FREE Body Composition Screening

Body Composition refers to the relative percentages of fat and nonfat tissues in the body. A Fitness specialist can assess your body fat percentage (using bioelectrical impedance or skinfold calipers) and tell you what it means for your health. For best results, do not work out for 24 hours prior to your assessment. Stop in during any of the scheduled Free Body Composition Screenings posted throughout the year, or call 414-229-0533 or visit the UREC weight room desk to schedule an appointment.
