Are you working hard in the gym but not seeing the results you want? The right information can be an ideal tool for maintaining your motivation and increasing progress.
One of the best ways to obtain accurate information on your health is with an Evolt Body Scan, a non-invasive, award-winning body composition scan. Here, we’ll look at the benefits of the Evolt Body Scan, how it works, and how it can help you move closer to your health and wellness goals.
1. It Detects Bad Fat
Body scans can measure total body water, mineral intake, subcutaneous fat mass, skeletal muscle mass, and visceral fat levels. Visceral fat — known as bad fat — is a deep abdominal fat that wraps around the organs. This type of fat has been linked to an increased risk for a variety of health issues.
If your body scan detects unhealthy fat levels, it may be an important reality check that can get you motivated to do what it takes to get your levels back to a healthy range.
2. The Evolt 360 Body Scan Is Fast and Easy
An Evolt 360 Body Scan is a fast, easy, even relaxing way to get closer to your health and fitness goals. In a matter of minutes, you can obtain a vast array of information about your health.
A first visit includes a consultation and generally takes about an hour. Subsequent scans only take a few minutes, with the entire appointment able to be completed in less than half an hour.
3. It Reveals Far More Than Your BMI
BMI (body mass index) is a popular measurement based on the height and weight of an individual. This generic, one-size-fits-all approach does not take proportions of fat, muscle, and bone into consideration, making it an unreliable measurement.
The body scan accurately measures body composition — along with the total amount of bone, fat, and muscle in the body — to analyse the lean-mass index (LMI) and fat mass index (FMI). These units of measurements are far more accurate than BMI alone and also more important for your health.
4. It Does Not Require You To Strip Down
Whereas traditional body measurements relied on a scale, tape measure, and callipers — and often meant stripping down to get the most accurate measurements — body scans can be completed right in your light activewear. Aside from taking off your shoes and socks, body scans can still provide an accurate reading
Body scanners like the Evolt 360 only require you to wear light activewear before stepping on without shoes or socks. Given today’s advancements in technology, clothing doesn’t add to your mass and won’t impact your body composition results.
5. It Can Help Determine Your Ideal Nutrition
The body depends on macronutrients — fats, carbohydrates, and protein — to function. A body scanner such as the Evolt 360 is capable of pinpointing the ideal macronutrient profile for you.
Other methods rely on overall weight, body type, and calculations to attempt to determine macronutrient profiles. These methods are subject to human error. Body scans are a fast, effective way to accurately determine the ideal macronutrient intake for an individual rather than a one size fits all approach.
6. It Can Maximise Your Training Efforts
Your Evolt Body Scan results can help you determine your exact fat loss or muscle gain targets to achieve ideal health. With measurements that are scientifically validated, a body scan is an accurate way to assess your overall results, make adjustments to your training program, or update your macronutrient profile.
7. It Provides Accurate Before and After Results
Body scans are one of the most accurate ways to keep track of your results. Your first body scan will provide you with a clear baseline and give you something to track and compare your results against as you progress.
If you complete follow-up scans at the recommended 8-week intervals, you can continually monitor your results and adjust your training program accordingly. This is an ideal way to accurately measure your progress, determine new goals you want to set, and pinpoint any areas you need to focus on.
8. The Evolt 360 Body Scan Is Non-Invasive
The Evolt 360 Body Scan is painless, easy, and non-invasive. Aside from requiring users to fast for four hours beforehand, the body scan itself is quick and requires no other preparation.
It should not be used by pregnant women, individuals who take medications that affect water retention, or individuals with a significant amount of metal in their bodies. Otherwise, it is considered a safe option for obtaining accurate health and fitness measurements.
9. You Can Compare Results With Other Evolt 360 Users
Want to see how your results stack up to other Body Scan customers? There is an extensive database where you can analyse your measurements and compare your results.
This is a useful way to see where your numbers fall and how far off your results are from above or below average. Comparing your measurements to other users can be especially beneficial if you are competitive by nature. Seeing exactly how much muscle you need to gain or how much fat you need to lose can be excellent motivation.
10. Body Scans Are Used By Professionals
Body scans are often used by professional sports teams to ensure their players are in peak shape. This means you can utilise the same innovative technology that elite sports teams rely on.
