Many people set fitness and health goals based on weight loss. And we understand the motivation behind seeing the number on your scale decrease over time. But tracking only your body weight will not give you all the information you need to improve your fitness and health.
Rather than focusing on weight loss, we offer a body composition test to get an accurate measurement of your lean mass (muscle), fat, and water.
Some of you might have some experience with body composition assessments that involve skin pinching with calipers or dunking in water tanks. But there is another body composition measurement method, the InBody Scan, where no pinching or dunking is needed.
Get to know more about the InBody Scan:
The InBody Scan provides a detailed analysis of how much muscle and fat you currently have. The InBody Test is:
“a non-invasive body composition analysis that provides a detailed breakdown of your weight in terms of muscle, fat, and water … an InBody Test can take anywhere from 15-120 seconds.” (source)
Here a few ways a body composition test, like an InBody Test, can help you get results.
- Assessing your body composition using the InBody Scan paints a better picture of your health compared to only knowing and tracking your weight.
- Knowing the percentage of body fat you currently have helps you set future goals and focus on fat loss (instead of weight loss).
- An InBody Test shows you the distribution of your lean body mass. You can compare your muscle mass in your upper and lower body and track your strength gain and workout effectiveness over time.
- Measuring your body composition periodically can help you gauge progress toward your fitness and health goals.
At Cannon Fitness and Performance, we offer an InBody Scan as part of our nutrition coaching service. You’ll get a detailed baseline measurement of how much muscle and fat you currently have. Then you’ll receive a two-week meal plan and grocery list. After the initial two weeks, we’ll meet again to check-in and make any necessary adjustments.
