A record of the data
The Bio-impedance Analyser
It is a non-invasive device, which measures the impedance value of the body providing quick and effective analysis of body composition. Whole body analysis, rather than partial body analysis of arms or legs only, is measured for greater accuracy.
Bio-impedance analysers use the scientific tetrapolar method of four electrodes which are applied to the right side of the body on the hand, wrist, foot and ankle.
On entering all the parameters and resting in supine (laying flat) position with hands and legs slightly apart, the Bio-impedance analyser will pass a very small electrical signal (painless) through your body that will measure the resistances of muscle, fat, water etc.
You will receive a record of the data and statistics within a couple of minutes.
Accurate tracking of changes in Fat Mass and Lean Mass
The results of the Bio-impedence analyser are 99% accurate and provide far more information than just a BMI
!!! - Not suitable for people with Pace-Makers - !!!
For the most accurate results:
!!! - or in the early stages of pregnancy - !!!
- NO eating or drinking 4 to 5 hours prior to the test.
- NO exercise 12 hours prior to the test.
- NO alcohol or caffeine consumed 24 hours prior to the test.
- Try to perform the test around the same time of day.
- The key to healthy body status is not TOTAL WEIGHT but correct body composition.
- If lean muscle and fat weights are in correct proportion it does not really matter what you weigh.

Prior to taking on a new Personal Training clients we always insist that we have a consultation.
The informal consultation is free and can be conducted either face to face, over the phone or via email.
This will establish our suitability and any special requirements or reservations you may have will be acknowledged, understood and actioned.
The Testing Consultation fee is £10.00 which will be deducted from the first lessons charge.
The Testing Consultation should take approximately 40 minutes. We will run through a number of questionnaires and physical tests. Although time consuming this is vital as it will form the basis of your exercise program and indicate what areas require attention.
Questionnaires can be completed in advance:
- Lifestyle evaluation
- Health and Medical
- Blood pressure
- Resting heart rate
- Body fat measurement
- Height, weight and body measurements
- Lung efficiency
- Muscular strength
- Muscular endurance
The Testing Consultation includes a body composition analysis. This analysis provides more accurate information than a BMI, which does not take into account factors such as large musculature or water retention.
A record will be made of your results and this will be updated after each block of training sessions. This will enable you to track your progress and keep an eye on your accomplishments as you head towards achieving your goals.
"Health is not valued til sickness comes."
Before any prospective client is enrolled in a Personal Training program with Toughen Up we insist on an initial meeting.
We feel this is vital as not only does it ensure your suitability for exercise and determine at what level to begin. It also allows us to ensure the client is matched with a trainer that will be best able to assist the client with achieving their goal, we will then run through a number of exercises to see which you are best suited to.
The final programme will be a mixture of different elements with progressions to ensure your body does not get used to the new level of exercise. As when this happens the initial pace of achievement will slow and can be quite dis-heartening.
