30: Number of Americans in millions who have diabetes

25: Percentage over 65 who have it

6 Ways exercise helps:

*Lowers blood glucose

*blood pressure

*HDL cholesterol 


*lowers risk for pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke

*relieves stress

*strengthens the heart, muscles and bones

*improves blood circulation and tones muscles

*improves flexibility

3 Steps to prevent and manage Type 2:

*stay at a healthy weight

Type 2: The most common form

0: Reasons you’re too old to start exercising and eating right.

High blood glucose levels caused by either a lack of insulin or the body's inability to use insulin efficiently. Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older adults but can appear in young people.

If you think you might be at risk, talk to your doctor. If you have been diagnosed, be sure to know about proper eating and exercising and take care of yourself every day. 

​We've helped many people with diabetes get healthier and stronger through our programs. Exercise is proven to be an important part of keeping yourself healthy. We'd love to help! Call us at 817-600-7684 and we'll talk soon. 

Here’s what you can expect when you jump on a quick call with us: 

1). INCREASED CLARITY: We’ll listen to whatever is going on for you right now, ask some questions to better understand your situation (a lot of times what you THINK is the problem, isn’t the real problem. That’s why you want to talk to an expert… to gain new insights). And we’ll help you pinpoint the real problems holding you back from success.

2). AN ACTION PLAN: Nothing changes until YOU change. You must start taking ACTION in a new direction. Once we’ve distilled your challenges down, we’ll then share specific action steps you can take to start generating forward momentum toward achieving your goals.

3). ADDITIONAL RESOURCES: Not everyone is a good fit for our programs (seriously). But if appropriate, we’ll provide an overview on how our programs work and additional systems, tools, and resources that can rapidly accelerate progress towards your goals in the weeks and months ahead.
