Body Fat Test of SouthWest Florida



Click here for video demonstration:


You need to bring a swimsuit and a towel.  No T-shirts, leotards or thongs should be worn.  Eating within 2 hours before the test may affect your results by up to 1 1/2%, but no more.  Therefore, we advise you not to eat within two hours before the test.  Working out and drinking water is okay.  You should try to use the restroom and take a shower if possible.  Also, please do not have large amounts of makeup, or hair gel on when taking the test.


The water is heated to between 89 and 94 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, which only takes 10 minutes.  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.


We have a private dressing room on board.  For your comfort the lab is air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter.
