My Bod Pod Assessment

Earlier this month I had the great priviledge of receiving a Body Composition Tracking System Analysis!

What is this, you ask? Well, let me explain.

A friend introdced me to the Schofield Barrack’s Army Wellness Center (AWC). It is a center servicing active duty, reserve and national guard soldiers, their dependents, military retirees and Department of Defense civilians. All their services are free! This is something to really take advantage of if you are involved with the military and qualify for their services.

I went in and scheduled a Body Composition assessment. This is a 30 minute appointment that involves a safe, non-invasive, body composition test to measure fat and fat free mass using air displacement. This is done using a Bod Pod- pictured above! If you’re claustrophobic, you may have a little struggle at first but it’s worth it! You sit in the pod and have to be still for like 30 seconds at a time once they close the door. You don’t feel ANYTHING and only hear some “whooshing” sounds while it is active. Really fast and efficient.

A Bod Pod is a computerized, egg-shaped chamber. Using the same whole-body measurement principle as underwater weighing, the Bod Pod measures your mass and volume, from which your whole-body density is determined. Using this data, body fat and lean muscle mass can then be calculated. Want to know my results?

My body mass was 138 lbs. Out of this, my fat mass was 36 lbs, which is 26.3%. This places me in the “Moderately Lean” rating, which is considered generally acceptable for good health.

But me being me, I want to be in the “Lean” body rating. This is lower body fat levels than many people, and is generally excellent for health and longevity! 

With these results in mind I can design a food and workout regimen to reach my health and fitness goals! I highly recommend anyone qualified to receive this service at your local AWC. You’ll know where you stand, what direction to go in and can re-test every 3-6 months to track your progress and results! If you don’t qualify for AWC services, look up Bod Pod services near you. It will probably be costly but I think it would be worth every penny!

Thanks for reading! Please contact me if you have any questions about the Bod Pod, my results or how I can help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
