Body Composition

At Revive Wellness, we measure body composition with a bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA). The machine sends a safe, low-level electrical current through your body. The electrical current travels at different speeds through different body tissues such as muscle and fat which determines an individual’s muscle mass and fat mass.

Body composition is key to tracking progression and change over time in lean tissue versus body fat. An effective nutrition and exercise program leads to a beneficial increase of lean tissue, while reducing body fat levels: thus increasing overall strength, resting metabolic rate, and health outcomes of the individual. This trumps the traditional number-on-the-scale-approach, because when an individual increases their lean body mass, this gives a false and often negative perception that the individual is gaining weight and should stop their programming despite increases in strength and overall energy.

Add to an existing package, or purchase on its own. Find out your body composition for $62.

Disclaimer:

BIA body composition testing is not recommended in the following conditions:

  • People with electric medical devices such as pacemakers or any metallic supports
  • Women who are pregnant
  • Women who are menstruating
