They have performed over 3,000 evaluations using the Body Pod. The cost for the initial test is $50.00, with all subsequent tests being $35.00</font></p> <p><font color="black" face="Arial" size="3">This technology uses air displacement. Compared to previous methods of testing body fat. The Body Pod is quick, comfortable, and extremely accurate.</font></p> <p><font color="black" face="Arial" size="3">If a person can distinguish between their fat content and lean component, and they are told what their anatomical ideal weight should be, they will be able to succeed in attaining their ideal body composition. Athletes want to gain muscle mass, while others desire to maximize fat loss.</font></p> <p><font color="black" face="Arial" size="3">Most people know what they weigh on the scale, but experts say that it is more important to know your body fat and body composition.</font></p> <p><font color="black" face="Arial" size="3">With an initial measurement, you have a baseline that you can compare values against after you've been losing weight or started physical activity. With re-measurements, you can find out if you are losing fat and putting on lean muscle, or if you are cutting into lean muscle with weight loss.</font></p> <p><font color="black" face="Arial" size="3">The problem with most other methods is that they are not always accurate. Correct body composition information is necessary so that you know what your ideal weight should be and if your program is working.</font></p> <p><font color="black" face="Arial" size="3">Experts agree that the best way to optimize fat loss, and gain lean mass is through appropriate diet, combined with aerobic and resistance exercise. The Institute also has programs that can get you started on proper nutrition for weight loss and exercise prescription programs.</font></p> </font> <p align="center"><font color="firebrick" face="Arial"><strong><u>What Is The BODY POD?</u></strong></font></p></font> <p><font face="Arial">The Body Pod is the newest, state of the art technology in body composition and replaces the need for, and inconvenience of underwater weighing. It is the <b><u>only</u> </b>body composition device created with direct support from the U.S. National Institutes of Health, and the BODY POD's superior technology provides accuracy when other methods fail.</font> </p><b><font size="5"> <p align="center"><u><font color="firebrick" face="Arial">Who Can Benefit From A Body Pod Test?</font></u></p> <p align="center"></p></font></b><b><font size="5"> <ul></b></font><font size="4"> <p align="center"> <li><font face="Arial"><font color="green">Athletes seeking ultimate performance</font> </font> <p><font color="green"></font></p> <p align="center"><font color="green"></font></p> <li><font face="Arial"><font color="green">Persons who wish to lose body fat</font> </font> <p><font color="green"></font></p> <p align="center"><font color="green"></font></p> <li><font face="Arial"><font color="green">Persons who wish to gain muscle</font> </font> <p><font color="green"></font></p> <li><font color="green" face="Arial">Persons interested in improving their health</font></font></li></ul><b><font size="5"> <p align="center"><u><font color="firebrick" face="Arial">The Body Pod Story</font></u></p></font></b> <p><font face="Arial">Many health and fitness professionals consider <b>body composition</b> the single best indicator of the cumulative effect of physical activity and nutrition. With the support of the U.S. National Institutes of Health and several leading universities, Life Measurement Instruments has developed the most revolutionary body composition device in the world, the Body Pod!</font> </p> <p><font face="Arial">Since its introduction, the Body Pod has appeared on national and local television (The Discovery Channel, ABC, and CBS) and in such magazines as SELF, Men's Health, Vogue, Women's Health and Fitness and U.S. News and World Report. The Body Pod is now available here at the Washington Institute of Sports Medicine. Just call today to set up an appointment!</font> </p><b><font size="5"> <p align="center"><u><font color="firebrick" face="Arial">Why Measure Body Composition?</font></u></p></font></b> <p><font face="Arial"> The scale%u2019s limitation is that it can only measure your weighy. It can tell the difference between fat and muscle. Often, people begin exercising only to find their weight doesn't change at all. This can happen because fat is being lost at the same time muscle is being gained. By knowing your body composition, you can focus on <i>losing fat</i> while <i>preserving or building lean muscle</i>. This is the best way to achieve success, whether you are interested in athletic performance or just looking to improve your health and appearance.</font> </p><b><font size="5"> <p align="center"><font color="firebrick" face="Arial"><u>How Does the BODY POD Work?</u></font></p></font></b> <p><font face="Arial">The BODY POD is based on the same whole-body measurement principles as underwater weighing; the overall density of the body can be used to determine the percentage of fat and lean tissue. This is because lean tissue is more dense than fat.</font> </p> <p><font face="Arial"> The real advantage of the BODY POD is that it uses air instead of water. This means the BODY POD test is fast, simple, effortless, and a lot more fun!</font> </p> <p><font face="Arial">We utilize whole body plethysmographic instrumentation for accurate results. This is a $30,000 state of the art system, which duplicates the accuracy of hydrostatic weighing, using air displacement technology. Each test takes a few minutes.</font> </p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <!-- content cell0.content0 end --> </td></tr> </table> </td> <!-- column 0 end --> </tr> </table> <!-- row 0 end --> <!-- </table> -- > <!-- layout style = 2 end --> </td> </tr> </table> <!-- siteState = --></body> </html>
