Body Composition Testing
Many of us rely on the scale to determine how “successful” we are in changing our health, but the scale only tells part of the story. Many women and men can dramatically transform their body composition without seeing the scale move. Others can increase their weight and IMPROVE their body composition. Knowing what you are made of allows you to track real change!
Using research-grade body composition testing, we illustrate how much fat, muscle, water, and bone is in your body. The DSM-BIA technology we utilize has excellent correlation with DEXA (the gold standard of body composition testing). Here is one research study that shows excellent correlation: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21555168
Understanding your body composition is the first step in creating a wellness plan.
Fit-Fax Body Composition Exam/Wellness Consultation (30 minutes)
In a 30-minute initial session, we provide you with the following:
* Inbody 570 body composition exam/explanation of results.
*Macronutrient ratios based on your body type (if applicable) and a general caloric range based on your goals and BMR (if you are overwhelmed by data, we also provide infographics that do not require calorie counting or tracking).
* 2-3 specific nutritional/fitness "habits" to work on based on your overall wellness goals.
Most of our clients see us every 2-4 weeks as we build on prior goals to establish long term sustainable health habits!
