Diabetes - Prevention
Type 2 Diabetes Exercise Prevention Program
THE SILENT KILLER
Did you know that 1 in 4 Victorian adults have type 2 diabetes? And many of them never find out until it’s sometimes TOO LATE!
The problem is that many people don’t even know they are at risk.
Chances are that if you’re not at risk then your friend, spouse or colleague may be.
Should you be alarmed?
YES! Diabetes is Australia’s fastest growing chronic disease.
What you may not know is that people with diabetes are 4x more likely to develop heart disease.
What are the warning signs of diabetes?
You’re over 40 years old
You eat too many sugary and fatty foods
You lead a sedentary lifestyle
You have a family history of diabetes
If you have any of the above risk factors then you may be at risk and it’s time to take action.
Unless timely action is taken, the long term complication of diabetes includes blindness, limb amputation and heart attack..
GOOD NEWS: Type 2 Diabetes is preventable IF you address the causes in time!
Poor lifestyle choices cause a defect in insulin action / production which creates a perfect environment for Type 2 Diabetes and other diseases.
If you’re guilty of leading a sedentary lifestyle, indulging in artery-clogging fatty foods, and not taking care of yourself like you should then you’re at risk.
The REALITY is that if you are at risk then this problem won’t go away, it will only worsen unless you are proactive and take action now.
Scientific exercise program
to PREVENT the onset of diabetes!
As you know PREVENTION is better than a cure, so the sooner you start taking action the sooner the risk of developing diabetes and other diseases.
A DRUG FREE way of preventing diabetes.......
Type 2 Diabetes Exercise Prevention Program has been scientifically designed for individuals at high risk of developing diabetes.
This program is all about producing a lasting change...
In just 1-hour/week, over the next 8 weeks, you will receive the latest exercise and lifestyle education to enable you to prevent the onset of diabetes.
Diabetes is a serious disease and thus it requires expert supervision. That’s why each class is conducted under the close supervision of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist who will ensure you get maximum benefit in a safe environment.
An exercise physiologist (EP) is NOT the same as a sports coach, fitness trainer or personal trainer. Exercise Physiologists are 4-year University qualified allied health professionals who specialise in the delivery of exercise, lifestyle and behavioral modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases like diabetes.
As part of this 8-week program our qualified EP will provide you and the other participants with a physical activity and behavior change program to ensure you get real, tangible health benefits.
No guesswork – all science
How do you get real tangible health benefits in just 8 short weeks?
The secret lies in the unique nature of this program.
This Type 2 Diabetes Exercise Prevention Program is a scientific fully-supervised hands-on program. As part of the program you will receive a detailed report on your improvements and achievements so that you can track your progress and results.
The report will include a number of outcome measures aimed at guiding each participant through their stage of change.
Here’s just a short list of benefits you’ll receive from participating in this program:
- Progress tracking worksheets
- Body composition analysis
- Daily blood glucose monitoring (recorded in a graph)
- Food diary (completed daily)
- 8 educational topics including:
- Diabetes- the basics

There is no time to waste...
As part of the program you’ll also have access to a qualified EP so you can leverage his expertise to gain maximum health benefits.
Tailor-made especially for you
