In addition to surgeons and dietitians, the Center for Weight Loss has partnered with a team of exercise physiologists from the Fauquier Health Wellness Center to expand our multidisciplinary approach to patient success. Intentional movement is a key component of a happy, healthy lifestyle. Regular physical activity will assist in weight reduction and maintenance, reduce all-cause mortality, improve balance and mobility, and boost confidence, self-esteem, and self-efficacy.
The Wellness Center is offering pre and post-surgery membership packages at a discounted rate to assist patients with their treatment plan. Included in these memberships are one-on-one assessments with the exercise physiologists, where patient goals and current abilities can be compiled into a personalized plan. Patients will continue to work with exercise physiologists to develop their activity program over the course of several weeks, and will have access to the Wellness Center’s facilities and classes.
