Want to see what you’re really made of? Fitness is about way more than a number on a scale, and BMI measurements don’t take muscle into account. So, what’s really the best way to measure results? We’d like to introduce you to the InBody.
About the InBody
In just 45 seconds, this machine monitors your weight, muscle, fat and water. It then breaks that data down for you in a printout and can even chart your progress over time. Sometimes, your actual weight won’t change even when you’re showing progress because you’re increasing muscle and decreasing fat at the same time. With the InBody, you’ll finally be able to see that progress.
Not only will you see how much you weigh; you’ll understand how much of that weight is muscle, fat or water. Keeping an eye on your Body Fat Percentage is a great, healthy way to track your progress on your health and fitness journey. The InBody also breaks down your muscle percentage into different segments of your body, which will show you what areas you want to work on, or if one of your arms or legs is stronger than the other.
How accurate is is it?
Your body is always changing, and some factors can affect your scan. We recommend waiting three hours after a big meal or hard workout before doing a scan.
How does it work?
The InBody uses bioelectrical impedance analysis. To precisely measure body composition, it sends
multiple electrical currents through the body, resulting in up to six different impedance readings for the
trunk and each of the four limbs. The currents are very mild – you won’t feel a thing.
What do I do?
Doing a scan is super easy. You’ll remove your shoes, socks, and empty your pockets. Then, you’ll stand on the scanner platform and hold the handles. The machine will guide you through what to do. You’ll enter your phone number so you can track your progress over time, and take a printout home with you showing your results.
Make the connection between Weight, Skeletal Muscle Mass, and Body Fat Mass and start developing a personalized plan for each individual.
Segmental Lean Analysis
Get an in-depth analysis of an individual’s fat-free mass. Evaluate if an individual has a sufficient level of fat-free mass in each segment of the body (arms, legs, and trunk) and spot any imbalances between the limbs.
Basal Metabolic Rate
Understand how many calories an individual naturally burns at rest to develop a unique nutrition plan based on their activity level and personal health goals.
Body Composition History
Track changes in Weight, Skeletal Muscle Mass, and Percent Body Fat over time. Spot trends and make timely adjustments to keep your clients headed in the right direction.
