Target Body Fat

Keep a record of each client's estimated body fat. This is very useful information for you to track the success of the exercise program you have prescribed. It will also give you insight about changes you feel may be necessary. Knowing a person's body fat will help you determine a more realistic target body fat and body weight for them. For instance, let's assume you have a 30-year-old female client who weighs 135 lb and is 28% body fat. The actual fat weight for this person is 135 X .28 = 38 lb. Her lean body weight is 72% or 135 X .72 = 97 lb. If you set the initial body fat goal at 24% (which is 76% lean body weight), you can calculate her ideal body weight by simply dividing her current lean body weight (97 lb) by the prescribed lean body percentage (76%); 97 ÷ .76 = 128 lb. Therefore, to reach this new body fat level she needs to lose 7 lb of body fat. The following table summarizes the steps for calculating target body fat and target body weight.
