BMI

Work Smarter Not Harder

Think your diet and training regimen is really working? In the long run, weight means nothing unless you can accurately assess whether the weight you’re trying to lose or gain actually consists of fat or muscle. A DEXA scan provides the most accurate body composition measurements.

Understanding your body composition can help you reach your goal faster. The results are immediate and come with a personal and detailed report so you know exactly how to tailor your fitness program. With a DEXA BMI scan, you can:

  • Accurately track your progress over your training period
  • Make needed adjustments
  • Reach your goal faster
  • Reduce your health/life insurance costs


Lose the Fat, Not the Muscle

If you’re trying to lose or gain weight, you need an intelligent body composition assessment method. The DEXA (duel-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan provides one of the most accurate measurements of body composition available and is the “gold standard”* for determining your body mass index (BMI). DEXA was originally developed to measure bone mineral density but is now capable of calculating overall fat mass, lean mass, and bone mass.

The scan itself is no more invasive than an X-ray and imparts about as much radiation per scan as an airport security scanner or a day in the sun. The scan involves little more than lying face-up on a table while dressed in snug fitting clothing. The results are immediate and come with personal detailed results so you know exactly how to tailor your fitness program to work smarter not harder.

By completing a series of DEXA BMI scans over a period of time, you can actually see your progress. Your report will consist of a full-color fat loss trend as well as muscle build-up trend analysis.

Over the long haul weight means nothing unless you can accurately assess whether the weight you’re trying to lose or gain actually consists of fat or muscle. In addition, a DEXA BMI scan can help reduce your health insurance costs* by providing you with an accurate assessment of your health risk.

Personal Trainers:

If you wish to have a BMI scan yourself to see if it will be beneficial for your clients, inquire for a discounted rate. You must provide us your business card and photo ID at the time of service. We can also offer your clients a special discount for a series of scans to measure their success.

Gyms:

Do you have an upcoming 10- or 12-week challenge? We can offer special discounts for participants if there are 10 or more - just $100 for 2 scans (normally $178). Having a scan before and after the challenge will accurately assess the progress and make the experience more rewarding for your clients.

Note: These arrangements must be organized by gym staff, and specific requirements may apply in order for your clients to qualify.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss this further.
