If you could know, in 60-seconds, vital and accurate information about your body and it’s health, wouldn’t you want to know? Wouldn’t it be great to have a detailed print out that will help you and your doctor (yes, it’s that accurate) understand your body composition, body fat, lean muscle, and visceral fat without undergoing an expensive and invasive test?
The more traditional measures of body composition like BMI are inaccurate and provide no real actionable data on your body. In fact, we have very fit trainers and clients here at the gym that would be considered “obese” simply based on the BMI standard of height and weight.
Today, using an InBody body composition scan, we can get accurate measures of your body fat and muscle, AND where it’s located on your body. We can also measure the very dangerous visceral fat that can literally kill you. Visceral fat is the fat that forms around vital organs such as the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and leads to increased risk of coronary artery disease, cancer, stroke, dementia, diabetes, depression, arthritis, obesity, sexual dysfunction, and sleep disorders.
For our clients, the first InBody scan serves as a baseline so that we can measure their progress over the course of time. Coach Courtney Zinzi, our nutrition coach at Next Level says it best, “The scale alone has never been an accurate measure of success because as you are losing weight and exercising, you are also CHANGING your body’s composition. Yes, you’re losing fat, but you’re also gaining LEAN muscle. With the Inbody, clients can see, in black and white, that their body fat and visceral fat is decreasing significantly. That is so much more satisfying and affirming than stepping on a scale.”
Many doctor’s offices and some gyms offer the InBody test for a fee. At Next Level, the InBody scan is available to anyone wishing to come in for a free, no-obligation fitness assessment with one of our experienced trainers. Just give us a call, we’re happy to chat! 703-754-0161.
