Your body composition is more than just a number on the scale. With the InBody 570 body composition test, you can quickly and easily learn about your muscle density, body fat distribution, and more.
The InBody 570 body composition analyzer goes beyond traditional body composition testing, measuring your fat, muscle, and total body water. The InBody 570 divides total body water data into intracellular water and extracellular water levels. These values are important for understanding your fluid distribution in wellness and fitness contexts.
Why should I test my body composition?
Scales, including home-use body composition scales, are useful for directional measurement but don’t tell you the entire story. As an example, home-use body composition scales typically use empirical estimation to display your body fat percentage, which means a formula is predicting your body fat rather than actually measuring it!
The InBody 570 body composition analyzer only uses impedance to determine your body composition results. We never use empirical estimations such as gender and age to estimate your body composition.
In addition, “MfBIA [InBody 570] and DXA appear to be strongly correlated when evaluating body fat percentage” according to a study published by Miller, Ryan M.; Chambers, Tony L.; Burns, Stephen P. (October 2016). “Validating InBody® 570 Multi-frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analyzer versus DXA for Body Fat Percentage Analysis” (PDF). Journal of Exercise Physiology online. 19: 71–78. ISSN 1097-9751
While DEXA has limited availability and higher costs, the InBody 570 body composition test is quick, non-invasive, and much more affordable!
How does an InBody 570 Body Composition Test work?
Body composition testing is simple and incredibly easy! There is no need to hold your breath in a tank of water, be subjected to radiation, or get pinched. Give our team just a few minutes to complete your body composition test! We instantly provide you with results both on paper and through the InBody app (available on iOS and Android.)
For this test, consistency is key with your measurements. As an example, you should test your body composition at a consistent time and training state, such as fully fasted in the morning. Always be sure to wear lightweight, form fitting clothing. We’ll send you a number of ways to make sure every test is consistent when you schedule!
How Often Should I Test My Body Composition?
You can test your body composition as often as you’d like! For clients focused on weight loss or improving their body composition, test as often as weekly. For athletes who are maintaining their current level of fitness, test every month or as often as desired.
