Dallas Bariatric Surgery Practice Partners With Three-Time Super Bowl Champion Nate Newton for Free Post-Weight-Loss Surgery Workouts

Former Dallas Cowboy Star Nate Newton Is Partnering With Dr. David D. Kim and Kim Bariatric Institute to Offer Free Exercise Program, Drop Weight with Nate, for Patients Who Have Had Weight Loss Surgery

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 19, 2015) - Nearly five years ago, former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Nate Newton decided to change his life. The three-time Super Bowl champ weighed 396 pounds, and was worried about the significant risks to his health that were being caused by morbid obesity. Seeking help from the Dallas weight loss surgeons at Kim Bariatric Institute, Nate underwent gastric sleeve surgery and dropped almost 170 pounds in less than a year. Today, Nate is partnering with the practice on a free workout "boot camp" class called Drop Weight with Nate -- a support program that allows Nate to fulfill his continuing ambition to help other Kim Bariatric Institute patients maintain their weight loss and live healthier, more active lives.

Drop Weight with Nate is part of a comprehensive Life after Weight Loss Surgery program at the practice designed to give patients the tools they need to keep losing weight safely and effectively while getting their bodies into a healthier state. Nate's fitness classes include aerobic, strength, circuit, and core exercises. Many of the Drop Weight with Nate boot camp sessions are held at DownSize Fitness in Dallas, a facility known to offer a comfortable environment for weight loss surgery patients. Dr. David D. Kim says Drop Weight with Nate sessions are not only fun -- they are necessary, providing the third weight loss surgery support pillar: exercise.

Since Nate's treatment and subsequent weight loss, he has been helping numerous patients at Kim Bariatric Institute along in their journey to better health. On some occasions, he will greet patients at the hospital on the day of surgery to talk them through the process and encourage them, and he often attends races sponsored by the practice to coach and cheer on participants in the events. Dr. Kim says his collaboration with Nate over the years has been inspiring and helpful to many patients, and Nate continues to be one of Kim Bariatric Institute's brightest success stories.

In addition to weight loss surgery support programs offering discussions, informational seminars, and exercise classes, Kim Bariatric Institute provides access to a 750+member strong online patient support group to help those with questions about nutrition, life after bariatric surgery, and other topics. Dr. Kim says Drop Weight with Nate is yet another way to help weight loss surgery patients successfully fight morbid obesity and navigate the road to better health.
