WHAT IS A BOD POD?
Consider this capsule-shaped machine the gold standard of body metrics. Take a seat inside and, in just a matter of minutes, it will estimate your fat mass, lean body mass, body fat percentage, resting metabolic rate and total energy expenditure. Non-invasive and accurate to within 2% of your actual body fat percentage, it's pretty much one of the coolest ways you can analyze yourself.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Basically, the pod measures a pressure response to volume changes within its walls. It's as simple as that. And all within a matter of minutes! The results give you a personal body composition breakdown (think body fat percentage and lean muscle mass).
WHY DO YOU NEED IT?
Sometimes fitting in a pair of skinny jeans is enough to cause a victory dance, but having some hardcore numbers and stats can make you feel even better about your success. Bad-ass and pretty limited in Massachusetts, the pod allows burners access to the most accurate body fat testing--and can give you more insight on your capacity and potential.
WHY WILL YOU LOVE IT?
Aside from telling you just how much of your weight is fat mass and lean body mass, the pod can dole out plenty of other helpful info. Ever wonder how many calories you burn simply "at rest" while watching Netflix? That number can determine your fitness regime, help you tailor your eating habits and figure out just how much exercise you really need for your #goals. With monthly reports that hold you to your words, you can better manage your plan.
