What is Body Composition Analysis?
We use state of the art, medical grade scales called Inbody for our body composition testing. The procedure is completely painless, non-invasive and takes less than a minute. All it involves is you stepping on our scales and in no time at all, we will have a print-out of your body analysis. The print out provides us with so much information, including weight, body water, lean body mass, body fat mass, skeletal muscle mass, percentage body fat %, segmental lean analysis and much more.
Why have a Body Composition Analysis?
A body composition analysis is an excellent starting point for anyone wanting to embark on a health and fitness journey, or just wanting a better understanding of their body.
By knowing exactly where you are at, it allows us to set some numerical goals and provide you with a plan of how to get to those goals.
The inbody scales also provide us with your visceral fat level. This is the fat that wraps around your abdominal organs. Visceral fat is the dangerous fat, too high visceral fat levels will raise your risk for serious medical issues such as, Heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Type 2 Diabetes, Stroke and High Cholesterol. You can look healthy from the outside, but still have high visceral fat levels, so it’s great to know your visceral fat level and see if you need to make any changes.
Also, the inbody scales aren’t just for weight loss/weight gain management. They also provide us with a segmental lean analysis. With this information, we can detect any muscular imbalances and provide you with a plan to correct these.
By having a good understanding of what is going on inside, it allows us to provide you with all the information to achieve your goals and become the healthiest version of yourself.
