My name is Paul Coker and I have been living with and exercising with type 1 diabetes for 43 years, I have climbed Kilimanjaro and run 40 half marathons in a single year and I now spend my time helping people like you who have type 1 diabetes to develop strategies so that you can exercise without your diabetes getting in the way (too much).
When I built this course I needed a lot of help from experts on YouTube to help me to create the videos and the best experience for you. I soon realised that most of the experts love to film themselves talking and all I really wanted was an answer to my question in 5 minutes or less. Can you relate to that? So I decided to create a series of short lessons that give you the essential tools and stratgies about exercise and managing your type 1 diabetes.
