Madison, WI—Save Our Security (SOS) Senior Council and a local fitness trainer will offer a free 16MinuteWorkout.Com training Friday to celebrate National Diabetes Month. It will show people how to be healthier, control diabetes, lose weight, inches and feel better with just minutes a day. Saturday is National Diabetes Day.

The free session will be the Madison Senior Center, 333 West Mifflin, Madison on Friday, November 13th at 1:00 PM. Wear comfortable clothes and invite your friends.

“The 16 Minute Workout gives people an easy way to control diabetes and feel better in just a few minutes a day,” said Brett Hulsey MNS, creator of the 16 Minute Workout and a certified personal trainer. “You can feel better on the first day and see results quickly.”

The 16 Minute Workout is based on revolutionary new studies that show that four minutes of cardio training like brisk walking can reduce sugar sensitivity. It also includes core exercises, muscle strengthening, and stretching done at least three times a week.

“The 16 Minute Workout helped me after my surgery. The cardio training really helped me recover and lose 10 pounds,” said Nancy O., a Dane County Save our Security President.

A recent American Heart Association study showed short burst exercise reduced blood sugar levels three time more than 30 minutes of steady exercise.

According to the Harvard Medical School, “Exercise has the power to keep you from developing high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and some forms of cancer. In fact, exercise can lower your risk of heart disease as effectively as medications! It can also help ease arthritis pain, sharpen your memory, trim your waistline, and preserve your independence.”

There are many proven benefits to the 16 Minute WorkoutTM or any sustained, structured exercise program, such as you:

*Can live longer and reduce your risk of cancers, like breast cancer;

*Can feel better and reduce the risk of depression;

*Can enjoy exercise more; and

* Can lose fat, inches, and weight and burn 200 more calories a day.

“The 16 Minute Workout is very simple. The key is to get moving and do something for yourself to be healthier,” Hulsey said. “Many people say they don’t have time to work out. If you don’t have 16 minutes, as little as 36 seconds of cardio exercise, six-six second bursts, can be productive, one study showed.”

As always, consult your doctor and fitness professional before embarking on an exercise regime. If it hurts, don’t do it. If you have chest or other serious pain, see a doctor immediately.
