REPEAT SCAN USER?
If you have been trained on how to use the machine and want to scan on your own 1x per month for free, you can do so at any location, any time the gym is open for class while following these rules:
1. Always scan before class and it must be a class you are attending. You may NOT show up to scan if you are not registered for a class.
2. Do not ask the Coach for help (unless the machine is off). You must have knowledge of how to use the machine. You will be denied help if you ask for it, as the Coach has teaching responsibilities.
HOW TO READ YOUR SCAN
This is what you will always use to log into the machine. Using this ID will link up your scans every time you do one! Make sure to pay attention to capitalization and spacing.
Body Fat Mass
The total amount of body fat you have, in pounds. Excess body fat can increase your risk for certain disease progression and limit your functionality while too little body fat can also have negative outcomes as well.
Skeletal Muscle Mass
We will use this as our measurement for muscle. Typically you will want to see this number stay the same or increase.
This is your total body weight as you would see it on a scale.
PBF (Percent Body Fat)
This is a category of health. It can be used similarly to BMI. It is influenced by your muscle and body fat mass.
Body Composition History
If you are logging in with your username each time, you will see a history of your body composition that will always show your last eight scans, so you can track how your progress peaks and valleys.
How does the scan work?
Our InBody devices use a method called Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to measure body composition, which divides your weight into different components, such as Lean Body Mass and Fat Mass, to assess health and help guide interventions.
However, unlike other body composition analyzers, we do not use empirical estimations such as age, gender, ethnicity, athleticism, or body shape.
How accurate is the scan?
InBody ‘s four pillars of technology to provide clients with accurate and precise direct segmental measurement multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis (DSM-MFBIA) results that have been extensively validated to gold-standard methods.
Keep in mind that as a scanning machine, it will not be as accurate as a hydrostatic test, but it will give you a very accurate baseline and repeat analysis. Keeping the conditions of your scans the same, you’ll be able to track measurable and meaningful progress.
What are “good numbers?”
While it can be relative to your body type since we are all genetically predisposed for various weight tendencies, here are some very general established health parameters:
- Under 10% –> Very Lean
- 10% – 15% –> Lean, Great Shape!
- 15 – 20% –> Above Average, Good Shape!
- 20 – 25% –> Average
- 25 – 29% –> Slightly Overweight, Little Out of Shape
- 30%+ –> Overweight, Out of Shape
- Under 15% –> Very Lean
- 15 – 20% –> Lean, Great Shape!
- 20 – 25% –> Above Average, Good Shape!
- 25 – 29% –> Average
- 25 – 29% –> Slightly Overweight, Little Out of Shape
- 35% –> Overweight, Out of Shape
How do I get my body fat down and my lean muscle mass up?
We recommend that you check our our library of free nutrition resources: Blog
You can schedule a meeting with coach Ashley above and she will help you implement a nutrition plan that’s right for you and your goals.
Should I care about my BMI?
In this context, we will not be putting significance into your BMI reading. Your body fat percentage is the most relevant number.
What is a reasonable goal?
Losing 2-5 pounds of fat per month or gaining 2-5 pounds of muscle per month are both reasonable expectations with a proper, sustainable diet and frequent outcomes with our Nutrition Coaching Programs.
