Body Composition

Skinfold Assessment (40 minutes) - £40

Recommended for: Professional Endurance Athletes, Weight Classified Athletes, Athletes involved in Aesthetically Judged Sports

What to Expect?

The right body composition is essential for almost all athletes to optimise performance.

Your body composition assessment will be completed by a fully trained ISAK Anthropometrist who specializes in body composition analysis.

During this assessment, the thickness of eight skinfold sites at specific locations around the body are measured using precision skinfold callipers to give an estimate of the measure of subcutaneous adipose tissue (i.e. fat beneath the skin).

Following your assessment, you will be provided with a detailed summary of your results including comparison to data from elite athletes in your sport.
