What is the InBody Test?

What does your weight really represent? When you step on a scale, you can’t see how much muscle or fat you have—all you see is a number with no context.

Go beyond the scale with the InBody Test, a non-invasive, quick, and accurate body composition analysis that provides a detailed breakdown of your weight in terms of muscle, fat, and water. Your comprehensive yet easy-to-understand measurements will display on an InBody Result Sheet in 15-120 seconds, depending on the model. No more pinching. No more dunking. Get results you can trust so you can reach your health and fitness goals with precision and actionable objectives.

How to Test

The testing procedure will vary slightly by model, but here is a general guide to InBody testing:

  1. 1.Wipe Down Hands & Feet

Wipe down your hands and feet with an InBody Tissue to increase your conductivity.

  1. 2.Step Onto The InBody

Align your feet with the foot electrodes—your weight will be automatically measured.

  1. 3.Enter Your Info

Once the InBody confirms your weight, enter your ID, height, and age.

  1. 4.Grab The Handles

Place your thumbs on the oval electrodes.

  1. 5.Get Into Position

Keep your arms straight and hold the handles away from your body at a 45-degree angle.

  1. 6.Maintain Testing Posture

Keep still and maintain the testing posture until the test is completed.

  1. 7.Receive Your Results

Your InBody Test results will automatically print out once the test is completed.

We recommend testing every 2-4 weeks under the same conditions to accurately track your progress.
