BioPrint Assessment

BioPrint Has Revolutionized the Way We Eat, Live and Train

BioPrint Assessment Northbrook, IL | Progressive Sports Performance - 6626If you’re serious about fitness training, you’re probably familiar with BioSignature for body fat measurement.

BioSignature was the first evolution of body composition measurement that took into consideration the person’s hormonal profile. The concept of BioSignature was developed when Charles Poliquin, world renowned strength coach, started to notice trends and correlations between the body fat storage patterns and the hormonal profiles of his athletes. Coach Poliquin then teamed up with doctors worldwide to test his theory. It was found to be quite an accurate indication of hormonal profile abnormalities in athletes and the general population.

In 2014, Charles Poliquin rolled out his latest Body Composition Research and renamed the program "BioPrint". 

BioPrint contains skin folds beyond the original 11 that go even further into connecting hormonal struggles with body fat storage locations.

Can you give me an example of a site and what hormonal connection it has?

An example of this is the thickness of an individual’s umbilical skin fold and its direct reflection on their cortisol levels. Cortisol is the stress hormone and when an individual has a relatively fat midsection it indicates that their stress levels are either high or that their body is hindered in handling the stress response. Through BioSignature and BioPrint we can detect this and set up a program to correct it.

BioPrint Assessment Northbrook, IL | Progressive Sports Performance - 6628How do you correct sites (hormonal profile issues) once they are indicated by the BioPrint?

Once any hormonal discrepancies have been detected, PSP’s BioPrint and BioSignature Certified Staff will develop a program for you to correct these areas. Most programs will include directions for nutritional, lifestyle and supplemental changes and in some cases, further testing may be required.

What if my hormonal profile has multiple issues?

Ratios exist that will show us which discrepancies need to be addressed first. In the case of multiple hormonal profile issues, we will address them in the order of importance instead of an “all-at-once” technique. This is the preferred method, as often by correcting a more prominent issue, your body can correct some of the other discrepancies, on its own, without additional supplementation.

Other than improving my body composition, how will the BioPrint and BioSignature protocols help me?

By restoring your hormonal profile to an optimal level you will also see improvements in all areas of your life. This includes your physical performance, as well as your mental and physical health. By following your specific plan, you will become leaner, stronger, healthier and happier, living a new and energized life.

Working with PSP has changed my life!

"After a knee injury caused me to have surgery almost 2 years ago, I started working with PSP to help get back into shape. Since then, I have learned volumes about general fitness and clean eating. I am in the best shape of my life and feel great. I love the fact that, every time I go to PSP, I have a completely different workout, tailored to my specific needs and fitness goals. In addition, if my knee is bothering me again, or another event creates an injury (as when I fell down the stairs and hurt my shoulder), the coaches at PSP are ready with stretching and/or exercise suggestions to help the situation. They truly care about helping me to become the strongest and healthiest I can be. I recently competed in my first triathlon and finished with the best time I could have imagined, feeling strong and recovering easily."* Ann A. Winnetka, IL|Read More Testimonials
