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.
