The early projects will include revamping the driver health and fitness portal to bring drivers up to date information that they can use on the road such as; healthy recipes that can be made in the truck, exercises routines for any experience level, accountability programs to meet your goals, and support groups with question and answer forums so that you can get real time help to overcome healthy barriers you might be facing while you’re on the road. Matt will also be working on creating fun and exciting challenges and programs to get you moving, as well as educational seminars to teach you ways to “Hack” your environment to create easy, healthy habits that can make huge differences.
