Free body fat testing offered at BGSU PDF Print E-mail

While maintaining a healthy weight and body mass index is important, the Bowling Green State University Recreation Center is advocating another, more accurate health test.
The recreation center offers free body fat testing every week this semester.
The handheld testing device is non-invasive and calculates the user's body composition by sending electrical impulses through the body - the faster the electrons travel, the less body fat on the user.
"People get so stuck on the number on the scale," said Karyn Smith, BGSU health educator. "Health is more than a number."
A body builder can be considered obese when comparing his height to his weight according to a body mass index.  However, body fat testing measures lean muscle mass and gives a more accurate health reading.
