Train with Tanita

So how do you reach peak performance?

It's really not that hard. Promise.

Set your goals

Before you start training you need to decide what it is you want to achieve. Do you just want to work on increasing muscle mass? Or is reducing your body fat most important? Establish what will take priority.


Find the right balance

Once you’re clear on your aims, set specific targets for your hydration, fat and muscle levels. Then when you have started training, monitor your body composition. It’s important to continually track your progress as you go.

What you need to know

What you see in the mirror isn't the whole picture and it makes no sense for your health or for effective training to force an unnatural body weight. Instead, by monitoring and evaluating changes in your body composition you


By using a Tanita monitor you can set your baseline for each of your body composition measurements, then regularly monitor the changes to gain a valuable insight into how your body works. If you understand your natural baseline, you will be able to assess how your body responds to training and injury recovery, improve your performance and even identify your ideal pre-race physique.


As you train more, your weight may plateau even if your body fat percentage drops and your muscle mass increases. This will ultimately affect your hydration levels and Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and you


Motivation is key to success, whatever you want to achieve. Tanita monitors not only provide you with a true understanding of how your body is responding to your training or exercise regime, they are designed for use by more than one person. So why not get other members of the family or a running buddy to join you and start your journey to good health together?

Give your body what it needs

A little goes a long way

What about my diet?

It’s essential to have a sensible diet plan in place to ensure adequate refuelling and recovery, especially during intense training. The starting point of any nutrition programme is knowing what your daily calorie requirement is when at rest. This is your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Tanita monitors calculate your BMR, which you can use as a baseline for your diet. You can then add more calories according to how much physical activity you do each day.


Eat right

Popular diets might help you lose weight, but they are only a short-term solution and may not provide all the nutrients you need. A balanced diet has enough protein for tissue and cell replacement, enough carbohydrate for energy and the right amount of essential fats for forming cell walls and regulating metabolism. Your body also needs a range of vitamins and minerals and at least two litres of water or other low calorie drinks per day.
