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, athletes can optimise their training regimens, track progress, and achieve peak performance.

What Does The Test Include?

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.

Grip strength is a marker of overall muscle strength and function. It correlates with upper body strength and can be used as a predictor of overall health and longevity.

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.
