Body Composition Test

Includes the following (allow 60 minutes):

Standard Test: Accurate $25

Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a commonly used method for estimating body composition, in particular body fat and muscle mass. In BIA, a weak electric current flows through the body and the voltage is measured in order to calculate impedance (resistance) of the body.

Better Test: More Accuracy $40

Skin fold Caliper: Calculations have been created to estimate body fat percentage based on skin fold measurements to the same accuracy as hydrostatic weighing. The calculations and calipers themselves are very accurate. While there is large room for user error in skin fold measurements, skilled trainers who practice often can obtain up to 98% accuracy. However, it has been found that skin fold measurements may be less accurate for larger individuals, where it is more difficult to separate muscle and fat by a simple pinch.

Better Test: More Accuracy $60

The InBody 270 body composition analyzer goes beyond traditional body composition analysis, measuring fat, muscle, and total body water. Total body water data can be divided into intracellular water and extracellular water, values important for understanding a user’s fluid distribution in medical, wellness and fitness contexts.
