Assessments

Assessments

Before you begin, it is important to know where you stand. Our evaluations are a keen indicator to guide and shape your stay, counting on the latest technology and in-house talent to achieve the most accurate analysis and results.

Body Composition and Metabolism Analysis

Utilising state-of-the-art equipment in order to measure your body composition and resting metabolism, the bioelectrical impedance is an extremely reliable method for body composition analysis. It is fast, consistent, accurate and easy to use. More than weight or body fat percentage levels provided by ordinary scales or calipers, this analysis provides a detailed body scan - weight, body fat percentage, fat mass, fat-free mass, resting metabolism, and hydration levels - all without the inconvenience of more intrusive traditional measurement methods. A Body Composition Analysis shows changes when the scale doesn’t, leading to a major increase in motivation during the weight-loss process.
