In the Gym, we have a body composition (BC) analysis machine, which uses the technology bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA). This is one of many methods to assess BC, and in particular body fat and muscle mass. In BIA, a weak electric current flows through the body and the voltage is measured in order to calculate impedance (resistance) of the body, and has proven reliable when compared to other methods.
The top 5 things a BC analysis will show you is:
The BC analysis is available to everyone, and the regular cost is £8 per assessment. However, new community members get this for free as part of their comprehensive gym consultation, and once you have completed it, when you log into the Mywellness app, you’ll be able to view all of your measurements and results. Every measurement you went through with your Gym Instructor will be there for your own information view as and when you please. Often, the best way to kick start your fitness routine or to keep yourself motivated is to have quantifiable data to which you can work and track your progress – and the body composition assessment is a great way to start.
The BC analysis is excellent for new and old members alike. It will ground you with where you’re currently at, informing you of your raw numbers, whilst giving you clear goals to work towards. After speaking with your Gym Instructor, you can discuss what you can do in order to meet your goals, paving the way for 2020 to be your fittest year yet!
