Body Composition & Fitness Assessment

 
 

Body composition testing – using BodPod, the gold standard for testing – and fitness assessment services will help comprehensively measure current health and fitness. 
 

BodPod

The BodPod is the gold standard for body composition testing. It is one of the best ways to accurately measure your lean mass and fat mass, and also provides resting metabolic rate (the number of calories your body needs to support its basic functions) and Total Energy Expenditure (the number of calories you need to make it through your day).
 

Fitness Assessment

Our comprehensive fitness assessment involves a series of measurements that help determine the current health and fitness level of our clients. Once our client’s baseline health and fitness level has been determined, we will recommend the most appropriate exercises for our clients. We use a variety of fitness tests and measurements to determine each individual’s baseline fitness level. The specific test we use in each assessment depends on the health and fitness of each client and the type of workout routines performed.

Please wear workout clothing to your appointment. See the “Preparation & Expectations” section below for more details on the required attire for your BodPod session.
