Our goal is to help you achieve optimal body composition for health and longevity, thereby enhancing your overall wellness. We do this through a detailed analysis of your body composition and personalized strategies that will have the most impact for you.
Body composition provides a more comprehensive perspective on health than weight or BMI alone. It includes aspects like body fat percentage, muscle mass, bone mineral density, and visceral fat. Accurate measurement of these factors allows for precise health assessments and interventions.
Optimizing body composition can mean different things, for some, weight reduction, for others improving their strength-to-mass ratio, locomotive efficiency, or appearance.
We use DEXA scans for body composition analysis. The Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) technique uses low energy X-rays to precisely measure fat mass, muscle mass, bone mineral density, percent body fat, and visceral adipose tissue providing a comprehensive view of your body composition.
Your personalized profile serves as a roadmap, pointing out potential areas of concern and serving as the basis for targeted health strategies. We may recommend body composition interventions like:
- Nutritional interventions focusing on adequate protein intake, healthy fats, and nutrient-dense complex carbohydrates.
- Strength training to build lean muscle mass and improve bone mineral density.
- Aerobic exercise to improve cardiovascular function and VO2 max.
- High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to target visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and improve aerobic fitness.
- Supplementation like protein powder, creatine, fish oil, vitamins, and minerals to augment your diet.
We tailor treatment recommendations based on unique needs and circumstances. These personalized plans aim to optimize body composition, reduce disease risks, and boost overall health, fitness, and well-being.
At the conclusion of this module, you will have a definitive measurement of your body composition with an advanced scan and tools to optimize this key factor in overall health and wellness.
