What is a body analysis?
This test determines exactly what your starting point is and serves as an excellent tool for tracking your progress. (E.g. body fat, lean muscle, water, basal metabolic rate).

Interpreting your printout
BMI is a ratio of a person’s weight and height to gauge total body fat in adults and is a good indicator of health risk.
Basal Metabolic Rate represents the total energy expended by the body to maintain minimal normal functions at rest such as respiration, circulation, digestion, etc.. BMR decreases with age and with the loss of lean body mass. Increasing muscle mass increases BMR .
- There are two kinds of fat: Essential and Non-essential fat.
- Essential fat is that amount of fat necessary for maintenance of life and reproductive functions. The percentage for women is greater than that for men, due to the demands of childbearing and other hormonal functions.
- Non-essential fat is everything else. There is a normal range for men and women, but having more fat than necessary can lead to many health problems.
- FFM (Muscle)
Fat Free Mass is comprised of muscle, bone, tissue, water, and anything else other than fat in the body.
- DESIRABLE RANGE
There is a healthy range for FAT % and FAT MASS that is recommended based on several factors (age, gender, etc.). Staying within this range will decrease risk factors for many diseases and increase quality of life.
Total Body Water is the amount of water retained in the body.
Impedance uses electrical current to determine body fat %. Since fat tissue absorbs ("impedes") the current, the amount of absorption that occurs is directly related to % body fat.
- FAT %
Essential fat is 2–5% in men, and 10–13% in women.This fat protects many parts of the body including internal organs in the chest and abdomen.
The minimum recommended total body fat percentage exceeds the essential fat percentage value reported above.
Total Body Water is said to comprise between 50% -70% of total body weight. Generally, men tend to have higher water weight than women due to a greater amount of muscle.
A significant fraction of the human body is water.
Lean muscle tissue = 75% water
Blood = 95% water.
Body fat =14% water.
Bone = 22% water.
Your skin also contains water.
