Body Composition Test

Our In-Body Composition 520 machine is designed to calculate your body fat percentage, muscle mass, water weight, and the proportional muscle in each appendage. Each Burns Recreation Center member is allowed up to three free tests per semester. However, one must wait 6-8 weeks in between each test. No appointment is necessary during regular hours of operation. Stop by the FitWell Center for your assessment. If you are unavailable during regular hours of operation, contact Jeff Palmer at jeffrey.palmer@lmu.edu to schedule an InBody Assessment. Before coming in for your test, be sure to remember:

  • No caffeine, alcohol or nicotine at least four hours prior to testing.
  • Avoid exercise on the day of the test.
  • Avoid meals two hours prior to the testing (light snacks okay).
