By: Snap Fitness

CHANHASSEN, Minn., – Snap Fitness, the world’s fastest-growing franchisor of 24/7 express fitness centers, partnered with Rolling Strong™, the leader in health and wellness for professional drivers, to offer an easy-in, easy-out workout concept at numerous Pilot Flying J locations nationwide. On the heels of the overwhelming success of the first location in Dallas, Texas, the next Rolling Strong gym will celebrate its grand opening on January 31, 2013, at the Pilot Travel Center in Lebanon, Tennessee.

“The Snap Fitness Rolling Strong gyms are designed to accommodate the trucking community and those who travel frequently for business or vacation, so they can get the workouts they need quickly and conveniently,” said Peter Taunton, CEO and Founder of Snap Fitness. “We hope these express fitness centers will help thousands of daily travelers achieve their fitness goals and get better results while on the road.”

Located at 921 Murfreesboro Road, just off Interstate 40 in Lebanon, the newest Snap Fitness Rolling Strong location will boast the same world-class staff, instructors, trainers, and top-of-the-line fitness equipment found at the Dallas location, including treadmills, ellipticals, leg machines, chest machines, dumbbells, and a bench press to name a few.

“Pilot Flying J understands the challenge professional drivers face in maintaining a healthy lifestyle while on the road,” said Pilot Flying J CEO John Compton. “That’s why we are pleased to partner with Snap Fitness and Rolling Strong to provide convenient workout locations to help drivers improve their health and fitness.”

Each Snap Fitness Rolling Strong gym, located at a Pilot Flying J travel center or travel plaza, is staffed by fitness professionals and includes a variety of top-of-the-line fitness equipment. Monthly gym dues are $19.95 for the trucking community, which provides access to the Snap Fitness Rolling Strong gyms as well as any of the 1,300 Snap Fitness clubs worldwide. Family membership options for the trucking community are available as well. Current Snap Fitness club members are also able to use the amenities at the Snap Fitness Rolling Strong gyms at no extra charge.

“The opening of the Lebanon, TN location is another step towards delivering driver-designed and driver-delivered health and wellness solutions for the true “road athletes” out there on the road,” said Bob Perry, “The Trucker Trainer™” and President of Rolling Strong. “Rolling Strong is proud to be working with Snap Fitness and Pilot Flying J to bring these tools to reality.”
