A body composition scale tells you more about your body health than a standard weighing scale: it provides information on individual elements such as water, fat and your metabolism.
Marsden body composition scales, when tested, were within 3% of the DEXA ‘gold standard’ of body composition. Their highly useful readings - like body fat percentage, fat mass, fat free mass, basal metabolic rate and total body water - to give you a complete picture of your body. You can read what each reading tells you here.
This month, we have updated our body composition scales, and they now provide more body composition readings than ever. But what are they and what do they mean? This blog post explains.
Weight gain is typically associated with eating too much and not doing enough exercise - but there have been many studies which suggest there are more factors at work.
Last year, Marsden published this blog post highlighting 10 things your doctor wishes you knew about weight loss. It highlighted the effects stress and a lack of sleep can have on your weight.
But what other things that might not have crossed your mind may be influencing your weight loss efforts? Marsden investigates.
A third of us started this year with the New Year’s resolution of losing weight, but as many resolutions are now beginning to fall by the wayside (or waist-side) it may be time to reassess your fitness goals. Of the 63% of UK adults that failed to keep a New Year’s resolution, around four in five were broken within 3 months.
Dietician Abigail Wilson, chief executive of ISOShealth.com, said: “These diets are just that, they are diets, but they are not behavioural change and do not last for very long. They need to be something that is realistic. It’s taken 10 years to get where you are with your weight, you’re not going to be able to fix it in five weeks.”
What scales do slimming groups use?
The Marsden team is asked this question all the time. Sometimes it’s home users, sometimes it’s consultants with their own slimming groups. People ask because they know slimming groups use accurate, robust scales - and they want the same.
The goods news is that Marsden supplies some of the UK’s leading slimming groups with weighing scales. Here’s what they use and why.
Marsden revealed last week that 33% of New Year’s Resolutions are to lose weight.
As we are keen to help you lose weight this blog post will look at another piece of advice: why you shouldn’t lose weight too quickly. Here’s why:
A US poll has found that striving to lose weight is this year’s top new year’s resolution – and in the UK, a third of our resolutions are to do with weight loss.
Last year we published top tips on how to achieve your weight loss goals. 1.9bn adults are affected by obesity, including 124 million children – so Marsden are keen to support weight loss endeavours, for the health of the nation.
This year, we’re doing something which may surprise you as a leading scales supplier – we're encouraging you not to weigh yourself every day.
In boxing clubs, keeping track of weight is crucial in reaching optimal performance and maintaining the desired weight class.
Marsden’s scales for boxing clubs are highly accurate and are used by boxing clubs throughout the UK.
But not all suitable scales for boxing clubs are the same. Each individual boxer is different and so is the need of each boxing club. We’ve put together this buyers’ guide to help you choose the right scale for your needs.
Whatever your motivates for weight loss – as the leading provider of scales to some of the country’s leading gyms and slimming clubs, at Marsden we have a duty to help.
The UK is set to be the most obese country in Europe with GPs already seeing on average four obese patients every day, there has never been a better time to lose weight.
