Why get tested? What you don't know CAN hurt you.

by Joette Gdovin, PhD, MPA, USAT & RRCA Certified Coach

Many people think "I don't need a test to tell me I am out of shape, wait until I get more fit, and then I will do a BOD POD or metabolic rate test".

The fact is - knowing where you are now is essential to making improvements in your nutrition and exercise programs.

Does this sound like you? You have been dieting and exercising yet you can't seem to lose any weight.

Many people visit the lab with the same issue. They want advice on training and nutrition - but really what they need are the facts - in this situation I recommend a BOD POD Body Composition test and a Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test.

WHY? A RMR test will tell you how many calories you burn at rest. In working with clients I find that many people are restricting their calories to 'diet' and expect to lose weight. If they are dieting in addition to exercising, then we often find that their resting metabolic rate is higher than they expect - this causes the opposite of the intended effect. Your RMR will tell you how many calories you need, and often, when you increase your calories (of the right foods) consistent with your RMR, you will start to shed pounds! It is amazing.

Additionally, the Body Composition test will tell you your lean and fat mass. We find that many people think they are 'fat' and in reality, when they do the BOD POD, they learn that they have a lot of lean or muscle mass and that they may not want to shed pounds but work to switch fat into lean. This test is also an amazing motivator! People report that "they know they need to lose weight", but seeing the results, knowing your true lean and fat mass, are numbers - not unlike when you get your cholesterol or blood sugar tested - that motivate you to take that important step to better health!

Consider getting a baseline RMR and BOD POD test and improve your health!
