Track your progress with our Styku Body Scanner

St. Louis area clients:  have you tried  the Styku Body Scanner in our Clayton studio yet? It’s a great, reliable way to pinpoint exactly where you’re losing inches and replacing body fat with lean muscle mass, and more.

How the Styku Body Scanner Works

A powerful camera creates a 3D image of your body that can be rotated and viewed from any angle.

Completing a body scan is quick and easy. You’ll be asked to stand on an automatic turntable in front of the scanner. The turntable will rotate 360 degrees while the scanner’s powerful 3D camera  creates an accurate 3D model of your body. The entirely non-invasive process takes less than a minute to complete.

Working with a trained 20 Minutes to Fitness professional, you will immediately review a 3D model of your body on a computer screen. A virtual measuring tape will show your measurements anywhere on the body. Body fat composition and other metrics will also be visually displayed.

Your first scan sets your benchmark. Subsequent scans allow you to monitor the changes in your shape and dimensions as your body responds to your fitness and nutritional regimen. You’ll be able to track your loss of inches over time; by comparing overlapping sections of your body from scan to scan, you can see for yourself exactly how and where your body is changing.

Try it! 20 Minutes to Fitness clients who purchase fitness packages can exchange individual fitness sessions for 30-minute body scan sessions. Individual and bundled pricing is also available.

St. Louis Magazine reporter Jeannette Cooperman visited 20 Minutes to Fitness’ studio in Clayton and tried about our 20-minute, once-a-week strength training workout herself.  Then she wrote an article about what she experienced.

Worried about osteoporosis? Then you should read what 20 Minutes to Fitness client Dorothy Menetre has to say!

I came to 20 Minutes to Fitness because I was bored with the routine of a “regular” gym. It had become monotonous, and I was totally “burned out.”

I enjoy the fact that I can now do 20 minutes, once a week, and I am finished. The benefit I was not expecting is that a recent bone density scan showed a slight improvement in my bone density over the past two years. That is really exciting for me, and it will keep me returning for my 20 minutes.

Thanks very much, 20 Minutes to Fitness!

Can you actually rebuild muscle mass after age 60?

At 20 Minutes to Fitness, we’ve been answering “YES” to this question for almost 15 years. And we’re not alone.  According to the doctor quoted in this New York Times article,

“…men and women in their 60s and 70s who began supervised weight training developed muscles that were as large and strong as those of your average 40-year-old.”
