For many people, Sparkling Hill is an opportunity to unwind. For others, Sparkling Hill is the beginning of a wonderful journey to improved health and wellness. 

Anyone who’s serious about self-improvement will benefit from a qualified assessment of their physical condition. Measuring your body fat is a good starting point. 

Unfortunately, standing on the scale in your bathroom at home won’t leave you with much inspiration.

A detailed understanding of your body’s composition can help you formulate a plan. Knowing your body fat percentage is key to eating better and choosing the right type of exercise. 

If you have 30 minutes to spare during your next visit to Sparkling Hill, you can gain some insights about your body and health. A BOD POD® session is helpful for anyone who is striving to get in better shape.

The Battle Against Fat  

BOD POD® is a body composition tracking system that provides the most efficient and precise way to calculate your body density and exact body fat percentage. The scales at the gym or the callipers found online won’t be as accurate or as thorough in the information they provide.

When analyzing the amount of fat you have, you need to remember that fat isn’t necessarily bad. 

Stored fat (fat mass) insulates your body as it cushions and protects your organs. A certain amount of fat  helps maintain your blood pressure and cholesterol. You need fat for energy as part of a balanced diet. 

It’s all about finding the right balance.

You may have been told what your Body Mass Index (BMI) is at some point. It is a calculation based on your height and weight. Although many people refer to their BMI as an indicator of their health, it does not take body fat into consideration and is not a good way to assess your overall well-being.

And that’s where the BOD POD® comes into play. 

BOD POD® Is Exhaustive, Easy and Fast

Generally speaking, you ideally want more muscle mass with less fat. Having an accurate way to track your body fat percentage and determine your body composition is a big plus, especially for athletes in training. 

Stepping into the BOD POD® at Sparkling Hill is a potential game changer. The physical analysis is completed in just under 5 minutes as you sit inside the space-age-looking chamber. 

The machine will quickly determine your fat percentage, fat mass, fat-free mass, body mass, estimated Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) and your Total Energy Expenditure (TEE). The results can be quite telling. 

And all you require is a form-fitting bathing suit. 

Maximize Your BOD POD® Results at Sparkling Hill

As the world’s only Air Displacement Plethysmography (ADP) system, BOD POD® is the most convenient and accurate way to measure your fat and fat-free percentages. 

What’s nice about having it done at Sparkling Hill is that you can tie this service into our other KurSpa offerings. 

The BOD POD® assessment costs $65 on its own, which includes an explanation of the results from one of our qualified technicians. 

For $95, you will also receive a KurSpa Fitness assessment to determine opportunities for improving cardio and strength.

If you’re ready to get started on a new workout during your stay, you can add a one-on-one coaching session to your BOD POD® session for a total cost of $130. Our trainers can take the information from your analysis and recommend exercises and foods for making physical gains. 

Then again, you might want to book yourself a nice massage as a reward for starting your new fitness regimen.
