Body Composition Analysis

The InBody goes beyond your scale weight!

Scale

Your total body weight is only ONE tool for assessing your health. Although commonly used, Body Mass Index (BMI) is an unreliable representation of your weight because it calculates your obesity level strictly based on your height and weight. This results in more people being labeled as obese. It can also be frustrating to NOT see your diet and fitness changes being reflected on the scale. This is where the Inbody test comes in…

The Inbody scale calculates your 

  • skeletal muscle mass
  • lean body mass
  • % body fat
  • total body water
  • basal metabolic rate (calories needed at rest)

It measures the body segmentally to evaluate the amount of muscle you have. Knowing your body composition is very important during your journey of weight loss and can also help determine if you are maintaining your muscle mass during times of poor health or as you age.


My son was so excited to see improvements in his muscle mass. He felt liked all of his hard work in the gym had paid off! — Katrin B., Boulder

How does it work?

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)

Safe, low-level currents are sent through the body through the hand and foot electrodes. The impedance the currents encounter are measured, and from there, your body composition is derived. The test takes approximately 30 seconds. The Inbody BIA has been shown to be 98% accurate compared to the gold standard DEXA (Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry) testing.

Inbody testing is included in all Initial Assessments for those who wish to take advantage. Repeat testing is recommended every 4-8 weeks to measure changes until your goals are met.

The dietitian at Nutrition Dynamix helped me find out the best weight for me after assessing my body fat and muscle. I was surprised it was higher than I thought! Just because I was a certain height, didn't mean I had to weigh the same as everyone else! — Kim B., Longmont
