Integrating exercise into your daily routine is a key part of achieving your weight loss objectives after bariatric surgery. Everyone’s recovery time is different, and some patients might feel ready to exercise sooner than others, but a good rule of thumb is to start slow to prevent your risk of injury and only once you are cleared by your physician.

The three types of exercise you should focus on are:

  • Cardio – burns calories to give you more energy
  • Strength training – keeps muscles strong and lean
  • Flexibility training – prevents injury and helps reduce post-workout soreness

As part of Inspira’s bariatric surgery program, patients engage in exercise education to help them become physically active after surgery. In addition, patients are encouraged to sign-up for the Fitness Connection’s PREP (Physician Referred Exercise Program), a 90-day supervised exercise program that incorporates your physician’s recommendations with the help of a medical exercise specialist.
