Here's Why Dexa is for Athletes and Everyone Else
Athletes are always searching for ways to attain optimal weight, strength, and endurance, which are all related to body composition. The accurate way of measuring body composition objectively is through a DEXA scan which provides 99% accuracy by allowing the athlete to know exactly their bone, muscle, and fat specifics for every area of their body.
DEXA scan helps determine the optimal range of body fat for specific sports. Many professional teams and athletes use a DEXA scan to track progress in the off-season
and throughout the season. An example would be NFL teams, Olympic training centers, and Varsity sports team. A DEXA scan can help athletes establish and confirm diet and training programs, improve the speed of rehabilitation, and act as a source of motivation.
First, a DEXA scan provides feedback analysis for athletes to provide a trend data which can accurately validate the training diet program of the athlete.
Secondly, a DXA scan helps the athlete discover where an athlete loses fat and gains muscle for a complete assessment of body symmetry which aids in the performance of sports such as swimming, bodybuilding, and cycling. Body symmetry helps the athlete determine bone health, muscle imbalance and injury assessment. Not only is measuring body composition important for performance, it aids in recovery and decreasing chances of injuries by monitoring muscle atrophy and fat gain which can guide the athlete in adapting a rehab program for faster recovery.
Finally, it provides an ease of mind and a source of motivation by reassuring the athletes that the weight gain is the ‘right’ kind of weight gain.

Thinking of Losing Weight? Start with a DEXA Report
"Diets alone can result in less than 50% fat loss and even more than a 50% loss in lean muscle. With appropriate diet and exercise, fat loss is maximized, muscle loss can be minimized and even gained. It is important to know the difference and to have the ability to adjust the program." - Washington Institute of Sports Medicine
