Preventing Diabetes, the Titan Way, with Daily Cardio
November is American Diabetes Month! More than 246 million people worldwide have diabetes; that
number is expected to raise to 380 million by 2020. (2) Although there is no certain way to know your
exact chances of getting diabetes, there are several ways to lower your risk. Titan Fitness encourages
increased aerobic activity to improve blood circulation and your muscles’ ability to use insulin and
absorb glucose. (1)
Cardio, the Lifestyle
True, we all want wash board abs and monster quads, but the bigger picture is having a healthy lifestyle.
How can you be more consistent with your daily cardio? The easiest way is to have a plan. Set an alarm
and get it done!
The Cardio Tour
Keep cardio interesting by incorporating a mix of walking, running, cycling and rowing. Explore different
types of affordable cardio equipment at Titan.fitness! A great gym will also have these options available to you.
Cardio for a Cause
If you like to give back, cardio for a cause is just for you! Sign up for events in your community that
benefit diabetes. The American Diabetes Association has several rides and walks throughout the year.
Cardio at No Costs
Burn calories in your living room with mountain climbers, squat thrusts and high knees. Turn up the
volume! Aerobic exercise can be more fun with great music and energy. With the perfect playlist, your
bodyweight boot camp will be over in no time!
