Body composition

Body composition is a major component of health and physical fitness because total fat and the distribution of the fat are leading indicators of disease risks.

Classifications of fat levels determine the classification category an individual will fit into. If you decide or are asked to be tested for your percentage of fat make certain the comparison charts fit your age, gender, and activity levels otherwise the results will be skewed and not always in your favor.
