Body Composition Testing Mason Community Center Body composition testing is a good indicator of your fitness progress and is important in distinguishing between fat and lean body content that is not detectable on your scale. It also provides clues about your risk factors for certain diseases. Stop by the front desk during the days and times indicated to meet with one of our fitness specialists. This test is free to members and only $5 for non-members. Please know your height and weight when you come in for the test. For best results, do not eat, drink, or work out 1 to 2 hours prior to the test.
