How to Lose Body Fat Percentage

How to lose body fat percentage: Sophie’s story

Sophie O’Driscoll was 21 years old, and 142.5kgs in June 2020. But that wasn’t the only thing weighing her down.

She struggled with alcohol addiction, had torn a ligament in her ankle, she couldn’t walk up a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing, had sleep apnea, high cholesterol, a fatty liver, and was always getting sick.

After going to the gym on and off for a year, she did lose an enormous 50kg, but Sophie contracted Delta on New Year’s Day 2022 and was put into MIQ for monitoring. The time spent in isolation allowed her to self-reflect, and she realized that her starting weight wasn’t actually her rock bottom – yet. And she didn’t want to reach that point.

Joining her local BFT and an 8-week challenge, along with seeing the real numbers through an Evolt 360 body scan, was the motivation she needed to permanently change her lifestyle and stay consistent.

Sophie’s Statistics

Sophie first heard of the Evolt 360 body scanner in 2017 and found herself weighing 120kg back then. This time, at age 23, her starting weight going into the 8-week challenge at BFT was 71.8kg after her initial 50kg loss.

“I absolutely loved seeing the change in the abdominal circumference because that told me that my organs and liver and things were getting healthier and the fat around my organs had been shrinking,” Sophie says.

“Something a scale in your bathroom definitely could never show you!”

The measurements reported through Sophie’s Evolt 360 scan reports show an incredible difference in just one months’ time. So how is she feeling now?

“Honestly, I’m feeling so much better within myself, I feel stronger and more alive, which is weird to say, but I have color in my face again and I’m just honestly…glowing,” she says.

The Importance of Having the Facts

Seeing the numbers come from an Evolt 360 can sometimes be the wake-up call you need, and Sophie believes seeing progress as you move through your journey is essential.

“It’s so important to see the scanner track your body composition and transformation. I used to obsess over the number on the scale for a very long time, but with Evolt, I can actually see that I’m gaining muscle and losing fat, and that’s what’s important,” she explains.

“I’ve actually lost more fat than what the everyday scale would tell me because in my head I see every kilogram as fat and would never really account for muscle gain, water weight, bones, and all of the rest of the stuff in my body.”

“It’s vital to not look at the overall number on a set of bathroom scales because that’s not what’s important!”

A Starting Point. Because the number one reason members quit a gym is that they don’t use it enough, Evolt gets them motivated by providing a baseline measurement of the overall fitness. This motivates them to improve and provides an easy-to-understand measurement of their progress.


Better Nutrition. By using the free Evolt app, your clients can easily monitor the macronutrient breakdown that is updated with each scan. It takes the guesswork out of a nutrition plan.


Easy Reporting. Through Evolt Insights, our cloud-based reporting program, trainers have easy access to member profiles, allowing them to monitor their workouts and progress. It also facilitates automated Club Challenges.


Recurring Revenue. Evolt 360 actually creates a third revenue stream after membership dues and personal training fees. Do the math: If you add just $20 per month to your base membership for one scan a month, each client adds up to an additional $240 a year — $4800 a year for getting as few as 20 clients on the machine.


Unique Lead Generation. You can take your Evolt 360 out of the club to special events. Think health and wellness fairs, senior centers and recreation programs! The lead generation opportunities are limited only by your staff’s imagination.


Training for Trainers. We don’t just send you a box and leave you on your own. Evolt provides a proven on-boarding program for all new clients to make sure everyone understands the process and the science. Your success is our success.


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 your club should!


And 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.
