What is a Body Composition Test?

A Body Composition Test provides detailed insights into your body’s composition, including muscle mass, body fat percentage, hydration levels, and more. By understanding these metrics, you can optimise exercise and training programmes, track your progress, and see if you’re on track to achieve your goals.

Who can benefit from a Body Composition Test?

Whether your goals are to maintain mobility, manage weight, improve strength, or enhance athletic performance, a body composition analysis can help you address your specific health and fitness goals more effectively. Whether you’re seeking to lose, maintain, or gain weight, understanding your body composition is essential. Our test provides precise measurements of body fat percentage and mass, helping you make informed decisions about your diet and exercise to achieve your weight management goals effectively.

Whether you’re seeking to lose, maintain, or gain weight, understanding your body composition is essential. Our test provides precise measurements of body fat percentage and mass, helping you make informed decisions about your diet and exercise to achieve your weight management goals effectively.

For individuals focused on improving strength, endurance, and overall fitness, our test offers insights into muscle mass, hydration status, and metabolic rate. These measurements enable you to optimise your strength training and conditioning programs for enhanced performance and results.

If you’re aiming to build muscle mass and increase strength, our Body Composition Test provides invaluable information to track progress and optimise your training regimen. By monitoring muscle mass percentage and distribution, you can tailor your workouts and nutrition plan to maximise muscle growth and development.

Athletes at all levels can benefit from our Body Composition Test to fine-tune their training, nutrition, and performance strategies. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, understanding your body composition helps you optimise your athletic performance, prevent injuries, and achieve peak physical condition.

As we age, maintaining muscle mass becomes increasingly important to combat sarcopenia, the age-related loss of muscle mass and strength. Our test helps older adults monitor muscle mass and overall body composition to support mobility, independence, and overall well-being.

Track Your Progress and Achieve Your Goals

The Body Composition Test provides insights into several key indicators, including:

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. It helps assess overall health and determine if weight falls within a healthy range for a given height.

Understanding body fat composition is crucial for assessing overall health and fitness. Monitoring body fat percentage and mass can help track progress in weight management and assess risk factors for chronic diseases.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories your body needs to maintain basic physiological functions at rest. Knowing your BMR can guide calorie intake for weight management and energy balance.

Muscle mass is essential for strength, mobility, and metabolic health. Monitoring muscle mass percentage and mass can help optimise exercise routines and track muscle development.

Proper hydration is vital for overall health and athletic performance. Monitoring hydration status helps ensure optimal fluid balance and supports physiological functions.

Assessing cell health provides insights into overall cellular function and vitality. Healthy cells are essential for efficient metabolism, immune function, and tissue repair.

Understanding limb muscle and fat mass distribution can help identify muscle imbalances, optimise training programs, and monitor progress in strength and body composition.

How Does The Test Work?

Our test utilises a state-of-the-art SOZO® analyser, one of less than 5 in the country. The SOZO® works by passing 256 low frequency impulses through your body to measure your body fat, lean mass, hydration and cell health. Your bathroom or gym scales will normally utilise four or five frequencies.

The SOZO® assessment itself is really simple and takes less than a minute, it’s non-invasive and only requires you to take off your shoes and socks to stand on the platform.

As well as the standard health indicators such as BMI and metabolic rate, the SOZO® helps conduct normally complex measurements such as total body water, protein and mineral levels, fat mass, and more which can all be used to offer a comprehensive overview of your health.
