Here are some questions that you might be asking yourself:

How does the BodPod work?

The BodPod is an Air Displacement Plethysmograph (ADP) that uses whole body densitometry to determine body composition (fat vs. lean). The BodPod measures body mass (weight) using a very precise scale, and volume by sitting inside the Bodpod. Body density can then be calculated: Density = Mass/Volume. Once the overall density of the body is determined, the relative proportions of body fat and lean body mass are calculated.

How accurate is the BodPod?

Research studies at major universities have established the outstanding accuracy, safety and speed of the BodPod. BodPod weighing usually agrees within 1% body fat for adults and children.

How do I lose excess body fat?

The most effective way to shed excess fat is to combine moderate exercise with healthy dietary choices. Research shows this combination to be the most successful approach for long-term results. It is a lifestyle! Please keep in mind, you should consult your physician before starting any nutrition/fitness program.

How can the BodPod be used in my weight loss program?

Consider working with a trained nutrition and/or fitness professional; that's where I come in!!! I will review your BodPod test results and design a customized program to help you achieve your goals. I will require you to retest in the BodPod within a 3-4 month period following your initial BodPod test. This will show us if you are progressing towards your goals!

Let's start your Journey Today!!!
