Why does my health club calculate a different body fat percentage than what I calculate?
Body fat tests at a health club or clinic, in addition to their cost and inconvenience, require someone to perform the test on you (i.e., a "tester"). With methods such as bioelectrical impedance, other calipers, and even underwater weighing, you risk the possibility of different "testers" using different equipment, techniques, and procedures each time a test is performed which can greatly affect accuracy and reliability. Numerous studies have shown that one person's body fat test results can vary greatly depending on these variables. With the Accu-Measure fat caliper, you are in control of all of these variables - you perform the test using the same instrument in the same manner. By eliminating the variables which can affect accuracy and reliability, the Accu-Measure actually has a technical advantage over methods used in a health club or clinic.
How often should I test my body fat percentage?
That depends on what you're trying to accomplish. If you're happy with your current body fat percentage, a test every month or so will tell you if you're maintaining it. If you're trying to lose body fat, however, you should test yourself every week to make sure you're losing fat, not muscle. Daily body fat tests aren't necessary simply because fat doesn't disappear overnight.
