Tanita TBF-Series User Modes


Adult Mode 

For adults aged 18 and older who have moderately active to inactive lifestyles.

Athlete Mode 

Special calibration for very fit adults. 

Tanita's "athlete" is someone who gets about 10 hours a week of intense physical activity (this can be exercise, work or leisure related). "Athletes" also have a resting heart rate of about 60 beats per minute or less. 

The mode includes people who have been very fit for years, but currently exercise less than 10 hours per week. 

It does not include "enthusiastic beginners" who recently started making a real commitment to exercising 10 hours per week, but whose bodies have not yet changed enough to qualify for the Athlete mode. 


Wrestler Mode 

Special mode for wrestlers, available on the TBF-300.

Nearly all wrestlers reduce their weight at one time or another.  Some do so with little if any risk to their health, while others put themselves at much higher risk by reducing their muscle mass, fat mass and hydration levels to dangerously low levels.  Due to health risks and lack of guidelines necessary to help coaches monitor each athlete's weight loss, the NCAA established recommendation.

The 1996 ACSM Position Stand "Weight Loss in Wrestlers," as adopted by the NCAA, recommends the following minimum body fat percentages: 5% for Collegiate Athletes and 7% for High School Athletes.

Athletes whose body fat percent falls below these standards may not be permitted to wrestle.  Since individual state wrestling associations may have standards that differ from the NCAA, we recommend you check with your association for their specific guidelines.

When activated, wrestler mode calculates the "Minimum Wrestling Weight" at a predetermined body fat percentage.  These results can be printed out. 


Goal Setter Feature:

A powerful educational and motivational tool that helps focus weight management efforts on reducing unhealthy fat instead of just 'losing weight'.  

The Goal Setter feature is used to calculate the fat mass that should be lost or gained to achieve a pre-selected target body fat percentage.  Just enter a target body fat percentage and the Goal Setter feature will instantly quantify the exact amount of fat mass that must be gained or lost to reach the specified goal.  By helping to set realistic goals, build enthusiasm and increase compliance, the in-depth body composition information on the printout provides professionals with a powerful tool to guide weigh management programs.  There is simply no better way to incorporate such important health-related information and guidance for physicians, coaches and professional trainers.
