountable while on the road.
  • Access to the TFC Community, a group of like minded truck drivers who don’t let trucking define their health.

 

The programs are very clearly laid out and are delivered via the app.  All the exercises are shown on your calendar and you are guided through them daily by your Coach.  You do the exercises for the day, and you can ask your coach if you need help.  You have regular back and forth communication with your Coach.

Once you sign up, you will receive an invitation to download the TruckFit Online app so that the program of your choice can be assigned and you can get started on your workouts.

I’m a local driver. Can I do this program?

Yes! We would recommend our At Home program that is designed specifically for local drivers. Or if you are going to have time throughout your day while on the road to get your workout in, pick between the Beginner, In The Truck, or Out Of The Truck options!
