COVID-19 Delivery Information

Yes, we are still able to provide contactless delivery to customers who are in lockdown / self-isolation but we must follow guidelines to protect our staff and members of the community. Following recent government and health guidelines, we have implemented additional measures with our delivery drivers, service technicians and retail staff for delivery of equipment and boxed parcels. If you are in self-isolation due to overseas travel, infection or have been in contact with an infected person - you must notify our delivery co-ordinator of this before we attend your home, as we may need to reschedule your appointment to take measures that minimise the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.

In line with the above we are now offering a ‘contactless’ delivery option to your doorstep, where we will notify you when we have delivered your order but remain nearby to ensure you receive it. It will be your responsibility to move the item into your house/apartment. We are able to arrange delivery of both new boxed items (Australia Wide), and assembled rental products (Metro Perth, Mandurah & Bunbury) to our customers door-step. Please be aware that a non-assembled product in a large box could be challenging to get it into the house by yourself and will take in some cases more than one person to do this safely.

If you have any questions you can contact us on 6241 3050 or email eshop@orbitfitness.com.au.

Standard Delivery Time:

Items typically leave within 2-3days of payment processing. Delivery is normally made within 1-7days of despatch but please allow up to 14 days from receiving your confirmation of despatch email.

For heavier items, if the customer is not available to assist the driver and the customers delivery location has access difficulties, the shipping company may need to use a truck with a tailgate. This may incur an extra charge that will be the responsibility of the customer to pay. However we do our best to avoid these situations. • Delivery is to front door, ground level only. If you have any questions relating to delivery and or installation please fill out the inquiry form here or contact us on 6241 3050 or eshop@orbitfitness.com.au

What is a Skinfold Caliper

A skinfold Caliper is a device which measure the thickness of a fold of skin with its underlying layer of fat. By doing this at key locations, shown by research to be representative of the total amount of fat on the body it is possible to estimate the total % bodyfat of a person. Skinfold Calipers have springs which exert a certain pressure on the skinfold and an accurate scale which measures the thickness in millimetres.
 

The Importance of % Bodyfat and Body Composition

By monitoring % Bodyfat & weight regularly, there are many things a person can learn about their fitness. 
People cannot tell by simply weighting themselves and looking a a height-weight chart what their % bodyfat is of if they are overfat or underfat. Height-weight charts are based on averages and only about 50% of the population conforms to the averages on the charts. The charts make no allowances for muscle development and most people don’t really know what their frame size is. The only way to determine the amount of fat on a person's body is by actual measurement of their % bodyfat.
 
The way to reduce weight properly is through lots of exercise combined with a proper, well-balanced diet. In this way it is possible to actually gain muscle tissue while losing fat. Measuring bodyfat regularly will determine the effectiveness of the exercise-diet program being used.
