A Week Out from the Glass City Marathon

    We are just 8 days out from the running of the Glass City Marathon, 5 person Marathon Relay, Owens Corning Half Marathon and the 5K and I can't wait.  I am hoping, praying and crossing all my fingers and toes that the weather will cooperate and make for a great morning.  For those of you that may have questions about the event here is a link to the Glass City Marathon's Frequently Asked Questions page. (CLICK HERE)  This page will give you all the info you will need to be ready for race day.  If you have a question that just isn't answered via the FAQs page then while at the expo hit up the info booth and we will get you the answers you require.

The BOD POD Returns to the Glass City Health & Wellness Expo

Tests will be available at the expo for those who come prepared with proper apparel and $20.
The BOD POD — University of ToledoThe University of Toledo’s Department of Kinesiology offers BodPod Assessments for a fee of $20.00. Individuals must wear a cap that is provided at the time of the test, as well as a tight fitting bathing suit or spandex type shorts. Tests will be available at the expo for those who come prepared with proper apparel. For those interested in having their resting metabolic rate directly measured using indirect calorimetry, for a fee of $50.00, an appointment can be made with Barry Scheuermann PhD, Associate Professor Chair, Department of Kinesiology, Director, Cardiopulmonary and Metabolism Research Laboratory at 419-530-2692. This test takes about 60 to 90 minutes.
“The BOD POD Gold Standard Body Composition Tracking System is an Air Displacement Plethysmograph which uses whole-body densitometry to determine body composition (fat and fat-free mass) in adults and children. It is a complete turnkey system based on the same gold standard operating principle as hydrostatic (or “underwater”) weighing, except that the BOD POD uses patented Air Displacement Plethysmography, instead of water, for highly accurate, fast, and safe results. The BOD POD also offers information on Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) and Total Energy Expenditure (TEE) as an optional component of every body composition test.” This data is provided without requiring the subject to perform any additional testing maneuvers, and a complete assessment requires only about 15 minutes.
The roomy interior of the BOD POD accommodates a wide variety of human shapes and sizes, including those up to 7 feet tall and 550 pounds. This is because the unique egg-shaped design of the BOD POD maximizes interior space. This is why the BOD POD is used routinely for testing such a wide variety of subjects, including professional/collegiate athletes and sumo wrestlers! It’s also the exclusive body composition testing method of the NFL Scouting Combine. It can be used with most subject types, including special populations such as children, the elderly, the obese, and those with physical disabilities.
