Top 3 Reasons To Know Your Body Fat Percent

1) Assess risk for chronic disease Unhealthy levels of body fat have been linked to a variety of health related issues, such as type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, and stroke.

2) Measure Progress Knowing your body fat percent is the first step.  The next step is taking action.  If you have been actively working to reduce your body fat percent, measuring your progress can help determine if your plan is working effectively.

3) Motivation Seeing improvement can be very motivating.

May Nutrition Challenge

Challenge Your Self to Eat Clean for 30 days!
Beginning April 25th, we invite all that are curious to join us for a 30-day experiment ending May 22nd. Commit to eliminating all foods that are known to increase your statistical risk for disease, disorder or dysfunction.  For 30 days, alongside your F.I.T. comrades, we challenge you to eliminate:

  • sugar and sweeteners (including honey and agave)
  • grains
  • legumes
  • dairy
  • caffeine
  • alcohol

Enjoy a wide array of vegetables, animal proteins, healthy fats, and fruit.  Track how your body responds – how you feel, how you sleep, energy throughout the day, performance, recovery, and mood.  Engage in an online forum of participants to share challenges, offer suggestions, and share/find recipes.  It’s just 30 days and promises to be an enlightening experiment.  Email [email protected] or sign up at the front desk when you are in so that we may offer encouragement and help hold you accountable along the way.
