Our Story : )
DexaFit founders Adam Kadela and Matt Ulrich know the value and importance of regular biometric testing to get fit, stay healthy and improve performance. Both were starters and captains on the Northwestern University football team—Adam as a 6' 3", 240-pound middle linebacker and Matt as a 6' 2", 310-pound offensive guard. Matt went on to win Super Bowl XLI as a member of the 2006 Indianapolis Colts.
As top athletes, Adam and Matt had access to the world's best collegiate and professional sports labs behind the scenes to help them fine-tune their fitness programs, boost their performance on the field and maintain their overall health. They launched DexaFit in 2011 to bring that same pro-quality testing to amateur athletes, weekend warriors, stay-at-home moms and dads, and others who want to transform their lives by getting stronger, leaner, happier and healthier.
Most of our clients don't have an 'army of analysts' measuring and tracking their progress with the best available technologies. It's cost prohibitive but also overwhelming.
How do you know what metrics are the vital few vs. the trivial many?
We're trying to equip and empower our clients with the information and resources previously limited to elite athletes, professional teams, and sports science labs around the world. This way they can save time, money, and effort by learning what diets and workout programs are best for their bodies."

Joining the DexaFit team in early 2012, former client Vince Morris realized the profound impact of getting better data into the hands of people trying to upgrade their health and fitness. His addition helped grow DexaFit from a small office in Wrigleyville Chicago to the leading biometric and human performance testing company with five clinics in four states and plans to open at least five more locations through 2016.
My career in pharmaceutical sales has always been about selling medications to help fix damage done over time by our bad choices. Including my own. Now I help people avoid the drugs, long waits in doctors' offices, and regain healthier and happier lives.
