FIT System: Like having a gym in your cab

Fit SystemWe’re not telling you anything new when we say having a daily fitness routine — even a modest one — is essential to one’s good health, but especially so for a driver who spends much of every work day sitting.

Neither is it news to you that starting that fitness program and maintaining it is much easier said than done. After all, who has a gym in their truck?

You can with the Freightliner In-Cab Trainer (FIT) System. Co-developed with the Trucker Trainer Bob Perry of Rolling Strong and Sean Mohr in collaboration with Mike McHorse for Daimler Trucks North America, the FIT System is designed to burn calories and fat while increasing cardiovascular endurance.

Easily installed in any sleeper cab, the FIT System uses resistance bands of different levels to increase results. The system includes the FIT Step, which can be used for an in-cab cardio workout. Resistance bands can be attached to the FIT Step for a complete body workout.

Additionally, the FIT System packs in a carrying bag and can be used in a hotel room or at home.
