Body Comp Facilities

I’m trying to find a local place where I can get a professional body composition exam done. Anybody have some ideas as to where I can look??

Professional is all up to the tech.

But look at area universities or hospitals that offer this service.

Even ymca’s and health clubs may. How accurate is iffy, but if you get tested consistantly, at least you may be able to show progress/trend

What are looking for? hydrostatic weighing? DEXA? Or will electrical impedence or a 7-point caliper test by a professional do? If it’s that latter, just check the local gyms. Most gyms will test either using electrical impedence or calipers.

thanks for the help. found a place with a “bod pod”.
