Overview

At Bulldog Gym, we pride ourselves on helping our members achieve results and we measure those results using data.

Specifically, the InBody 570 helps us measure Body Composition. Most people who come through our doors are looking to lose weight or gain muscle. The scale doesn’t tell the whole story, but the InBody 570 does.

Inbody Composition Scan Includes:

  • Body Fat Percentage
  • Lean Body Mass
  • Skeletal Muscle Mass
  • Total Body Water  
  • Segmental Fat Analysis – how much fat do you have in each limb?
  • Segmental Lean Analysis – how much muscle do you have in each limb?
  • Visceral Fat Level
  • Basal Metabolic Rate
  • 98% accurate compared to a DEXA scan

Preparing for Your Scan

For the most accurate results, we recommend following these preparation guidelines:

  • Do not eat for 3-4 hours before testing
  • Do not exercise for 6-12 hours before testing
  • Ensure access to both feet with removable footwear and socks
  • Do not drink caffeine on the day of your test and be well hydrated
  • Do not shower or sauna immediately prior to test
  • Avoid putting lotion on hands and feet before testing
  • Individuals with pacemakers or other electronic devices should not use the InBody
  • For women, avoid testing if you are pregnant or menstruating

If you have any questions regarding your InBody appointment, contact us.


Scan Procedure -What to Expect

Upon arriving, we will utilize a device known as a stadiometer to accurately measure your height (this is only required for your first scan).

Next, you will need to use a pre-moistened towelette to wipe your hands and feet to remove any excess oil and/or dirt from your skin. This will improve impedance and therefore will improve the accuracy of your scan.

Next, after removing items from your pockets, jewelry and/or any excess clothing (e.g., jackets, hoodies, etc), you will step onto the scanner.

The scan itself will take only 30-45 seconds.

Finally, our trainer will spend approximately 30 minutes reviewing the scan with you and answering any questions.

Scan Overview (Information You Will Receive)

Body Composition Analysis

The body weight is the sum of Body Fat Mass and Lean Body Mass, which is composed of Dry Lean Mass and Total Body Water. Total Body Water is the sum of Intracellular Water and Extracellular Water. Extracellular Water is the total amount of water outside the body’s cell. Maintain a balanced body composition to stay healthy.

Muscle-Fat Analysis

Compare the bar lengths of Skeletal Muscle Mass and Body Fat Mass. The longer the Skeletal Muscle Mass bar is compared to the Body Fat Mass bar, the stronger the body is. Skeletal Muscle Mass is the Amount of Muscle attached to the bones. Body Fat Mass is the sum of the subcutaneous fat, visceral fat, and fat surrounding muscles. Subcutaneous fat is found beneath the skin, while visceral fat is found surrounding internal organs in the abdoman.

Obesity Analysis

PBF: Percent Body Fat is the percentage of body fat compared to body weight.
BMI: Body Mass Index is an index used to determine obesity by using height and weight.

Segmental Lean Analysis

Evaluates whether the muscles are adequately developed in the body. The top bar shows the comparison of muscle mass ideal weight while the bottom bar shows that to current weight.

ECW/TBW Analysis

ECW/TBW, the ratio of Extracellular Water to Total Body Water, is an important indicator whether the body water is balanced. If your ECW/TBW is higher than .390, please consult your physician.

Body Composition History

Track the history of body compositional changes. Take the InBody Test peroidically to monitor your progress. COntinuously measuring under the same ID allows the InBody to save each test for future comparison. The Body Composition History allows an individual to track the changes in body composition over their most recent eight results or cumulative graph that shows the progress from the first test results to the most recent results.

Visceral Fat Level

Visceral Fat Level is an indicator based on the estimated amount of fat surrounding internal organs in the abdomen. Maintain a Visceral Fat Level under 10 to stay healthy.

Basal Metabolic Rate

Basal metabolic rate is the minimal rate of energy expenditure at rest. It accounts for 60-75% of the daily calorie expenditure by individuals.
