What Is a DEXA Scan?
Our DEXA scan is the first step to your better overall fitness, health and wellness. A DEXA (dual-energy absorptiometry) scan is like taking a snapshot of your total physical health.
Medically-proven to be the industry’s most accurate body test available, DEXA scans are used at hospitals, universities, and professional athletic facilities all over the world. Pinch tests and water displacement tests cannot provide the same level of accuracy.
Discover your percentage of body fat, and how much fat mass versus lean mass you have in your total body. You’ll also be able to see your left versus right symmetry, so you can learn how injuries or overcompensation might be affect your performance.
DEXA scan also showcases a bone density analysis, so if you’re at risk of osteoporosis, you’ll know right away. You’ll gain access to a better picture (and real, measurable data) of what your body really looks like.
Knowing your composition enables you to:
- See how your fitness and diet regimen affects different areas of your body
- Compare your metrics to others in your age group, gender, and ethnicity
- Uncover health risks that might surprise you (e.g. osteoporosis, high % of visceral fat)
