Fitnescity Introduces Wellness and Performance Assessments

Once reserved to Olympic teams and research labs, these new metabolic, fitness and body composition assessment technologies are now available to you in the heart of New York City.

 

We partnered with premier wellness and sports clinics to make these assessments accessible to everyone.

 

1- Measure Your Body Fat

 

Body Composition: Fat Mass vs. Fat-Free Mass:

Body Composition analysis helps you measure body fat percentage and soft lean mass. It is crucial for knowing whether you're losing fat or muscle.

The BOD POD is the gold standard for measuring the percentage of fat vs. lean tissue in a body. The BOD POD uses patented air displacement technology to quickly and accurately measure a person's body composition. It is much more reliable than bio-impedence scales (e.g. bathroom scales like Fitbit), which tend to give results with as much as 8-10% uncertainty.

Other tools for measuring body composition include InBody Body Composition Analyzers, DEXA scans, 3D body scanners (see below) and calipers. These tools can give you a detailed overview of your body fat measurements by body part.

2- Know Your Metabolism

Resting Metabolic Rate Assessment

 

Ever wondered why some people consume a lot of calories and don't necessarily gain that much weight? That's what some people refer to as "fast metabolism." 

The good news is that you can actually change your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR), or the rate at which your body burns energy when it is at complete rest, with proper training and nutrition.

Measuring your RMR, or the number of calories your body actually needs in a single day in order to perform basic functions like breathing and circulation, can help you understand how your metabolism is changing. Most importantly, you will be able to know (rather than guess) how many calories you actually need. This is essential for effective weight / body fat loss.

3- See How Your Body Is Changing

3D Body Scanning

 

Rather than rely on numerical data, you can now see how your body shape is changing over time. 3D body scanning not only shows how the weight is distributed in the body, but it also enables to automatically extract measurements for any body part. This includes waist circumference, hips and waist-to-hip ratio, legs, arms, etc.

4- Measure Your Fitness

VO2 Max Test

 

VO2 max measures your body’s ability to consume oxygen. It helps you understand your level of fitness (recommended for runners / cyclists).

Many people are inefficient exercisers, with little understanding of what heart rate, intensity or duration would best help them reach their specific goals such as fat burning, endurance training, or cardio conditioning.

An initial VO₂ Max test can help you clarify the precise target heart rates that will enable you specifically to exercise more effectively, with less fatigue and fewer injuries. Periodic retesting will give you motivating feedback as your fitness program progresses.

5- Predict and Avoid Injury

Functional Movement Screen (coming soon)

There's nothing worse than starting a training program and having to stop because of back, knee or shoulder pain (or injury!)

There are a few ways in which you can avoid that: 

  • Posture and Movement Analysis

PostureScreen is a tool that can help you assesses posture and movement in order to prevent injury. The app uses two pictures, one from the front and one from the side, in order to assess your posture. The software enables the app to measure angles and distances from anatomical points, thus identifying posture displacements and areas susceptible to injury.

  • Functional Movement (FMS)Screen

Movement dictates the way we live -- all day, every day.  FMS Screening is essentially a quick and easy way to screen fundamental movement before you train it. If you train with a baseline of a poor quality of movement, the risk for injury is significantly increased. If, however, you correct baseline movement in a methodical corrective exercise strategy prior to advancing performance training, the risk of injury is significantly reduced.
