Exercise is insurance for long term weight loss…I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I tell this to my clients.  So many people seek my advice for exercise and weight loss and although exercise in and of itself may not facilitate significant weight loss, it is paramount to long term weight loss and weight management.  I remember speaking at a weight loss surgery retreat this past year and before I began I went around the room and had each participant introduce themselves, explain where they were at with their weight loss journey, and tell me their current exercise habits.  This was a small group of about nine weight loss surgery patients, but as they revealed their stories…every single person who had not adopted a consistent exercise program had regained a substantial amount of their weight and every patient that was exercising regularly kept their weight off.  No real surprise to me and when I pointed out that fact to the group; well, let’s just say it proved my point.  What a great way to start a talk about exercise and weight loss…up front confirmation that this exercise stuff really works!

I’ve witnessed both the weight regain and weight loss in thousands of clients over the years and every time, the regularity of exercise literally “weighs in” on which direction a client will land…weight loss, weight management, or weight gain.   And this is why I just completed my second book about exercise and weight loss.  My newest book, Bariatric Fitness For Your New Life, gives you a functional approach with easy to follow instructions and step-by-step photos that will inform, educate, and outline functional exercise programs.  It is a post-surgery program of mental coaching, mobility work, strength training, and fat-burning cardio routines. Bariatric surgery is a highly effective way to take control of your weight, but it’s only one part of the solution.  A sound exercise program combined with healthy nutrition that is individualized for your current health and fitness level are key components to long term success.  Bariatric Fitness For Your New Life will give you the tools you need for success!  My first book, Rx Fitness for Weight Loss The Medically Sound Solution to Get Fit and Save Your Life, is geared to inform, educate and provide medically sound exercise guidance and motivation for the overweight and obese client who has always struggled with fitness specific to weight loss.  Both of my books will encourage and instruct every person no matter what fitness level to thoroughly understand how to exercise, injury free, in order to maximize long-term weight loss and improved overall health.  They also include real client testimonials and realistic fitness models that will encourage and motivate you to continue down your path of success.
