“So far I’ve been able to complete every workout – which surprises me!  I’m usually good starting out, but then get lazy, but the support from the e-mails and on-line coaches are doing the job of keeping me going!! I downloaded the information from my Realtime Glucose sensor, and I went from being in-range (BG Range is 80 to 140)  from 40% of the time to 67% from week one to week two!!  I’m starting to really watch what I eat now. I am so glad that I joined WILDfit!! ” -Joyce, age 52, type 1 diabetes for 35 years

“I must say that last week training plan had so much more information on diabetes than even my endocrinologist has shared with me.  Thank you for such a wonderful resource!” -Sharon,age 55,  type 2 diabetes for 10 years 

“I’m continuing to enjoy the teaching on nutrition, exercise, cycling drills and training – the TeamWILD coaches are soooooooooo smart!!! “ -Greg, age 58, pre-diabetes

“I JOGGED!! It lasted for about 30 seconds and I hope no one was watching but I did it! I even made my sleek canine companion move her tail a little faster!! I have no idea why I tried that. I hate jogging. But I’m smiling right now!” – Cassie, age 54, type 2 diabetes for 10 years

“Things I’m noticing as I make my way to my first 100 mile cycling event: My butt doesn’t hurt much anymore. I’m running around like a CRAZY man on the basketball court and my insulin sensitivity is increasing!” – Scott, age 36, type 1 diabetes for 32 years

“My TeamWILD experience was the best athletic experience I’ve ever had. I learned how to manage my diabetes with endurance exercise which I really didn’t understand before I joined. I learned I can actually eat while I exercise!” – Sarah, age 27, type 1 diabetes for 17 years

“I love TeamWILD and the amazing people I’ve met along the way. Without this group, I wouldn’t have even dreamed of doing an Ironman. Now I’m on my way to my second one.” – Karen, age 46, type 1 diabetes for 19 yrs

“Team WILD has trained people with diabetes to run marathons, ride centuries, and even complete a full Ironman triathlon. Yet, there are programs for people of all levels. Whether you are already active or just starting out and whether you have type 1, type 2, prediabetes, or no diabetes, Team WILD has a place for you. Mari has a great staff of coaches, nutritionists, CDEs, and sports psychologists who will listen to your goals and help you get there. TeamWILD rocks!” - Sarah, type 1 diabetes

As CEO of the American Diabetes Association, I have had the opportunity to work with many great volunteers and Mari has consistently stood out. As TeamWILD has has continued to grow, her leadership qualities have had the opportunity to be showcased. Mari has many exemplary qualities, but a few that I’d like to highlight are her passion, her vision, her commitment to excellence and her dedication to work with and care for making life better for those with diabetes. Collaborating with her and TeamWILD has been a very worthwhile experience for the American Diabetes Association.” -Larry Hausner
