About Us


DexaFit for Beginners

Maybe you first heard about us from a friend who you couldn’t recognize after they tried a new diet, or learned about Dexa when you read about it in Tim Ferriss’ The 4-Hour Body, or saw Matt Lauer get a Dexa scan on NBC’s Today Show.

Whatever it was that brought you here – losing 30 pounds and a few inches from your waist, shaving 15 minutes off your triathlon time, or adding more lean muscle to look and feel great – our technology has several layers of game-changing benefits that will make it easier for you to perform better, think faster, and live better using a proven blend of citizen science and innovative new technologies.

Our Story

DexaFit co-founders Adam Kadela and Matt Ulrich first discovered the value and importance of regular biometric testing to get fit, stay healthy and improve performance when they met in college. 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.

In order to compete at a highest level possible, they 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 this 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."

How DexaFit Works

When you visit a DexaFit location, you'll only get access to advanced medical-grade technology and services.

Combining predictive fitness and health testing, we offer access to progressive health experts and intuitive data visualizations that track your health and fitness information over time.

This means your get feedback that's engaging, meaningful, and actionable.

Our locations provide you an all-in-one solution to transform your body, health and fitness with science.  We're a one stop shop for fitness assessments, biometric screenings, and state-of-the-art technologies that include:

  • Body Composition Analysis using DXA technology (sometimes called a DEXA scan) 
  • Vo2max Cardio Fitness and Metabolic Health Testing with the same technology used by leading hospitals, sports labs, and research centers, including the Mayo Clinic     
  • Blood Panel, Microbiome, and Genetic screenings that are convenient, flexible, and powerful
  • Engaging reports and dashboards of your results to show you what everything means and how to apply them  
  • Easy access to a network of wellness professionals and leading experts

Measuring your progress with this kind of technology is unique and rare because it gives you access to technology and feedback usually only available at hospitals and professional athletic facilities.

Our mission is to change this and make health and fitness testing accessible, efficient, and effective. We want to go beyond the frenzy of fads and take a deeper look at the state of science around the most pressing health and fitness questions of the day.

Similar to the “You are here” arrows on maps or mall directories, our technology's data and feedback acts as beacons or guideposts along your journey to optimal health and performance.
