Read about our Bariatric Boot Camp program, which was featured in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette!

Reliant Medical Group’s bariatric program offers various exercise options to our patients. One of these options is the Bariatric Boot Camp. This class is run by a Physical Therapist Assistant who is a personal trainer and a certified strength and conditioning coach. Other trained staff also help assist in the running of the program. The Bariatric Boot Camp class only consists of patients in the bariatric program.

What we offer

  • A circuit-type exercise course
  • Exercise equipment such as:
    • Weight-lifting machines
