We are Super10FIT
Created by a Type II diabetic
Backed by Research
Over the last several years, researchers have slowly but surely reached the consensus that high intensity interval training (HIIT), which is characterized by relatively short bursts of intense exercise followed by periods of rest, far outperforms conventional aerobic endurance type exercises.
Not only does it appear to beat conventional cardio as the most effective and efficient form of exercise, it also provides health benefits you simply cannot get from regular aerobics, such as a tremendous boost in human growth hormone (HGH), aka the "fitness hormone."
The O.G. equipment for the Super10 High Intensity Interval Trianing. You can find one at your local gym, or pick up one fairly inexpensively on Amazon.
Research suggests that by doing HIIT like Super10Fit, you can reap the same cardiovascular and insulin sensitivity benefits in 10 minutes as you would after 45 minutes of moderate exertion.
In June of 2008 I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. My doctor sent me to talk things over with the practitioner in charge of newly diagnosed diabetes patients. In that meeting I was given the dietary and exercise guidelines that were proscribed by the American Diabetes Association. I was immediately skeptical of these recommendations. For example: the recommendation to make sure my carb intake was less than 60 grams a meal made no sense to me as I had just been told that my body was not effectively processing carbohydrates at all. It seemed more logical to cut out as much carbohydrate from my diet as possible. When I queried about the discrepancy, the nurse simply indicated that low carb diets were simply not a sustainable change for the long run.
So, being a former NeXT and Apple software engineer with training in statistics and debugging, I began to study the whole process of metabolism, lipids, insulin sensitivity, and the like. It became very clear that there was a large body of research that was being ignored when it came to effective eating and exercise strategies. It was also clear that the Standard American Diet (SAD) was pretty unhealthy for most Type II diabetics.
In the process of trying to beat back diabetes using diet and exercise alone, I discovered the High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) protocol. Not only was it good for people trying to improve their insulin sensitivity, it turns out the research shows it's pretty good for almost everyone who is not a full time athlete. In 2016, I decided that I would create an app to make it easy for anyone to do HIIT and I began to use it for my own routines. Now, in 2018, I've settled on a super simple UI and I am launching it in the app stores. In addition, I'm working in my spare time on an enhanced version of the application for diabetics and people who want to track their blood lipid profiles alongside their HIIT activity.
I am currently very happily employed at Intel where I have the good fortune to work for Intel Sports. I've had success and failure in my battle with diabetes, but when I use Super10Fit I enjoy many more normal blood glucose days and I have a great relationship with my Endocrinologist. Your experiences will be your own and I highly encourage you to work your healthcare professional find the diet and exercise routine that work for you. Hopefully Super10Fit will be of assistance in that journey.
To your better health!
