Here’s some tips on understanding the numbers on the BodyGem Analyzer software and printout.
RMR accounts for 70-75% of the calories a person burns each day.
The BodyGem Analyzer software determines how active their lifestyle is based on their work activity levels, numbers of hours worked, sleep hours, etc., and then adds those calories to compute their Daily Calorie Expenditure
Their Daily Calorie Expenditure is RMR + Lifestyle. This how many calories they will burn without exercise.
Their Daily Calorie Budget is RMR + Lifestyle – Weight Goal.
So the difference is based on their weight loss goal.
If someone has an RMR of 1,500 calories + their active lifestyle burns 400 additional calories, their Daily Calorie Expenditure would be 1,900
If their goal is to lose one pound a week, it subtracts 500 calories per day, so their Daily Calorie Budget is 1,400
Then if they exercise that day and burn 200 calories, their Total Calorie Expenditure would be 2,100
They can eat their planned Daily Calorie Budget and let those exercise calories that they burn help them lose weight more quickly.
Or they can add 200 calories to their Daily Calorie Budget to maintain the 500 calorie imbalance.
BodyGem Computer Adaptor Cable
Connecting the BodyGem to a computer during a test only gives you one benefit, that it automatically enters the RMR number in the Analyzer software.
The drawback is that you have to test your client near a computer, versus being able to test anywhere.
Most people simply enter the RMR number into the Analyzer software, as they are already entering client info anyway.
The cable (and USB adaptor) to connect the BodyGem to a computer is $50.
RMR Measurement Marketing:
To get listed on our corporate website, so that people can locate you for a metabolic rate test, print and complete this locator form
The marketing poster and trifold brochures that came with your system kit will help your clients understand the need for RMR testing.
The posters look great with a black frame from your local arts supply store.
The tri-fold brochures can be placed in a vertical brochure holder on your reception desk.
You can order additional posters and tri-fold brochures. Posters are $5. Tri-fold brochures are $25 for 50.
If your facility has glass at the entrance, you can have “Get Your Metabolism Tested” lettering painted on the glass to attract the attention of walk-by traffic.
People will pay just to know what their metabolic rate is, as many people believe that they have a ‘slow metabolism“.
To help you market your BodyGem metabolic rate testing services, I’ve provided some BodyGem RMR test marketing materials. You can update these Word documents with your contact information.

To Generate Additional Profits:
To increase your profits, it’s easier and more efficient to provide more services to your current client base, than to find more clients.
You’re in business to help people reach their health goals and to create income, but have you ever considered how you can leverage your time to create even greater results?
Clients come and go, but if there was a way to create a repeating residual income stream where you continue to generate income even after a customer moves on, would you be interested?
