Introducing the DexaFit App
Our DEXA body compositions scans are collated into a user friendly app and report that translate your results in easy to understand health status. As body composition, and where your store fat are key indicators of long term health, your compositional report will stratify you into health risk categories making it easy to help set goals and provide necessary focus to lifestyle modifications.
What is a DEXA Scan?
DEXA technology is the gold standard in body composition measurement. It tracks changes in muscle mass and body fat through low dose X-ray technology, generating a detailed report for everyone.
It is considered one of the most accurate tests you could do to determine body fat and muscle distribution. Results can be used to track not only changes in weight but how much fat you are losing/gaining compared to your total muscle mass. It also provides readings of visceral fat which tells you how much fat you are carrying around your organs. This is a reliable indicator for increased risk of chronic disease.
With accurate information in hand, individualized training programs and eating plans can be developed, driving clients closer than ever to good health and wellbeing.
Live a healthier life without all the guessing.
This is the first step in taking control of your health. Our team of physicians, health care practitioners and Clinical Exercise Physiologist will work together with you to address health risks before they advance.
A DEXA scan focuses on YOUR body composition and YOUR specific body type. Through strategically timed or periodic testing, we can monitor what is working and what isn’t.
