discover the BOD POD
Body fat testing with the BOD POD offers many advantages over other methods commonly seen in health clubs and spas. Using air-displacement instead of water allows for fast, accurate and reliable testing that can be repeated over and over when monitoring changes in body fat and muscle mass. Underwater weighing had long been the gold standard measurement technique, but it was difficult for the participant and the equipment required very skilled operators. The BOD POD makes it easy on the participant and easy on the technician regardless of whether you are in an elite level training environment or a recreational fitness studio..
