In this study, we conducted videocall based assessment of physical fitness among 470 participants of Diabefly® program with diabetes. Among these 470 participants, 69.4% were in the obese category with 42.1% being non-exercisers. 42.1% were aerobic exercisers while only 15.7% were exercisers. Mild to moderate pain was reported by 36.1% participants.
