Smart Lab

The gold standard in measuring body composition!

Used extensively by the NFL, the military, health care, and other organizations, Bod Pod is the most popular service offered by the SMART Lab. The Bod Pod provides a measure of your muscle to fat ratio, an indicator of overall health, and is a great tool for tracking fitness improvements.

When you come to the SMART Lab, a highly skilled research assistant will show you how to sit quietly inside the pod for less than three minutes while the system measures the displaced air around you. There's no discomfort and when you're done, you'll receive an accurate and comprehensive report of your body composition that you can use to make informed decisions about your health. The report provides you with your fat and muscle mass (body fat percentage, and lean mass percentage), and much more, such as estimated resting metabolic rate (RMR).

The Bod Pod is based on whole-body air displacement plethysmography, a scientifically validated method for measuring human body fat percentage. Because of its accuracy, the Bod Pod service is ideal for those who wish to track how they are doing before, during, and after starting a new exercise, diet, or other health program. See the "Track Your Progress" package for how to save 20% on repeat assessments.
