This time of year, many people choose their new year’s resolutions to start working on. Individuals choose to focus on growth, wealth, school, and fitness as some examples. Here, at Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea, the 51st Operational Medical Readiness Squadron health promotion office utilizes the InBody machine, as a starting point to aid those on their new fitness journey.

The machine can determine a participant’s body fat percentage, muscle, water content and resting metabolic rate. The machine sends electrical currents through their hands and feet to calculate the results.

“The InBody is a great tool to assist jumpstarting anyone’s health goals,” said Troisha Busano, 51st OMRS health promotion program coordinator. “With the information it gives me, I’m able to help people with whatever they’re struggling with and give them recommendations to achieve their goals.”

To get the most accurate results customers are recommended to avoid eating and vigorous exercise two hours prior to their appointment.

“There’s never a wrong or right time to start focusing on your health,” said Busano. “I think the InBody empowers people to get started on that journey.”

Appointments can be made Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. with the 51st OMRS health promotion office. For more information on the InBody, contact Troisha Busano at 315-784-4261.
