Siphiwe Baleka is a graduate of Yale University and a certified personal trainer. After failing to qualify for the 1992 US Olympic Swimming Trials, Siphiwe set out to travel the world, visiting and living in 23 countries in North, South, and Central America, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.
He began a truck driving career in early 2008 with Prime Inc. Within weeks, he started gaining weight, and he did not like it. To get rid of his “trucker’s gut”, he began to work out while on the road. This included body weight exercises, running, cycling, swimming, or a combination of the two.
In 2011, while still a full-time lease operator with Prime, Siphiwe competed in eight triathlons, winning two of them. He also became the U.S. Masters National Swimming Champion in two events gaining him the reputation as the “Fittest Truck Driver in America.”
In 2012 Siphiwe launched his consulting company called Fitness Trucking and was named Prime’s Driver Health and Fitness Coach. His successful Thirteen-Week Basic Program averages 19 lbs. of weight loss per driver and has become the model Driver Health and Fitness program in the country.
Siphiwe also serves as the Driver Health Editor for both Road King magazine in the United States and The Trucking Network magazine in Canada. Siphiwe has published a book about his 2012 Ironman South Africa experience and was recently featured in the 2014 April Edition of Men’s Health Magazine, the January 26th Issue of Sports Illustrated, and was featured on Fox Sports Live.
