  • Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR/BMR) – the minimum caloric intake required to maintain current weight at rest.
  • Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) – the estimated caloric intake required to maintain current weight based on daily activity level.
  • Thoracic Gas Volume – the estimated lung capacity of the participant

What is the Bod Pod?

The Bod Pod © is a scientifically proven air displacement test that accurately determines metabolic rate, body composition and body fat percentage. The Bod Pod © is considered the gold standard of body composition measurement with similar accuracy to that of hydrostatic (underwater) weighing albeit easier and faster to perform.
A full test requires a total of 10-15 minutes and provides highly specific and accurate results for each participant.
A Bod Pod’s high level of accuracy allows participants to detect changes in body fat, metabolic rate and lean body mass and can be used to measure the success of your current nutrition and exercise program.

How can The Bod Pod help me?

Body Composition is one of the best indicators of overall health. The Bod Pod © helps to screen for obesity, aids in the ability to gain or lose body fat safely and provides feedback that allows participants to better monitor their athletic performance and weight loss strategies.

  • Removes all jewelry and glasses.
  • Do not apply any creams or lotions on the skin prior to the test.
  • Uses the washroom prior, if necessary.

    I had a BOD POD reading done on Thursday. I would recommend it. It was very interesting and highly accurate. It’s a great way to check in and see where your at in a more in depth version than stepping on the scale. I’ll definitely do it again to monitor progress. I have also used Perfectfit4u in the past for nutrition programming and it was a great experience that I will do again soon!
