The Glucose Project - Diabetes Program in ACT

Empower EP | 8 Week Diabetes Program

Diabetes can make it difficult to exercise, lose weight, get motivated and feel safe exercising. Our Diabetes program aims to change that.

EmPower’s Glucose Project is a practical and educational group exercise program that assists people living with Diabetes (Type 1, Type 2, or Pre-Diabetes) by providing skills and behaviours needed to improve blood glucose management, increase fitness and achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.
We understand exercising with Diabetes can be a daunting task, however we are here to help!
