Need Suggestions for Low Impact Activities
I agree water exercises or recumbent bike. Remember, their is a weight capacity for fitness equipment. You should look into a active cyle. The person can sit somewhere they know will maintain their weight and pedal on the active cycle like they would a bike. Ellipticals or treadmills would not be a good place to start. Also, he needs to be certain to drink a lot of water and inorder to get his metabolism going he has to stick to eating his 5 - 6 meals a day. This takes much effort and a lot of preparation if you're going to eat right and stay on schedule. Breakfast, snack (optional), lunch, snack, dinner, snack. No food after 8pm to get started. If he is diabetic as well, he will need to eat something before he goes to sleep if not his blood sugar can get too low and cause some serious problems. He needs to start slow and build his stamina, definitely get with a physician before he starts. Lifting weights and strength training are great for diabetics because muscles absorb the sugars in your body and use as energy.
