These are the most common reasons type 1s (including my clients) don’t make progress in the gym:

  1. Your diet is throwing things off
  2. Your high/low bgls are holding you back
  3. You aren’t training consistently
  4. You aren’t training often enough
  5. You’re following an unsuitable program
  6. You rely on how you feel to dictate what you do and when - aka. motivation

 

Once we get to the bottom of what’s halting your progress towards your goals, we can put a plan in place and make some changes to get you there! 

Everyone I work with has one or all of these things holding them back - and my clients see amazing results after completing my program and 

  • improving their diet
  • making changes to how much they’re eating
  • improving their bgl management to avoid highs and lows
  • therefore needing less insulin and less hypo treatments (aka calories)
  • therefore have more energy and want to get more active
  • start using one of my FLP training workout programs and building muscle because it feels good - not because it’s a chore
  • start to believe in themselves
  • increase confidence in themselves in all areas: mind, body & decisions

 

These are some general outcomes but do remember to always seek advice from your medical practitioner before changing anything about your diabetes management. The above information is not medical advice.
