Family Health Team High-Intensity Interval Training

Study Description

Family Health Team High-Intensity Interval Training

This randomized controlled trial explores the effectiveness of "prescribing" HIIT physical activity guidelines compared to population-based physical activity guidelines for patients with type 2 diabetes. It aims to study the effectiveness of such interventions for improving BMI, blood pressure, HbA1C, and motivation to engage in physical activity.

High-Intensity Interval Training Physical Activity (PA) Advice

This PA intervention will be primarily self-directed by the patients themselves. Each participant will receive a 1-page double-sided handout detailing their PA protocol. Participants in this arm will receive a High-Intensity-Interval-Training (HIIT) handout (developed based on research from Dr. Martin Gibala) detailing their PA recommendations. Participants will be instructed to follow their PA protocol, while noting down which days they completed the PA using a log booklet provided to them by D ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
