BODY COMPOSITION TESTING- INBODY

Weight can be misleading when used as an indicator of health. Your body is a complex structure made of different components such as water, fat, and muscle. To thoroughly learn about your body and its condition, take the InBody test. In less than 30 seconds, the InBody will reveal your body fat percentage, muscle distribution, and body water balance. Watch the improvements from exercise and diet and do not let your hard work go to waste.
*Please call about specific steps that should be followed prior to your test.
