Look beyond the scale! See you what you’re really made of with the InBody 270, a new piece of equipment that uses cutting-edge technology to measure many areas, including:
|Weight||Body Fat Mass||Body Composition History|
|Lean Body Mass||Skeletal Muscle Mass||Body Fat-LBM Control|
|Dry Lean Mass||Percent Body Fat||Segmental Lean Analysis|
|Total Body Water||Body Mass Index||Basal Metabolic Rate|
InBody is trusted by top hospitals, gyms and professional sports teams because of its precision and ease of use. The machine is fast, accurate and non-invasive. It is also the only machine that is correlated to be 98% as accurate as the DEXA (Dual-Energy X-R
ay Absorptiometer) commonly regarded as the industry’s gold standard. The average cost of a DEXA scan is $132.
Our Certified and Trained Personal Trainers & Nutrition Specialists will utilize the InBody 270 to lead you through a full body composition analysis! Assessment appointments are only 15 minutes and include a full analysis printout of your results.
MEMBER: $30/scan – NON-MEMBER: $40/scan
*You may test bi-monthly or monthly to monitor your fitness and nutrition training. Progress Tracker Package available for multiple scans. Ask about pricing.
For the most accurate and consistent results, we encourage participants to adhere to the following guidelines:
• Hydrate well the day before.
• Do not drink caffeine the day of your test.
• Do not eat for 3 to 4 hours prior to testing.
• Do not exercise 6 to 12 hours prior to testing.
• Do not take InBody test after a shower or sauna.
• Do not consume alcohol 24 hours prior to testing.
• Avoid using lotion on hands or feet.
• For women, avoid testing if you are menstruating.
• Individuals with pacemakers and other electronic medical devices or women who are pregnant should not use InBody.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO PERFORM A TEST?
The InBody test lasts approximately 45 seconds, and is followed by a short consultation to describe the data and answer questions.
WHAT ARE IMPORTANT GUIDELINES USERS SHOULD OR SHOULD NOT DO BEFORE A TEST?
Before a test, you should:
- Use the bathroom
- Maintain the same testing conditions as your previous test (for second test)
- Use an InBody tissue to wipe down electrodes (provided)
- Avoid eating or wait two hours after a meal
- Avoid testing if before the test, you:
- Exercised strenuously
- Used a sauna, steam room, or bath
- Consumed diuretics such as caffeine, alcohol, and medication
- Have a fever, cold, or chill
WHY DO I NEED TO REMOVE MY SHOES AND SOCKS FOR THE TEST?
Because the bottom of your feet must be in direct contact with the electrodes, clothing items such as shoes, socks, stockings or leggings must be removed for accurate results.
WHAT FACTORS CAN AFFECT THE ACCURACY OF MY TEST RESULTS?
Changes in body composition reflect body status, which may be affected by factors such as disease, nutrition, hydration, and medication. Accessories such as jewelry may interfere with the electrical conductivity. It is recommended to maintain the same testing conditions from test to test to produce high data reproducibility and comparability.
WHO ARE NOT RECOMMENDED TO TAKE AN INBODY TEST?
- People with artificial electrical implants such as a defibrillator or pacemaker should not be tested. The electrical currents of the InBody may disrupt the functionality of life-sustaining implants.
- Women who are on their menstrual cycle may not get obtain accurate results due to subtle changes in hydration and body water levels.
- Pregnant women are not recommended to take the test because of the body’s constant fluctuations during pregnancy.
HOW DOES THE INBODY WORK?
InBody devices use direct segmental measurement bioelectrical impedance analysis (DSM-BIA), a patented technology, to precisely measure body composition by sending multiple electrical currents through the body, resulting in up to six different impedance readings for the trunk and each of the four limbs. The innovative in-depth analysis of the InBody exam yields accurate results for body composition outputs, such as body fat mass, skeletal muscle mass, (segmental) lean body mass, and percent body fat.
