It is impossible to improve or change that which you have not accurately measured. Unfortunately, most fitness decisions are based on imprecise generalized data or calculations, that are not specific for you. An important example is the Body Mass Index (BMI), which is the most common calculation that is used to determine an individual’s fitness status. BMI calculations does not consider your, age, gender, fitness level, frame size, muscle mass, fat mass, fat distribution, hydration status and other important parameters that are unique and important to your fitness and health. BMI alone is not enough for an accurate and extensive evaluation of your fitness status, and can lead to an inaccurate fitness assessment.
To accurately determine your fitness status, it is not your weight or BMI, but your body composition that matters. Body composition measures, what you are made of, fat, muscle, bone and water, all of which are important in a precise assessment of your overall fitness and health status.
