Body composition assessment
This assessment provides a detailed and accurate analysis of body composition and will identify percentage body fat, lean muscle mass, a skinfold map of fat distribution, total body mass and height and an indication of muscularity, leanness and roundness (somatotype). The assessment involves taking a number of skinfold measures from the arm, trunk and lower limbs, bone widths and several girth measurements. Clients are required to wear shorts and a loose fitting top, as access to skin on the arm, back, waist and legs is required. The assessment take approximately 45 minutes and does not cause any pain.
