Lookout’s Own Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Holly Aldoph, talks through the advanced body composition analysis from InBody. 

The need to go beyond the typical scale

Relying on traditional weight scales to provide insights into your overall health can be incredibly limiting. It’s time to step into the future of body composition analysis with the revolutionary InBody Scan.

Unlike any other body measurement tool, the InBody Scan takes the guesswork out of tracking your progress and offers a comprehensive analysis of your body composition. Whether you’re a company’s senior executive looking to optimize performance or someone on a journey towards a healthier lifestyle, the InBody Scan provides invaluable information that empowers you to make informed decisions about your health and fitness goals. 

Let’s explore the benefits and uniqueness of using an InBody Scan, to unlock a whole new level of understanding and transform the way you approach your well-being. 

 

What is InBody?
A typical scale does not measure how much muscle or fat you have. InBody is a non-invasive test that measures your body composition of muscle, water, and fat. The key to effective weight loss is to increase muscle mass and lose  excess body fat through healthy eating, increased strength training, and regular aerobic exercise.

Who should take this test?
InBody can help everyone understand their body composition and reach their health goals, regardless of age, sex, or health status. This test is especially important for those who are at the highest risk of health issues due to high body fat or low muscle mass, including sedentary adults, sarcopenic obese (people with overdeveloped fat or underdeveloped muscle mass), and people over the age of 65. 

What information will the test provide?
Our InBody 570 body composition analyzer calculates multiple body measurements:.

  1. Body composition analysis and body water results include your body water content, dry lean mass (the weight of the proteins and minerals in your body), lean body mass (the sum of your water content and dry lean mass, also known as fat-free mass), total body fat mass, and weight. These results can help track your changes in fat and muscle content, and can tell you if you are drinking enough water.

  2. Muscle, fat, and obesity risk results show how your weight, skeletal muscle mass, and body fat mass compare to the healthy average range of people of the same height and sex.

  3. Segmental lean analysis results can help assess whether your lean body mass is sufficiently developed in your arms, legs, and torso, to  identify if you have any muscle imbalances. These results can also determine how sufficient your muscles are at supporting your body weight.

  4. Customizable InBody results can be optimized to help you achieve your personal goals, and to calculate your basal metabolic rate (the calories needed for basic essential functions).

What can I do with this information?
Understanding the amounts of fat, muscle, and water in your body is an important step in optimizing your health and fitness goals. InBody can help you identify specific areas of your body for improvement, and can help you achieve your ideal body composition.

How is the test administered?
The non-invasive test takes less than a minute, in a few easy steps:  1. Wipe down your hands and feet. 2. Step onto the InBody machine.  3. Enter your ID, height, and age into the digital screen.  4. Grab the handles.  5. Wait 45 seconds.  6. Receive your results!

How frequently should the test be taken?
To most accurately track the progress of your body fat weight loss progress, the InBody test is recommended every 4 to 12 weeks.
