New FitFirst Program Aims at Improving Surgical Outcomes

As mounting evidence shows a clear connection between fitness and surgical outcomes, the Fauquier Health LIFE Center announces a new fitness and nutrition program tailored for patients facing elective surgery.

FitFirst is designed as a 12-week program, but patients without that much time before surgery still can benefit. The program begins with an assessment by an exercise physiologist and a consultation with a physical therapist to FitFirst: Fauquier Health’s New Preoperative Fitness Program ensures a program tailored for each individual’s needs and abilities. If appropriate, physical therapy may be recommended for some patients instead.

FitFirst is free for LIFE Center members. Non-members pay $15 a week, which covers three visits to the gym or to the warm-water therapy pool. There are no contracts to sign.
