Staying healthy can be a challenge when your job consists of sitting in a truck for up to 12 hours per day. In fact, statistics from the National Institute of Health show that more than 50 percent of truck drivers are obese, compared to the national rate of 26.7 percent. TravelCenters of America/Petro (TA) recognized an opportunity to provide its customers with tools to battle this growing problem.
