Analyzing Body Composition at Our Dickinson Office
The human body is made up of water, protein, fat, and minerals. Body composition is the proportion of fat and fat-free mass in your body. A healthy body composition is one that includes a lower percentage of body fat and a higher percentage of fat-free mass such as muscle.
At Key T Wellness in Dickinson, we measure body composition in order to accurately assess your health and fitness level. This allows us to determine the best diet and exercise regimen for you in order to reach your fitness goals. We often measure body composition at the start of a weight loss or fitness program and check periodically to monitor your progress.
Measuring Body Composition with the InBody 570
Using a regular weight scale to weigh yourself does not accurately assess your body composition because it cannot tell you how much of your total body weight is water, fat, or muscle.
In order to determine if your body composition is healthy, our Dickinson office uses the InBody 570, which measures your body’s fat, muscle, and water percentages. Using these measurements, the total body water is divided into intracellular and extracellular water, thus indicating a person’s fluid distribution. This information provides an accurate and in-depth body composition analysis for medical or fitness purposes.
How the InBody 570 Process Works
The InBody 570’s state-of-the-art technology measures your body’s fat, muscle, and water in about 45 seconds. Upon obtaining this information, our health professional will then thoroughly go over your results with you and answer any questions you may have.
Because the InBody 570 also gives a segment-by-segment look into how much lean mass you have in various body parts, we are able to determine what would be the most effective diet and exercise plan for you.
Utilizing the InBody 570 Body Composition History chart, we will continue to track your progress over time while providing direction in reaching your fitness and health goals.
