Body composition analysis measures the amount of fat versus lean muscle tissue as a percentage of an athlete's total weight.
The BOD POD® uses air displacement to measure body composition. You will sit very still in the BOD POD® wearing a swimsuit or tight workout clothing and a swim cap (the swim cap is provided). The BOD POD® measures how much air you displace and uses formulas to determine how much lean mass and fat mass your body contains. The body fat percentage is a ratio of body fat to total body weight.
A body composition analysis is $50 a la carte. The IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute also offers sport-specific packages to meet the needs of all athletes.
