Utilize InBody Scans to Help Make Smart Decisions about Training

In today's fast-paced world where health and fitness dominate our lifestyles, there are numerous ways to keep track of our progress. One such innovative method is the InBody scan. But what exactly is an InBody scan and why do all of the personal trainers here at Fitness 19 use them? 

An InBody scan is an accurate, easy, and quick way to get a detailed body composition analysis. Using several different measurement techniques, these scanners are able to accurately measure various aspects of body composition like muscle mass, body fat percentage, weight, water content, and visceral fat. 

Unlike traditional methods like weigh-ins or body mass index (BMI) calculations, an InBody scan goes beyond the surface level to provide a detailed analysis of one's body composition. 

This technology has gained popularity among fitness enthusiasts, healthcare professionals, and athletes due to its accuracy and ability to provide personalized information necessary for achieving individual fitness goals.

Whether it's for weight loss, muscle gain, or maintaining a healthy lifestyle, an InBody scan allows individuals to track their progress, observe changes in their body composition, and fine-tune their fitness routines accordingly. With its user-friendly interface and quick results, an InBody scan proves to be an invaluable tool in the pursuit of optimal health and fitness. 

How Does an InBody Scan Work?

An InBody uses a technology called bioelectrical impedance analysis, which measures the resistance of electrical currents as they pass through different types of soft tissues and fluids in the body. During the scan, you’ll stand barefoot on a specialized scale that sends a low-intensity electrical current through your body. The currents travel through your muscles, fat, and water, providing data on your body’s composition.

The InBody machine then calculates various parameters such as body fat percentage, muscle mass, water weight, and visceral fat levels.

The entire process usually takes less than a minute and the results are displayed on a computer screen. InBody scans are often used by nutritionists, fitness trainers, and healthcare professionals to track changes in body composition over time, assess the effectiveness of diet and exercise programs, and identify potential health risks associated with imbalances in body composition. 

What Does an Inbody Scan Tell You?

After completing your InBody scan you'll get a specialized body composition analysis that provides detailed information about the amount and distribution of fat, muscle, and water in your body. This non-invasive test uses bioelectrical impedance to provide accurate measurements.

An InBody scan provides a comprehensive overview of your overall health and fitness, including your body fat percentage, muscle mass, visceral fat levels, and basal metabolic rate. This information is crucial for creating personalized fitness and nutrition plans.

By knowing your body composition, you can set realistic goals and track your progress more effectively. The scan also allows you to identify any imbalances or areas that need improvement, such as muscle imbalances or excess body fat. 

Fitness 19 and InBody Scans

At Fitness 19, we love the data and insights that the InBody scan provides our members. When you tour one of our gyms or join as a new member, you’ll receive a complimentary scan to kickstart your fitness journey. 

Our premium membership options and Personal Training packages include unlimited access to the Inbody Scan machines for those seeking better progress tracking.

By regularly checking your body composition with the InBody scan, we can track your progress accurately and make necessary adjustments to your fitness and nutrition plan. It helps us understand your body's unique composition, allowing us to tailor our training programs to your specific needs and goals.

In weight loss settings, it is common for the number on the scale to fluctuate day to day. Often the first few weeks you won't see much change on the scale, but the InBody will allow you to see changes in composition. While the number on the scale might be changing slowly, a scan will show muscle being built and fat is lost. This results in that firm, tone look that many are after.

If your fitness goals include getting stronger and building muscle, the slow grind can be reinforced by seeing your muscle mass numbers increase! This can help keep you motivated and focused on continual improvement. It may also give you clues to muscle groups that are lagging behind others, allowing you to tailor your program in a meaningful way. 

Regardless of your goals, we believe that data is powerful, and the more information we have about your body, the more effectively we can guide you toward your goals. The InBody scan is just one of the tools we use to provide you with the best possible fitness experience.


With our commitment to be A Gym Built for You a simple scale wasn't good enough, so Fitness 19 welcomes all new members to try out a scan.

It's quick, non-invasive, and provides us with valuable information that will help you target and track your health and fitness goals, both inside and outside the gym. If you want help to hit those goals, the InBody scan will help us design an individualized plan to help you achieve your fitness goals. Let's work together to get you the results you desire.
