Get Your BODPOD On

Not only does The Pulse have a 2 for 1 BODPOD Promo going on right now, but we're also the people singing its praises.

Gone are the days of the scale and BMI. As technology continues to thrive, we’re fortunate enough to have access to these progressions. 

“People tend to focus on the number the scale shows when trying to lose weight, but really that won’t give you the full picture” says Personal Training Director, Leslie. The BODPOD gives you a more accurate representation of your body composition compared to the scale and is the gold standard in measuring body composition. It also allows you to compare these changes over time so you can tell whether you’re losing muscle or fat!

What is this ‘BODPOD’?

This spaceship-looking thing is where you sit as the trainer pulls your stats. Using a two-chamber system, the BODPOD measures air displaced when you sit inside it. We use this to estimate your volume and then use densitometry to calculate your percent fat mass as well as fat free mass. All of this takes place in only a couple of minutes!

What does the BODPOD measure?

-Total Body Mass: We measure your total weight beforehand to use this number in the calculations for your body composition.

-% Fat Free Mass (or lean tissue): Comprised of the nonfat components of your body: skeletal muscle, bone, and water. This is the number you want to increase when losing weight. It shows that you are adding muscle to your body.

-%Body Fat: The total amount of fat tissue in your body. Remember, your body does need some fat, but excess fat can also increase risks to your health.

-Estimated Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR): This number estimates how much energy (kcals) your body needs to survive at rest. You also get a breakdown of how many calories you need to consume depending on your daily activity level.

Want To Take Advantage of This Sale?

Visit us at the front desk of The Pulse by January 31st. Both BODPOD tests must be completed before April 30th. Only want one test? Split it with a friend, after all, sharing is caring. The price is $35 for students and $50 for community members.
