Charles O’Connell recognized the lack of guidance and support related to exercise and diabetes and founded FITSCRIPT.COM to help others with diabetes reach their fitness and diabetes management goals. In the fall of 2013, Charlie opened the FITSCRIPT Diabetes Fitness and Technology Center, a unique facility dedicated to developing multi-media content related to exercise, diabetes metrics, and integrated data from biometric devices. Through August of 2016, over 200,000 people living with diabetes around the world have utilized Fitscript’s GLUCOSEZONE program for exercise guidance and support, and thousands of exercise sessions have been performed in-person at the Fitscript Diabetes Fitness and Technology Center. Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at Yale New Haven Hospital in the fall of 1996, Charlie is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (’02) where he was a two-sport varsity athlete (Football and Track and Field), as well as a high school All-American in Track and Field.
