    Just stumbled upon this website while doing my own research. I am a 54 y/o male with 4 lower back surgeries. I am also a group and personal trainer. Having read several articles regarding exercise programs for those who are obese, I found that few had anything to say about getting started! I am no doctor but I know enough to say that exercise programs for the obese, or anyone else for that matter, MUST be started gradually. An obese person has the disadvantage of carrying around their own set of weights, so having them do all sorts of sets of exercise in the beginning may cause more harm than good! Aquatics/water aerobics is probably the best way to start since it helps hold us up. You don't have to be able to swim either! Start any exercise program slowly. If you are not accustomed to exercise, or out of shape, 10-15 minutes just to get a feel for your body. Walking is great, but again, everything in moderation. Just over a year ago I couldn't walk to my mailbox, which is about 200 feet from my house. Slow, steady progression and I can walk over 5 miles. I am not obese but the principles of training are the same. Slow and easy. Set a goal for yourself. Then go get it!

  • Some experts recommend that obese people simply begin exercising by sitting in a chair and doing arm and leg lifts. Depending on one's weight, joining a gym in order to use fitness equipment may be a good idea. Some people find that if they are very obese it is difficult to use fitness machines because it may be difficult to fit on them, or to use them safely and properly. Recumbent bicycles are often a good choice for exercises for obese people, because they offer aerobic benefits without stressing the joints.
