no. 55 – The DexaFit Episode

Tons of scales on the market may say they offer up body fat analysis, but experts agree most of them are riddled with inaccuracies. The gold standard DEXA-scan offers a much truer picture of body composition, but up until recently had been fairly difficult to access for the average, everyday athlete or weekend warrior. DexaFit locations across the country are changing that.

Disclosure: I was provided the testing done in this episode at no cost.

In this episode with Maureen O’Mara, owner of the Atlanta DexaFit location, we discuss:

  • the different testing services DexaFit offers, including DEXA Body Composition Analysis, 3D Body Scanning, RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) Testing, Vo2max Cardiovascular Fitness Testing and more
  • the pre-test protocols required for theRMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) Testing
  • what type of reporting DexaFit provides to clients following their tests
  • how the testing provides more than just insights into body aesthetics by offering a measure longevity

I close out the show with a preview of a topic that’s likely to become a future show topic and one that’s been on my mind lately — enneagrams. I’m candidly sharing that my status as an enneagram “1” and therefore my need to be “right” is a character trait that I’m working on. I’m also asking listeners of the show to let me know about their enneagram OR let me know if this is a topic that they’ve never even heard of. 

Lastly, I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to the This Unmillennial Life audience for pushing the show into the Top 75 of Personal Journal podcasts on iTunes. Your support means the world to me! ~Regan

This week’s episode of This Unmillennial Life is brought to you by The Soyfoods Council. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or an omnivore like me, soy protein can be an excellent source of muscle-building protein. In fact, a comprehensive analysis that included 9 clinical studies published in 2018 found that among men engaged in weight lifting, soy protein lead to similar gains in strength and muscle mass as animal protein and milk protein.
