IN BODY TEST

August 23–28

What does your weight really represent?

When you step on a scale, you can’t see how much muscle or fat you have — all you see is a number with no context. Go beyond the scale with the InBody Test, a non-invasive, quick, and accurate body composition analysis that provides a detailed breakdown of your weight in terms of muscle, fat, and water. Your comprehensive, yet easy-to-understand, measurements will display on an InBody Result Sheet in 15 – 120 seconds. Your body composition analysis can help you set your goals to take your exercise, nutrition, and overall wellness to the next level. Schedule an appointment to get your scan with a Certified Personal Trainer or Certified Health Coach today.

In order to produce the most accurate result, it is necessary for you to complete and adhere to the following protocols prior to completing the scheduled InBody composition analysis: Hydrate well the day before Do not eat or consume caffeine 3-4 hours prior to testing Do not exercise 6-12 hours priors to testing.

To schedule please contact Derek McClendon at dmcclendon@merrittclubs.com or Kirsten Hacker at khacker@merrittclubs.com.
