A DXA Body Composition Analysis provides baseline measurements and track changes in body fat and muscle mass over time, providing useful information to assess progress towards your goal.
This scientifically validated technique is available for anyone wanting highly accurate body composition information to help tailor their fitness training or weight loss program.
A DXA Body Composition Analysis is considered the gold standard measure of body composition, and has been proven to be significantly more accurate than other technologies such as skinfold (calliper) measurements and bioelectrical impedance.
There is no specific preparation required. Medications can be taken as normal. A referral from your health professional is not required.
