Living a healthy lifestyle on the road can be really difficult at times, especially if you’re not familiar with the area. How do you find good walking or biking trails or if there’s a gym close to you? A healthy road life just got a little easier with the first wellness app for the transportation industry: RoadApp to Wellness by Rolling Strong.
Rolling Strong created the RoadApp to encourage the trucking industry to get up and get healthy. With the app truckers can find information such as the nutritional value of a local restaurant. This ability will help truck drivers make healthy choices wherever they eat and will keep them on track to their healthy lifestyle.
Another great feature of the RoadApp is that it includes diabetes information and tools from Bayer HealthCare to better manage their health status. According to Rolling Strong, the RoadApp is designed specifically for the driver and their needs. With it, truck drivers can find information on common driver ailments and receive daily tips on how to stay healthy with their truck driving job.
The trucking industry has many individuals within its ranks battling hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, obesity and many other health threats that effect quality of life. C.R. England is committed to providing its community of drivers, support staff, management team and others with the tools and resources to improve health and wellness.
Recently, C.R. England Health and Wellness Division went through a dynamic shift to fall under the responsibility of the company’s medical division. Though in its infancy, a number of new programs have been or are in the process of implementation.
Rolling Strong has also added trucker specific workout routines where drivers can learn some proper exercises using their truck. They can also see videos that contain driver health information. Drivers using the RoadApp can also select a link to the Center for Disease Control where they can find the very latest in health information. The app also contains locations of facilities such as clinics, Rolling Strong Snap Fitness gyms, and Pilot Flying J locations.
The Rolling Strong RoadApp to Wellness is a free app available to download at the Apple store. It is currently available for an iPhone, iPad or computer.
