Body Composition - BodPod
Duration: 30 minutes
The proportion of total fat mass and lean body mass represents an individual's body composition. Body composition is important for athletic performance, and is also a greater determinant of health outcomes than body weight alone. A person can be of average weight but still have high, even risky levels of body fat.
The BodPod is a highly accurate, non-intrusive, extremely rapid method of measuring body composition. This method provides invaluable information for anyone wishing to monitor changes in their body composition for health and/or fitness related purposes.
Utilising a technique called air displacement plethysmography the client sits comfortably in a chamber for two to three minutes whilst the volume of air displaced by the body is measured and used to calculate body fat percentage.
Given body mass and composition is a product of both energy intake (nutrition) and energy expenditure, you may also be interested in our Resting metabolic rate (RMR) assessment.
