The support I’ve received from the DHF staff, and more specifically, Sarah, has been a huge influence on the successes I’ve been able to achieve. I lost a lot of weight, I’m no longer pre-diabetic, and my osteoarthritis symptoms have lessened as well.
As a result of using the program my improved health has provided the stamina and focus to drive more miles, complete more loads ahead of schedule, and enjoy home time with family. Would highly recommend this program to all my fellow drivers out there!!
I joined DHF not long after getting my own truck because I didn’t want to gain weight out on the road. While the 13 week program worked, the new DHF is wonderful! Everything you need to be successful is available…meal planning, exercise routines that are doable, and most importantly, the moral support and encouragement you need to push forward when you don’t really want to. I highly suggest every driver get involved!!
I started this fitness journey on the road because after a few years of eating horribly and not exercising at all, I decided that I wasn’t going to become a victim of this industry by letting it ruin my health and quality of life. The DHF program at Prime is an excellent tool to use. Great recipe ideas and effective on the road workouts. If I can be a resource and help other drivers stay healthy, I’m all for it. As far as my health motto goes, “I’d rather put in work now, so I won’t have to suffer later in life.
I had a full knee replacement in the right leg in 2007. I had back and neck surgery in 2009. I have a 35 pound weight restriction and am restricted to low impact only on my right leg. With the pandemic working from home in 2020 wasn’t kind to me. I lost my focus and discipline and started putting weight back on reaching 225 pounds. In my August 2021 health check I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and was put on a higher dose of meds. I contacted Matt in DHF about putting a small gym in the corner of my bedroom at home to take advantage of the time working from home to get some cardio and weight training in. I started doing the workouts Matt Judy sent me first thing in the morning and went back to strict dieting and portion control to take the weight off and get the blood sugar and blood pressure heading back the right direction. So far, from my time working with Matt Judy, I’ve dropped 20 pounds and have seen a noticeable increase in my energy levels. I still have a way to go to reach my pre-covid weight and my goal of 190 pounds but everything is trending the right way!
Prior to starting the fit in 15 program, I was just feeling tired and run down. I’ve been at this a while and always on time, 2 million safe miles here at Prime, and consider myself a pretty decent driver. But, over the last few years I have gotten kinda stagnant I’m my ways. I work and I go home and work around our property. But I was putting on more weight, then came the cpap machine. Losing my 2 year physical card. So when they introduced this program I decided to give it a honest try. It has been working great. End of week 7 here for me. I feel better more energy. I have lost a little over 20lbs. My overall health has started improving. I got my 2 year physical card back. So I can stay out and keep providing for my family doing something I enjoy. The commitment DHF team has put into this is outstanding. If you ever served a lot of the exercises will be familiar. I called them calisthenics back in the day. New names same exercises. I hope if anyone is thinking about trying any of these programs they go ahead and pull the trigger. Also the diet part is broken down into the foods we can find on the road or in our fridges. Thanks to the Driver Health and Fitness team. I really appreciate it.
