Body composition analysis
Body composition – how much of your body is lean muscle vs. how much is fat – is one of the best indicators of overall health. A body composition analysis is a highly accurate tool that can help you find and maintain the healthiest weight for you.
What it is
Whether you’re new to exercising or have an established fitness routine, undergoing a body composition analysis can help you tailor a diet and exercise program to achieve your personal right size.
We use a variety of tests, including the skin fold caliper method and Fit 3D body scan technology to find out your body’s ratio of muscle and fat.
What to expect
An exercise physiologist will conduct a few tests, give you the results and make recommendations for ideal body composition goals.
