Body composition analysis is available to all Santa Monica Family YMCA adult members at no charge.  The test measures the amount of total body water, lean body mass, and body fat.

There is a pre-test protocol to follow to ensure accurate test results:

  • Do not exercise or use the sauna within 8 hours prior to the test.
  • Refrain from alcohol intake 12 hours prior.
  • Refrain from a large meal or caffeine at least 4 hours before testing.
  • Do not take the test if you have a temperature or have excessive sweat or moisture prior to testing.

Body composition analysis is located in the Healthy Living office on the second floor adjacent to the Fitness Center.

Appointments may be scheduled by contacting our Fitness Counselors at
