Helping You Achieve Sustainable Results

In addition to medication and dietary modifications, exercise, including progressive resistance training, is essential to managing diabetes. Just one period of relatively intense exercise has a beneficial impact on:

 

● Insulin sensitivity
● Glycogen and fat oxidation
● Glucose tolerance
● Blood pressure
● Resting metabolism
● Blood sugar levels

 

We’ll monitor your progress through tracking test results, body composition assessments, and strength and cardiovascular endurance measurements. Over time, our personalized approach built around exercise, especially when combined with a healthy diet and weight management, can help:

 

● Strengthen the heart
● Reduce plasma viscosity
● Reverse damage within the circulatory system
● Increase insulin sensitivity

 

In some cases, this approach may reverse conditions related to diabetes such as hypertension, hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia.
