In the pursuit of a healthier lifestyle, many of us rely on traditional methods like stepping on a scale or calculating BMI to gauge our progress. But here’s the thing: these methods only scratch the surface. They don’t tell us anything about our actual health or how our bodies are changing.

Body composition analysis is the game-changer in understanding your body from the inside out. Unlike BMI or weight measurements, body composition analysis breaks down your body into different components, like fat, muscle, and water. This gives you a clearer picture of your overall health and progress towards your fitness goals.

Using Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), Inbody scanners measure your body’s composition by sending low-level electrical currents through it. This method allows accurate measurement of your fat mass, lean body mass, and water content, helping you track changes over time.

But why is this important? Because when it comes to health, it’s not just about how much you weigh – it’s about what your weight is made of. By focusing on body composition rather than just weight or BMI, you can better understand your progress and make informed decisions about your diet, lifestyle, and training regimen.

So, what does your body composition mean? It’s all about finding the right balance. While there’s no one-size-fits-all answer, we generally aim for a body fat percentage (PBF) within the normal range – 10-20% for males and 18-28% for females. Our coaches are there to talk you through your results and answer any questions you have!

At CA, we use InBody technology that provides our ALL-STARS precise measurements that are used in medical, research, and fitness settings worldwide. So if you’re ready to elevate your health and fitness journey inside the CA walls and be able to hone in on your goals, let’s ditch the scale and focus on what really matters 👊🏼
