From now on, we offer BIA measurements!

Have you ever wanted to know how your body is precisely composed to understand it better? Visual changes are nice and all, but they aren’t really measurable, are they? In contrast to conventional body weight measurement using a regular scale, which only determines the overall weight, BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) assesses the actual body composition and provides additional values such as:

  • Body Fat in %
  • Body fat mass and fat-free mass.
  • Musclemass
  • Total body water.
  • Extracellular and intracellular water.
  • BMI
  • Basal metabolic rate in calories (kcal).

What does BIA mean?

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is used to determine body composition.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a scientifically validated method for determining body composition. Based on the principle of resistance measurement, the relationship between body fat, water, and muscle components is safely and quickly analyzed.

In addition to measuring body fat and muscle mass, the nutrition status of the cells, resting energy expenditure, and much more are also assessed.

Why do we take this measurement?

As a customer, you improve in various areas! Sometimes, these improvements may not be easily measurable for you. Indeed, numbers often provide more tangible insights and understanding. All the hard work and (hopefully effective training) will have an impact on the results measured in a BIA. And also on your visible goals!

To keep these goals always measurable in mind, such a measurement should be conducted at regular intervals.

Why do I need a BIA measurement?

Exactly, by doing so, you can identify areas where you are making progress and areas where improvement is needed. Your trainer can, therefore, cater even more individually to your needs, and nutrition also plays a significant role here! Your trainer is there to support you in this aspect as well, and together, you can fine-tune the small or larger adjustments to achieve success even faster.

Of course, these successes don’t happen overnight. They need time. That’s why we recommend these measurements approximately every 3 months!

Preparation and Procedure of the Measurement

  • Do not eat immediately before the measurement (do not consume any food 2-4 hours before the test).
  • The last significant fluid intake should have occurred at least 1 hour before the measurement.
  • Alcohol should be avoided for at least 24 hours before the measurement.
  • Do not drink immediately before the measurement.
  • Avoid engaging in heavily sweat-inducing activities 24 hours before the measurement.
  • Empty your bladder before the measurement.

The examination is conducted while lying down. Prior to the measurement, you lie horizontally on a bed for approximately 10 minutes. The lying phase is essential because it allows the intracellular fluid to distribute more evenly (due to gravity), resulting in a more consistent electrical resistance and, therefore, a more accurate measurement.

Using two electrodes, one attached to each wrist and ankle, a non-perceptible alternating current is passed through the body. Due to the specific conductivity of water, muscles, and fat, conclusions can be drawn about the composition of the body.
The current intensities used are safe for the body and are not perceptible.
