…It is amazing how exercise can break down the typical social barriers and create an instant human connection. I know I am onto something because I have seen the impact of such a simple act. Maybe someday I can build what was once a small community boxing program that helped young people find direction, into a scalable program that promotes unity, addresses racism and unnecessary diversity. It can teach people to take care of themselves through fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle. We can build in the use of technology to create mass unity and connect people that are doing the right thing as opposed to the media that often promotes the wrong message. Kind of like what we are doing with Rolling Strong, but with the youth.
I had the pleasure to interview Steve Kane. Steve is addressing one of the largest issues for trucking operations- driver health and wellness. As President of Rolling Strong, a fitness and wellness company that uses a mobile app to help carriers and drivers improve compliance with CDL medical requirements and to implement and manage their wellness initiatives, he leads a team of developers and coaches who are working to raise the awareness level of the importance of this issue with fleets. Kane also works with the American Trucking Associations and other trucking organizations to improve the health and fitness of truck drivers across the industry. Kane has 20 years of trucking operations management and software and mobile application development experience. Today, he brings his skills and passion for fitness and wellness to the driver community through Rolling Strong. Prior to joining the company, he was Director of Innovation at Velociti Inc.
