In 2011, High Transit debuted Road Athlete System for its drivers as part of the High Industries Wellness Program. The Road Athlete System is an interactive health and safety program that specifically addresses the unique “roadblocks” facing professional truck drivers that may prevent them from living a healthy lifestyle. Road Athlete has been nationally endorsed by North American Transportation Management Institute (NATMI) and Commercial Vehicle Training Association (CVTA).
The Road Athlete System covers 12 lifestyle factors: nutrition, physical exercise, mental fitness, stress reduction, attitude and happiness, sleep substance abuse, time management, motivation, disease prevention, weight/obesity, and relaxation and safety factors that include: weather conditions, driving regulations, compliance, pre- & post-trip inspections, injury prevention, and employee – employer relations.
High Transit drivers have participated in this program based on their job demands and challenging lifestyle performing their over-the-road duties.
