As a network of trainers, teachers and health professionals dedicated to deliver the most personalised and effective wellness service we strive to make every Training Plan, Nutritional Program or Wellness event as personal as it can be. Our unique products and services are direct result of applying this concept. The Wellness Concierge is the most personal and customised service with no equivalent, not only on the local but also on the international level. The Online Training Center is a great personal one stop place to manage and track every aspect of your fitness. The Physical Autonomy Lab - The FitLAB - our latest addition is a small private and very unique one on one setting, where we can learn more and improve our client's mobility, strength, and flexibility. You can see that it was very natural for us to bring something even more advanced and NEW (again) that will further help us to continue deliver the best personal training service!
A couple of years ago I was reading an article about training based on genetics results. I was like Wow - I couldn't help but imagine futuristic ATM-like machines that can give you in seconds the most specific and personal workout that is designed only for you with all the bells and whistles of the best training plans. No more guesswork - press a button and get your own scientifically based plan for weight management, muscle grow or health improve.
Yes I know, I know it is not as simple as that, there are still so many environmental factors that affect our abilities to respond and develop positive changes in our bodies (thanks God for that)! But guess what - our genes are probably the best foundation to start with - to understand the natural blueprint that we have been born with. Imagine giving your trainer a manual - "here is look how I was build, can you fix me and make me better?" Yes, now we can! Your DNA based plans are unique to your physical traits and environment.
So since that article DNA testing for training has been on my radar and I have been talking with many other trainers, genetic scientists, and clients about it. After researching local and international DNA testing providers I chose to trust my personal DNA test to FitnessGenes based in UK. I was sold by the very simple and yet informative website, the deepness of the additional information provided, and the great user friendly presentation of the results. In another blog post I'll share what I have learned from my DNA report and how it affected my training and nutrition.
Knowing how your body responds to exercise and diet is just the start; it’s the beginning of the process of finding out what exercise and nutrition is the optimum to reach your goals. Based on your chosen goal we prepare the most efficient and effective plan for you. Your plans are unique to your physical traits and environment.
I am so excited to introduce our DNA Wellness Program and I am looking forward to design your best personal wellness plan yet!
