BOD POD assessments require minimal preparation.

  1. Do not eat or drink anything for at least 2 hours prior to your test.
  2. Limit activity prior to your visit. Do not exercise for at least the 2 hours prior to your test as elevated breathing and body temperature may interfere with your test results.
  3. Schedule subsequent visits under the same conditions (time of day, hydration levels, etc.)

  • Form-fitting Speedo® or Lycra® / spandex-type swimsuit, or single-layer compression shorts (without padding), sports bra (without padding or wires)
  • Clothes MUST be form fitting for accurate results

  4. Your test will be complete in just under three minutes.
  5. Results will be provided immediately after the assessment. A copy of all assessment results will be kept on file.
