Your DNA and You.... One Test, a lifetime of change

 

There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” approach when it comes to nutrition and fitness and that’s because we are all different. In fact only 7% of diets actually work and everyone responds to training differently and at different rates! What works for you might not work for someone else, so why waste time with lengthy trial and error, going from one fad diet and exercise programme to another? 

The answer is in our DNA. With just one simple swab test you can reveal your own unique genetic abilities and predispositions, allowing you to better tailor your training, diet and lifestyle choices. It can all be done from the comfort of your own home, even the post test consultation!

Genetics play a vital role in determining who we are and using DNAFit will help you understand what your genetic makeup is and how you can use that to get a better you, whether that is to improve performance or just feel healthier. 

DNAFit is a bespoke genetically guided nutrition and training programme aiming to end the one size fits all approach to training and nutrition.  It tests 45 gene variants scientifically linked to a body’s capacity to respond to training and nutrition and provides detailed reports on how to alter your diet and exercise to meet your goals.

How DNAFit helped Olympic Athlete Jenny Meadows

Genetic testing can tailor training to improve performance as in the case of Jenny Meadows, British and Olympic 800m runner. After failing to run in the 2012 Olympics due to injury Jenny took a genetic test in 2014. The test found she had a high risk of injury and armed with this new information her coach began to modify the training, reducing the number of running sessions from 14 to 11 per week and replacing them with other methods of training where there was no body weight involved, still getting her CV element, but without the added risk of injuries.

The test also revealed her suitability to power and endurance events. It was almost equal meaning she’ll never be a Usain Bolt or a Paula Radcliffe but is well suited to her event, 800m running.
