TYPICAL VALUES FOR BODY FAT RESULTS
The gold standard for body fat is underwater weighing; however, most people do not have easy access to an exercise physiology lab to have this test performed. The guidelines from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and American Council on Exercise (ACE) are listed below but are not age-adjusted. Once you have your results from the Tonus Body Mass Calculator, you can use the tables to see if you are comfortable with your status or if you want to make changes with your body.
These values are just guidelines compiled for reference only. As you age, the acceptable level of body fat increases. There is no recognized or government sanctioned agency to approve body fat % categories. Please consult a physician if you are concerned about your results.

HOW TO MEASURE BODY FAT TECHNIQUE
Please read the section HOW TO WORK YOUR WARRIOR® DIGITAL BODY MASS CALIPER, so the
unit calculates properly.
NOTE: If you are obese or have dificulty grabbing a skinfold, it is recommended to use the
Navy tape measure method with the Orbitape® Body Tape Measure and the Tonus® Body Mass
Calculator from Sequoia Fitness Products USA resellers: www.sequoia tness.com/wheretobuy.html.
1. Note that all skinfold measurements are taken on the right side of the body, and standing
upright and relaxed.
2. Place the caliper in your right hand.
3. With your ngers about 2 3 inches apart, gently grasp the rst skinfold with the thumb and
index nger of your left hand. Then pull the skinfold away from your body.
4. With your right hand, place caliper tips over the skinfold 1 cm (about 1/2 inch) away from
thumb and nger, perpendicular to the skinfold. The caliper heads should be halfway
between crest and base of fold.
5. Gently begin to apply caliper pressure. Keep the fold elevated, and maintain the pinch with
your thumb and index nger as you allow the force sensors in the caliper tips to take the
reading and stabilize.
6. The unit will beep after storing the reading in a second or 2.
7. Hit ENTER to advance to the next measurement site, or UP to clear the reading.
8. Repeat the procedure for the remaining skinfold sites.
Once you have taken one reading for each required skinfold site, repeat the procedure for each site. If
the second reading is more than 1 2 mm apart from your rst reading, take another measurement (by
pressing the UP button rst to clear the measurement) until you can be consistent. You want to have
consistent readings for the unit to give you the most accurate results.
