More important than what you weigh is what your body is made of, particularly your amount of muscle mass and fat tissue. Put simply, you’re much healthier (and better-looking) if you’re 220 pounds with a high percentage of muscle tissue than 220 pounds with little muscle. Our Body Comp Scan calculates your percentage of lean muscle and body fat. The results are often very motivating. Regardless of what the bathroom scale says, you’re getting results that you can see and feel. They also serve as a baseline for future reference.
Your individual coaching with a Pritikin exercise physiologist will put you on the best path for burning fat and reaching your weight-loss goals.
Lifestyle coaching at Pritikin has proven effective in helping people evaluate emotional and environmental triggers that lead to unhealthy eating. Your consult will help you take charge of your feelings and your food.

Our BME can greatly help in establishing an exercise program for you that is sustainable and safe. It begins with a 90-minute evaluation of your posture, alignment, gait, muscle strength, range of motion, flexibility, and any pain or discomfort you feel in your daily activities. You will then receive personalized instructions based on your unique needs. You will also receive a 1-hour private exercise session focused on your biomechanical and musculoskeletal profile. The end result is a home exercise plan designed for lifelong success.
Our Body Comp Scan will calculate your percentage of lean muscle and body fat in multiple areas of your body. Gaining muscle and losing body fat can greatly enhance your weight control efforts because the more lean muscle you have, the more calories you burn. More muscle mass also means you look better – leaner, more toned.
Osteoporosis (bone loss) can lead to fractures and significant bone deformity. Unfortunately, many people don’t know they’re at risk until they suffer a fracture and all its debilitating consequences. The good news is that bone loss can be assessed simply and painlessly with DEXA Bone Density Testing, the most advanced assessment of bone strength.

Having trouble controlling your weight? Several factors may be involved, including your resting metabolic rate, or RMR, which is the number of calories your body naturally burns every day at rest. As we get older, gain body fat, and lose muscle, our RMRs tend to decrease. Knowing your RMR is valuable because it will help you understand the optimal type of physical activity you need for shedding fat and building muscle, and boosting your RMR.
