Consultations

At Bites we understand that one on one consultations in a clinic may not suit everyone.  We offer a range of service options in order to provide everyone with access to quality health services that they deserve.

ONE ON ONE CONSULTATIONS

(DIETITIAN OR EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGIST)

(Initial – 50 mins)                                                                $119.60

(Review – 30 mins)                                                              $ 67.60

BODY FAT/ SKINFOLD TESTING

(BODY COMPOSITION ONLY ASSESSMENT)

$ 45.00

Benefits of skinfold testing: You get a measurable body fat change! Results are given in mm of body fat on 8 different body sites including biceps, triceps, shoulder blade, 3 points on the abdomen, thigh and calf. These numbers can be more meaningful and direct than other measures eg weighing on scales which don’t take into account gains in muscle mass in athletic populations or those beginning a resistance exercise program. Other methods used to predict body fat such as BIA scales estimate body fat through electrical conductivity and are prone to much error due to individual hydration levels and the calculations they use generally measure total body lipid not just fat tissue (this would include fat/oil that makes up membranes of all our body cells in our blood, bone etc). Skinfolds taken by trained anthropometrists deliver accurate and direct measures of your body fat. It is recommended to space sessions at least 2 weeks apart in order to see measurable changes as you change your training/nutrition.
