Catalyst Fit is proud to team with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in offering the Diabetes Prevention Program.  

The DPP is a lifestyle change program proven to delay and even prevent Type 2 diabetes and other significant health problems in at-risk populations.

While anyone is welcome, the DPP is primarily intended for adults with prediabetes. 

As one of the few fitness centers with conditional CDC DPP approval, Catalyst Fit uses a holistic program focusing on improving the body-insulin relationship through nutrition, exercise and activity, stress control, and general wellness.

Course Overview

The DPP is a year-long program of education, nutrition, weight and activity monitoring, and personal and community support.

Classes are held weekly, becoming less frequent as the year progresses.  A total of 23 classes are held per year, and a weekly dietary (including complementary access to our nutrition software) and activity log will be kept.  Ketone and/or Glucose tests will be taken periodically.  Clients will receive ongoing support throughout the program from Catalyst Fit.

The CDC target is a year-over-year weight loss of at least 5% and improved blood markers.  Catalyst Fit takes this a step further and expects that full compliance will result in a weight loss of at least 10% and a reversal of prediabetic indicators.
