Our exercise and fitness program is an essential component of a successful weight loss surgery program. Participation in exercise before your surgery will greatly improve your ability to move around after surgery and speed up your recovery process. A personal trainer and professional staff will also work with you after your surgery to help increase the likelihood of maintaining a successful postoperative outcome.


Understanding your lifestyle will play an important part in determining your fitness program. Our exercise physiologist works with each patient individually to develop an exercise program tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Our team of physicians, nurses, exercise physiologists and nutritionists pay close attention to your overall health pre- and post-surgery to ensure that you can safely begin a regular exercise program, and they will help you remain focused on your goals.
