CREATE YOUR MOTIVATION
You came to Totum or this website for a reason. You are/were either seeking information or walked through our doors to make a change in your health and fitness level. You are a small minority of our population who take proactive steps to do so. You can do even better by making sure that proactive step to walk through our door has long term successful results. In other words, don’t waste the effort.
Totum is moving towards a more objective, test-retest model. For this reason we need to have exceptional ways to let clients know how they are doing. This is why involving the use of The Bod Pod, for example, is one of the best ways to do this. By far the most common goal clients have is to lose weight. What is really meant is losing fat. This is a great goal and one that has all sorts of positive health benefits. But what if you also lost muscle mass while on this journey? This often happens because the approach nutritionally is not what it should be, nor is the type of exercise programming. What if you could maintain or increase your muscle mass while decreasing your body fat? You get more lean but you also get stronger and more confident, more capable in everything you do. Do you think that might help you at work? At home? Everywhere?
To be clear, this is not about being buff. This is reality. This is what our 30 year old clients want, our 50 year old clients want and our 70 year old clients want. All for different reasons but the results are the same.
Imagine having a Bod Pod test in 10 minutes and getting this crucial information. Then, you set some goals around improving the numbers you have in your hand. Three months later you test it again and now you have something extremely objective, and motivating, to tell you how you did. No refine your process and 6-12 months later check again. It’s so powerful and meaningful, and all focused on you.
So make use of that motivation that brought you here in the first place. Take it to the next level to see how you can do. Motivation is a powerful ally.
Here’s a few ways you can use the information:
1. Body fat is the most common interest people have related to their health and fitness. The Bod Pod is a tool much more advanced than skin folds, body fat scales or others. It is a very accurate, quick and easy way to determine your body fat.
2. Lean Body Mass is a far more important measurement as far as we are concerned. The better you are in this category, the healthier and more capable you are in sport or around the house.
3. As an accountability reference point. The Bod Pod provides much better information than body weight or BMI, and as a result you can use multiple tests (start, mid point and end) as a means to track your progress towards a goal.
4. As an annual measurement to track how your body is changing as you age. For those interested in keeping their bodies young, this is a fantastic way to track changes.
The Bod Pod test is a quick 5 minute assessment that can accurately determine your body fat percentage. It works by using air displacement to determine body volume. Calculations are then done comparing body volume to mass to determine your body composition. Elite athletes, professional sports teams, medical testing facilities and research studies all use the BOD POD as independent studies have confirmed its scientific accuracy.
