Starting today we are offering Body Fat % testing with the BodyMetrix system. The BodyMetrix System combines a hand-held ultrasound wand with innovative software to accurately and consistently assess and monitor your body composition. With this technology you can actually scan, see, and track fat loss and muscle gain. Before the BodyMetrix System, the only way to accurately track fat loss and muscle gain was with large and expensive x-ray CT and MRI machines.
The BodyMetrix System offers the same professional-grade ultrasound technology used by elite athletes and trainers. This high tech, cutting edge device allows you to quickly, easily and accurately make assessments. The BodyMetrix System does all this without embarrassing or painful pinching. Assessments take only minutes and are not affected by hydration, exercise level or caffeine intake.
The BodyMetrix works by using ultrasound. When ultrasound waves penetrate tissue, reflections occur at different tissue boundaries. For example, there are strong ultrasound reflections at fat-muscle and muscle-bone. Ultrasound allows the BodyMetrix to detect the true fat thickness at each measurement point. By making measurements at multiple points on the body an accurate body fat % can be determined.
Also, ultrasound measurements are not affected by hydration, exercise level, and caffeine intake, therefore providing consistent results.
You can get one testing done for $20 or you can get three testings for $50. We can schedule your testings monthly or every other month. To schedule your testing shoot us an email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 409-651-5679. It should take around 10 minutes so this can easily be done before or after class. If you signed up for the Paleo Challenge you can get tested immediately and then again after the challenge ends July 9 for only $25. If any of your friends or family who are not members of CrossFit Beaumont or CrossFit Mid-County would like to get tested the cost is $30 per session.
