About BMI

Body Mass Index is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine body fat composition. This can give you insight into how weight affects your health - for both men and women. It's not perfect, though. Because of their unique compositions, BMI doesn't always work well for kids, competitive athletes, weightlifters, pregnant or nursing women, or frail or sedentary elderly persons.

Keep in mind, BMI is only one guideline you can use to determine your current fitness level. If you don't believe your results show the whole picture, see your doctor and ask for a more comprehensive physical exam.

What you can do
Even if you don't need to lose weight, you can still benefit from regular exercise through the Active Lifestyle program. If you haven't registered already, now is a great time to start.
