InBody Composition Analyzer 

What is InBody Composition Analyzer?

The InBody composition analyzer provides accurate and precise fat, muscle, and water analysis in less than 60 seconds. It’s is more accurate than fat calipers, circumference measurements, and handheld body composition analysis devices— and is more affordable than underwater weighing.

What is the difference between InBody Composition Analyzer and regular scale?

InBody analyzer helps you understand your balance between muscle, fat and water. Health cannot be defined by the number on the scale. If you measure yourself at home tomorrow and see you lost two pounds, are you happy? Did you lose two pounds of muscle? Water? Fat? Every time you step on the InBody, you will receive a full page print out of the results and be able to track your progress over time. 

What to expect?

AKTeam members will work with you to help you understand your readings and tailor programs to help you meet your goals. Readings include:

  • Body fat and muscle mass levels
  • How much lean mass is in each segment of the body, which identifies which muscles groups are developing and which ones need improvement
  • Basal Metabolic Rate, or the minimum calories burned at rest each day
  • Body Composition History graph

How do I prepare for the test?

  • Test BEFORE your workout
  • Hydrate well the day before
  • Remove all jewelry, socks, pantyhose, shoes
  • Avoid scheduling tests if you are pregnant or menstruating
  • Avoid drinking caffeine the day of your test, alcohol 24 hours before & eating 3-4 hours before testing
  • Use the bathroom before testing
  • Test BEFORE exercising, hot shower or sauna
  • If testing in the winter, warm yourself up 20 min (room temperature)
  • Preferred test times in the morning

Infrared Sauna

What is infrared therapy? 

Infrared therapy uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light absorbed by the surface of the skin.

What are the benefits of infrared therapy?

The low temperature of the sauna uses heat therapy to help calm and restore the body and mind.

What about the temperature?

The temperature for a traditional sauna typically ranges between 150 and 185º F whereas infrared temperature is lower.

The temperature for a far-infrared sauna is usually set between 105 and 130º F; however, unlike the traditional sauna, the goal in and IR room is not to achieve a high temperature. Instead, in a far-infrared room, the goal is for the emitters to remain active because infrared energy is only being emitted (therefore providing the benefit of the deep penetrating infrared heat) when the emitters are on. Because of this, the temperature difference is almost irrelevant, since profuse sweating results in both sauna types, but the method of heating the body is different. In an IR sauna the bather will feel hot and will sweat profusely, but at much lower temperatures, allowing the bather to stay inside the sauna longer to feel the full benefits.
