Indianapolis, IN, February 01, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The National Institute for Fitness and Sport (NIFS)
challenges Hoosiers to “Know Your Healthy Weight" beginning February 1-15, 2013.
Another New Year has come and gone. Are you still stuck at point “A” in your fitness goals? Now is the
time to make changes and try a new approach. NIFS recommends “The Mork Experience.” If you weren't
alive to see the show, or want to relive it, visit http://ow.ly/gWiv1 .
Although you won't fly through space or spend more than a couple minutes inside this egg, you'll come
out knowing a lot more about yourself. In fact, you'll know the breakdown of your body composition:
body fat; lean mass, etc. Armed with this knowledge, you can set realistic, measurable goals and actually
see the results as you go.
Unless you have been able to work with certified fitness professionals you may not know that there are
several different types of fitness assessments and screenings, but the Bod Pod is the rock star of them all.
Take a look at what a Bod Pod test can tell you:
- What percentage of your body weight is lean body mass. Better known as the “good weight” your
muscles, bones and organs actually effect the number on the scale, by increasing your muscle mass you
can actually burn more calories.
- Percentage of body fat. Get ready; it may not be as bad as you thought.
- Body age. You may be 30 but is your body going on 45? Your body age is important to show risk
factors you may experience if you don't make some changes.
- BOD POD measurements can help you track changes and the success of your nutrition and/or exercise
- Composition tests are excellent indicators of overall health
- Monitor for obesity
- Evaluate risk factors for major diseases like stroke and diabetes
- Used to evaluate how to help you lose or gain body fat safely
- Will help you fine tune your athletic performance/workouts for better results
NIFS member Stephanie Whittaker shares her Bod Pod experience:
“I was so pleased that my weight lost goals for September had been met, but my Bod Pod results revealed
that nearly half of that loss was lean muscle mass! Complete frustration and disappointment- I quickly
shifted gears and took a critical look at my diet and exercise regimen; knowing that if I didn't make some
changes, I would continue to get the same results. I fine-tuned how and when I was fueling my body and
modified my workout regimen to incorporate more weight lifting.
Sticking to the plan (no matter what) paid off. My January Bod Pod results reflected continued fat loss
and a full recovery of the 4 lb of lean muscle mass that I had lost in September. Bod Pod results are key to
navigating my fitness strategy and goal setting.”
