Bouncing Back: How to Safely Resume Exercise After Illness


Navigating the path to recovery after an illness can be a challenging journey, especially for those accustomed to an active lifestyle. At BJC Health, we understand the complexities and concerns you may face when thinking about resuming exercise after flu, COVID-19, or any prolonged illness. Our upcoming webinar, "Bouncing Back: How to Safely Resume Exercise After Illness," is tailored to address these challenges, offering expert guidance and evidence-based strategies to help you return to your exercise routine safely and effectively.

During our upcoming Lifestyle Event, Exercise Physiologists Robyn Yin and Sarah Comensoli will aim to cover:

  • Gradual Resumption of Exercise: Dive into the critical importance of pacing yourself as you return to exercise. We'll discuss strategies for gradually increasing exercise intensity, helping you avoid potential post-illness complications such as fatigue or injury. Understand how to set realistic goals and timelines for your recovery journey.
  • Immune System and Exercise Intensity: Explore the intricate relationship between exercise intensity and the immune system, especially during the recovery phase. Learn how different levels of physical activity can either support or hinder your immune function, and how to find the right balance for your body during this crucial time.
  • Personalized Exercise Plans: Emphasize the need for exercise routines that are tailored to your individual health status and recovery progress. We'll cover how to adapt exercises to suit your specific needs post-illness, ensuring that your return to fitness is both safe and effective.
  • Recognizing and Responding to Body Signals: Gain insights into the importance of listening to your body's signals during recovery. Learn how to interpret physical responses such as fatigue, discomfort, or breathlessness, and how to adjust your exercise routine accordingly to support your body's healing process.
