Body Composition

The Fitness Program offers free body fat analysis using the 3-site, skinfold method. All Body Composition assessments take place in the Leach Center. Please wear appropriate workout attire (shorts are preferred). We recommend that you do not workout prior to skinfold body composition assessments, as it is known to cause inaccuracies in measurements.
