Level-up your life with body composition testing!

Body composition testing is a non-invasive, easy method of monitoring the factors that contribute to body fat percentage, skeletal muscle mass, and visceral fat. Despite not being able to diagnose diseases or conditions, body composition testing can certainly help you monitor your risk of fatty liver and other metabolic conditions. 

Essentially, understanding your body composition can help you achieve more out of your fitness and health regiment. Whether you’re looking to optimize your fitness routine or understand how your diet and exercise is affecting your body, a Body Composition analysis can be incredibly useful!

For a long time now, we’ve known that BMI is not the best indicator of a person’s health. It can be an over simplistic way to view a person’s body as it only compares weight to height. People can get discouraged if they do not see a decrease in their weight on the scale after starting an exercise program, even if they have improved their body composition.

A person’s body composition includes fat, muscle, minerals, and water. Due to the precise measurement of fat mass and fat-free mass, it describes weight more accurately than BMI. 

What is Body Composition Testing?

The InBody 270 measures and records a user’s weight, skeletal muscle mass, and percent body fat from the last eight tests to track progress over time. Simply stand on the device and hold the hand electrodes to test. Results are fast; within 15 seconds you’ll have a full-page results sheet detailing the muscle, fat, and water values of your body, including lean mass and fat values in each segment of the body.

It is recommended to test every 2-4 weeks to monitor and track the progress. 

Segmental lean mass analysis identifies how many pounds of lean mass and fat are in each body segment. This can be utilized to determine how specific diets and exercises are affecting body composition. With these values, a user can monitor how the body is adjusting to dietary changes, fitness routines, and lifestyle modifications. 

How does a Body Composition Analysis help my health and wellness?

With regular monitoring and with the guidance of a health professional you can..

  • Track the progress of your specific diet
