When you step on a scale and see that you've lost 2 pounds, what have you really lost? Muscle, fat, water? Cr8 Fitness has an InBody so you can change the way you see your weight and understand your health better.
Think about when you take your car into the shop for an inspection. In order to examine the condition of the car, the mechanic opens the hood, checks the fluids, and inspects the working components.
Body composition analysis is the same idea, except instead of examining your engine oil level or testing the battery life, you are getting a measurement of your fat, muscle mass, and body water levels.
By “looking under the hood” and understanding what areas you need to improve on in order to achieve a healthy body composition, you will look and feel so much better!
This is what you are made of!
Knowing how much Muscle, Fat and Water you are currently made of will give you a starting point. Your first InBody scan might be a bit scary. Remember it is numbers, a starting point. From there changes in your diet, your activity level, addressing your stress, and amount of sleep will start to change those numbers.
The best thing about a machine and numbers, they do not have feelings, judge, or talk about you to others. As your coach, I can help you work out a plan to get those numbers moving in the right direction. Don't take my word for it, I could spend hours on the InBody website. They do a great job explaining those numbers and what you can do about them. "Your Metabolism and Your Body Composition" is just one of many articles that helps you to see how the InBody be a tool to help you achieve your health goals.
Our Step Up, Grab Hold, and See What You're Made of October Challenge will give you a peek into how InBody can assist you. During the week of October 1-4 everyone will do their first Inbody scan. A second scan will be done the week of October 14-18, and then a third the week of October 28-31. Knowing you will be stepping on the InBody three times this month can give you the accountability to stay with a healthier eating plan. It will give you the awareness your choices over time gives to your body. Having more awareness and more accountability are two factors to drop unwanted body fat.
True story: "I weigh myself everyday. My weight bounces within a 3-5 pound range and I am content with that. A few weeks ago, I decided to train 4 days a week and push myself hard. I noticed quickly that my weight jumped up consistently 2 pounds. My first thought was to stop eating totally. I had been tracking my meals and didn't feel I deserved 2 pounds. In fact I felt my clothes were actually a bit loser than usual. What was going on. It was then I heard Coach Dean in my head, "do a scan, get the facts. you need numbers not feelings". I hate it when he is right. Those two pounds were an increase in muscle, my body fat had gone down. Now I actually could do a jump for joy, my hard work was paying off. Thank you InBody and Coach Dean for nailing it down for me."
