Comprehensive Fitness Appraisal
Before beginning an exercise program, a Comprehensive Fitness Appraisal (MicroFit® Complete Fitness & Wellness Profile) will be conducted to provide a baseline of your current fitness level. The results of these tests, along with the development of personal fitness goals, will help us design a safe, effective and individualized fitness program for you.
This assessment determines the percentage of body fat by measuring skinfold thickness. This measurement is taken via a 7-site skinfold (that is gender-specific) in order to measure the subcutaneous fat (below the skin) in the body. Multiple sites are analyzed given the variability in fat distribution from site-to-site and person-to-person.
BIA is a method of determining body composition by passing a small electrical current through the body and measuring the impedance or resistance to the current flow. A BIA (Tanita) scale is used to estimate your weight, body fat percentage, body mass index, fat mass, fat-free mass, basal metabolic rate, total body water, and hydration level.
