Why Measure Your Body Composition With DEXA?

DEXA gets you answers. Not estimates. 

Knowing your actual body composition distribution gives you the information you need to:

  • Discover your body's individual needs and how to customize your training and diet to optimize health

  • Visualize and pinpoint the exact impact of a new plan down to precise muscle gains and fat loss in specific areas of the body

  • Optimize your program to suit your body's specific physiological response to your diet and training

  • Discover your bone health and learn your risk for osteoporosis 

  • Identify personal long-term health risks, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hormonal imbalances, and more


What is DEXA?

Sometimes called DEXA, Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry is the gold standard for measuring body composition and bone health. It's the preferred method trusted by medical professionals, research facilities, and sports labs around the world. 

A DEXA scan is a quick and easy test that measures your total body fat and includes the exact breakdown of bone mass, fat tissue, and muscle in your body.

A DEXA scan is the most precise and reliable body fat test available today, providing you with 98%+ accuracy.


  • Wear workout-type clothes without any metal when you come in for your test.
  • The test takes about 10-15 minutes.  All you do is lie down on the table and the C-arm will pass over you 3 times; you won't feel a thing.
  • Once the scan is completed, our doctors will review your results and answer any questions.
  • You will get a full print out of your results to take home with you.
