Editor’s Review


Weight management is something most of us struggle with, if the stark statistics are anything to go by. The fight to gain a healthier weight is one we all share in, and regardless of whether we are trying to gain it or lose it, one thing remains constant- that we all need a body weight scale to monitor our progress.

In the fitness universe, it is often recommended that you should focus on the changes that you see. While this might apply to those who are trying to gain weight, or achieve a more cut physique, it excludes the rest of us who are trying to lose it. A scale is more reasonable, since it tells of the changes that we cannot see.
