The programme is designed to positively impact the health of those with type 2 diabetes,
Munich-based fitness software supplier eGym has developed an intelligent training programme targeted at type 2 diabetes sufferers.

The programme, which will officially launch at FIBO in April, is based on research which suggests that the optimal training for type 2 diabetes patients features a high number of repetition that work all major muscle groups over long periods of times.

It is designed to positively impact the health of those with type 2 diabetes, and uses eGym’s training system, which creates a bespoke programme for the user, that incorporates periodisation, regular strength tests and automatic progression.

In order to test the programme’s efficacy eGym partnered with the University of Leipzig. The university observed 23 type 2 diabetes patients over the course of six months. During this time the participants worked out two-three times a week using the programme. At the end of the study researchers observed a significant reduction in the participants blood glucose levels, with nine of them experiencing such a dramatic reduction in glucose levels, that they were no longer classified as diabetic.

Kerstin Obenauer, country director for eGym UK, says: “We are excited to bring this product to market. Diabetes is estimated to affect more than four million people in the UK and this figure is on the rise. ise.

"By developing this programme, which addresses a particular health need, we can help operators achieve measurable health results for a much wider proportion of the population."
