Body Composition Analysis

Define the ratio between body fat and muscles


Body Composition Analysis

Demarest Clinic's Body Composition Analysis (BCA) goes beyond what you expect from your typical health check to assess the proportion of fat to fat-free mass in your body. This is especially important for athletes, so that they may closely monitor their body composition. Athletes need to strike a fine balance of a low ration of body fat to muscle, bones and organs.

Body Composition Basics

A certain amount of body fat is important to all individuals, but primarily in three areas of fat storage:

  • Muscle tissue;
  • Subcutaneous fat (fat found just beneath the skin);
  • Visceral fat (fat surrounding the organs).

A certain amount of these fats exist to protect organs as well as to provide fuel for energy, and to regulate your body's hormones. Paying close attention to your levels of fat is important in order to get a full picture of your total health and fitness.

Healthy Ranges

Low body fat can increase the risk of injury, illness, low bone density (osteoporosis) and increase your likelihood of experiencing bone fractures.

The American Council on Exercise (ACE) has determined that the below are the medically accepted standard ranges of body fat percentages.

ACE Body Fat Percent Norms for Men and Women
Men Women
Essential Fat 2% to 5% 10% to 13%
Athletes 6% to 13% 14% to 20%
Fitness 14% to 17% 21% to 24%
Acceptable 18% to 24% 25% to 31%
Obese Over 25% Over 32%
