Bod Pod Testing

The BOD POD is the safest, and most accurate method of measuring body composition

With the BOD POD, you’ll experience none of the risks and discomfort associated with underwater submersion, x-rays, electrical current, and pinching with calipers. During testing, you just sit inside the BOD POD for less than 4 minutes.

  • An accurate breakdown of your body's fat % vs. non-fat (lean mass) %
  • A snapshot of where your %’s stand based on national health standards
  • Estimated Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR): The amount of caloric energy expended daily at rest.
  • Total Energy Expenditure (TEE): RMR + estimated caloric energy expended daily based on daily activity level.
  • Your Optimal Caloric Intake per Day
  • A Progress Report with historical results data
Body Measurement

You can use this information to:

  • Get a baseline measurement of current body composition
  • Make informed choices for new diet and nutrition lifestyles
  • Monitor and track the progress of your fitness programming

Since its introduction in 1995, the BOD POD has steadily gained favor by body composition researchers and testers. This is mainly attributed to the non-invasive test procedure and less chance for human error than other testing methods.

The unique egg-shape of the BOD POD is designed to accommodate a wide variety of human shapes and sizes. The BOD POD is used routinely by NFL teams, sumo wrestlers, and people weighing up to 500+ lbs. Because it’s so simple to use, the BOD POD is ideal for assessing the body composition of children, the elderly, hospital patients, and those with special needs.

Step 2:
Test Preparation

  • Do not eat or drink anything for at least 2 hours prior to your test.
  • Do not exercise 2 hours before your test. Limit activity prior to your visit. Exercise prior to your test can elevate your breathing and body temperature which may interfere with your test results.
  • Schedule subsequent visits under the same conditions (time of day, hydration levels, clothing).
Step 3:

  1. The test takes about 15 minutes to complete from start to finish
  2. Your mass will be measured by the scale.
  3. You will then sit in the BOD POD where your volume will be measured. Not to worry, nothing is required of you at this point except to sit still and breathe normally.
  4. Your actual scan will be complete in just under 5 minutes.
  5. While you’re changing back into your clothes we will print your results.
Step 4: Results Review

If you've taken a test with us before, your previous test results are stored in our system and used to chart your progress in each of these key areas:
  • Certified Body Weight
  • Body Fat %
  • Total Lean Body Mass
  • Resting Metabolic Rate
  • Total Energy Expenditure

If this is the first time you’ve taken a test with us, you’ll get all the same information – just minus the historical comparison to previous visits.

Required Clothing

Men – Form-fitting Speedo® or Lycra® / spandex-type swimsuit, or single-layer compression shorts (without padding).

Women – Form-fitting Speedo® or Lycra® / spandex-type swimsuit, or single-layer compression shorts and sports bra (without padding or wires).

A swim cap is required for all testers and will be provided by your Bod Pod technician.

A private changing area is available prior to performing your BOD POD test.


What Does The BOD POD Measure?

Certified Body Weight
Body weight is simply your overall weight, as measured by our certified accurate scale during your BOD POD body composition analysis test.
Body Fat Percentage
A certain amount of fat is absolutely necessary for good health. Fat plays an important role in protecting internal organs, providing energy, and regulating hormones. The minimal amount of “essential fat” is approximately 3-5% for men, and 12-15% for women. If too much fat accumulates over time, health may be compromised.
Fat Free Mass
Fat Free Mass is every component of your body except fat that makes up your body’s weight. It includes muscle, water, bone, and internal organs. Muscle is the “metabolic engine” of the body that burns calories (fat) and plays an important role in maintaining strength and energy.
Total Energy Expenditure
Total Energy Expenditure, or TEE, is the total amount of energy you use per day (kcal/day). Your daily Total Energy Expenditure (TEE, kcal/day) consists of three components:

• Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
• Physical Activity (PA)
• Thermic Effect of Food (TEF)

Of these three, RMR is the largest contributing component of TEE at around 60-70%.

Don't Give Up

Many people follow a nutrition and exercise plan to become healthier. It’s hard work and easy to get discouraged if you don’t see results. If your bathroom scale says you’re the same weight at the end of the month that you were at the start of the month, you might ask, “Why bother?” But what if you actually replaced 3 pounds of fat with 3 pounds of lean muscle mass? That would be something to cheer about since you not only lost fat, but you gained muscle mass, which automatically means you’ll be burning more calories each day because of it. Don’t just go by the number on the scale. Schedule a follow-up BOD POD test to get the whole story.
