Loyola's exercise program for patients who have had bariatric surgery
Benny Garcia, a physiologist at Gottlieb Center for Fitness, leads an exercise routine for patients of the Loyola Metabolic Surgery & Bariatric Care Center in Melrose Park.
Note: This exercise program has been specifically designed for post-baritric surgery patients. All exercises can be modified to accommodate your fitness level. Some examples of how to increase the intensity would be to step farther or faster and/or increase the weight used for the exercises.
Important: Although this workout is of a low intensity nature, as with any exercise program, please consult your physician before beginning any exercise program.
