Jumpstart - Programme For People With Diabetes

Our 10-week diabetes health care programme Jumpstart is a very special part of YMCA Auckland’s offerings. Jumpstart lets people with diabetes or pre-diabetes to take back some control of their body. The exercise component of the programme includes a variety of different activities – from walking and simple stretching to weight training. Our instructors are thoroughly trained in the Jumpstart programme, meaning that participants know that they are in the best hands to help guide them through their fitness goals.

But there’s more to the programme than just exercise – support from Pharmaco, Diabetes NZ and ProCare means that Jumpstart is a total lifestyle package, including information sessions with medical experts and nutritionists. The programme is referral based, with people joining Jumpstart at the recommendation of their doctor or specialist nurse.

Don’t let diabetes slow you down – our Jumpstart programme can help guide you to a fitter, healthier tomorrow.
