What It Is

Hydrostatic Weighing is the most widely used test of body density and has always been the criterion measure for other indirect measures.

Why Measure Body Composition

Weight alone is not a clear indicator of good health because it does not distinguish between pounds that come from body fat and pounds that come from lean body mass (your bones, organs and muscle).

Advantages

Knowing your numbers can help you reach your goals. Testing results include lean mass and individual resting metabolic rates, which are key to nutrition planning.

What is Hydrostatic Body Fat Testing?

Underwater weighing is based upon Archimedes Principle which states that the buoyant force on a submerged object is equal to the weight of the fluid that is displaced by the object. We can use this principle to determine a person’s percentage of body fat because the density of fat mass and fat-free mass are constant.

Lean tissue, such as bone, muscle and organs, are more dense than water, and fat tissue is less dense than water. Basically, lean mass sinks and fat floats. Therefore, a person with more body fat will weigh less underwater and be more buoyant. Someone with more muscle will weigh more underwater.

Why Should I Try Hydrostatic Body Fat Testing?

Body composition testing (rather than just stepping on your simple home scales) is the best way to find out what you are really made of!  Scholarly research shows that Hydrostatic Testing (Underwater Weighing) has become universally regarded, by industry experts, as the “Gold Standard” in body fat testing.

Whether you are looking to lose weight, gain weight, or just maintain your current weight, having a Hydrostatic Test done will provide you with a wealth of information to let you know how you’re doing.

We obtain your dry weight and wet weight (based on buoyancy) and are able to scientifically calculate your body fat as a percentage of your total weight. Your scales at home cannot tell you if your weight loss/gain is muscle or fat.  However, a Hydrostatic Test can tell you, to the ounce, what took place with your body during your weight loss/gain regiment.

Body Composition Testing Process

Our Hydrostatic water-based process is for everyone
Here is how we test body fat percentage:

1.

Initial Information

We will have an initial consultation where we take down your name, age, height, and dry weight before we begin the body fat test.

2.

Step Into Tank

For this step you will need a bathing suit, a towel and be prepared to go completely under water.

3.

Exhale & Submerge

You will exhale and completely submerge to be weighed….(You can wear a swim cap, goggles and / or ear plugs if you like).  This process is repeated at least two times to get the most accurate results. The water is chlorinated, filtered, and heated between 90 and 95 degrees Farenheit.

4.

Get Your Results

You will be provided a detailed report with an accurate measurement of your body fat percent and lean mass, a reference table showing where you are and where you should be, a calculation of your resting metabolic rate and a list of total calories you, specifically, will burn every 30 minutes of those exercises.
