Workout classes



Recommended Posts

Hi I am 7 weeks post op & have been walking for exercise up to now. I got cleared to start with 10 lb weights & increase as tolerated. I am wondering when did anyone start any workout classes in their local gym classes? I really want to pick up some classes too. Thank you :)

I could barely walk for the first year or so - my weight was just too high and my joints/back too damaged. I still have never went to a class but I go do go to the gym twice a week. Today I did 35 minutes on the incline setting on the treadmill going very briskly. Almost needed oxygen but this is my commitment. Most of us eventually do give in and do something about getting physically fit. The weight loss stops being a passive process after a while.

I started at 6 weeks post op with a personal trainer and doing orange theory fitness classes those are pretty intense but as long as your doctor okays it and you go at your own pace you should be fine!

I was taking aquafit classes for over a year prior to surgery. Surgery was really easy for me. I wanted to return to gym at my 2 week check up but my large incision wasn't healed enough. Once that one scabbed over at 3 weeks I was back in pool.

Started Zumba six weeks before surgery, resumed 7 weeks after surgery. Look on Groupon or Amazon local for deals, you can try all kinds of new things. I found the studio I've been at for 2 years that way.

I had surgery on 7/6/15 and I started aqua aerobics on 9/1/15, two days a week at a community college.

If you can find a Pound class in your area--they are amazing! It is super fun and a full body work out that can be adjusted to fit any fitness level. Plus you get to use weighted drumsticks and make lots of noise!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
