Body fat percentage is thankfully gaining more popularity as an effective marker of overall health and fitness instead of the BMI Index. Body Fat Percentage – is the amount of body fat (lb, or kg) divided by total body weight listed as a percentage. Body Fat Distribution – We all have different body fat distributions, or how fat is distributed across our body. Body Shape -Similar to body fat distribution is we all have different body shapes, so two different body shapes may have the same body fat percentage even if they don’t look like it.
Muscle Striations – As an individual becomes more defined, the actual muscle can be seen more clearly, which looks like thin rods, referred to as striations.
Vascularity – This is the appearance of veins in different areas of the body as body fat decreases.

We are happy to provide you a no-obligation, no-charge trial to discuss your goals and how we can work for you! The body fat percentage chart below is based on guidelines by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Healthy body fat percentages in the yellow, green and blue bands imply that your risks for weight-related ailments are lower than the unhealthy body fat percentage bands colored orange and red. For example, some women may have very little body fat on their abs, but a lot on their thighs and triceps, while others will have the opposite. A classic example is a skinny runway model may have the same body fat percentage as a fit, athletic women. Most body fat measurement devices will reflect higher body fat levels as the age increases.

If you are serious about getting results and reclaiming your attractive, healthy, and energetic body and stop “spinning your wheels” once and for all, please don’t wait another minute to contact us.
If your body fat reading is in the overfat or obese range, losing weight (body fat) will improve your health. For example, a 20 year old man and a 50 year old man may have the same subcutaneous body fat measurement (fat under the skin), but the 20 year old may be 15% and the 50 year old will be at 20%. As we age, fat around the organs (visceral) and within muscle (intramuscular) tends to increase and most formulas take this into account.
