How to Optimize your Winter Workout and Body Scan Results

During the cold winter months, it is important to understand what happens to your body and how that could affect your BIA scan results during your winter workout. Cold temperatures can dehydrate your body, firstly because most people don’t drink as much water as they do during summer and secondly, because the body doesn’t hold as much water (to cool off) as it does on hot days.

It is important to remember that the body is still using water to keep the lungs moist (due to the fact that cold air is very dry); to keep blood volume, the cardiovascular and digestive system optimal and also our skeletal muscle working to its fullest capacity. So, even though we naturally don’t feel thirsty during winter, it is still important to keep up our fluids.

Winter Workout

The Evolt 360 is an approved medical device, which uses BIA Technology. To ensure repeatability and to achieve the best results it is recommended that the person doing the scan is rested, fasted and well hydrated. If they are dehydrated when scanning, this can affect their total body water volume and consequently lean body mass.

For this reason, we recommend a few things to ensure you and your client’s scan in optimal conditions to get the best results.

Here are a few valuable tips to follow prior to your scan and as a general rule:

  • Drink adequate water for your body weight: multiply 40ml of water times your body weight to find out how many liters of water you need on average. Example: 70kg x 40ml = 2.8 L of water a day.
  • For each hour of exercise, add 500ml of water (minimum) at the end or during the workout, especially if you sweat profusely.
  • Add hydrating foods to your plate: raw vegetables and fruits.
  • Have a few liquid nutritive foods during wintertime: soups, herbal teas and smoothies
  • Add carbohydrates to your post-training meals if you are doing weight training to ensure glycogen replacement and to bring fluid back to the muscle.

Enjoy the winter season and focus on your health and fitness goals. Make sure you have regularly Evolt 360 scans to track progress and take advantage of the great Evolt Active App.

Remember: summer body starts in winter.

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.
