LONDON, ON – The 1st leg of the 2019 Healthy Fleet 10 Pound Challenge has wrapped up, and the results have proven it to be the most successful challenge yet.
Over the course of January & February, participants from across North America lost a total of 1436 pounds and gained a ton of confidence, energy, and motivation. The challenge lived up to its name, with an average weight loss of 10.6 pounds per person.
Those who were involved were educated and motivated by the coach via email, making the challenge easy to participate in no matter where they were. They took part in weekly mini challenges, like cutting out pop and eating meals on smaller plates to help with portion control, which kept them engaged and focused on attainable goals each week.
Andrea Morley, Nutritionist at Healthy Trucker, said, “Weight loss can be overwhelming, especially for those on the road, so I broke down the steps they would need to take into fun weekly challenges, and delivered the content in an easy to follow, simple way.”
It’s those mini challenges and the simple concept that many participants are attributing their success to, with one participant stating the following:
“I’ve often faced the need to lose weight, but the “less food/more exercise” mantra is way too familiar. Enter the 10 Pound Challenge weekly Mini Challenges! Choosing a new and achievable goal each week helped keep me motivated and on track. Plus, they’re fun!”- Shelley, BC Trucking Association
Companies and associations of all sizes joined in on the challenge, with anywhere from 1-30 drivers and staff participating from each team.

- Erb Group of Companies: 217.9
- Challenger Motor Freight: 144.5
- Trans-Frt McNamara: 118.0
- Sutco Transportation: 110.3
