Body Fat Testing
Body fat testing can be a critical component in the beginning of any successful fat-loss program, because many people with damaged metabolisms that are coming back into balance typically gain muscle and lose fat simultaneously, which keeps their overall weight relatively constant for some time. Without measuring body composition, it can appear that no progress is being made if the goal is considered to be weight loss instead of fat loss. With each set of measurements, we can see whether the client is gaining or losing fat or gaining or losing muscle and can instruct the client accordingly. Also, if people lose weight because they are eating fewer calories, they will end up losing muscle and we’ll be able to see that as well. Several sites for body fat accumulation will be measured with calipers and then averaged to give you a total score. This is performed in a private office to maintain confidentiality. This service is added onto other programs.
