According to the Center for Disease Control 1 in 3 Americans are living with prediabetes. Of those people 15-30% will develop type 2 diabetes in the next 5 years. People who live with the disease are at higher risk for heart disease, blindness, kidney failure, stroke, and even loss of feet, toes, or legs.

The good news is that by losing weight, eating healthy, and becoming active you delay and maybe even prevent Type 2 Diabetes! Please allow us to help!

James Madison University and Sentara Rockingham Memorial Hospital are collaborating to examine diabetes prevention interventions. Our current study compares the effects of 2 different exercise protocols, in combination with educational classes, on an individual’s chance of developing Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease.

As part of the 16 week study you will receive FREE exercise training in a small group environment, FREE Centers for Disease Control and Prevention certified Diabetes Prevention Program classes that will assist you making positive physical activity and nutritional lifestyle changes. Additionally, for FREE, we will track blood work, nutrition, and other measures such as body fat %, and weight during the study so you can monitor your progress. All of which would cost thousands in a private lab!

If you are currently between the ages of 18-65, sedentary, and living with prediabetes, please contact us today. Don’t miss your opportunity to make healthy changes and help fight the chances of getting Type 2 Diabetes.
