What are you made of?
InBody technology at The Summit
When the Dalai Lama asked what surprised him about humanity the most, he replied, “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.”
Fortunately for us and our fellow Summit members, life doesn’t have to be this way. Regardless of your final goals, a great first step in taking control of our health is to know our body composition. To make strategic improvements, we must assess and understand the current state of affairs, essentially.
Body composition analysis is a better way to understand the relationship between health and weight, versus traditional assessment methods like body mass index (BMI), which can be misleading. Body composition analysis offers much more information than just a number on a scale; it analyzes your body to compute the percentages of fat, bone, water, and muscle mass in human bodies. In comparison, BMI is simply a measure of body fat based on height and weight. It does not describe what your body weight is made of. Understanding the differences between thinness, leanness, overweight, and obesity is important for health care providers (and each of us) when it comes to proper nutrition, physical fitness goals, ratio of fat loss to muscle growth and when experiencing changes due maturation and aging.
As a Summit member, you are entitled to one free InBody composition analysis annually using InBody technology. In simple terms, you stand on the InBody platform, hold the handles as the machine scans your mass and then creates a detailed report on muscle mass, body fat, basal metabolic rate, body water, and more. It’s a great snapshot of your health – to help inform your well-being or your fitness goals. Summit personal trainers and wellness coaches can help interpret your results in a short 15-minute consultation. Adding to the report, we can also help you develop a plan of action, with as much or as little support as you’d like.
For the most accurate results, come to the appointment with an empty stomach and use the restroom prior to the test. Be sure to schedule your free InBody consult today at The Summit - call the fitness desk at (406)-751-4102 or member services office at (406) 751-4107.
