The recent explosion in genetic science has revealed new connections between genes and exercise trainability. To fulfill your fitness or sporting objectives, it can therefore be extremely important to make the appropriate choices to best match your unique genetic make-up. By helping you understand how genetic profile affects you, Fitness Pro DNA provides an insight and knowledge to help you optimize your physical health and fitness.
What does your Fitness Pro DNA Training Report Tell You?
Endurance / Power Profile
Reveal your body's response to key genes associated to power or endurance potential. Understand how best to train for your body, whatever your personal goal may be.
Aerobic Potential (VO2 Max)
VO2 max is the most commonly used marker for endurance potential, we can help you understand your genetic VO2 max potential.
Everybody has a different recovery ability - understand what your genes say about your natural recovery speed, and how to plan your exercise regime accordingly.
get to know your body's genetic need for certain vitamins and micronutrients. Learn how this can help you manage your recovery strategy after hard exercise.
Some people are more genetically prone to injury than others, we help you identify where your genes put you on the injury risk scale.

Understanding Your Fitness Pro DNA Genetics
Our Fitness Pro DNA report is designed for people of any fitness level. Whether your are an absolute beginner just wanting to train the best way for your body or a professional athlete seeking that extra edge, our report can help you.
What You Will Learn From Your Personal Training Genetic Report
By identifying and analyzing your unique pattern of genetic characteristics, it becomes possible to adjust your training, diet and lifestyle to match needs for success in exercise and sport
Remember: Your genes cannot change, but your lifestyle can.
So what exactly is the DNAFit Fitness Report?In the fitness report, we look at genes that can impact how well you respond to training, how quickly you recover, and how likely you are to get injured.
What does Power / Endurance mean for me:
This is an indication of where your genetics results fall on the power / endurance spectrum. This does not change your fitness or sporting goals - rather it should help you understand how best for you to reach that goal.
Why test Aerobic Potential (VO2 Max):
Your body needs oxygen when exercising. VO2 max is a test used by scientists to measure the maximum or optimum rate at which an individual's body can effectively use oxygen during exercise. The DNA test determines your tendency towards a high or low scale.
When exercising, some people are lucky enough to recover very quickly - ready to exert themselves again after very little rest, whereas others don't seem to bounce back quite as fast, need a longer break between hard training bouts. Research has shown that certain genetic variations infer a delayed recovery from hard exercise training; those with these markers should take extra care with their training plan and nutrition strategy.
Recovery Nutrition: Every time you push your body through exercise, you can cause inflammation and oxidation stress in your cells. It is important to refuel and repair your muscles so your body is ready for the next event or training session. If you neglect post- exercise nutrition support and recovery time, you risk running low on energy during your next exercise session and harming your overall training plan.
Though of course injury is always a default risk when undertaking any form of exercise, some people do appear to be more predisposed to injury than others, and some of this is based on genetics. Scientific evidence has shown that certain genetic variations can affect injury risk; those with a higher genetic injury risk may need to adjust their training plan to include injury prevention sessions than the average person.
What You Will Learn From Your Personal Diet DNA Genetic Report
The report provides your results and any additional information you need to know in order to make informed modification to your diet and lifestyle to help improve your health and wellbeing.
Your Optimal Diet Type
What diet suits your body: Your DNA test will revel which out of the five diets types we recommend suit your genetic DNA, this helps optimize your nutritional plan.
Carbohydrate & Saturated Fat
Your DNA test gives two markers; firstly, how your body reacts to saturated fat intake in regards to weight management, and secondly your overall general health in regards to cholesterol.
This tests your body's ability to detoxify harmful chemical taken on in your diet. This refers to the biological process that takes place in the liver.
Your genes can show you how strong your natural protective systems are for removing free radicals, and from this you can change your diet accordingly.
Personal Vitamins & Micronutrients Needs
Vitamins help you regulate and strength your body, discovering vitamin and micro-nutrient needs will help your body to stay fit and strong.
Salt, Alcohol & Caffeine
By understanding your own individual sensitivity to these ingredients, you can make informed choices about your own personal intake.
Lactose is not digested as normal, but instead is fermented by gut flora - creating gas that can cause discomfort, pain and diarrhea. Is your DNA putting you high in the scale.
Coeliac disease is relatively common digestive condition that occurs when a person has an adverse reaction to gluten. Your DNA results can show you if you are more likely a suffer or not.

Remember: Your genes cannot change, but your lifestyle can.
When looking at your sensitivity to carbohydrates, what we’re saying is that the more sensitive you are to carbohydrates, the more likely you are to develop type-II diabetes or gain excess fat with a high level of simple carbohydrates in your diet. In essence, the higher your sensitivity to carbohydrates, the more you want to focus on fruits and vegetables as the main source of carbohydrate in your diet.
Lactose: With the lactose intolerance portion of our test, we’re looking at a gene called LCT, which determines whether you can produce lactase, the enzyme that digests lactose, into adulthood. Approximately 65% of the world’s population lose the ability to produce this enzyme after weaning, although this number is lower in the UK and the US – closer to 10%. If you have at least one T allele for this gene, you have the genetic ability to produce lactose, which means we would class you as lactose tolerant. However, it is possible that you have secondary lactose intolerance, which can be due to a number of other things, including IBS. You might also be intolerant or sensitive to some of the protein found in milk, most commonly casein.
In the alcohol sensitivity section of our report, we’re looking at how quickly you can metabolise alcohol. We split people into two different groups; slow metabolisers and fast metabolisers. Fast metabolisers break down alcohol quicker, so it’s present in their blood for a shorter period of time, whilst in slow metabolisers it’s present for longer. Research suggests that slow metabolisers who consume moderate amounts of alcohol get a cardiovascular protective effect from this alcohol – the type of people for whom a glass or red wine a day might be good for. This effect isn’t present, or at least is reduced, in people who are fast metabolisers of alcohol. So it doesn’t mean alcohol is bad for you, just that it’s perhaps not as good as it is for slow metabolisers.
Thes are just a few examples of what is covered in your Fitness Pro DNA report.
