F.A.Q’s

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Basically, the pod measures a pressure response to volume changes within its walls. It’s as simple as that. And all within a matter of minutes! The results give you a personal body composition breakdown (think body fat percentage and lean muscle mass).

WHAT IS A BOD POD?

Consider this capsule-shaped machine the gold standard of body metrics. Take a seat inside and, in just a matter of minutes, it will estimate your fat mass, lean body mass, body fat percentage, resting metabolic rate and total energy expenditure. Non-invasive and accurate to within 2% of your actual body fat percentage, it’s pretty much one of the coolest ways you can analyze yourself.

HOW DO I PREP FOR MY TEST?

Please do not eat, drink, or exercise 2 hours prior to the test.  Wear minimal, form-fitting clothing.
– Men: Thin fabric shorts, lycra/spandex-type swimsuit or single-layer compression bike-style shorts
– Women: Lycra/spandex-type swimsuit or bike-style shorts and sports bra (no wire or padding)
Do not apply any lotions or skin creams prior to your test.

WHY WILL YOU LOVE IT?

Aside from telling you just how much of your weight is fat mass and lean body mass, the pod can dole out plenty of other helpful info. Ever wonder how many calories you burn simply “at rest” while watching Netflix? That number can determine your fitness regime, help you tailor your eating habits and figure out just how much exercise you really need for your #goals. With monthly reports that hold you to your words, you can better manage your plan.
