BODY COMPOSITION TESTING
WHAT IS BODY COMPOSITION ANALYSIS?
“Body Composition” is used to describe the different components that when taken together, make up a person's body weight. The human body is composed of a variety of different tissue types including lean tissues (muscle, bone, and organs) that are metabolically active and fat (adipose) tissue that is not.
Body Weight Measurements
Standard body weight scales provide a measure of total weight, but don't determine the lean-to-fat ratio of that weight. Standing on most scales can tell you only if you weigh more than the average person, but not if that weight is fat or muscle. By using a Bodystat BIA (Bio-electrical Impedance Analyser) we can measure the impedance value of the whole body. This is done by passing a safe battery generated signal through the body measuring the impedance at a frequency of 50 kHz. Once the test is performed a complete Body Composition analysis is given.
The Bodystat is non-invasive, and is highly recognized as one of the most established Bio-electrical Impedance Body Composition Analysers in the market.
The Bodystat measures the whole body compared to traditional measurements where only the upper or lower body is calculated.
The Bodystat measures/calculates...
· BODY FAT % & FAT WEIGHT
· LEAN MASS % & BODY LEAN MASS
· TOTAL WEIGHT
· BODY WATER % & BODY WATER
· BASAL METABOLIC RATE
· BMR BODY WEIGHT
· AVERAGE DAILY CALORIE REQUIREMENT
· BODY MASS INDEX
· IMPEDANCE VALUES AT 50kHz
The total time required to complete a Bio-electrical Impedance Body Composition test is approximately 15 minutes.
I am able to offer Body Composition tests at all exercise classes. However please book test's in advance prior to class.
