BioSignature Explained

BioSignature goes beyond standard body fat testing and pinpoints your unique Biological signature through skinfold measurement.

The novel concept of Biosignature was developed by world-renowned strength coach Charles Poliquin after noticing trends and correlations while working with athletes for nearly 30 years. Biosignature is based on his theory that where people store their body fat is an indication of their hormonal profile.

For example, the thickness of a person’s umbilical skin fold is a direct reflection of cortisol (the stress hormone) output. A relatively fat midsection indicates stress levels are high and/or the ability to handle stress is low. The good news is that 1) it’s not your fault and, 2) it can be changed.

Your body fat levels and corresponding imbalanced hormones can be improved and effectively managed through a combination of diet, exercise, a targeted supplementation program and lifestyle modifications. Biosignature certified and experienced assessors will develop that plan for you based on your unique biological signature.

Your personal Biosignature plan is aimed to positively affect:
· Thyroid & Insulin
· Androgens & Growth Hormones
· Sleep & Energy Levels
· Body Composition (amount of lean versus fat mass)
· Overall health and well being!

The result is improved performance in ALL areas of your life – physical, mental and intellectual. By following the outlined plan you will emerge leaner, stronger, healthier, happier and more energetic.

How Long Does an Assessment Take?

The initial assessment takes approximately 30 minutes. The assessor then takes time to analyze the results and research the best plan to get you optimal results and any imbalanced hormones back on track. A full report with recommendations will be sent to you.

When Should I do Another BioSignature Assessment?

Ideally, you should have a follow up within 4 to 6 weeks to see how your hormones are responding and keep your positive progress and body composition changes going! Regular follows ups are recommended until you achieve your goal or hormones are restored to more normal levels. Follow ups take less time and the cost is reduced. Follow ups will be performed by your trainer in consultation with Krista.

How Long Before I Will See Results?

That depends on many factors from the type and duration of the hormonal imbalance, your activity level, lifestyle factors, compliance, how your body normally responds to changes and much more. Professional experience shows 99% of clients see positive results within 12 weeks and some in as little as a few days.

What is the Cost?

Initial - $250.00 for the assessment & comprehensive report and plan
Follow up - $100 for reassessment & updated plan (recommended in 4-6 weeks)

When is it being held?

Krista will be in Brisbane and performing assessments from Sunday 27th April thru Tuesday 29th April.
