The Fitness Program offers a variety of fitness assessments to help you establish a baseline and track your progress towards a sensible fitness goal. Simply stop by the Fitness Desk at the Leach Center to make an appointment or with any questions!

Bod Pod

The Bod Pod assessment provides a measurement of body composition including lean mass and fat mass using air displacement plethysmography. Similar to underwater weighing, this test uses density to determine these values. The test takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Bod Pod assessments are available on weekday mornings. Participants must fast for at least 2 hours prior to the test and may not workout prior to the test to ensure proper results.  

Current FSU students and Campus Recreation members may schedule and pay for a Bod Pod assessment via Rec Connect, select Programs > Strength & Conditioning.  

Non-members should contact the Fitness Staff for assistance.  To arrange a test outside of the offered schedule, please contact the Fitness Staff to review other options.

Bod Pod assessments are offered at the following rates:

  • FSU Students: $25
  • Campus Recreation Members: $35
  • Non-Members: $50
