Body comp testing

During CFMakeover Finals next week, we'll remeasure body composition using a handheld monitor. But hydrostatic body composition testing is a more accurate method of testing.
If you'd like to invest the $30 to find out a more accurate body comp measurement, the Dunk Truck will be here next Wednesday, October 30th from 3 to 6:45p. Testing is $30.
Register here. Contact Rachel at Dunk Truck for more details: (678) 491-0109, rachel@dunktruck.com.
