Understanding Body Composition Technology w/Dr. Josh Dexheimer
Anyone who has spent more than a day as a fitness professional knows that many clients have goals related to improving body composition. Have it be for reasons of health, performance, or aesthetics, body composition improvement is a prominent reason clients come to fitness professionals.

We’ll dive into the topic of body composition measurement in episode 95, with Dr. Josh Dexheimer, the VP of Product and Education for Styku, a company that works in the body composition technology sector. In this discussion with Dr. Dexheimer, we’ll explore the various modalities of body composition methods on the market today, their pros and cons, and practical principles for fitness professionals to consider when implementing these modalities into their practice.
