Body Composition Testing

Body Composition Testing | Exercise Science Laboratories Community Services | USF

Body composition is defined as the proportion of fat mass and fat free mass (e.g., muscle) in the human body. Our laboratory utilizes research grade ultrasound technology, bioelectrical impedance assessments (BIA), and/or skinfold measurements to provide valid and reliable body composition results.

Benefits of Body Composition Testing 

  • Accurate data for individual profile
  • Determine body fat percentage
  • Determine muscle thickness and size
  • Determine total body water status
  • Accurately track progress over time
  • Inform an effective nutrition and training program
