The Diabetes Exercise Program is a 12-WEEK FITNESS INTERVENTION program designed to help manage diabetes and track changes in HbA1c levels and fitness parameters. This is an exercise program for those with Diabetes (Type I or II), pre-diabetics or for anyone who is at risk for developing either pre-diabetes or type II diabetes. It is proven that exercising consistently can lower blood glucose and improve A1C. When the A1C value is lowered, participants may be able to take fewer diabetes medications or less insulin.
