Body Fat Testing

KINESIOLOGISTS.CA offers the highly sought after Skinfold Clip Analysis body fat testing using Harpenden calipers.

Can’t lose fat despite working hard in the gym and eating a healthy diet? You will benefit from body fat testing.

    • You may have a hormonal imbalance that is holding you back.
    • Harness the power of your hormones to help you lose weight in specific areas.
    • Discover your specific road map to fat loss.
    • Lose fat in less time with less effort.

Why have a Skinfold Body Fat Analysis?

    • Body fat analysis looks at the location of your body fat in order to determine your specific biological signature.
    • The body stores fat in particular locations based on the internal chemistry of our hormones; for example, plenty of research has shown the correlation between abdominal fat and the level of our primary stress hormone, cortisol.
    • The analysis can help determine your hormone profile by measuring how much fat you store in specific areas of the body. The areas the fat is stored dictates how you can lose fat based upon your unique profile in less time and less effort.

What is included in the skinfold analysis?

    • Skinfold measurements at 10-12 specific sites.
    • Accurate body fat percentage (using up to 8 different calculation methods).
    • Analysis of personalized data (what are your problem sites and what does it mean).
    • Informational handout of what you can do to fix the problem with food, supplements
    • exercise and lifestyle practices.

FMS – Functional Movement Screen

functional movement screen

We, at KINESIOLOGISTS.CA, understand the benefit of the Functional Movement Screen.  That why we are certified in the FMS protocol in Vancouver.   The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is the product of an exercise philosophy known as Functional Movement Systems. This exercise philosophy and corresponding set of resources is based on sound science, years of innovation, and current research.

How it Works – Simplifying Movement

Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.

The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.

Exercise professionals monitor the FMS score to track progress and to identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual.

What it Does – Widespread Benefits

The FMS simplifies the concept of movement and its impact on the body. Its streamlined system has benefits for everyone involved – individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians.

    • Communication – The FMS utilizes simple language, making it easy for individuals, exercise professionals, and physicians to communicate clearly about progress and treatment.
    • Evaluation – The screen effortlessly identifies asymmetries and limitations, diminishing the need for extensive testing and analysis.
    • Standardization – The FMS creates a functional baseline to mark progress and provides a means to measure performance.
    • Safety – The FMS quickly identifies dangerous movement patterns so that they can be addressed. It also indicates an individual’s readiness to perform exercise so that realistic goals can be set and achieved.
    • Corrective Strategies – The FMS can be applied at any fitness level, simplifying corrective strategies of a wide array of movement issues. It identifies specific exercises based on individual FMS scores to instantly create customized treatment plans.
