CUSTOMIZED COACHING

One thing we know for sure about weight loss and maintaining motion: There is no magic one-size-fits-all solution. Our focus is on you!

BARIATRIC COUNSELING

 

You need to appreciate 3 basic perceptions; strengthening, flexibility and stamina. At around 6 weeks post-op with medical approval, you should be inspired to start walking at a rapid pace 3 times per day for 10-minute intervals. So you are not overwhelmed, I do not have you watch your heart rate. I do request you log food, and exercise and hydration levels so you are being responsible for your dedication to getting healthy.

As your confidence starts to build, encourage yourself to walk once per day for 30 minutes and start to include some strength training exercises. I find resistance bands are a great option. As you advance and are showing eagerness for exercise, I use this time to discuss how you are feeling about your achievement so we can add more exercise variety to your routine. Ready for the gym or perhaps water aerobics? I ask during every coaching session how your joints are feeling. Are you having any pain following exercising? Is the exercise plan on point or is it too challenging for your joints? I always stress the significance of staying hydrated since your anatomy has been altered and you have a different rate of absorption. You must not consume sports drinks. The sugar, even in small amounts, can cause metabolic dumping syndrome which can make you brutally sick for an hour or so.

If on track with the exercise targets to date, it may be time to increase workouts to include free weights, biking, or yoga. You may be at a weight standard gym equipment can support. This is the time you will start showing great passion. You have lost weight; you are exercising and feeling strong. You may see you have started to develop loose and sagging skin. This is very normal after weight loss surgery.

You are urged to wear tighter exercise clothing that is wicking, and to use a body gel such as Body Glide to prevent friction irritation to the areas of loose skin. This is also the time you may feel indestructible and start taking on too much too soon. I will reassure you at every opportunity, but also caution you where necessary.

I help you comprehend queues your body is giving you. Are you eating plenty of protein before your workout? Are you getting the proper quantity of calories daily? All of this is fundamental to the long-term success of your end goal. You are learning an entire new way to eat, exercise and live. You have been given a second opportunity at life, and as your coach, it is so satisfying to see you bloom in an excited and healthy person. It is a privilege to be part of the process you began. This journey is nothing to dread.
