Exercise is an extremely important part of any successful weight loss program. A lot of patients feel they are "too heavy" to exercise but most don't realize that there are many different options for exercise. Not all activities put pressure on the joints and there are many programs that can be tailored to your weight and your individual goals.
Some patients feel embarrassed to go to a gym and work out next to "thinner" people. Again there are a large variety of gyms, some of which do not cater to the ultra thin.
Keep in mind, that as you start to lose weight and feel better you will notice your energy levels increasing.
Take advantage of this feeling and channel it into exercise. Any amount is better than none. There is no question that incorporating exercise will dramatically increase your results, and help you to feel better!
Exercise releases natural "endorphins" which make you feel good and may even prevent you from the desire to overeat. If you make exercise a regular part of your day, you will see how you can begin to manage stress better, sleep better and feel better about yourself while improving your overall health.
Consult with your physician and surgeon before starting any exercise program or to discuss the options at our affiliate North Jersey Health and Wellness Center.

Gait analysis, or the study of human locomotion, is used to assess, plan, and treat individuals with conditions affecting their ability to walk. While you are walking we are using the Optogate innovative technology to identify imbalances and develop solutions to prevent further complications. Chronic injuries can also be addressed by identifying the root cause of any malingering problems. By analyzing your walking cycle in real time, we can correct and find the most efficient gait rhythm and safely progress you to an enhanced pace.
The world's first and only treadmill using NASA based anti-gravity technology to recover, maintain, and enhance physical function for better mobility, health, and performance. With the AlterG, clients can run and walk without bearing their entire weight, reducing the impact on the body to optimize rehabilitation and performance outcomes. Its Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology applies a lifting force to the body that reduces weight on the lower extremities and allows precise unweighting - up to 80% of a person's body weight, so people can find exactly where the pain stops and natural movement feels good again. With AlterG you get all the gain, without the pain.
Balance training should be considered the corner stone of quality movement. Efficient movement requires strong proprioception ( the ability for the body to know where its limbs are in space) and a stable core, both of which are improved through balance training. Moreover, balance training improves overall fitness and quality of life, and decreases the risk of injury. Improved balance and coordination can also benefit neuromuscular coordination, joint stability, reaction time, and strength.
All our training sessions contain no more than 6 participants. We believe small group training has several benefits when compared to larger "classes." Each participant receives personal attention which allows for improved technique, greater focus and therefore enhanced outcomes. Each session is tailored for that specific group and can include balance and coordination, band-resistance exercises, injury prevention, strength training, TR-EX and/or deep stretching. These sessions can be combined with our brain training as well.
