COVID is endemic. What a colossal bummer.

What does that mean for you?

COVID has shown us how important it is to take good care of your health. It’s no secret that people with conditions such as heart disease and obesity faced much more serious illness during the pandemic.

With COVID here to stay, the time to focus on your health is now.

And with health more important than ever, here are 5 surprising new ways to use your BodySpec scans to change your health for the better.

1. Reward yourself not for results - but for showing up.

It’s tempting to only scan when you think you’ll get good results. This is a mistake.

Good results are wonderful - but those moments can be short-lived. When it comes to your health, it’s your long-term trajectory that matters.

We believe that with health, you deserve a reward for just showing up. Because regardless of your results on any single scan, if you keep showing up for your health, it will improve.

So make your scan appointments rewarding. One client shared that he and his girlfriend always follow their scans with a date at their favorite brunch spot - no matter what the results are. What an awesome idea!

And if you’re a member, we’ll reward you for showing up to each scan by giving you a snazzy gift each time!


2. Use monthly scans like a safety net, to limit how far off the wagon you’ll fall.

If you’ve ever asked yourself why we have clients that come in every month, this is why.

The earlier you know that your health is going in the wrong direction, the less likely you can ignore it, and the earlier you can do something about it.

A monthly scan appointment is a monthly dose of truth. How far off the wagon can you really fall if you see your numbers every month?

It’s always better to know. It’s difficult to ignore data when it stares you right in the face.

Use that to your advantage. Regular BodySpec clients do - and that's why they get better results.

3. Speak to a kind, non-judgmental friend for advice.

Did you know that there’s no limit to the number of times you can join a BodySpec Health Hangout?

If you've got questions about your scan, we’re here for you.

Join a Health Hangout to sanity-check your goals and to get a fresh take on your plans. Sometimes it helps to hear someone else’s perspective to get you un-stuck and re-committed.

4. Scan with a friend.

Are you the kind of person who will never break a promise to a friend - even if you break promises to yourself?

If so, make your health journey a shared one and include a friend or family member. Having a buddy will help you stay more motivated and consistent.

BodySpec’s memberships make it easy to share monthly credits. Make your scans a regular date with your pal every couple of months - or bring the whole family in every quarter to strengthen your commitment to health together.


5. Make your approach to health proactive - not reactive.

Everybody is unique - and so is every body. The same program or advice won’t work for everyone.

When it comes to your health, you can try something and see what happens afterward. Or, you can get the data about your body’s needs first, and make an informed decision about your approach.

Since your DEXA results are unique to your body, use them to make informed decisions. The first scan is always illuminating - but ultimately it’s the follow-up scans that provide the feedback about whether you got closer to your goal.

So don’t skip the follow-up scan. And don’t skip the remote consultation - our team will help you put that data to good use.

We’re not here to judge what you have or haven’t done since 2020. We’re here to help.

Sign up for your next scan and come see us!
