Evolt is a wellness company that is powering connected and digital health. We have developed an end-to-end solution that tracks detailed changes in the quality of the activity, body composition and nutrition as well as sophisticated data analytics for member body composition changes.
We get it. We’ve all been there. We join a gym – sometimes with a friend, sometimes by ourselves, often on January 1 or the first week of spring – and vow to work out every day, eat better and get ready for — summer, a class reunion, a wedding, whatever.
Then two or three weeks later we jump on a scale and see we have lost a grand total of TWO POUNDS! All that sweat, sacrifice, time and we lose the equivalent of a small bag of coffee. You can just feel your motivation and enthusiasm going out the door with you when you leave the gym. What’s the point, you think, if all that effort isn’t going to make your body look great or help you feel better?
That’s where the Evolt 360 comes in! Its state-of-the-art technology will let you know – scientifically, backed by data and easily accessible – if what you are doing is working. Are you doing the right workouts? Are you eating properly? Is your body responding to what you are spending all that time doing?
By analyzing the information provided by the Evolt 360 scan, you and your trainer can provide the answers to these questions and more, making sure you are on the right track with your exercise regimen. You can see immediately if your body fat has decreased, if your muscle mass has increased and, yes, if you’ve lost some weight. In a nutshell, you will be able to see if your are healthier than when you started a few weeks ago and, if not, how to adjust your program to make sure you are reaching your goals.
Access to this information can motivate you, help you understand your body better and show you areas you need to improve. And all of this information is delivered in an easy-to-understand way that can keep you on the right track to a better, healthier you.
This Intelligent Body Scanner is a simple-to-use 60-second scan that provides detailed data about your body through more than 40 measurements. It works simply by passing a safe electrical current through your feet and hands.
The resistance to flow of the current determines the difference between muscle mass, fat mass, water and mineral — a measurement far beyond the one-size-fits-all generic BMI. All readings are specific to you, allowing trainers to better design a health and wellness program.
The free Evolt Active App takes connectivity to the next level by putting your scan results in the palm of your hand.
Once scanned with the Evolt 360 Body Composition Analyzer, the app allows you and your trainer to track your body composition and provides macronutrient profiling, healthy lifestyle scoring and individualized supplement recommendations — all on your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.
It allows you to know exactly how your wellness program is working and how you can make it even better. You can even take your results with you wherever you go – anywhere in the world where there is an Evolt machine!
Understanding that healthy is not just a number

The Science behind BIA (bio-electrical impedance analysis)
The Evolt 360 technology does not provide clients with a ‘one-size-fits-all’ generic measurement by using pre-set algorithms that do not account for unique and personalized characteristics of you as an individual.
Based on the most up-to-date scientific information relating to the BIA analysis, the use of algorithm-based measurement is key to maintaining the accuracy of measurement for each individual.
There is no such thing as a “direct measure of body composition”.
The only way to obtain a 100% accurate measure of body composition is in post-mortem via dissection of tissue of a cadaver.
All forms of body composition measurements require the use of an algorithm, even though some companies claim they do not.
The accuracy of BIA technology, as validated in science, requires the input of five factors — height, age, weight, gender and impedance.
DEXA is the gold standard of Bone Density, not body composition.
Skin fold measurements will only detect subcutaneous fat tissue whereas BIA detects subcutaneous fat tissue and visceral fat tissue so they are incomparable measurements.
All BIA technology is validated in science as a repeatable and reliable measure of body composition.
The accuracy of BIA technology is subject to the conditions being standardised by the user (ie. same time of the day, temperature, training status, food contents & hydration status). The same applies to DEXA.
BIA technology is well respected in the scientific community as a reliable and repeatable measure to track body composition progression.
Evolt’s BIA technology uses five compartments (torso, both arms and both legs) rather than a single compartment to offer a more reliable body composition result.
The free Evolt Active App puts the scan results in the palm of your hand. Once scanned on the Evolt 360 Body Composition Analyzer, the app allows individuals and trainers to track body composition and provides macronutrient profiling, healthy lifestyle scoring and individualized supplement recommendations — all right on a Smartphone, tablet or desktop computer. Now users can know exactly how their wellness program is working and how they can make it even more efficient.
