Whether in daily life, work, recreational activities, or even in your workouts, you are bound to experience at least a minor musculoskeletal injury. That is why we offer an opportunity for a free assessment by a physical therapist right here on staff. Based on the assessment, we can refer you to the right specialist and then work with that specialist to get you going again.

Bod Pod® Body Composition Tracking System

BOD POD testing accurately measures your body composition to indicate the percentage of body fat vs. lean body mass. This test is quick and simple with printed results in about 10 minutes.

The BOD POD is the gold standard to measure body composition using air displacement technology to provide the most accurate measurement available. Your test results can be used to assess body composition, track the efficacy of your nutrition and exercise program, and more.

For your BOD POD test, your basic information is entered into the program. You are then provided a swim cap to wear. Two to three measurements (45seconds each) will be taken measuring your air displacement after which you will be given a hand out containing your results. You will meet with an Urban Fitness and Health Fitness Consultant  to review your resu​lts.

Call 360-848-1616 to schedule your test!
