How to prepare for an accurate body composition analysis:

The Inbody520 Body Composition Analyzer is a state-of-the-art piece of equipment that uses electrical impedance to determine exactly “what you’re made of.” Read “What are you made of?” to learn more Intense 22 Fitness body composition analysisabout the Inbody520. The Inbody is 98% accurate in a clinical setting. Although Intense 22 Fitness is not a clinical setting, it’s pretty close. Here are some steps to take for the most accurate body comp. analysis:

  • Do not eat for 2-4 hours prior to testing
  • Do not exercise 12 hours prior to testing
  • Do not consume alcohol for 24 hours prior to testing
  • Hydrate properly the day before
  • Do not drink caffeine on the day of your test
  • Insure access to both feet with removable footwear (no socks or pantyhose)
  • Do not wear jewelry- all jewelry will have to be removed prior to testing
  • Do not put lotion on your hands and feet
  • Do not use sauna or take a shower immediately before measurement
  • Measure after standing for 2-5 minutes
  • Intestines and bowls should be as empty as possible
  • For females, avoid having measurement during menstrual period as total body water will be higher than normal (increase in extracellular water)