What the research says about Goal Setting
Research shows that people who don’t measure or track their goals or have a plan to follow, generally fail to reach their goals. Most people don’t know what to do once they find out their baseline measurements. Evolt’s own research shows that over 70% of our Evolt users stay motivated and engaged with their fitness goals.
The Evolt Active App is the most advanced, intuitive technology, individualise your calorie, macronutrient and supplement requirements based on your body composition metrics, body type, goal, activity level and activity type. The App is full of useful, relevant information to help you along on your health and fitness journey including progress charts and details on your progression.
The Healthy Lifestyle Questionnaire on the app can identify areas where you can improve your daily lifestyle habits. Most people don’t realise the little things they do everyday can have a substantial impact on long term goals. The Healthy Lifestyle Questionnaire can identify areas for improvement.
The Evolt 360 body composition analyser is a non-invasive bioelectrical impedance machine that scans your body in under 60 seconds. The body composition report comes with over 40 measurements showing how you compare to average standards and with detailed explanations so you can understand each part of your scan.
1.A Starting Point
The old saying in business goes that if you can’t measure it, you can’t sell it.
Well, it’s the same for your exercise regimen. If you can’t measure your progress – or lack of it – then you can’t be sure if you are doing the right or wrong thing. Evolt helps you concisely measure your progress.
Evolt gets you motivated by providing a baseline measurement of your overall fitness.
You know where you are starting out and can plan a program to get you where you want to be. This motivates you to improve and provides you with an easy-to-understand measurement of your progress.
Nutrition is a key component of any wellness plan.
By using the free Evolt app, you can easily monitor your eating habits and something called a macro nutrient breakdown is updated with each scan. It takes the guesswork out of your nutrition plan — and lets you know if you are eating right.
4.Know Where you Stand
Through Evolt Insights, our cloud-based reporting program, your trainer has easy access to your profile, allowing him or her to monitor your workout and progress.
It also facilitates those fun automated Club Challenges.
Evolt doesn’t just send your club a box and leave them on their own.
Evolt provides a proven on-boarding program for all new clubs and trainers to make sure everyone understands the process and the science. An educated trainer is your best resource.
6.Backed by Science
Evolt 360 is the exact opposite of a one-size-fits-all product.
Its science accounts for the unique and personalized characteristics of every individual. Just like you should demand of your health club and trainer.
One more thing
Scientific literature has written time and time again that there is no such thing as a direct measure of body composition — except in a post-mortem dissection of a cadaver. Scientific validation of BIA technology has proven the use of specific algorithms that consider age and gender to improve the accuracy of body composition measurement.
The Evolt 360 takes that even further by incorporating five specific personalized variables – height, weight, gender, age and impedance – to provide the most accurate body composition measurement for any individual.
Whilst not always possible, the recommended time to scan would be under the following conditions:
• First thing in the morning after emptying the bladder
• In a fasted state (ie no food prior to scanning)
• Well hydrated
• No consumption of caffeine or caffeine-containing supplements
• No training or activity that raises body temperature
If you are unable to scan until later in the day, always ensure that you consistently scan at that same time of the day with the same food and hydration status to maintain consistency and repeatability in readings.
Evolt has a proprietary, trademarked overview rating called BWI, which stands for Bio-Wellness Index. The Bio-Wellness Index score is a calculation based on the integrity of lean body mass versus total fat mass that provides a more purposeful number out of 10 as an overall measure of progress in the promotion of healthy lean body mass for longevity. The BWI Score is about establishing the right composition of weight gained or lost and takes into account the age and gender of the individual in comparison to World Health Organization standards. The higher the score, the better the wellness of the individual or the total collated group. The purpose of the BWI is to provide one simple metric as a measuring score of body composition health.
The antiquated score of BMI (Body Mass Index) uses only a measure of height over weight, which doesn’t distinguish whether the weight gained is lean body mass rather than fat mass.
Significant research exists supporting the importance of maintaining lean body mass in a fat loss scenario, such as:
