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.
