Exercise Physiology


Exercise & its effects on human physiology & metabolism


American College of Sports Medicine; Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist ACSM-RCEP

Exercise is one of the greatest things we could give our bodies.

The positive effects of exercise can be found in virtually everything from head to toe. For individuals with diabetes, being active could mean significantly less insulin resistance, fewer complications related to diabetes, and increased strength, balance, and mobility.

Most importantly, exercise can make you feel better.

Our aim is to work with you to identify and break through barriers keeping you from either being active, or keeping you from progressing your training to the next level. With our approach, safety and appropriate glucose management are always a top priority.
