Body Composition Monitoring

In physical fitness, body composition is used to describe the proportions of fat, bone, water and muscle in the human body. Because muscular tissue takes up less space than fat tissue, body composition, as well as mass, determines leanness. Body composition is therefore the proportion of fat and fat-free mass in the body.

A healthy body composition is one that includes a lower percentage of body fat and a higher percentage of fat-free mass, which includes muscle, bones, and organs. Body size and composition is one of the main fitness priorities, important for success in many sports. For many athletes, this is an area that they concentrate on to reach an optimal body shape for their sport.

Peak Preparation can measure your body composition and provide you with feedback on how your body composition has changed over time in response to dietary and training practices.
