InBody Body Composition Testing
(included without additional charge in our programs)
Health is so much more than a number on a scale. In fact, a recent study concluded that cardiovascular disease risk was decreased by high muscle mass in both men and women. During weight loss, some degree of muscle mass loss is unavoidable. Given the benefits of retaining muscle mass as we age, it is important to follow body composition (muscle mass and percent body fat) during weight loss efforts.
The InBody scanner uses bioimpedance measurement of all four extremities and the trunk to determine fat mass and muscle mass. You will receive a detailed print out of your results, along with your progress over time.
Fitness Assessment with Personalized Strength and Cardio Plan
We lose 3% of our muscle mass per year starting at the age of 30 unless we do something about it. Loss of muscle mass contributes to the weight gain that tends to to occur with aging and has recently been shown to be correlated to increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
This service will begin with a fitness assessment to determine your cardiovascular fitness and to evaluate for muscle imbalances that may hinder progress and predispose you to injury. You will then receive a plan that includes appropriate stretching, warm up, and cardiovascular and strength training based on your assessment, goals, available equipment, age and gender. Instruction on appropriate technique will be provided.
