ATLANTA — Fit to Pass, a new fitness-coaching program developed by Espyr to support health and wellness for CDL drivers, is slated to sponsor The Fittest Driver strength competition at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky, later this month.
Drivers will compete for prizes and the title of “Fittest Driver” by showing how many times they can “bench press” one end of a Michelin truck tire. Separate winners will be named for men and women drivers. There is no charge to enter the contest, which will begin at 1 p.m. March 26 and end at 2 p.m. March 28. Drivers can compete as many times as they like during the contest period.

Perry worked with Espyr to create the Fit to Pass coaching program, which is designed to help CDL drivers pass DOT recertification physical examinations. The year-round program intensifies during the 90-day period leading up to a driver’s recertification exam.
“The CDL-driver lifestyle can be hard on drivers’ health, and if a driver is in jeopardy of losing his or her card, that can be devastating to them and their families,” said Rick Taweel, CEO at Espyr. “Fit to pass was created by drivers for drivers, and was designed to improve driver health and wellness while protecting their livelihoods by passing the DOT re-cert exam.”
