Bod Pod and InBody - Body Composition Assessment
The Bod Pod uses the concept of air displacement to measure body fat %. Appointments are for 30 minute sessions, though actual time spent in the Bod Pod is about five minutes.

Testing Requirements: No eating, drinking or exercising 2 hours prior to appointment. Must wear compression shorts, swimsuit, spandex type shorts or sports bra, etc.
To sign up for a bod pod assessment please contact us at 846-1186 or 846-1483.

We also have a portable body composition device, the InBody 270. We can test 12 people/hour using this device. If you are interested in us bringing the InBody to your place of work for testing, contact us at 846-1186 or 846-1483. Inbody testing can be conducted in a public area, and you can wear standard PT attire (minus shoes and socks) for the test.

Nutrition Appointments
What you eat daily will impact your performance, concentration, energy, weight, and overall health.  If you are having trouble figuring out how to incorporate a healthy diet into your lifestyle we can help by putting together a nutrition plan to meet your needs.  For a one-on-one appointment with the dietitian please call 846-1483. 

Exercise Prescriptions
Are you having trouble losing weight, passing your PT test, or staying injury free?  Are you interested in starting an exercise program, but are unsure of where to begin? We can write personalized exercise prescriptions which will help you meet your goals. For a one-on-one appointment, call 846-1186,
