Nutrition Counseling

A LA CARTE SERVICES

Body Composition Testing | $45

In measuring your progress through a training or health program, much emphasis is unduly placed on tracking either your weight or BMI. Unfortunately, there is too much emphasis on these variables as a measure of health. This is not an appropriate way to quantify your progress with your health program because when we examine weight loss there can be other reasons for the loss of weight; reasons that are not healthy, such as muscle, bone, or water loss.

A better objective measure to track your progress with your health program is measuring your body composition. A body composition test measures your fat mass to lean muscle tissue ratio. Higher body fat percentage and the distribution of body fat within the body have been linked to increased incidence of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Measuring body composition can also monitor your current physique, track your training progression, and help determine a safe and achievable weight for you during your health or fitness program. At BE, we utilize skinfold caliper testing to quantify your body composition. Every type of body composition analysis has its advantages and disadvantages, but skinfold measurements allow for athletes to more readily track how they are progressing without having to follow strict protocols, such is the case with the Bodpod. The Bodpod measures air displacement, and it can be overly cumbersome requiring no food, drink, or exercise for 3 hours prior to the test, and it can be impacted by air temperature, humidity level, lotions, and type of clothing.

The skinfold caliper assessment also has opportunities for error compared to other types of body composition analysis. However, no test or measurement is going to be 100% accurate. ISAK (International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry) is an organization that has developed international standards for skinfold measurements to ensure the most accuracy and reliability. Our registered dietitian has been trained and is certified by ISAK to perform skinfold caliper measurements.

Skinfold caliper testing can be scheduled as a stand alone service or be added onto your session for an extra cost of $45. This will require an additional 20-30 minutes to your appointment.
