Body Mapping Aids in Working Out

A lot of folks avoid the gym because they're out of shape, or are injured.

Now, there is a new high tech tool designed to keep all of us active, no matter what kind of shape we are in.

It is called the body map.

Here is how it works.

You stand in front of a grid screen while a series of digital pictures are snapped of you in a bunch of positions.

Then, a computer program analyzes the information.

Trainers can then develop a plan tailored to your needs, whether you have a back injury, or you are just new to working out.
Trainer Peter Donohoe says, “The routine they get is specific to them, specific to their goals and specific to their body because one size does not fit all.”

The body map was developed by the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

It costs about $125.00 per person it maps out.
