The best method to use when setting and measuring your body goals is by looking at your ‘fat to weight ratio’ (also known as body fat percentage). Unlike other common methods of measurement such as Body Mass Index (BMI), your fat to weight ratio takes into account your individual overall body composition – not just population-level averages. The Alternature Body Composition scan allows us to separate and segment your body fat from other factors which affect your overall weight (such as your muscle, bone & water).
By doing this, we can calculate your body fat percentage by dividing your total body fat by your total body weight.
Having a clear understanding of where your fat, muscle, and body levels are at means that you’ll have an accurate baseline and starting-point to guide and help you to achieve your goals: whether you’re looking to lose areas of unwanted fat, to build lean-muscle, or you’re focusing on a complete body transformation.
By undergoing regular body scans, you’ll be able to track & measure the changes in your body composition and chart your progress over time so you quickly and easily monitor your progress in reaching your goals, and make adjustments to your training or strategy in order to stay in track.
