Body composition testing is one type of feedback we use here at the Sports Science Association.

Weight alone is not an accurate measurement of fitness and health. To get an accurate look at overall fitness, body composition and body fat percentage should be defined.

A pound of body fat and a pound of muscle weigh the same obviously, but what isn’t obvious is that the same pound of muscle takes up half the space. So for example your waist size could actually go down in inches but your weight could stay the same. Or your weight could go down, but you could be losing muscle and not body fat, therefore lowering your metabolism and making it even harder to lose body fat. This information allows us to integrate your nutritional needs and training with what is actually happening with your body and make adjustments so that you keep moving toward you fitness goal.
