Band Fit


Nutrition and Exercise Program


The Band Fit Program is a four-week program incorporating both nutrition information, and safe, low impact exercise with gentle stretching and strength training. This program is specifically designed for patients following a Gastric Banding or Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure.

The course will be run by a Registered Dietitian and Physiotherapist.

Our aim is to get patients moving and motivated to continue a healthy active lifestyle after their operation, and to be successful in the dietary changes required following a band or sleeve. Information will be given on how to exercise safely and effectively, and how to access appropriate exercise classes in the community after the program finishes, as well as specialised nutrition sessions each week.
