Body Composition Analysis
At your appointment you will be weighed on a Class I scales Body Composition Analyser. This gives information on the distribution of fat, muscle and water in the body. The information is provided on a print out allowing you to measure your progress over time. Measuring body weight alone does not allow changes in body mass attributable to muscle gain to be assessed. By assessing body composition you can get a more accurate picture of the body’s response to your new lifestyle allowing you to stay motivated.
