Cirque du Soleil is one of the most famous theater production companies in the world. The company began in 1984 with a small troupe of performersnear Quebec City and quickly became renowned for its striking mix of circus arts (without animals) and street performance. Now in its third decade, Cirque du Soleil has 19 shows that perform around the world. Each brings a blend of imaginative costumes, lighting, music, and of course, gravity-defying performers.
To ensure talented performers can withstand an incredible 476 shows per year on average, the Cirque du Soleil team needed a reliable way to incorporate body composition analysis to support performance.
Head of Performance Science for Cirque du Soleil’s, Bryan Burnstein researched several options and ultimately decided on tracking body composition analysis using InBody because he felt it delivered the most value to his artists and operational teams. See how InBody helped some of the world’s most talented actors, singers, and artists become more durable performers by optimizing their body composition.

According to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, the percentage of children with obesity in the United States has more than tripled since the 1970s. Today, about one in five school-aged children (ages 6–19) has obesity.
There's a big difference among the options of being big boned, overweight, and being considered obese, but most Americans don't really know the defining differences. It can be hard to tell by looking, or even by standard measurements, if someone is teetering on the edge of being overweight into the realm of obesity. This is where InBody comes to the rescue.
There’s an oft-used saying that “abs are made in the kitchen.”
The underlying theory, for those who haven’t heard this before, is that what you eat is more important than how much you exercise if you want to see your abdominal muscles.
How much truth is there to this mantra? Are abs really made simply by watching what you eat? Or can you just do a thousand crunches a day and create abs that way?
