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.
Once again, it's time to book the last Sunday of the month for the amazing HypoActive Fun Run/Walk/Ride. Come along for some fancy footwork or casual pedalling with a whole bunch of type 1's in training.The handsome seaside suburb of Williamstown is the location of choice and it doesn't matter how fit you are - just come along and do what you can.

The HypoActive Junior Program is coming along in leaps and bounds. We have a group of young type 1's all ready to do their best in the Gatorade Triathlon Series Race 5 at Catani Gardens in St Kilda on 30th March.
These young athletes will be showing the world that they are not just able to compete in the 300 m swim, 10 km bike ride and 3 km run, but they can do all this while managing type 1 diabetes at the same time. No mean feat.

Well done to the HypoActive Stingrays and their gallant land-lubbing support crew. This year's event over 21st and 22nd February at Fitzroy Pool saw a full type 1 team take to the water in relay around the clock and lap up 51.4 km by the end of the allotted 24 hours.
There's no fun like poolside blood test fun!!
Restores fluid. Restores good health.
