by Sonia Straface

TORONTO, Ont. – There’s just one week left of the Healthy Fleet Challenge and the competition is heating up as participants are trying their best to get in all the steps they can before the May 31 deadline.

The last week of the competition has seen new individual leaders who have been stepping it up for the month of May, as well as new capabilities.

Recently, Healthy Trucker representatives have announced that the challenge has now integrated with the Withings devices and app. Withings devices are similar to Fitbit trackers that log one’s daily movement. Withings also has an app that can be downloaded to your smartphone and much like the MOVES application,  tracks your activity.

“This is a great opportunity for those who already have a Withings device, or for those who are looking for more options when purchasing a device for the challenge.,” said Andrea Morley, nutritionist and health coach at Healthy Trucker. “Withings has a great product line and we are thrilled to be able to incorporate them into the challenge.”

With the competition coming to an end, the challenge has reached some incredible numbers. For this month, all participants have walked 129,216,514 steps so far. That’s more than 64,000 miles and upward of 5.9 million calories burned.
