TravelCenters of America is offering a selection of fitness, food and wellness options aimed guiding drivers toward a healthier lifestyle, the truck stop company announced.

TravelCenters is adding healthier food offerings, fitness options and helpful information from its StayFit program to encourage drivers to get fit and stay healthy. Drivers can find a variety of StayFit items and activities throughout the company’s network of travel centers.

Healthier Grab ‘N Go snacks like Vitamin Water, yogurt and Good2Go fresh fruit and veggie cups will be available as well as StayFit dining options on select full-service restaurant menus at participating TA and Petro locations.

“We’re committed and proud to help our customers manage their health and be an integral part of their solution to eating better and exercising while they are out on the road,” said Tom O’Brien, president and CEO of TravelCenters.

StayFit exercise options include fitness rooms, walking and running trailers, basketball hoops and outdoor fitness areas at many locations – offered for free to customers. Many sites will also offer horseshoe and bean bag toss recreation options to allow drivers to get light exercise.

For drivers who prefer to work out in their cabs, a selection of fitness accessories like push-up bars, resistance bands, hand grips and workout gloves will be available from driver stores.

    More gyms you have places that have empty rooms that can be turned into gyms.... A lot of your walking trails are jokes or even unsafe. You have basketball courts and the place does NOT have balls....nor sell them. How about creating an outdoor fitness gym. Its all about money.

    I am glad to see this article and know that there are facilities for drivers to get exercise. I do CDL Physicals for truck drivers and I counsel my drivers who come to see me on lifestyle changes to get healthy and keep their BP level low naturally, through exercise and smart food choices. I have an exercise protocol that can get you fit in 20 minutes, three times a week and any driver can do it, even if you have no facility access. I will be glad to share it with all drivers for no charge when you call 843-203-5421. Dr. David Bellamy. Thanks for this article. BTW, The Concept 2 Rowing machine pictured is great for my protocol.
