    What is Body Composition?

    Body Composition describes what your body is made of. Sure, you may be 80kg but what is that? How much of it is bone? How much of it is muscle, or ‘lean mass’, and how much of it is fat? You won’t know until you get a body composition assessment.

    Why should you undergo Fitness Testing?

    Tracking how much bone, muscle and fat you have is extremely important when deciding on a direction for your fitness, or just for understanding your current state of health. Fitness Testing is the way to do this.

    Your doctor will only measure your BMI, which is just your weight divided by your height squared. This doesn’t tell you what your weight is actually made up of. You might have a high BMI, but a very low body fat percentage. Mistakenly, In this case, your fitness goal might be to burn fat. Alternatively, you might have a low or normal BMI but have hidden ‘visceral fat’ around your organs which might put you at a greater risk of heart disease.

    In addition to body composition, tracking your levels of fitness through fitness & metabolic testing like measuring your Resting Metabolic Rate or your VO2 Max is important because it tells you how many calories your body is burning, so you know how much you should be eating to get the proper nutrition to fuel your workouts or lose weight.

    Benefits of Body Composition Assessment

    A body Composition assessment will tell you how much fat, muscle, and bone you have, but it will also tell you a great deal more than that. It also covers where you tend to store most of your fat, it will tell you how much visceral fat you have, and whether your levels of visceral fat are dangerous to your health.

    It will also look at your muscular balance, and tell you if you are under-developed on one side, which might put you at risk of injury.

    With all this data in hand, we will discuss your goals, helping you to set and achieve goals that are more tailored to you and your unique body.
