Your appointment is not set until we receive payment. We do not offer refunds, but if you give 24 hours notice we can reschedule you for no additional fee.

Any additional questions? Please email us at or call 816-235-1772.

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
  • If improper clothes are worn, it may result in the necessity of a rescheduled appointment at the cost of the client
  • A swim cap is required for all testers and will be provided by UMKC Campus Recreation
  • A changing area is available in Swinney Center near the BOD POD testing area

Once you have dressed in your proper attire:

  1. Your height will be measured
  2. Your mass will be measured by the BOD POD precisely calibrated scale
  3. You will then sit in the BOD POD where your composition will be measured. While inside the BOD POD, you will experience a pressure change equivalent to an elevator from the first floor to the second. All you have to do is sit still and breathe easily.
  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.

A UMKC Campus Recreation Trainer will review and explain your results and answer any questions you might have. Results include:

  1. Certified Body Weight
  2. Total body fat mass and lean body mass and corresponding percentages of your total mass
  3. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR)
  4. Total Energy Expenditure (TEE)
