The “Why” of Type One Fitness
Type One Fitness is a boutique fitness center with a unique focus on diabetes wellness that is open to everyone. Type One Fitness provides a place where the type 1 diabetes community can find support for the autoimmune disease and end the stigma of what type 1 diabetes is and who it affects through education and awareness programming. Type One Fitness provides a fully integrated health program for type 1 diabetes patients and the general public. The center offers a place for real time conversation and education for those living with type 1 diabetes. A place that improves the lives of others in the community by offering support not only for individuals with diabetes, but also for parents and caregivers, partners, siblings and friends as well. Outside of a medical facility, there is currently no facility that welcomes and merges a comprehensive type 1 diabetes connection with the general public. Type One Fitness does just that while enabling those affected by the disease to obtain any non-medical support that they need.
Type One Fitness is the brainchild of Type One, Inc. founders Paul Foti and Tyson Sunnerberg. Sunnerberg was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 21 years old and knows firsthand that the right resources and support make all the difference in the world when it comes to managing this disease. Five years ago, at the age of five, Sunnerberg’s daughter Elyse was also diagnosed with type 1, which intensified his drive toward a cure, and provided a firsthand understanding of the constant challenges the entire family faces when living with an individual with type 1 diabetes.
Offering fitness, nutrition and support, the center is open Monday – Thursday 5:30 – 11 AM and 2 – 7 PM, Friday 5:30 – 11 AM and 2 – 5 PM, and Saturday – Sunday 8 AM – 12 PM.
