Body Composition Analysis (BCA)
A Body Composition Analysis (BCA) is a great way to track fat percentage, muscle mass, Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and fat free mass. Body composition is the breakdown of how your body weight is actually made up: what percentage of you is fat and what percentage of you is lean tissue (bones, muscles, water, connective tissue and organ tissues). It is this balance of fat and lean tissue that tells you what shape you’re in, not weight, which is why regular body composition tests are essential for people serious about their long term health. A BCA takes less than two minutes and is non-invasive.
All BCA appointments must be booked directly through a Fitness Advisor. It is required that you follow the BCA pre-test guidelines before the appointment to ensure the results are as accurate as possible. These will be explained you by the Fitness Advisor when you make the appointment.
At the time of the appointment you will be asked to remove your shoes and socks and stand on the BCA machine platform. You are advised to wear one layer of light clothing.
Our Fitness Advisors will discuss your results in detail explaining each of the elements of the test and will instruct on ways to improve your results.
