BodyGem RMR – Resting Metabolic Rate Test Device
The BodyGem indirect calorimeter provides a precise measurement of your clients resting metabolic rate, which can account for up to
75% of their total calorie needs.
- Measured RMR is superior to estimation equations, such as
the Harris-Benedict formula and Katch-McArdle formula
- Knowledge of RMR and a scientifically based Daily Calorie Budget promotes greater weight loss for your clients
- Providing RMR measurements increases your revenue
Microlife’s WatchWT MedGem device is being used to assess metabolic changes in The Biggest Loser™ contestants. “We chose to use the MedGem device based on its accuracy in comparison to other indirect calorimeters.” said Dr. Robert Huizenga, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at UCLA and Medical Advisor to The Biggest Loser
The BodyGem is the same type of indirect calorimeter as the MedGem, but it’s designed for professionals who don’t need to make insurance claims.
Your clients look to you for success
Their goals are as diverse as their needs. You know each of them needs a unique solution to reach their goals, but how do you profitably and conveniently provide it?
Introduce your clients to their Metabolic Fingerprint™
A Metabolic Fingerprint, or resting metabolism, is the unique number of calories an individual burns each day without
exercise or activity, and accounts for up to 75% of their
total calorie needs.
An accurate Metabolic Fingerprint measurement provides the definitive answer when creating a personal program for each of your clients.
This means that whether you’re working with a client to lose weight, build strength, or complete their first fitness event, the plan you prepare will be based on their needs and deliver the results they are looking for.
The BodyGem device is the handheld, portable and profitable tool that gives you an accurate Metabolic Fingerprint measurement result in 10 minutes or less.
- Simple - To perform a measurement, your client simply breathes into the indirect calorimeter, which measures their oxygen consumption (VO2), the resulting RMR number is clearly displayed on the device’s LCD screen.
- Accurate - It has been validated against the gold standard Douglas Bag, and other commonly used metabolic carts (2,3,4)
- Convenient - It comes with a shoulder pack and is very portable, it’s self-calibrating, easy to administer, and provides a result in 10 minutes or less.
- Affordable - It is available in different measurement capacities to ensure your organization has the right device for your needs
“The ability to quickly and accurately measure metabolism with BodyGem, gets peoples attention. No more guessing about how much you should be eating – it’s right there in front of you.” - David Dansereau, Owner of One Body Health
The BodyGem benefits your clients by:
- Showing them their scientifically measured burn rate number reinforces that in order to lose weight, they need to feed their body, not starve it. Teaching them to work with their body, not against it, will give them long-lasting results.
- And when they get results, they begin an upward path of success, which changes their outlook on exercise and nutrition.
- It helps them avoid plateaus, as frequent testing allows them to adjust their caloric intake and eat the right amount of calories to meet their goals.
Here’s how the BodyGem can benefit you:
- When clients get results, they tend to stick with their programs and renew their contracts.
- They talk about their results – and your studio! – leading to a dynamic referral business.
- The tester pays for itself and continually generates income to maximize your earnings on your clientele. Trainers typically charge between $50-$70 per measurement.
- It helps you avoid cyclical changes due to seasonal and economic influences.
- The BodyGem sets you apart from the competition, as the more services you provide your clients, the greater the resource you can be for their health and wellness needs.
There isn’t a simpler, more accurate or profitable way to tailor each client’s program for ultimate success.
