At Better Gym North Greenwich we are committed to helping you on your journey to a happier, more healthy lifestyle.
So, with that in mind, we’ve teamed up with Boditrax to bring their state of the art body composition and activity tracking platform to Better Gym, North Greenwich, to put you in the control of the future of your fitness.
Boditrax will help you understand more about your body, where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and what you can do to improve your health, fitness, and general wellbeing.
Often when people first come to a gym they have goals to lose weight or build muscle or most likely they just want to be healthier, while these are all great starting points, what does that actually mean or your body?
Well now, with the help of the Boditrax composition and movement tracking scales you can find out and give your workout real focus and get meaningful results.
Broken down into 3 key area you can start to understand your body’s make-up and needs
Here’s your key stats which the machine will begin to benchmark you against, including:
Now we really get under your skin and see what you’re made of
The true story of how you’re currently shaping up
Minimum level of calories (energy) your body needs to function effectively. The body uses about 70% of the calories you consume to run all your major organs and functions such as the nervous, respiratory and circulatory making this number quite important.
This identifies your body’s ability to burn the fuel you take on board on a daily basis
Show the amount of muscle in the body
Visceral fat is the fat that sits around your vital organs, in your internal abdominal cavity and generally increases with age. Having low VFR is believed to reduce the risk of diseases such as heart disease, blood pressure and the onset of Type 2 Diabetes.
The percentage you are away from your ideal weight, as calculated for your BMI
Benchmarking from your BMR, the machine identifies the most common age of person with your stats. If it’s higher than your actual age increased exercise will build healthy muscle tissue and reduce your age.
In just 30 seconds you'll have more data about yourself than you ever knew possible so the next question is what do you do with your results? It's great having all this information but unless you know what to do with it is just information.
The body map will show you exactly where things like fat is higher or muscle is lower. Using this information you can select the right programmes from the MyWellness apps.
So now you know what areas to focus on and what need to reduce or increase it's time to set yourself some goals.
Setting yourself realistic goals will start to give your training focus. Boditrax goal setting provides a multi diamentional opportunity to target many different elements. It's important to remember this is about improving your whole health so your goals might be to increase some measures while reduce others but don't worry, if you're not sure where to start our Fitness Instructors and Personal Trainers are on hand to help.
So having goals is great but being able to track that you're heading in the right direction is what's going to give you the motivation to carry on. Week by week, as you get your readings the system will plot them against your previous readings.
Your Body Measurements talks directly to our Boditrax body configuration analysis unit at Better Gym, North Greenwich. Through its electro-conducting body analysing system your BMI and current weight readings will be accessible from anywhere, not just the terminal where you weighed yourself. MyWellness Cloud also provides you with a scale to see how your measurements and progress match up to the rest of our members on our Health Scale
