Body Composition Analysis

Body Composition - Understanding Weight Loss

Latest research has overturned the long held view that adipose tissue is merely a passive reservoir for storing energy. As adipose cells (adipocytes) become overfilled with fat their biochemistry changes. They secrete a wide range of highly bio active molecules(now called adipokines) with harmful metabolic effects. Excessive subcutaneous fat stores also lead to altered levels of oestrogen and testosterone playing havoc with individual’s physical condition. These fats can be determined to a moderate extent by using skin fold calipers at various parts of the body.

Excessive intra-abdominal or Visceral fats stored around the organs are shown to be even more dangerous than peripheral subcutaneous fat. They are active triglycerides (fats) which are being broken down 24/7 releasing glucose and other harmful compounds into the blood stream turning the body into a fat storing machine. Obesity characterised by high levels central abdominal fat is typically seen in people with a paunch and is hence described as android. Central fat can to some degree be determined by measuring a person’s waist circumference.

Bio Electrical Impedance Analysis.

In today’s world it is essential that we can accurately determine Body Fat Mass and Visceral Fat levels . BMI readings are very often not an accurate determination of a person’s physical condition as it does not take muscle mass into consideration.

BIA accurately assesses body fat , visceral fat ,muscle mass and bone mass by passing  very small electrical currents through the body. It works on the basis that fat and muscle have different electrical properties.

It is critical that we can determine each person’s body composition in order to compile a precise nutrition plan which will be specific to each person’s Fat Free Mass. We can accurately assess progress allowing us to fine tune the individual program ensuring dramatic results. Nothing is left to chance.

What Our Clients Say:

"Walking out of New You approx. 14 weeks later was easy. The whole world seemed different, I weighed 60lbs less, I was lighter on my feet having much more energy. Weighing 13 stone 5lbs with a 37.5 inch waist, felt great. Having lots more muscle tone, that felt even better. I am now significantly stronger tighter and fitter than ever before." - David Kiely

"After 12 weeks of 6am starts, constant attention from John, good pains and a well-balanced diet... I love what I have become. I couldn't believe that I fitted back into my leather trousers that I couldn't pull up above my knees. And boy do they fit well! I suppose losing 12 kg of body fat and over 8 inches from my waist whilst gaining nearly 2 kg of muscle had to make a difference. " - Caroline

"Its nearly 11 months since I started with New You. I haven’t put any weight back on, in fact I have continued to get considerably leaner lighter stronger and fitter.* I weigh just over 13 stone, my body fat is now under 15% which makes me pretty athletic, my waist is down to 32 inches and my lean tissue has continued to improve." - Colin Duffy

"Walking through the doors of NEW YOU for the first time was extremely difficult. At 55-years of age I had very little confidence and low self esteem. Twelve weeks later I walked out of NEW YOU a completely different person. I had dropped 37lbs of body fat, which meant I had gone from just over 11 stone to 8 and a half stone." - Yvonne

"I would like to thank my trainer and the medical support from New You and all the team who took a keen interest in my results. Also a special thanks to my mother Christine who got me started and supported me all the way. I have to say that one of the life changing moments I have had besides everything else… is to be able to buy clothes off the peg." - Kieran Smith
