BODY COMPOSITION TESTING

Using a technique called ISAK, Fueling Forward offers body composition testing that can provide insight into your current nutrition, lean body mass, and injury risk status. This can help you track your progress throughout the season and find the optimal body composition at which you feel and perform your best.

WHAT IS ISAK?

ISAK stands for the International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry. This is a unique form of body composition testing that includes a number of skin fold and circumference measurements. The sport specific "high performance" ranges are evidence based and can indicate areas for improvement as well as risk for injury. 

WHY USE ISAK BODY COMPOSITION TESTING?

ISAK provides much more insight into fitness and nutritional status than other forms of body composition testing. The ISAK technique allows us to see site specific changes indicating muscle development and can show how strength is developing throughout the season. In addition, there are research based parameters specific to different sports that can tell athletes, coaches, and trainers what areas of improvement need to be made.  

HOW CAN ISAK HELP YOU?
  • Track your progress throughout the year

  • Find the body composition at which you feel and compete your best

  • Reduce risk for becoming injured

  • Tailor your nutrition and strength training to achieve your unique body composition goals
