BodyView (Windows) 

Open up in admin mode then  select client manager. Select the client you wish to delete and press the ‘delete client’ button.

BodyView Pro Fit

From the home screen select the profile tab and click on the ‘delete profile’ button, then search for the client and delete.


Open up the client profile then go to the profiles menu and select ‘delete client profile’.

What is Beginner and Advanced Mode?

Within the admin mode you get the choice of either beginner or advanced mode.

Beginner mode asks for at least 2 measurements per site which is ideal. But if these differ by more than 10% you will need to take a third measurement.

Advanced mode only asks for 1 measurement per site. This is for those who are comfortable taking accurate measurements.

We recommend that new users pick the beginner mode.

How do I choose athletic types?

Lean clients with little to no abdominal waist fat should labelled at Elite. Athletic is for an average looking client. They may have some extra abdominal body fat but are not what you would consider obese. Non-athletic is for individuals that have visible folds of body fat and appear to be obese.
