Exercise is the key to achieving the body you want (and deserve!) after weight-loss bariatric surgery. Getting started on a gradual exercise and physical activity plan is a very important part of all types of bariatric surgery, including the gastric-sleeve and gastric-bypass. An exercise plan should begin before your surgery and resume as soon as allowed by you doctor after your surgery. Any exercise or activity plan should be closely supervised by your doctor.
A consistent exercise or activity plan should teach you how to:
- Tone your muscles.
- Increase your energy.
- Boost your metabolism.
- Tighten loose skin caused by rapid weight loss.
- Lower your blood pressure.
- Make you feel better!
Try to get at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day. If you need help creating an exercise routine, visit one of our Centers for Health & Fitness today!
