Body Composition Assessment
Are you concerned about weight? Your health is dependent on more then just weight. Knowing if you need to lose fat and where you may need to build muscle can help with tailoring a food and exercise plan to meet your specific goals
Using the Inbody 230 we are able to provide a quick and reliable way to measure body composition. This testing involves standing bare foot on the scale. After the analysis is complete, the individual receives a personal results sheet, indicating body composition measurements, and an explanation of results.
Data provided allows for the tracking of individual progress and health risk.
This 30-second test measures and reports:
- The amounts and percentages of fat and muscle throughout the body
- How individual body composition compares to healthy expected ranges
- How many calories are burned per day
Insurance coverage for nutrition counseling also provides coverage for this test, which may mean NO COST TO YOU.
