Are you sure you want to lose weight?

Do you want to lose weight, or do you want to change your body composition?   A scale cannot tell the difference between a pound of fat and a pound of muscle.  You have to ditch the scale and measure your body composition.

People who do not have a fitness routine may gain fat and lose muscle without any noticeable change in their weight.  Those who have a consistent CrossFit routine may see their muscle mass is increasing at the same time as they are losing body fat.  Northglenn Health and Fitness can help you not just change your body composition, but also track your body composition.

We have an “InBody” machine that will, in less than a minute, breakdown your weight by measuring your muscle (what you workout at the gym), body fat and also calculate your BMR which can help you fine tune your diet.

Let’s use this fictitious person’s InBody results as an example:

  • Weight:  160.8 lbs
  • Skeletal Muscle Mass: 62.8 lbs.
  • Body Fat Mass:  48.7 lbs.
  • Percent Body Fat – 30.3

If this person follows a good nutrition program, and an effective exercise routine like CrossFit, they can reduce body fat & gain muscle even though their weight might not change.   If this person were to lose 10 lbs of fat, and gain in 10 lbs of muscle, it would take them from 30.3% body fat to 24% body fat and visibly make them appear much more fit (skinny jeans here we are!)

  • Weight:  160.8 lbs
  • Skeletal Muscle Mass: 72.8 lbs.
  • Body Fat Mass:  38.7 lbs.
  • Percent Body Fat – 24
