An accurate reading of your current body weight
Body Fat %:
Both too little and too much body fat are unhealthy for your body. This reading gives you the incentive to make dietary changes if necessary.
Total Body Water %:
Being well hydrated helps concentration levels, sports performance and general wellbeing.
Your muscle mass acts as an engine to consume calories, therefore it is important that muscle mass is maintained when trying to lose weight. It is equally important to maintain muscle mass for performing well when exercising.
This tells you what body type you have and looks at overall fat, muscle and fluid levels. For example, you might be a healthy weight but actually have too much fat and too little muscle mass.
Bone Mineral Mass:
This can be monitored over the long term to ensure that bone health is being maintained and osteoporosis risk minimised.
Basal Metabolic Rate:
The daily minimum level of energy or calories your body requires when at rest. This accounts for about 70% of your daily calorie requirement. This can be used as a starting point for a diet plan.
Body Mass Index:
A standardised ratio of weight to height, used as a general indicator of health.
A healthy level of visceral fat (fat stored around the abdomen) directly reduces the risk of certain diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure and may delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
