Marcus Moore, a 46-year-old man, had been gradually gaining weight over the years. He realized he had hit the 135kg mark during a business trip to Japan in late 2022. After this realization, Marcus decided to take control of his health and focused on improving his overall well-being. He began by reducing his calorie intake, cutting portion sizes, and following basic nutrition principles to start his transformation.
Currently weighing 115kg, Marcus is well on his way to a healthier life. He learned that proper nutrition and exercise are equally important for his body transformation. Marcus started his incredible journey to discover how his body works by joining his local training center. Thanks to the gym’s Evolt 360 intelligent body scanner, Marcus learned all about his body composition. The Evolt 360 measures body fat and more than 40 other measurements, which provided a detailed overview of his body composition.
“After that initial scan, I had my baseline and understood my body composition, which gave me more impetus to make the changes I needed to…getting me onto the body composition scanner was a challenge in itself as I wasn’t really keen to know exactly how heavy I was,” he said.
“I’ve had body composition analysis scans done on other machines before, but never with such a detailed overview and never with the ability to see the results in such a clear way.”
“I consider myself in weight loss mode due to my excessive weight, so am currently on 1500cal; whilst I appreciate this is a short-term process initially, once I hit my goal weight of 95kg, I would like to get my body fat percentage down to around 20%. This will be a lot harder and will require a lot more focus on training, eating healthily and making good decisions.”
From October 2022 to January 2023, Marcus trained 4-6 times per week in small group trainer-led strength sessions, which he found the most enjoyable. He admits that sticking to 1500cal has been hard, but seeing results is what keeps him going. Marcus’s diet includes a small breakfast of eggs, fish, or toast with yogurt and fruit, a small salad or leftovers for lunch, and usually chicken, fish, or red meat with vegetables for dinner. Sticking to the lower calories during the week has seen his overall weight trend keep reducing over time.
Evolt 360 has helped Marcus track his body transformation with its detailed overview of body composition. He found the Evolt 360 intelligent body scanner more comprehensive than other machines he had used before. With its ability to measure body fat and more than 40 other measurements, the Evolt 360 is an essential tool for tracking body composition and body transformation.
Marcus’ View On The Evolt 360 body scanner
Marcus admits that without a body composition analysis, there would be no ability to really home in on his training and nutrition.
“I’ve never seen such a detailed overview of results before, but with an easy-to-use interface on the Evolt Active app, even for someone not that into technology, I can clearly and accurately see a very detailed body composition,” he says.
“I’m an engineer by trade, so I always like to ensure whatever I’m doing with my health is not based on a short-term fad or loose opinions; but rather by trainers who are knowledgeable and dedicated. This being said, I think it’s very important to use equipment like the Evolt 360 and take advice that is backed by sound science.
“The results I get from my Evolt body scans mean I don’t need to separately verify or check against other results. They are the one baseline that I will use going forward to assess how well I’m progressing toward my goal. An Evolt 360 body composition analysis provides me with all the metrics I need to try and shape my health to get the best results.”
Marcus’ Insights Into Body Composition
Having lost 20kg between October 2022 and January 2023, Marcus feels his overall health and general attitude has significantly increased. He is more confident with how he looks and feels in clothing, can walk further and further without getting out of breath, and the journey has made him appreciate how far he’s come.
“I realized how much work I really put it into it all when the guys at the gym had me hold a 20kg plate for a picture. It was only then I realized how much I had to lose that weight, as carrying that amount around had a significant impact on my body,” he says.
“There’s a wealth of information and resources available these days, but for some of us, whilst we know it’s all out there, taking that first step is always the hardest. Everyone has their own motivations and reasons for wanting change, but I’d say that if you’re unsure, reach out to people and tell them what you want to do. You’ll always find someone willing to help and get you started.”
“Celebrate every success and be around people who don’t berate you for making mistakes or having time off your goals to live your life.”
