At David Lloyd Clubs, we pride ourselves on providing our members with the best tools and support to help them achieve their fitness and well-being goals. That’s why we’ve made Boditrax one of the key technologies in many of our gyms. We’ll explain what Boditrax is, how it works and why it’s such a useful tool for your fitness journey — whether you’re a beginner or an experienced gym-goer.
What is Boditrax?
Boditrax is a state-of-the-art body composition analysis system that provides a wealth of information about your body’s current condition. In other words, this is a piece of kit that helps you understand your body better, set realistic fitness goals and track your progress over time. By focusing on improving your overall fitness and well-being rather than one particular aspect of your body or performance, Boditrax offers a holistic approach to health that aligns with our values at David Lloyd Clubs.
How does Boditrax work?
The Boditrax system uses advanced bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) technology to measure various aspects of your body composition, such as muscle mass, body fat percentage and hydration levels. By sending a safe, low-level electrical current through your body, it measures the resistance or impedance encountered by the current as it travels through different tissues. This data is then used to calculate your body composition with high accuracy.
To use Boditrax at a David Lloyd Club, if it’s your first time, you can try a body composition scan without needing to register.
Within seconds, you’ll receive a comprehensive report on your body composition. It’s worth registering after that, though, so you can track your progress – you’ll do this with your membership card.
Once you’re registered, you’ll be able to login to the Boditrax machines using your membership card. You’ll also be able to view your data through the online portal or David Lloyd/Boditrax mobile app for easy tracking and analysis.
The benefits of using Boditrax for your training
1. Set personalised goals
Boditrax allows you to set fitness goals based on your unique body composition, ensuring they are realistic and achievable. By understanding your starting point, you can create a tailored fitness plan that targets specific areas, such as increasing muscle mass or improving hydration levels.
2. Track your progress
Regular Boditrax assessments enable you to monitor your progress over time and make adjustments to your fitness plan as needed. This ongoing feedback can be highly motivating and help you stay committed to your goals.
3. Get a comprehensive analysis
The detailed body composition data provided by Boditrax goes beyond simple weight measurements to give you a more in-depth understanding of your overall health and well-being. This information can help you make more informed decisions about your nutrition, lifestyle choices and fitness routine (for example, finding the group fitness classes best suited to your unique goals).
4. Identify imbalances and potential issues
Boditrax can also highlight imbalances in muscle mass between different body parts or alert you to potential health risks, such as low hydration levels. This information can be invaluable in preventing injury and maintaining optimal health.
Who is Boditrax for?
Boditrax is suitable for all fitness levels and is an excellent tool for both beginners and experienced gym-goers. For beginners, it provides a solid foundation to build a personalised fitness plan and helps instil the importance of understanding your body composition. If you’re an experienced gym-goer, Boditrax offers valuable insights to help you fine-tune your training and maximise your fitness potential.
At David Lloyd Clubs, we understand the importance of personalised fitness and well-being. By incorporating Boditrax technology into our clubs, we provide our members with the tools and knowledge to take control of their health and achieve their fitness goals. Best of all, it’s completely free to use. You can use your results to set yourself some fresh fitness goals and track how you’re doing.
