Diabetes Training Level 1,2,3

by Sheri Colberg


Course 1

This foundational course gives CPTs a greater knowledge and understanding of how to work with clients with diabetes or prediabetes, who may have health complications that must be managed for them to train safely and effectively. The Level 1 program allows trainers to master the basics about being physically active with diabetes or prediabetes, including types of training that are appropriate and critical, injury prevention, blood glucose monitoring, medication basics (and exercise effects), complications, exercise motivation, and more. CPTs need this information to work with these clients, which is one in three Americans currently.

Course 2

This intermediate course covers more on insulin resistance, interval and other key types of training, oral medications, food effects on activity, avoiding hypoglycemia, diabetes health complications, medication weight gain and loss, youth with diabetes, latest training trends, and overcoming specific and diabetes-related barriers to motion with effective goal-setting and technology use. This level takes it up a notch!

Course 3

This advanced course gives CPTs and other fitness professionals the summit of knowledge on working with clients with any type of diabetes or with prediabetes. It covers the final topics related to diabetes and prediabetes, including gestational diabetes and other concerns related to working with female clients. There is more information about the types of insulin people with type 1 diabetes use (and well as many with type 2 and gestational diabetes) and how to help dedicated athletes troubleshoot their performance issues. Finally, CPTs will learn more about the best technologies to use to train clients with diabetes and prediabetes. Trainers at this level will be in demand by clients with diabetes.
