What is a composition scan?
A Body Composition Analysis or Scan refers to the process of measuring the many different components of a person’s body - and most importantly, discussing the health implications of what can be learnt about what you’re ‘made of’.
The analysis equipment used by the Health Coach, is the worlds most advanced Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) scanning equipment, that allows them to provide you with incredibly accurate, repeatable, non-invasive, quick and easy Body Composition Analysis.
The scan will provide outputs including:
Lean Body Mass
Body Fat Mass
Skeletal Muscle Mass
Dry Lean Mass
Body Mass Index
Percentage Body Fat
How long does it take?
The scan provides a detailed analysis in less than a minute, you will then speak to the Health Coach for about 5-10 minutes about how to improve on the results of your scan and what you need to do to create a healthier lifestyle.
Is there any scan preparation?
Yes, there is, you will need to make sure you don’t exercise 2 hours before hand, don’t drink large amounts of water and wear loose, light clothing. Further information will be communicated to participants closer to the scan date.
Can anyone have the scan?
Most people can, however those with pacemakers or other electrical devices should not be scanned due to the low levels (undetectable) frequencies of electricity. Whilst safe it is not recommended for pregnant woman to also be scanned.
Can I join in and not do the scans?
Yes, you can join in for free if you don’t want the scans but you won’t be eligible for the prizes. You will also still need to sign the waiver form.

How are the prizes awarded?
The main prizes will be based on the top 3 most improved participants. Organisers will calculate the average sum on the most improved outcomes of the scans including % of body fat lost, muscle gained and visceral fat area taken from the end scan.
Do I receive a registration pack?
Yes, every fully paid registered participant will receive a registration pack with goodies to help you along the 8-week challenge.
What do I do if I work outside of Head Office and won’t be able to make it to the scans?
We still encourage you to join the challenge and there will be alternative options for both group exercise and body composition scans. If you have any questions, please contact Carly on 0419 324 139.
Haven't exercised in while?
Whilst this challenge is for everyone, if you do participate in high intensity training, it must be approached cautiously in the beginning, a gradual ramp up of intensity is necessary to allow muscles cells to adapt to the new demands placed on them. Failure to do so, opens the door to a life threatening condition, known as ‘Rhabdomyolysis’. In the short, the muscle cells are damaged flooding the blood stream with toxins that can overwhelm the kidneys as they attempt to cleanse the blood, loading to potential shut down. Strenuous physical activity can cause ‘Rhabdomyolysis’. It is important that you start at a reduced intensity. Brown urine, complete muscle weakness and/or swelling of joints are a warning signs of ‘Rhabdomyolysis’. If you develop these symptoms, seek medical assistance IMMEDIATELY.
