Bod Pod facilities in the NY/ Metro Area
For anyone who is interested in getting their body fat composition tested via Bod Pod analysis in the NY City metro area, here are a couple of leads.
I understand that this device is highly reliable and is actually used at the NFL Combine for body comp testing:
1. Obesity Research Center
St. Luke's Hospital
1111 Amsterdam Avenue
Body Comp Lab: 212-523-4194 Cost: $125
The Bod Pod site also lists Brooklyn College as another testing center. However, even after placing numerous phone calls and e-mails to Brooklyn College, I have gotten no response from them.
2. Brooklyn College
718-951-4125 Cost: $75

This and DEXA scans are the 2 most reliable/convenient today. I do bod pod assessments often. Here's a locator...
Just a quick follow up and a word about Tanita "bathroom" scale / body comp accuracy. Got my Bod Pod test done yesterday at St. Lukes Med Cntr. Results were 14.4 % Went home and used my very old Tanita body comp scale to take a measurement .....result in "normal" mode.......14.5% I was pleasantly surprised and somewhat shocked at the accuracy. Thought this might be of interest to those who use Tanita home body comp scales and wondering about the accuracy.
Thank you for posting this information!)
