About Us – Bodyscan Mission Statement

Bodyscan was the first – and remains the only – company in the UK dedicated solely to measuring body composition with DEXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry). It is Bodyscan’s mission to deliver professional excellence in the health and fitness industry and to always exceed the expectations of our customers. After more than 21,000 appointments, we continue to treat every customer as an individual, with warmth, respect, dignity and professionalism and our ethos is reflected in the growing number of exemplary reviews and word-of-mouth referrals. We invite you to experience Bodyscan for yourself.


Philip Chant

Director & Founder

Philip discovered DEXA as a customer when he lived in Sydney and realised his pale, British, skinny-fat body did not look good on Bondi Beach, even at night. DEXA scans provided the motivation to lose his pot belly and the hard data to ditch his expensive but ineffective personal trainer.

Inspired by the technology he returned to the UK to set up Bodyscan at the start of 2014, began operations in Marylebone a year later and established Bodyscan City near the Bank of England in November 2016. Phil performed every scan and consultation for 18 months and still prefers meeting clients to filling in spreadsheets.

Rob Webster


Rob brings huge experience in nutrition and the mechanics of body transformation and recomposition. When you meet him you will see he is a practitioner who clearly walks the talk.

Rob looks at body recomposition with an engineering mindset – he likes to develop a systematic and repeatable approach that is sustainable for clients in the long term. He believes that the key to great body composition is to develop great habits.

Whatever your current diet and physical goals, Rob can help you achieve them with a realistic and sustainable plan, and the motivation to keep you going.
