Biometric Assessments give you a better picture of your overall health. Data gathered during an assessment goes beyond the number on the scale. The biometrics collected during an assessment include:

  • Skeletal Muscle Mass
  • Percent Body Fat
  • Base Metabolic Rate
  • Waist, Hips, Arm, and Thigh Measurements
  • Waist-To-Hip Ratio
  • Blood Pressure

The data gathered offers better measures of achieving wellness and avenues to monitor your fitness progress than using scale weight alone. Using the data, we will review your current health picture so you know what the numbers mean and use the data to set realistic and attainable goals.

What’s involved in a biometric assessment

A Biometric Assessment includes an InBody Analysis, body measurements, and a blood pressure reading. Using these tools, we can gather an overall picture of your body composition to help target your wellness goals most effectively.

InBody Analysis

InBody Analysis uses Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to measure the body’s composition. BIA measures impedance in the body by applying alternating low-level electrical currents through the water in the body. In BIA, the more water in your body, the less resistance. Unlike fat, the muscles in your body contain a high percentage of water.  So, the more muscle you have, the more body water. And the more body water you have, the less resistance to the electrical current. Based on the InBody results, we can learn the following indicators of body composition:

  • Skeletal Muscle Mass
  • Body Fat Mass
  • Percent Body Fat
  • Basal Metabolic Rate

Setting goals to change the skeletal muscle mass and percent body fat are more attainable than a number on the scale and improve your overall health. The basal metabolic rate helps establish healthy eating pattern goals by giving you a target for the right amount of calories required by your body every day to function.

Body Measurements

Body measurements give us another picture of your body composition. Using a standard cloth tape measure, we take measurements of the waist, hips, arm, and thigh. Changes in these numbers are a strong indicator of changing health beyond simply scale weight. Waist measurement is an indicator of the amount of visceral fat, the most unhealthy type of fat in the body. The waist to hip ratio is used to identify overweight and obesity, more realistically than the BMI. Arm and thigh measurements are indicators of the change in skeletal muscle mass.

Blood Pressure Monitoring

Hypertension and high blood pressure is on the rise. Regularly monitoring your blood pressure, especially if you are borderline hypertensive, is important and also allows you to see improvements from your lifestyle behavior changes.
