At HypoActive, we believe diabetics should harness their insulin injected engines.
Exercise promotes a whole range of health benefits, and for diabetics, this is especially important. But it's not easy. It can be complicated and frustrating. No one wants hypos (or hypers) during or after exercise.
The mission statement for HypoActive is: to inspire and enable the Type 1 community to live a more physically active lifestyle.
We are your peers. We too go through the same challenges surrounding exercise in a busy lifestyle while managing type 1 diabetes. We welcome anyone who is interested in exercise regardless of their current level of activity and experience.
HypoActive has had a team of type 1's - the HypoActive Stingrays - in the MS Mega Swim for years. This is one of our oldest and most fun events. It's a 24-hour relay at Fitzroy pool and if you can swim a few lengths or support our team please get in touch and join up for this cool and watery event.
Well done to all those who have joined the ever-growing number of type 1 attendees at John Thompson's incredibly popular HypoActive Fun Runs.
The next Run is in splendid Westerfolds Park on Sunday 26th May 2013 at 9.30 am (SHARP!). Meet in Car Park A, next to Mia Mia Gallery/Cafe.
Exciting news that HypoActive has been asked to assist in one of Monash University's top research projects for 2013. The Dept of Physiology is conducting cutting edge data-gathering on the effects of exercise on the Achilles tendons of people with type 1 diabetes. This could be a great opportunity for you to both help out with this scientific coup and start enjoying the many benefits of getting active with the HypoActive Run Club.
