Body Technologies was founded in 1996 by fitness enthusiast and entrepreneur Orson (O. A.) Kinney. The company’s mission simply was to apply the advances in exercise science into main-stream personal training programs.

Having earned a degree in exercise science and spending his entire collegiate career using strength and conditioning strategies to enhance his baseball skill set, Kinney was committed to using technology to advance his cause.

Kinney’s new strategies were inspired by long-time recognized weight lifting programs along with innovative scientifically sound approaches. This included using heart rate monitors, advanced body fat measurement techniques, and oxygen consumption measurement. Simply put these programs were what you’d find in the most advanced exercise science labs in the country.
