  1. Take Control of Diabetes through Exercise!

    Being a type 1 diabetic myself, I understand first hand how important it is to make exercise a routine part of your day. Did you know that both type 1 and type 2 diabetics who exercise daily for 9 months, their glucose metabolism (the body’s ability to process blood sugar) improved 87%, and their fasting glucose (a marker of diabetes risk) decreased significantly?This can be as easy as taking a 15-minute walk everyday, even starting at 5-10 minutes sessions and working your way up.

    With Summer right around the corner, getting in shape should be high on your priority list. Advanced fitness strategies are built upon a foundation of intense, fast paced physical training, resulting in fat burning and muscle growth. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is an awesome training method for getting your body in the condition you sit around always wishing it was in. Although HIIT has been well known for a long time, its popularity has been revitalized as of late. By definition, HIIT is the practice of working out at a very fast pace, anywhere from 15 seconds to 2 minutes and then breaking for that same time period, rinse - repeat. High Intensity Interval Training is a training program was built around the Soccer Mom, who doesn't have enough spare time to spend 2 hours a day at the gym, the Dad that has to work long days and take the kids to school in the morning - people that lead extremely busy lives and can't afford to take over an hour out their day to exercise.
