The Top 10 Reasons to Increase Skeletal Muscle Mass

Find out the top 10 reasons to increase Skeletal Muscle Mass and the Importance of Lean Body Mass for Overall Immune Health.

Most people are under the misconception that going to the gym to increase skeletal muscle mass is just for the recreational bodybuilder or athlete. The reality is that increasing skeletal muscle mass has a more important role in supporting immune health and preparing your body in times of sickness and disease. Illness and disease increase the body’s need for protein in order to heal. Often times the protein needs are far beyond what we can get from our daily diet, thus the breakdown of muscle mass occurs to meet the increased protein requirement. Individuals with lower levels of muscle mass will have greater difficulty meeting the demands caused by illness, therefore rates of healing and recovery are reduced significantly.

Whilst we are all aware of the importance of skeletal muscle mass for combating obesity and reducing your risk of diabetes and insulin resistance, the impact on overall health and wellbeing is a reality check for everyone in light of the recent coronavirus pandemic.

Tracking body composition isn’t just for the health and fitness enthusiast, it is for absolutely everyone to at least establish a baseline as part of a preventative health plan.

Our mission at Evolt is to educate people with the knowledge of their body composition, in the interests of improving overall health and wellness.

Increasing Skeletal Muscle Mass

See the Top 10 reasons supporting the increase of skeletal muscle mass –

  • Increased metabolism of lean muscle assists with the reduction of obesity.
  • Increased muscle glycogen (carbohydrate) storing capacity for exercise.
  • Maintaining muscle over the lifespan can aid in reduction in obesity and weight gain as a result of aging (in presence of sarcopenia).
  • Improved ability to tolerate high-stress environments.
  • Improved responses to critical illness and disease.
  • Decreased osteoporosis.
  • Improved bone density.
  • Improved independence and activities of daily living in older adults.
  • Decreased risk of falls in older adults.
  • Protection against injury from bumps and knocks.

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.
