very very simple explanation of such vast topic

Let me say this - as a fitness professional that has Type II Diabetes, I am glad that ACE is providing these types of courses. The benefits of fitness-related activity with respect to managing diabetes can be profound. On the other hand, the course presentation seemed at times halting and hesitant and there were some almost cringe worthy moments such as when the presenter extols the six "benefits" of having diabetes, which are stated almost as though they are automatic. Believe me, finding benefits to having a disease that is the number three cause of death is possible, but takes guidance, determination and foresight. I feel that's where we fitness professionals can really help and that is one of the reasons I signed up for this profession. Criticisms aside, in sum I think the course is worth taking, especially if you have little or no knowledge about diabetes.


ACE RESPONSE: Thank you for bringing such valuable insight into this course. We will take your observations into account and are pleased that overall you found it to be worth it as we too believe discussing how health and fitness professionals can play a key role in helping clients properly manage chronic diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes.
