The Stellenbosch Virgin Active has a pretty cool BIA machine which sends you PDF reports with your progress.
These two reports are 24 days apart.
It seems I lost 4.9kg of fat and gained 3kg of muscle, resulting in a 5% drop in body fat%.
Notice the total weight does not change much. Without data like this (estimating fat and muscle mass) it would be easy to feel a bit discouraged – only looking at total mass on a scale, but I’m pretty happy with the results.
Yes, BIA is not super accurate (+-4%) – but I have 7 reports along the way which all point at the same trend.
I’m simply going to gym 4 morning a week and doing 30min of cardio (with HRM) on school run days (about twice a week).
Nice toy. Thanks VA.
ps. Also notice that BMI is BS number.
