Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 3.17.47 PMHave you ever stepped on your bathroom scale feeling great after watching what you are eating and working out only to see a higher number appear on the scale?  Most bathroom scales only measure your total body weight.  You may have lost body fat and gained lean muscle but your bathroom scale is just telling you that you weight more, how frustrating!  You feel great, your clothes are fitting better and you feel that the scale should reflect that.  We have a solution, the InBody 520!

The InBody 520 will tell you exactly what your body is made of.  After just a few minutes, a printout will show you your total body weight and break down how much is lean muscle and how much is fat, down to the 10th of a pound. The printout also breaks down your Body Fat Percentage (PBF), Body Mass Index (BMI) and Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Your BMR is how many calories you burn naturally in a day.  Towards the bottom of the sheet, you can see exactly how your lean muscle is distributed throughout your body, are you balnaced? Or is one side stronger than the other? It also reads your water balance, so you will know whether your cells are properly hydrated or not. InBody devices are used by the NASA workforce at the Johnson Space Center.

Sample InBody 520 Print outThe InBody 520 allows us to more accurately track our member’s progress. One member, for example, only saw a loss of 2 pounds on her bathroom scale and thought “All of this work for 2 pounds!” She was understandably frustrated and discouraged, thinking she wasn’t getting any results.  Then she stepped on the InBody… when her results printed, we showed her that, yes her overall total body weight had only decreased by 2 lbs, but what had actually happened was that she lost 6 lbs of fat, and gained 4 lbs of muscle! Which are GREAT results and nothing to feel discouraged about! That is the power of the InBody.  Read our Blog from May 2015 for more info!
