In brief: Yes, definitely

Exercise requires fuel, and the two main sources of fuel are sugar and fat.
As one exercises, the activity will burn sugar, thus lowering ones sugar level. Consistently lowering your blood sugar will ultimately lower the HGB A1c levels. This is assuming that your diet remains relatively unchanged.
