If it happens in our industry we cover it !
I am a veteran and a truck driver and I built this company and our programs for a few reasons.
1) Drivers and veterans are both job-oriented people and sometimes they forget about their own health & wellness. Like most veterans, drivers need to get the job done no matter what and that creates problems.
I created this program in "3" steps so anyone can follow it and it starts at the beginning of YOUR healthy program
The program we developed is called
Fork in the Road
The instructor we chose to run this program is Tonya Mc Pherson and she has experience in trucking, cooking, and preparing the meals she will developed for our drivers and this program.
This Web site and APP will also carry some great links to diet, exercise, motivation, and finance. The ones listed first are "FREE" and are cell phone oriented. Though they are labeled Government or Veteran you can still use them for free and these programs are very well constructed and
If you still want some person-to-person counseling I have listed some additional information below to help you.
We have 2 program counselors listed below.
1) Chris Nerat who has over 20 years working with similar programs and can be reached here. https://www.facebook.com/fit4truckers
2) Carylon O Byrne an author and instructor. She can be reached here.
I have also listed a few companies here that offer similar programs in our industry.
St Christopher Fund https://truckersfund.org
I also note that I am the CEO of this company and I do not accept or receive a paycheck or compensation in any way. I do it because it has to be done.
Then down load that program for "FREE". You do not have to be Veteran to use these programs.
This is a 16-week program offered by the VA, but can be used by every one.
