The LIFE Ascent Success Kit

The success kit is a key part of your health journey and is deeply integrated into the LIFE Ascent program. A few days after you sign up for LIFE Ascent, your success kit will arrive. The success kit will give you the tools you need to measure both your baseline and your progress throughout the program.

Includes

BLOOD PRESSURE METER

Blood pressure is a key component to your health. Over 45% of Americans have elevated blood pressure, or hypertension, which can cause heart disease, stroke, heart failure, aneurysm, vision loss, metabolic syndrome and dementia. The American Heart Association refers to high blood pressure as the “silent killer” as many people who have elevated blood pressure don’t even know it. This blood pressure cuff makes it easy to measure and monitor your blood pressure during and after the program. In conjunction with the cardiovascular biomarkers from the blood test, you will build a deep understanding of your cardiovascular health.

CONNECTED DIGITAL SCALE

Monitor your weight with regular weigh-ins that are automatically synced with LIFE Extend. Additionally, this connected scale will measure:

  • Body fat percentage
  • Subcutaneous fat
  • Visceral fat
  • Body water percentage
  • Skeletal Muscle percentage
  • Protein percentage
  • Muscle mass
  • Bone mass

This information, in conjunction with your blood test biomarkers and the LIFE Ascent content, will accelerate your health journey.

SPIROMETER

A spirometer is a device that measures the amount of air you breath in and out. This is important to understand your lung health and is used to diagnose diseases such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis and other diseases of the lungs. You will use the spirometer to understand and improve your lung capacity and health.

DYNAMOMETER

A dynamometer measures your grip strength which is an indicator for your musculoskeletal health. Research has shown that grip strength can predict physical disability later in life and improving your strength may prevent injury now and disability later.

CALIPERS & MEASURING TAPE

Calipers are used to measure the thickness of your subcutaneous fat. The measuring tape is used to measure your waist circumference. Excessive abdominal fat around your waist and subcutaneous fat distributed throughout your body places you at a higher risk for type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, coronary artery disease and certain cancers. Both of these devices, in conjunction with the blood biomarker tests, will make it easy to measure your progress towards a healthy level of fat in your body.
