I’ve always been curious to have my body composition test via an accurate method (water weighing, Bod Pod, etc) but could not find anywhere local….until today.
I did a Google search for “Bod Pod testing” and one of the results was an article from May 2009 that appeared in the Hamilton Spec newspaper. It indicated that McMaster Univertisy has a Performance center with a Bod Pod, and that they do testing for the general public. SCORE!
I called them up and I have an appointment on Monday Feb 8 @ 5:30 PM. I’ll be bringing my OMRON Hand Held Body Fat tester with me. Once I’m done in the Bod Pod, I’ll check with my OMRON to see what the difference is, then I can correlate between the 2 for future reference.
Currently, my OMRON is telling me around 24%. I predict the BodPod will tell me around 26-27%.
Anyhow, I’ll report back on the experience & results Monday night. 😎
