The Importance of Getting a Body Composition Test

The Importance of Getting a Body Composition Test

If you want to learn what you need to do to shed those extra pounds, build lean muscle, or even what nutrients your body may need more of, you’ll want to take a body composition test.

What is a Body Composition Test?

A body composition analysis is essential to completely understanding your health. It breaks down your body into four components: fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water; and can provide insights into how to change your lifestyle, exercise plan, or healthcare practices.

With a body composition test, we can provide an individualized health plan that best fits your goals and personal needs. Not only will it help you become healthier, but it can reduce the risk of deadly diseases and health issues.

Health Benefits Associated with Measuring Body Composition

We all want the ability to burn more calories and build muscle to significantly reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and other health issues. When you have a plan, you can increase your range of motion, movement, and function, and have more energy.

Improve Your Overall Body Composition

With the results of the body scan, you can make simple changes in your daily lifestyle. Suggestions that might be made to you are: Increasing your physical activity by participating in resistance exercises that will help you improve your muscle to fat ratio, incorporating cardiovascular exercises combined with healthy eating, and we may suggest supplements to ensure you’re receiving all the nutrients your body needs to improve your overall body composition.

What to Expect from a Body Composition Scan?

Our evaluation only takes a few minutes. We’ll create a plan with you to make sure you meet your health goals.

Learning more about your body will help you make educated decisions when it comes to your physical fitness and nutritional health.

What is BMI and to Use it

What is BMI and to Use it

While it doesn’t calculate fat percentage, the Body Mass Index is an indicator if you are overweight and could be subject to health issues. Unless you are a muscular athlete or a child, the BMI is a standard tool for accessing health risks. Body mass index is a way of describing height and weight in one number that can help tell if someone’s weight is healthy or not.

Why it Matters

The higher your BMI, the higher the risk of developing a range of conditions linked with excess weight, including:

  • diabetes
  • arthritis

  • liver disease

  • several types of cancer (such as those of the breast, colon, and prostate)

  • high blood pressure (hypertension)

  • high cholesterol

  • sleep apnea

  • heart disease

  • stroke

  • high blood pressure

  • gallbladder disease

  • premature death

  • osteoarthritis and joint disease

Why it May Not Matter

It’s important to recognize that BMI itself does not measure your health or physiological state that indicates the presence (or absence) of disease. It simply measures your size. Plenty of people have a high or low BMI and are healthy and plenty of people with a normal BMI are unhealthy.
