Tanita Body Scanning
Tanita is an amazingly clever system that assesses your body and, very quickly, delivers 17 different measurements, such as your ideal weight, your BMI and your metabolic age, as well as your fat and muscle mass. We regularly use the Tanita scanner as part of our weight loss consultations.
The machine itself sends , pain free, currents round your body measuring its composition which is made up of your muscle, water, fat and bone and from that we can look at it detail how to improve your training, diet and overall health.
You may have heard people who have undergone a Tanita scan talking about their metabolic or real age, a very interesting feature that the machine offers. After collating your data Tanita anonymously compares you to your peer group and then can give you this value. Another very interesting feature Tanita has is that it can measure your visceral fat, sometimes also known as active fat, which is located around your abdomen and organs.
The great thing about Tanita is that regardless of your experience or ability, consistent use can give you an insight into how well you’re doing in the gym, with classes or swimming and pin point what you need to do to improve or maintain a healthy happy lifestyle!

Weight Loss Injections
You may have heard of these as they have been used by celebrities in the past. Weight loss injections are different from other weight loss medication that you may have taken in the past. It works like a hormone the body produces naturally that regulates appetite by activating the areas of your brain that regulate appetite. Weight loss injections may make you feel less hungry, which can lead to lower calorie intake and weight loss. Weight loss injections can help you to not only lose weight but also keep it off.
