If you've ever wanted to get started on a plan to make real progress, or want to get back on track, getting your body fat tested in our hydrostatic tank is a great way to naturally and precisely benchmark your fitness. Until recently, this extremely accurate method of body composition testing has only been available at a few Universities and facilities at a cost of 150.00 or more. Now, it is available to you for less than $50. We suggest testing every 90 days or as needed to so we can better assist you in using this information to track your body composition, body fat and lean mass.
Getting dunked takes just 10 minutes, and afterward, you'll get a detailed report showing:
Your fat and fat-free body mass, as percentages and in actual weight
How much fat, if any, you need to lose to achieve your desired body composition
How many calories per day you burn without exercising—unique to you
How many calories you burn from different exercises—again, specifically for your body
Where you are on a scale of ideal body fat for your age and gender
Your history, if you've been tested before
IF YOU ARE A RETEST, make sure to purchase the retest ticket. If you purchase the retest ticket, and you are not a re-test, you will be charged the difference prior to testing on the date of test.
You'll need to bring a swimsuit and a towel. Eating a large meal within 2 hours before the test may affect your results by up to 1.5%, but no more. Working out and drinking water is okay. You should try to use the restroom and take a shower if possible. We have a private dressing room on board. Also, please do not have large amounts of makeup, or hair gel on when taking the test. If so please rinse off before the test. The water is heated to between 90 and 95 degrees, depending on the season. The water is also chemically treated for cleanliness to meet all local swimming pool and hot tub requirements of the local health department. We also replace the water every night. A trained technician will be with you every second of the test. You will have privacy and confidentiality during the entire test. You may have a friend in the clinic at the same time watching if you wish. After the test, you will receive a 4-page printout, which shows you where you are, where you should be, and what it will take to get there. You will have a realistic baseline to establish your fitness goals. For your comfort the lab is air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter.
