No, bio-impedance technology is very useful, scientifically backed technology used all across medicine, research and fitness. As with most medical tests, there are ways to prepare the body to improve accuracy. A comparable example is fasting prior to a glucose measurement.
I’ve been working with BIA for seven years, first in my wellness business and more recently I’ve been in my current role, working with businesses across the country. I am not just a sales person trained to sell a product, I am an industry expert. There are few people that can speak about BIA and body composition as well rounded as I can.
I recommend only units that are three frequencies, eight-electrode. Most professional units meet this standard. There is one popular manufacturer that sells an entry level unit that is two frequency. Many smaller, off-brands are one frequency. Again, any three frequency, eight electrode is going to meet your need for accuracy.
The numbers SHOULD CHANGE. Your body is mostly water and water is constantly changing in your body. The numbers will shift around a bit, especially if you aren't standing in the exact same position. This is why when we compare progress. We compare results every other week or even better, once a month. Any machine that isn’t recording the small shifts in water that occur over short periods of time, isn’t as accurate as one that does. However, ultimately, those small shifts are really irrelevant.
Most of the options a manufacturer’s sales rep puts in front of you, benefits them, not you. Because they have never actually worked with members in a gym, they know nothing about return on investment besides what they are trained to say to you. When you buy the unit, they get their commission and are on to the next sale. Let us work with you to put all of your options in front of you. Since we maintain our relationships with our customers, it is in our best interest to take care of you.
I can’t answer that. Maybe the competition is overpriced?
