InBody & Your Basal Metabolic Rate

By July 5, 2017 May 29th, 2019 No Comments

Hopefully by now you have met with one of the trainers at Genesis (and if you haven’t, schedule it now!!) and have used the InBody. In the short time we spend in the back we discuss your goals and how to approach them based on your current InBody results. As you have heard many times, especially as we go over your InBody results, we always want to make sure you are eating enough and how under eating can prevent you from achieving your goals. One of my favorite numbers that the InBody provides is your BMR, or your Basal Metabolic Rate.

You BMR gives us a baseline number of how much energy your body uses to run for 24 hours at rest (imagine laying in bed, perfectly still for 24hrs.) This number covers all vital functions such as gas exchange and pumping blood throughout the body.

Using your BMR we can establish a calorie range to help you reach your goals whether it is fat loss or muscle gain.

Below I have attached a website that explains what I have summed up. It also shows you the math behind it and allows you to plug in your personal information. If you are curious about your results, schedule a time with one of the trainers and we can discuss what they mean to you!
