Should you do power exercises, endurance exercises or both? Do you have genes which make it easier for you to become an elite athlete? Do you have a greater lean body mass potential because of your genes? Are you at greater risk for joint injury, ligament tears, or muscle cramps? Should you add more flexibility training into your exercise program?
Explore your unique exercise needs based on the analysis of more than 8,000 genetic variations!
The 28 trait reports provide risk assessments, trait explanations, and recommendations. In each report, you will discover which genetic variations contribute to your predisposition and learn about the scientific basis for your assessment. You will also receive recommendations based on your assessments and resources to further inform your decision-making.

Have you wondered why some people respond to an aerobic workout routine by becoming incredibly fit, while others who exercise just as hard see little progress? The benefit you receive from exercise depends strongly on genetic factors.
Discover how your genetic variations affect your response to exercise.
Though regular exercise provides tremendous health benefits, it's important to consider injury risks before beginning a training program. Your genetics influence how our tendons, ligaments, and joints are structured. These differences can produce unique joint or muscular vulnerabilities. Genetics can also influence how much discomfort you experience both during and after exercise — increasing muscle cramps and soreness or slowing muscle repair. Awareness of your unique risks can help you protect yourself from injury when implementing an exercise program.
Explore how your genetic variations may influence your injury risk, recovery time, and discomfort during exercise.
Power and Strength Exercises
The muscular system is responsible for the movement of the human body, maintenance of posture, and generation of body heat. Your muscular power and how quickly you increase strength in response to exercise depend strongly on your genetics.
Learn how your genetic variations may influence your body's muscle growth, maintenance, and repair.
Have you considered running your city’s marathon? Entering the Tour de France? Your predispositions to endurance exercises can affect how your body responds to different activities. Your physical response to different exercises can determine which ones will provide you the most enjoyment and minimize your discomfort.
