|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Type 2 Diabetes||Behavioral: Functional circuit training with lifestyle behavior|
- Information and health screening: Interested persons are screened for eligibility and undergo a directed medical history and examination, echocardiogram (if not done within one year), limited ABI test, and maximal treadmill test with oxygen kinetics.
- Measure fitness level at the beginning of the exercise training, at 10 and 20 weeks: DEXA scan, body fat analysis, strength and balance measurements, and blood tests.
- Train for 10 weeks in a supervised small group format. Classes meet three times a week for an hour. Participants are randomly assigned to:
1) Flexibility and toning exercises + health education, or 2) Functional circuit training + home activities + tailored physical activity guidance.
4. Follow-up phone calls for an additional 10 weeks.
