A body fat caliper it takes measurements from 5 to 7 places on the body.. Cheaper than those scales gyms use- not allowed to use them when having period as they warp the readings.. They can't tell between loss skin or fat either...

I had mine done at my local gym for 15 bucks.

If the person doing the test is experienced, having your body fat tested using skinfold calipers is a fairly accurate way to estimate that's easily accessible. Most gyms offer that test for a small fee.

I have been asking that too. It appears as though what DRAGONCHILDE said is totally correct. I wish there was a cheaper way to do it!

I don't think there's an online too you can use for an accurate reading. YOu need to have that checked by a pro, either a doctor or a trainer with the appropriate tools.

Does anyone know of a good calculator or tool I can use to figure out my body fat percentage? I tried using my brother's handheld calculator, or whatever it's called, and it thinks my body fat percentage is 19%, but online tests think it's 33% and I know I'm not either of those.

What do you use to calculate your body fat? I really want to figure mine out. Thanks.
