Introduction: in Chile, a high prevalence of women presents morbid obesity, this condition generates serious medical complications and high costs for public health. Objective: to determine the effects of a total treatment program consisting of physical exercise, psychological therapy and nutrition education on the preoperative conditions of obese women candidates for bariatric surgery. Material and methods: nineteen women between the ages of 30 and 55 applicants to bariatric surgery, with morbid obesity (n=6) or obesity and comorbidities (n=13), underwent a program of comprehensive treatment of sixteen weeks duration (3 session/week). Before and 72 hours after the last intervention session was evaluated on fasting (≥12 hours): body weight, body mass index (BMI), percentage of body fat (% BF), contour waist (CW) and basal blood glucose. Cardiorespiratory fitness was also estimated. Results: the average age was 40.32 years, post-sixteen weeks of comprehensive treatment study variables improved significantly (p<0.05) and presented the following decreases; the body weight 6.49% (p=0.000), BMI 6.48% (p=0.000), the CW 6.23% (p=0.000), the % BF 9.09% (p=0.001), glycemia 10.19% (p=0.002). The cardiorespiratory capacity increased 21.61% (p=0.010). Conclusions: the treatment improved the preoperative conditions of the patients and increased his cardio capacity, which allows to conclude that the program is bene-ficial and optimal to reduce the levels of morbidity and mortality in candidates for bariatric surgery.
