Who is Bod Pod?

Bod Pod is one of the revolutionary products made by COSMED, the Metabolic Company. Founded in 1980, with global headquarters in Rome (Italy), COSMED is a privately-owned company manufacturing Cardio Pulmonary, Metabolic and Body Composition diagnostic equipment.

Since its foundation, COSMED’s primary goal has always been to improve the quality of its products and services through innovation and superior customer service.

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 and can accommodate a wide range of populations.

A full test requires only about 5 minutes, and provides highly accurate, safe, comfortable, and fast test results. Each BOD POD Gold Standard is a complete turnkey system with a dedicated computer system, the ability to measure thoracic gas volume (TGV), and data management capabilities.

While all of this sounds a bit technical, it means that this body fat test is thoroughly researched and made by people who know what they are doing. It is simple, accurate and will get you on the right body track immediately!


Bod Pod locations are all over, but we are the only one in Townsville, so if you live, work or work out in this area, we are the one for you. We have so many customers happy by enlightening them about their bodies and opening up avenues for where they can go next.

Medical Research & Applications

With the prevalence of Bod Pod’s in many major universities and research hospitals in Australia and the United States, doctors and research scientists are using the Bod Pod to provide their patients with accurate reporting and tracking. This has played an important role in providing information relating to weight management in both obese and underweight individuals and the appropriate management plans.

Sports & Fitness Applications

Body composition and weight management results for athletes need to viewed as part of a well-executed diet and training plan. Strength and Conditioning Coaches and Sports Dieticians require this information to ensure that both amateur and professional athletes alike meet their full potential. The Bod Pod provides these professionals the ability to do so and tracks the changes over time.

My philosophy on

Fitness & Nutrition

I like to keep nutrition simple! Eat abundance of veggies, lean meats, good fats, and quality carbs. Keeping nutrition natural and organic, will ensure your body and hormones are happy during your health and fitness journey.

As far as training goes; train hard and focus on building as much muscle as you can. I’m very proud of all of my clients who weight-train or work to transform themselves. It certainly isn’t the easiest of sports to do.


Your Bod Pod Assessor

Paula Pool

I have been in the fitness industry for 16 years. I started out training my friends and family, and then slowly moved into clients once the results were happening with friends. I train people from many walks of life – rehab, older people, young people, all types of sporting backgrounds, general weight loss and body transformations as well as competitive body builders.

Not only am I a coach to many I also now specialize in Bod Pod assessments.

I love weight training/body building and working on fitness levels. I love that it is both a mental and physical process, and that it stretches and tests you as a person. I love feeling strong and watching all the hard work unfold when you tie the training with a good nutrition plan.

More than anything I love passing my knowledge and advise onto others that require some help reaching their full potential.

Training people and watching them transform not just physically but mentally is just magic. Watching someone who would normally be self-conscience about their bodies become more confident in their skin is fantastic. I just love being able to be part of their journey. It’s an absolute honour to me.

I see the potential in people where they don’t. I know what the body and mind are capable of…. It’s my job to make them see it as well.
