Riding Himself Back To Health After a Diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes

Diagnosed with Type II diabetes in late 2017, I was placed on some medications to control my blood sugar levels. Those meds quickly became a part of my morning and evening routine. The combination of never allowing time for myself, a busy family and work life, and a job requiring me to sit for most of the day, had led to significant weight gain making working out very hard.

 

I joined a gym ‘again’ to do some cardio and strength training, hoping to regain control of my health. I went on and off for a couple of months and eventually stopped going. I have always tried to exercise, but would stop because I found the pounding on my legs and feet while running around the neighborhood or on a treadmill made my lower back and legs hurt. Eventually, I would stop working out.

I had a physical in late September and some of my lab test results were through the roof. I now had to take MORE meds, to get things under control. My doctor was honest and gave me a rundown of what my life would be like, if I didn’t take this disease seriously. I have a son in college and a daughter still in elementary school, I want to be around for them, and my wife. Nothing like a good butt kick to get you going!

 

The day I fell in love with working out was when I started riding at cycletribe, October 13, 2018. Indoor cycling gave me a euphoric feeling of a good balanced workout. Now, I look forward to the 5:55 AM classes. I notice I have more energy, I seem much happier, I have lost some significant weight and my clothes are fitting better. The best change since riding, however, is my last visit to the doctor. He mentioned my blood test results, sugar levels, were significantly better. He asked what had changed? I told him I had added indoor cycling classes to my diet, lol! He said, if my labs continue to improve, I will be taken off some of the meds. My goal is to get COMPLETELY off the medications!

I feel clear-headed and grateful I have accomplished something for me.  Sure, I’m tired and sweaty, but the outcome has been great. The recovery time is much better than any other workout I have done in the past. The community and everyone have been so welcoming. The 'Tribe' truly cares. I’m totally grateful to my friend and co-worker Josh E., who suggested I try a class. He said it was a great place to workout. Thank you for not giving up on me!

 

I can honestly say, I fell in love with this place since day one. I still feel euphoric and look forward to the rides. The instructors are great. Jayme and John truly care and it shows with the caliber of instructors they bring forward. I haven’t met all the instructors, but the ones I have had the pleasure to participate in class with are amazing. My journey to a healthy life has been charted and I know I will continue my health journey on a bike at cycletribe.
