Body Composition Analyser

At Vibra-Train, we like to say “forget your weight – remember your SHAPE”

It’s not about how much you weigh – it’s how your body’s weight is made up that’s important.   Traditional, and even BMI scales, don’t take into account how much muscle and bone form part of someone’s whole body weight;  they only show how much someone weighs.

For example, let’s take the All Blacks:  if we just took into account how much they weighed, four of them would be obese and the rest overweight.  I don’t think so – do you?!?  All you have to do is look at their physiques.  Those guys are carrying lots of muscle and very little fat.Body composition analyser body analyser image what is body composition?

We ask our members not to take any notice of scales.  Instead, take more notice of how your clothes start fitting.   Scales may not move very fast but body composition will.

Our focus is to build lean muscle and to turn bodies into “fat burning machines”. 

Having the BCA gives proof that muscle is building and body fat is going down – even if the overall body weight measure on the scales doesn’t shift very much.

When you’re carrying more muscle, it means your body naturally has a higher metabolism, which in turn means you’re able to eat a lot more.  Obviously that doesn’t mean anything you want!

Another example of why the BCA is one of our favourite gadgets is that of a lady a while ago who was told by her doctor she had to lose half her weight (according to her BMI).

For this woman it meant going from 140kg to 70kg.  Mentally it was beyond her.  She felt there was no way she could ever do that.   Physically, she was carrying a lot of muscle and was big boned.   After her BCA test she was relieved to learn her goal weight should be a healthy 100kg.   She still had a bit to lose but far more realistic given her amount of muscle and bone.

Likewise, at the other end of the spectrum we’ve had women who virtually starve themselves to stay slim.  In these situations the BCA invariably proves that bone is less than it should be – which means osteoporosis is very likely in later life – and muscle is way below average…

In situations like these it’s not surprising that inside this slim body their body fat and body fat percentage is usually “obese” at over 33%.  These women look ‘slim’ but their body composition shows they’re ‘internally’ unhealthy.

Here at Vibra-Train we’re really into healthy body weight,  for $15.00, anyone can pop into the studio and see how their body weight is made up.
