One of the best ways to measure the results of your efforts in the kitchen and in the gym is with a Dexa Body scan. Iota Fitness will have a 2017 fitness and nutrition challenge, and the Dexa Body scan is a great way to determine your personal starting point and create a SMART goal (the body scan is NOT required to participate in the challenge. More details on the challenge to come soon!)
The Dexa Body mobile unit will be parked at CrossFit Antietam (700 W. 1700 S. #105, Logan, UT, 84321) on Tuesday, January 3. You should book an appointment, but they can also accommodate a limited number of drop-ins. The cost for the body scan is $47, and you can use HSA/FSA money to pay for the scan.
The Dexa Body mobile unit will be back at CF Antietam in March or April, and you can do another scan to see your results.
More about Dexa Body Scan
DEXA (Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry) is research grade technology which provides the most accurate and precise measurement of body fat, lean mass, and bone density.
It is considered the GOLD standard of body fat testing and body composition analysis and is used worldwide by elite athletes and teams like the Green Bay Packers, the British Triathlon team, and is used at the US Olympic training center in Colorado Springs.
The scan is fast, highly accurate, and requires no special clothing. It takes about 10 minutes and exposes you to less radiation than a 1-hour flight.
What will I learn?
The Dexa Body Composition Analysis Scan will provide you with a comprehensive 7-page report provides you with a detailed understanding of your body composition. It includes:
- Total body fat percentage
- Total lean percentage
- Bone Density
- Muscle Symmetry
- Regional composition (i.e. How much fat, lean, and bone in arms, legs, trunk, etc.)
- Images of bone, lean, and fat tissue
