Monitoring your weight is not enough
Weight can be misleading when used as an indicator of health. Many people experience frustration when their weight shows no change, even with exercise and improved nutrition. Our body is a complex structure made of different components; such as body water, fat and muscle. Your body composition can not be expressed with one simple number.
InBody test will show a true assessment of your body
To throughly learn about your body and its composition, take the InBody test. In less than 45 seconds, the InBody not only examines the compositions of your body, but also reveals the percentage of body fat and muscle distribution; components that are key in understanding more about your body.
Track your progress with the InBody test
Taking the InBody test once will give you a snapshot of your body at that moment in time. However, taking the InBody test, repeatedly, over time will give you a timeline of your progress. Watch the improvements from exercise and diet and do not let your hard work go to waste. In order to make sure the test results and both valid and reliable, you want to keep the testing conditions consistent. For example, testing at the same time of day and month each time.
Body Composition - Body composition testing is the process of measuring the components, in short what you are made of. Weight alone is not a clear indication of good health because it does not distinguish how many pounds are fat and how many pounds are lean body mass. By regularly monitoring your body fat and muscle mass or muscular development, you can understand how your diet, lifestyle and exercise regime are influencing your body composition. Knowing what’s working for you can help you target and reach your wellness, appearance and longevity goals.
Body Composition Analysis - What we’re made of impacts our health, appearance and our capabilities. Too much body fat increases our risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Carrying too much weight places undo strain on our joints, heart and vital organs.
Obesity Analysis - BMI (Body Mass Index) isn’t a measurement but a calculation based on your height and weight. A BMI over the normal range can indicate a weight problem, or a degree of obesity. Individuals with large amounts of muscle mass for their height may also have a BMI over the normal range; this is not indicative or obesity or a health risk. Percentage Body Fat (PBF) is a measured component of your actual body composition, PBF is the percentage of your total body weight that isn’t muscle, bone or excess fluid. PBF is a more accurate means of assessing degrees of obesity or degrees of fitness.
Prior to testing
*Individuals with medical implant devices such as pacemakers, or essential support devices such as patient monitoring systems, must not take the test.
