In case you didn't hear, With that, we've recently added the Inbody 570 to our gym which helps people accurately measure your body composition.
If you don't know, body composition is a method of describing what the body is made of, including fat protein, minerals and body water. It’s also describes weight more accurately than BMI.
With that being said, here are 3 reasons why you need to know your body composition.
1. Find out if you’re skinny fat
People often assume skinny people are healthy but that’s not always the case. Skinny fat is a term used to describe people who are thin but have more fat and less muscle than recommended. These people have the same health risks as someone who is obese. Knowing your body composition can help you understand your health risks and take the actions necessary to prevent certain diseases.
2. Use body composition to stay motivated and reach your goals
Use an accurate body composition method, like InBody’s patented BIA technology, to see your percent body fat decrease and your muscle mass increase. Knowing your body composition helps you see changes you can’t see with a regular scale. Track these changes so you can see yourself becoming healthier and stronger.
3. BMI doesn’t tell the whole story
You know your Body Mass Index (BMI). But what does that really mean? BMI doesn’t factor in muscle or fat mass, therefore it is an inaccurate representation of a person’s health. For example, a body builder could be categorized as obese based on BMI, because they have a higher ratio of weight to height.
