    I hear those are the most accurate and I want to know where exactly I'm at BF% wise. The gym only has the one where you hold it out in front of you and it sends a weak electrical signal. Where would I go that has the Hydro to measure bodyfat?

    A number of large universities have them for a nominal fee if you are close to one of those :dunno:

    This is a good place. Talk to someone in their kinesiology or sports medicine department. My school used to do it for free and just use it for training purposes for people doing practicums and similar classes for these programs.

    Well the thing is I don't go to college so I'm not really sure which Uni to go to. The only major ones that I can think of are UC Berkely or UC Davis. However those are kind of far away and I have no clue who to speak to.

    You can call and find out:
    UC Berkeley
    http://calbears.berkeley.edu/insidepage.aspx?uid=c2e2241c-b3ca-4190-b877-3917ecdd7301

    UC Davis
    http://campusrecreation.ucdavis.edu/fitness_wellness/facilities.php

    If either of them don't have it and I would be really surprised if Berkeley doesn't, someone at one of the two places could tell you where to go in your area.
