Special Populations 6-CEC Course: Diabetes for the Exercise Professional

Presented by: Sheri R. Colberg, PhD, FACSM

Description

This CEC course was created to give fitness professionals a greater knowledge and understanding of how to work with clients with either diabetes or prediabetes, who may have health complications that must be managed during physical activity for them to train safely and effectively (without causing physical or emotional harm). Fitness professionals need special training in these topics to work with these clients, which is one in three Americans currently (100 million people).
