InBody Analysis

InBody Analysis

InBody Analysis:

The In-Body test is a BIA (bioelectrical impedance analysis) test that measures your BMI (body mass index), muscle mass, body fat percentage, total body water, and basal metabolic rate. This test will show you where your body is storing fat, the muscle in each area of your body (left/right arms, left/right legs, and torso), and more. This test is comparable to hydrostatic testing for body fat. The InBody will track your progress with your I-Number. ($1 for the first two tests, and $5 for tests after)...

Blood Pressure

Blood Pressure

Blood Pressure: 

High blood pressure usually has no symptoms. In fact, many people have this disease for years without knowing it. Having high blood pressure (hypertension) doesn't mean you're tense, nervous or hyperactive; you can be a calm, relaxed person and still have hypertension. A single high reading doesn't mean you have high blood pressure, but it's a sign that you need to watch it carefully.

Anthropomorphic Measurements

Anthropometric Measurements (wt, ht, waist/hip ratio):

The anthropometric measurements are commonly used as evaluation by comparing individual measurements to reference standards, represented by percentiles. It is most helpful to evaluate a pattern of measurements obtained on a regular basis over time. These measurements will assess how and where your fat is stored.

For Your Appointment:

Must wear BYU-Idaho approved gym clothing.

Body Composition

Body Composition

Body Composition

Describes the different components that make up a person's body weight broken down into fat and lean weight (body fat percenatge). Levels of body fat seem to be related to performance. To increase or decrease your percent of body fat, you need to create the right balance between the calories you consume and the calories you burn. The most effective way to do this is increase your activity level. Aerobic exercise is a very effective way to decrease body fat, however you must combine strength training in order to maintain or gain muscle mass and tone....

Cardiovascular VO2 Max

Cardiovascular (VO2 Max):

VO2 Max is used to classify cardio-respiratory fitness and is used to prescribe exercise programs. It is a very simple way to figure out personal fitness status and allows you to evaluate your fitness changes over time. Using your VO2 Max to prescribe a fitness program will help you know how you can improve your cardiovascular fitness, or your ability to perform exercise that involves large muscle groups at moderate-to-high intensity for prolonged periods. This is one of the most important components of physical fitness and should be checked every 3-4 months.

For Your Appointment:

Must wear BYUI approved gym clothing.

Muscular Strength

The maximal amount of force that a muscle group can exert at one time. You'll see increases in your muscular strength as you are able to do 1 repetition of an exercise with a greater amount of resistance (or weight). Benefits of muscular fitness include: the ability to do more strenuous work, to do more work over a longer period of time, being less susceptible to muscular fatigue, less injury prone, improved appearance and improved athletic performance.

For Your Appointment:

Must wear BYUI approved gym clothing.

Muscular Endurance

collapse Muscular Endurance description
Muscular Endurance

Muscular Endurance:

Ability of a group of muscles to exert a sub-maximal force numerous times. Two tests commonly used to measure muscular endurance are push-ups and curl-ups. Push-ups measure upper body endurance and curl-ups measure mid-torso endurance.

Flexibility

When done properly, stretching can do more than just increase flexibility. Benefits of stretching include: enhanced physical fitness, ability to learn and perform skilled movements, increased mental and physical relaxation, and reduced risk of injury to joints, muscles, and tendons. To measure your flexibility in these areas, a test called the Sit and Reach will be used.

For Your Appointment:
