Ever wondered what your metabolic age is, how hydrated you are, or what your muscle mass to fat ratio is? Forget basic scales - let us tell you with our body composition scanning tools, and use it to track your progress.

“DON’T BE DETERRED BY THE NUMBER ON THE SCALES! YOU’RE ONLY GETTING HALF THE STORY!

People often freak out when they see their “weight” on the scales, however this is only our overall mass. We need to understand that our mass is determined by several factors. Yes, adipose tissue (FAT) is one component (WHICH WE NEED & SERVES ITS PURPOSE), but also contributing to our mass is muscle, bone, water, fluids, organs and other connective tissues. Regular scales will not give you such data. In order to get an accurate reading on your overall body mass, this requires segmental body composition analysis.

Measuring your body composition will give you your body’s own unique makeup and help you identify areas to work on to improve your overall health and wellness. Balmoral Fitness Group uses one of the most advanced bioscan technologies on the market, with accuracy being within 5% of a dexa scan.

SO HOW DOES IT WORK?

BIA (bioelectrical impedance analysis) uses a very small electrical pulse to measure body impedance. The signal is conducted through the water contained in the body. Lean muscle mass has much more water than fat tissue and allows the signal to pass easily. Fat causes impedance or resistance to the signal. Based off the rate at which the signal passes through the body, a calculation is used to estimate fat free mass.
