Body composition testing determines how much of your body is and isn’t fat. The non-fat part of your body is called lean tissue, and it includes muscle, water, bone, and organs. Learn more about Cal Fit's options for body composition analysis below.
Body fat composition testing pinpoints how much of your weight is made up of fat and lean tissue. Body composition analysis is essential to completely understand health and weight because traditional methods of assessing health--such as body mass indexing (BMI)--can be misleading. Going beyond your weight, body composition analysis breaks down your body into four components: fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water.
Lean tissue is known as “metabolically active tissue,” meaning it burns calories all day long. Increasing lean muscle mass over time doesn't just result in weight loss, it helps prevent you from gaining weight back as it increases your metabolism.
A higher body fat percentage is linked to health issues like diabetes and heart disease. Focusing on reducing body fat and increasing lean tissue rather than weight loss alone will ensure you experience optimum health benefits from your lifestyle changes and hard work.
There are a lot of different analysis tools out there for gaining insight into your body composition. Hydrostatic testing has a high level of accuracy, but can be time-consuming and inconvenient, as it requires you to submerge your body in water. In an effort to give our members a faster, more convenient way to track their body fat percentage, Cal Fit now offers InBody testing.
InBody body composition analyzers break down your weight and display your body composition data on an organized, easy-to-understand Result Sheet. The results help you understand where your fat, muscle, and body levels are at and act as a guide to help you achieve your goals: whether that is shedding a few unwanted pounds or a complete body transformation.
How does it work? An InBody Test just takes 15-20 seconds. It's very much like standing on top of a traditional scale. No more pinching. No more dunking. Get results you can trust so you can reach your health and fitness goals with precision and actionable objectives. You can even follow the guidelines in this handy video to help you get the most accurate results each time you test.
