We’ve all heard the old saying, “Fail to plan and plan to fail.” That is precisely the philosophy behind our body composition scans, also called DEXA scans, at Cenegenics Boston.
If your goal is to lose weight and get fit, you know you need to eat right and exercise. But if you do not know what to do or how long or how much to do it, your workouts could be very ineffective, causing you to see little results and give up before you’ve even started.
A body composition scan reveals exactly what your body is made up of. The DEXA (duel-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan provides one of the most highly accurate measurements of body composition available, registering fat and lean mass distribution throughout the entire body. In simple terms, it is capable of detailing overall, as well as regional, fat mass, lean mass, and bone mass.
With such a detailed picture of your body makeup, we can then determine which areas need to be targeted and develop a personalized nutrition and workout plan just for you. After a few weeks, we will scan you again and show you REAL results – how your fat mass has decreased and your muscle mass has increased. These kinds of results are not only exciting but motivating as well.
