Pilot Flying J will offers travelers, especially truckers, access to workout centers in its locations. The 960-sq.-ft. centers will be operated by Snap Fitness and Rolling Strong and be located in many Pilot Flying J Travel Centers nationwide under the agreement.

“The new 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 & founder of Snap Fitness.

Each gym will be staffed by fitness professionals and include top-of-the-line fitness equipment, Snap Fitness said. A monthly membership of $29.95 will provide access to any of more than 1,300 Snap Fitness clubs worldwide. Family membership options for the trucking community will also be offered.

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

The first Snap Fitness Rolling Strong gym is scheduled to open in the fall at Pilot Flying J, with a total of 10 locations expected to be open and operating by the first quarter of 2012.
