Take Your Weight Loss and Fitness to the Next Level
At both our Alameda and Oakland chiropractic and health care locations, we offer body composition analysis by using the InBody by Biospace. InBody sends multiple frequencies through your extremities and trunk. The speed at which the frequencies are received back to the machine determines your body composition. Take your Weight loss and Fitness to the next level with Symmetry Health Center.
The machine will give individuals a personalized result sheet with measurements such as weight and lean body mass versus body fat mass. Want to know how much of your lean mass is made up of water? InBody will calculate your intra and extra cellular water as well as an expected healthy ratio of Total Body Water.
What is PBF InBody composition?
The obesity analysis calculates Percentage of Body Fat or PBF, which is a measurement of your actual body composition unlike BMI, which is a calculation based only on your height and weight. PBF will be able to tell the percentage of your total weight that isn’t muscle, bone or fluid, giving a more accurate means of assessing degrees of obesity or degrees of fitness. The InBody will calculate and recommend a specific measurement in pounds to decrease in body fat and increase in muscle mass that you could benefit from, based on your current body composition.
Want to know which muscles need more work? The Segmental Lean Analysis will measure how your muscle mass is distributed throughout your body. This will help to determine if you have a disproportionate amount of muscle in your legs or trunk and arms and then distinguish which have more muscle mass from your right to left.
Individual measurements will be saved and tracked over time to give you an objective outcome of your health status. Our nutrition coaches, fitness trainers and doctors will be able to help you determine your immediate and long term goals for healthy living.
So if you want to know just how much you are benefitting from your healthy eating plan or strength training in Power Plate classes 3 times a week, then you are going to want to have a reading with the InBody!
Tips for check your health
This is a great way to assess your overall health, as weight alone is not a clear indication of good health. This is due to the fact that it does not distinguish between how many pounds are lean mass and how many pounds are fat mass. When body fat percentage is within normal ranges (10-20% for men and 18-28% for women), your risk for chronic disease development is significantly reduced.
The results print out will help you find motivation to achieve your goals by reporting pounds of lean muscle mass, fat mass, percent body fat, body mass index (BMI), hydration status, and basal metabolic rate (BMR). Knowing this information, you can begin to understand how your diet, lifestyle, and exercise regimen are affecting your body composition. This enables you to target and reach your health and fitness goals!
For the most accurate results, please note the following:
- Test before exercising or eating (2 hours prior)
- Remove shoes, socks, and items from pockets
- Use the restroom prior to testing
- Test under similar conditions to enhance reproducibility of results when comparing tests
