What is the Bio-Wellness Index and How is it Calculated?

The Bio-Wellness Index (BWI®) score is a calculation based on the integrity of lean body mass versus total fat mass in order to provide 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 was invented by and is proprietary to Evolt.

Significant research exists supporting the importance of maintaining lean body mass in a fat loss scenario such as –

  • Increased metabolism of lean muscle assists with 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.

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 the World Health Organization standards. The purpose of the BWI® is to provide one simple metric as a measuring score of body composition health.

7 REASONS EVOLT MAKES SENSE FOR YOUR FACILITY

1.

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.

2.

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.

3.

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.

4.

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.

5.

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.

6.

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.

7.

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!

8.

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.
