INBODY® ASSESMENT & CONSULTATION

Do you want to know what you are made of? Body composition analysis is essential to completely understanding your health and weight. Traditional methods of assessing health do not always give enough information. Going beyond your bathroom scale thru the InBody assessment can give you valuable information including: fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water. InBody measures your body composition and displays it on an organized, easy-to-understand Result Sheet with a detailed analysis of locations of fat and lean muscle, quantities of water levels in the body, and a guide to helping  you achieve your goals.

(1) ½ hour session consisting of a comprehensive INBODY® assessment, consultation and nutritional guidance.
