The main benefit of using DNA testing to create personalized athletic assessments, especially for our athletes, is that it is a customized plan that is specifically suited to them as an individual and not a generic training program.
We really want to understand where they are in regards to their fast twitch muscle fibers or whether or not they have any potential to be injury prone for reasons such as cartilage issues. All of these things come up on their DNA profile, as well as whether or not they have any issues in possibly breaking down certain vitamins.
DNA analysis is really key in helping athletes understand how they should be eating and how they should be training.
