The Bod Pod

The centerpiece of the clinic is the Bod Pod: a highly specialized piece of equipment used to measure body composition. With precise, whole-body capabilities, it provides clients with a much more detailed picture of body composition compared with, for example, the traditional scale. By reading data such as fat percentage, total fat mass and lung volume, the Bod Pod provides detailed information about how activity and eating habits affect body composition.
