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.
We can routinely check your Body Composition and analyse the data throughout your Personal Training journey to ensure you're heading in the right direction!
As the obesity epidemic continues to rise, premature mortality has increased as a result of obesity and its associated co-morbidities. With increasing obesity rates, there is also an increase in annual costs of obesity-related absenteeism, collectively amounting to billions of pounds’ worth of lost productivity. These costs will continue to grow as employee physical activity levels decline and convenient and abundant foods are increasingly common, further augmenting an already costly obesity epidemic.
With InBody as a screening tool, employees will get a detailed report on their health, allowing them to develop a better understanding of potential risk factors. With this awareness, employees can then be advised to make changes to improve their health. In turn, this can improve efficiency and the overall work environment and reduce absenteeism due to health-related time off, increasing company productivity and revenue.
We take care of everything. Prior to our visit, we will send a link that enables your employees to book a 15 minute slot.. At their allocated time slot, they would come to where we have set up the inbody scales.
In less than 60 seconds, the InBody Test provides easy-to-understand, accurate and objective measurements to evaluate changes in body composition. The InBody will be used to screen and educate employees about health. The employee will receive a comprehensive assessment of body composition to better evaluate their health status. We will take the rest of the time in their slot to discuss in detail their findings.
We can then create an individualised and effective action plan for each employee. As well as provide a convenient, accessible method to allow employees to track changes throughout their wellness program via our online coaching app.
We would then return in 8-12 weeks to review progress.
