Body Mass Index (BMI)

BMI is used as a general indicator for height to weight calculations. Actual Body Fat Percentages can very from the BMI. But for more information please talk to one of our qualified Personal Trainers.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)

BMR is used to calculate how much calories (food) you need to intake per day to maintain your current weight. By creating an unbalance in your daily calorie intake either positive or negative it will effect your body composition.

If your goal is weight loss then you need to either reduce your calorie intake per day or increase the amount of calories you burn per day through physical activity. By both decreasing your calorie intake and increasing your physical activities you can reach your weight loss goal quicker and easier.

If your goal is to gain lean muscle mass you need to intake more calories per day but in conjunction with a good weights training program.

For more information on the best ways to manipulate your current exercise and nutritional program for your goals please come in and talk to one of our Qualified Personal Trainers.
