Yeah - rushed day, sorry.

Meant to say "Trainer".

He is an insuline dependent diabetic, still learning about all the ins & outs of it as he was diagnosed in his LATE 30's!! Yep, not T2, I know what you're thinking... The trainer sees the beni's of CrossFit, but is scared of how his body will react to the stress-level. He's always been able to follow a bodybuilding protocol with great results, but scaled cardio to very low-intensity...

My question is how will CrossFit work with a T1 diabetic? What should we be looking at for scalability? BESIDES checking blood sugard before/during/after? Any pointers to help ease his concerns with CrossFit?
