Type 2 Diabetes & Exercise - A specialised exercise program to help people with diabetes control their blood sugar levels.

Beat the Betes is a 10 week exercise program designed specifically to help people who have type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance or impaired glucose tolerance.  The exercise benefits include improved glucose sensitivity, weight loss, and decreased chance of developing further chronic disease associated with diabetes.

The program consists of of an initial assessment followed by 8 weeks of group sessions and is concluded with a final assessment and development of a home based program. Alternatively if the patient wishes to continue they can enter one of our general group classes.
