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.
