Get accurate data on the fat mass (FM) and free-fat mass (FFM) of your body. Identify risk factors for certain diseases, like Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Determine whether you’re fueling enough for optimal performance. Get motivated to reach your weight goals, and boost your energy levels.

Benefits of Body Composition Testing for Weight Management, Athletes, and Building Muscle Mass

 

Body composition is important information for those trying to lose or gain weight, competitive athletes, or those trying to build muscle. We use Lange calipers to measure body fat and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis to measure total body water, fat free mass and fat mass.

 

For those trying to lose weight the focus is on losing fat while maintaining muscle rather than just the number on the scale. Weight and BMI are deceptive!

 

By using Body Composition Testing, we get accurate information we can work with you to individualize a weight maintenance plan, optimize your sports performance, or build muscle mass. 

 

We will repeat measurements as a way of tracking progress and providing motivation for your weight maintenance (weight loss or weight gain) program. For the athlete, knowing body composition can assist in refining your nutrition to improve performance and provide a competitive edge.
