Fitness Traits Reports
If you've ever wondered why certain fitness regime doesn't work for you, this is the time to find out. Your genes can influence your athletic performance, muscle properties and injury risk.
What You'll Discover
You will receive sport-specific insights and personalized recommendations different traits related to muscle potential, performance and recovery ability.
Achilles Tendon ProtectionNew
Achilles tendon (AT) is essentially a tissue that attaches to the back of your calf muscles and connects to the back of your heel bone. Your genetic disposition can influence your achilles tendon protection levels.
Aerobic Exercise CapacityNew
Your genetic predisposition can influence your body’s ability to perform aerobic exercises.
Anaerobic Exercise CapacityNew
Anaerobic exercise capacity is the body’s ability to carry out intense physical activities within a short period of time.
Body Temperature During ExerciseNew
Great changes in body temperature during exercise may lead to heat exhaustion. Your genes can influence how your body temperature changes during exercise
Sensitivity to caffeine determines how quickly your liver metabolises caffeine, which also influences the quality of exercise recovery, training and preparation for sports competitions or general training.
Glucose Response To ExerciseNew
Your genes can influence the effect of the exercise on your blood glucose level, which reflects how responsive your body is to the beneficial health effects of lifestyle interventions.
Joints are the meeting point between two bones in your body, which allow your skeleton bones to move in a flexible manner. Your genes can influence your risk levels in getting joint injuries or osteoarthritis.
Lactate threshold is the point at which lactate starts to accumulate in the blood over a period of time. It is also the most common factor that can limit your physical activity performance.
Lactate or lactic acid is a highly dynamic metabolite that can be used to fuel cells in skeletal muscles and the heart during physical exercise. Your genes can determine the lactate transport rate in your body, which influences how soon you feel muscle fatigue.
Lean Body MassNew
Lean body mass (LBM) consists primarily of skeletal muscle, which is an important contributor to physical strength, mobility, stamina and balance.
Ligaments are tough and dense bands of fibrous tissue that connect ends of bones to form a joint. Having higher ligament protection would mean lower risks in sustaining ligament injuries.
Maximum Oxygen UptakeNew
Your genetic predisposition in maximum oxygen uptake, which is also known as the total capacity of oxygen uptake and utilisation during high intensity exercises.
Muscle Cell Mitochondrial FunctionNew
In the mitochondria, chemical energy from the food we eat is transformed into an energy form that the cell can use. Having high mitochondrial function would mean that more energy would be generated during exercise.
Your genetic predisposition in experiencing muscle soreness after exercising.
Stress fracture is the condition in which one of your bones has tiny cracks that are caused by overuse, such as jumping up and down repeatedly or running for long distances.
Discover whether your genes affect your VO2Max, which is usually linked to aerobic endurance that many athletes use to determine their overall fitness and it can be a predictor of your potential as an endurance athlete.
Do you enjoy endurance sports? You can always improve if you work hard and smart. Find out if you have certain genetic variants similar to other endurance athletes.
Muscle Power & Strength
Your predisposition to being able to perform power exercises, and your predisposition to having high or low muscle strength.
Your predisposition to having high or low tolerance toward pain.
Sports Recovery Ability
Your recovery from exercise training is an important part of your overall training program and is essential for optimal performance and improvement.

Genes are the bits of DNA that give our cells their marching orders. They make up who we are at our most basic cellular level, and the billions of cells we are born with play an incredibly important role in our health. Each gene is comprised of multiple combinations of four letters that make up your genetic code - Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Cytosine (C) and Guanine (G). Most genes contain the information required to make protein for your body to develop and function.
A single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is a DNA sequence variation that occurs when a single nucleotide - A, T, C, or G in the genome differs between members of a species or paired chromosomes in an individual. These variants can be potential biological markers, helping researchers to locate genes associated with certain conditions and diseases.
There are many steps that we need to take to ensure that we provide the most accurate reports from your DNA, from checking if your saliva sample contain enough DNA, to processing your DNA for SNPs. The whole process should take about 6-8 weeks once we've received the saliva sample from you.
Our reports comes with easy-to-understand explanation and recommendations, to ensure that you get the best experience and understanding out of your trait reports.
