It is the client's responsibility to ensure they are following all of the specified Bod Pod protocol:

  • Fast from food for 3 hours prior to appointment (water is okay)
  • No exercise for 3 hours prior to appointment
  • Wear only compression shorts (men), or Speedo style swimming suit (women). Y Be Fit can supply these if you do not have your own.
  • Remove all metal, jewelry, and additional clothing (a swim cap will be provided to be worn during the test)

Y Be Fit calibrates the Bod Pod each morning and in between each client test. Since body volume can be difficult to measure precisely, each Y Be Fit client is measured twice in the Bod Pod and then the average body fat percentage of the two tests is determined.  

Bod Pod has similar accuracy with underwater weighing. The two methods usually agree within 1% body fat for adults and children. Research studies have demonstrated an average test-retest variation of plus or minus 2% body fat for the Bod Pod.

 
 
Below is information about how the Bod Pod works and a video produced by the makers of the Bod Pod to help clients know what to expect during the test. Y Be Fit uses a predicted thoracic volume rather than a measured volume as shown in the video.


Y Be Fit offers a 15 week program which includes pre and post Bod Pod tests in addition to other fitness assessments and weekly health coaching sessions. For more information, please explore the Program Information tab at the top of this page.
