The negative impact of excessive weight on overall health is widely known and reported. However, studies have also shown that the health benefits of normal weights appear to be limited to individuals who have moderate or high levels of cardiorespiratory fitness (1,2).

With the use of bioimpedance analysis (BIA) to monitor key indicators of health and fitness, health care practitioners can develop, monitor, and manage diet, nutrition, and exercise programs that lead to improved overall physical condition.
