What is Body Composition?

Body composition tells us what our total body weight is comprised of by assessing the percentages of fat, bone, muscle and water.

Why should I care about my body composition?

If you are serious in any way about managing your weight and/or overall quality of life, body composition allows us to better understand what we are “made of” and is one of the best indicators of overall health. Without knowing what you are made of, you can only guess at how much muscle and fat you actually have. Guessing leads to frustration!

Why do I need to differentiate between muscle and fat?

A healthy balance between fat and muscle is vital for health and wellness throughout life. Scientific evidence shows that a healthy body composition will increase your lifespan; reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, insulin resistance, etc.; increase energy levels, and improve self-esteem.

What is InBody?

InBody is a non-invasive body composition analysis that provides a detailed breakdown of your weight in terms of muscle, fat, and water on an InBody Result Sheet.

  • Exercised strenuously
  • Used a sauna or steam room
  • Consumed diuretics such as caffeine, alcohol, and medication
  • Have a fever, cold or chill

What factors can affect the accuracy of my test results?

Changes in body composition reflect body status, which may be affected by factors such as disease, nutrition, hydration, and medication. Accessories such as jewelry may interfere with the electrical conductivity. Improper posture will also affect test results.
*It is recommended to maintain the same testing conditions from test to test to produce high data reproducibility and comparability.

Will someone be able to explain my results to me?

Yes! A certified trainer will conduct the test and be available to explain your results. Follow up consultations will also be available to you, free of charge, to discuss programming options based on the InBody results to help ensure you reach your goals.

Who is not recommended to take an InBody test?

People with artificial electrical implants such as a defibrillator or pacemaker should not be tested.

Women who are on their menstrual cycle may not obtain accurate results due to subtle changes in their hydration and body water levels.

Women who are pregnant should discuss with their doctor prior to testing.
