The Bod Pod’s popularity among professionals in all areas of health is growing rapidly.
It’s used by collegiate and professional sports teams to track athletes’ training progress.
It’s used by the Mayo Clinic to monitor the health of patients.
It’s even made prime time appearances on “The Biggest Loser” where it’s used to track contestant’s fat loss.
So why has the Bod Pod become so popular? Because it can reveal a lot about someone in a very short amount of time. The Bod Pod can tell us your fat mass, lean mass, how much fat you’re losing, how much muscle you’re gaining, how many calories you should be consuming, and what your risk is for developing obesity-related diseases.
Compared to other body fat testing methods, the Bod Pod body fat test is preferred for the following reasons:
- It’s safe. The Bod Pod doesn’t use x-rays, water submersion, electrical current, or painful pinching, and it’s even safe for children. In fact, there is a neonatal Bod Pod called the Pea Pod that is used for newborn babies and infants.
- It’s easy. You don’t have to hold your breath underwater and the Bod Pod technician doesn’t have to have years of experience to provide an accurate assessment. You just sit in the machine, relax, breath normally, and let the Bod Pod do all the work!
- It’s fast. A Bod Pod test takes about 10 minutes.
- It’s affordable. Compared to DEXA and underwater weighing, the Bod Pod is extremely affordable.
The Bod Pod is the gold standard in body fat testing. In just 15 minutes, you can discover your fat mass, fat free mass, resting metabolic rate, estimated calorie requirements, and current health status. Where the Bod Pod really shines is in its ability to accurately track changes in these measurements over time. This allows you to make the necessary changes to your diet and training programs to stay on track and keep making progress.
