Don’t let the “pre” in pre-diabetes fool you! Currently 1 in 3 adults have pre-diabetes, which is equal to 80 million adults. If left untreated, more than half of them will develop type-2 diabetes in five years. To help individuals prevent or delay the onset of type-2 diabetes, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) undertook a multi-year, multi-location clinical study to develop the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). The CDC study found that even small changes in lifestyle habits will result in weight loss and reduced risk of chronic disease.

HabitNu x FFC Can Help

For the past four years, HabitNu has been leading the efforts to reverse pre-diabetes by helping individuals develop healthy habits that last! The HabitNu program has been recognized by the CDC as a fully-covered medical benefit for Medicare and Medicare Advantage members and is now being offered to eligible members at Fitness Formula Club (FFC).

When you join HabitNu, you will be matched with a FFC lifestyle coach who will remain with you through the duration of the program, helping you modify your health behaviors, creating new habits and nudging you to stay motivated and engaged.

Within a few weeks of entering the program, you will start experiencing weight loss and notice improvements in your health.

You don’t have to pay anything to join – program starts July 10. Just visit habitnu.com/ffc to see if you are eligible!

Congratulations to FFC Oak Park June Member of the Month, Nikole Jeffery! We asked Nikole a few questions about her experience at FFC; here’s what she had to share.

What does membership at FFC mean to you?

I love it at FFC because they are supportive community for me. The staff is so nice and encouraging; they really want to help you. I moved here from Michigan, and it is nice to get to know like-minded, fun individuals. Being a member gives me a chance to meet new friends while working on my fitness goals. It’s a win-win!!

When at FFC you will find me….

You will find me mostly likely on the stair master, working out with my trainer Joe H., or saying hello to someone. Getting a trainer was the best decision I made. It kept me motivated, made working out fun, & showed me proper form. The trainers here are fantastic – get one now! They really make you feel welcome & its so much more fun working out with someone. If you’re willing to put the work in, your trainer will help you hit your goals in half the time. I’ve already lost 50 lbs. The best investment you could ever make is in yourself, and that’s what made it worth it for me.

I work out to…

To be the best person I know I can be. To relieve stress, and to feel great about myself. Every time I work out, my body is one day stronger than it was yesterday. I love seeing my body change & love challenging my body to do more. It’s very empowering. Plus, it’s more fun to go shopping now. I never thought working could be fun, but I love it. I look forward to it… most days :) Thank you FFC For helping me love working out & making this a great place to come to!!
