DNA Testing… is it worth it?

DNA Testing?

Is it worth it…. it seem’s expensive….what will I actually gain from having it done?  The most common comments I am getting asked, and the questions I thought before having it done.

I’ve watched over the last couple of years the latest trends within the fitness industry, seeing which ones I think are the best to train, educate and progress my knowledge, and the service I offer to my clients.

The DNA Body Performance Pro Test comes in at £250.  What I think is, that as a one off test, with all the information you receive, if it’s something that interests you, its worth the investment.

You will learn how your body responds to certain types of exercise,  how quickly you recover and if you are prone to injury.  The test also looks at your carbohydrate, salt, alcohol, diary tolerance levels, and your ability to for your body to process, produce, synthesis Anti Oxidants, Omega 3, Vit B, D, and your detoxification ability.

What must be taken into consideration, is testing your DNA is a snap shot to enhance your performance, well being, fat loss and enjoyment.  It’s a part of your lifestyle, so if you already have a balanced life, good sleep, good, fresh foods, balanced training and recovery, and fun…. and are looking for an edge to train smarter, or/and you don’t have any of this, and have tried loads of things and nothing quite gives you the motivation and results, DNA Fit I believe is a useful, strong tool.

The results come via email in a great summary sheet, mine is attached above.  Combined with this is a breakdown of each area to give you more advice and knowledge if you would like to know the science and more behind it.

Personally my DNA test was fascinating, way more interesting that I thought it would be, and useful.   I do think it should be taken with caution, for if I had received my results, without the knowledge I have I may have thought… well I can’t do a marathon, or I’m sensitive and intolerant to so much, ahh!! However, I found it so useful, personally and professionally.

Without a doubt I have to manage my food, nutrition and recovery at a higher level than some to complete things without being injured.  Through my years I have had several extreme, near death conditions/sports injuries… having this knowledge helps me to refine things further and I will monitor with interest the results.  I think it was by no coincidence I contracted weils disease and encephalitis following training for an Ironman and eating more carbohydrates.  So, okay huge stress on the body, etc etc… but it’s useful information.

For Team Energised Clients, I think it is exciting and will allow me to fine tune their training programmes and nutrition more specifically. Of course, this is something we do already, as every body is different, and every body at different ages and stages in life is different… but this adds another edge to training.   And I think it is exceptionally relevant for everyone, for GP Referral and complex medical cases to Team GB athletes, business people or teenagers…

Stats out in a recent feature for Healthy Magazine sugggest that 60% of bodyweight varience is down to genetic factors, and 33% were more likely to lose weight by having their DNA tested and following adapted nutrition plan, to a standard plan. Interesting thoughts that are obviously in their infancy in the fitness market, but one I am definitely certain will appeal and benefit a proportion of my clients.

Keep a look out for our Blood Testing Analysis, DNA Pro Training and thoughts in July.

#MondayMotivation….. 3 Questions for you?

live in your fears

#MondayMotivation have a read…. 3 questions for you…

The Hot Bod Course has started online for 30 Days, I’m really excited about running it. I saw Cirque du Soleil this weekend, I was really excited about this too (whilst managing the old encephalitis with the strobes!) and I watched the Voice….. exciting.

Possibly annoying for a Monday morning… to be so excited… but hey, I thought. We, You, I have one life. To really make things happen you have to get uncomfortable, you have to change things, you have to think… if I had just one chance, would I have the courage to commit and give everything? Would I have the courage to find the enjoyment in the moment, no matter how tough?

I dare you, I challenge you… to think.

1. What could you not live without really trying?

2. What would you be really sad about not doing?

3. If the length of your life was limited, what would you suddenly think…. yes, I just have to do this, go here, try this, spend some time with this person?

Write these questions down, answer them…. and then, please, please….. take action.

By getting uncomfortable, by changing your ‘script’, your story, your habit….. you can do anything, trust me, you really can.

But the ‘doing anything’ requires a huge dose of courage, the nerve to commit and the bravery the believe in yourself, even though the chance of ‘failing’ is so high…each time you ‘fail’ you learn to become wiser,

I’m pretty sure the Cirque performers have ‘failed’ numerous times before they mastered some of the crazy stunts they pulled off (I mean, I am so not strong in comparison, but hey, never compare, observe excellence to become better, or simply to marvel and enjoy talent). And I’m pretty sure the people on the Voice, however they come across had to overcome a huge level of what if and fear to walk on that stage…

So this week, step one step further onto a stage you have not been on before…. and share with us, how that goes.

I would love to know, and I will share too – I have signed up to Ciromedia classes, to learn to cartwheel, hey, you have to start somewhere and I can’t even somersault. I’ve also signed up to a writing, poetry course with a guy called Tyler Knott, if you love poems, read his book. I found it in Conwy, he is from America… it’s pretty cool.

And remember, if you think, I don’t have time….. think, when will I change the script and be ready to make the time to do the uncomfortable, to see what is possible?

#Kimpossible weekend kick for YOU… yes indeed  So… you know that thing that scares you, but you really want to do it….?Not a huge thing, but something that you know will make a difference to YOU and your life, confidence and daily well being….. Well, this weekend, I challenge you to go and do it.

Because, there will never be a right time, everything will never feel just right… sometimes you just have to do ‘it’. Here’s my commitment to you…..

I got a bike fit by the lovely people at the The Triathlon Shop in June 2013, then Weils near killed me off, then I tried to kill it off last September, then it nearly killed me again…. left with autoimmune encephalitis which pops up regularly enough to challenge me…. and give me millions of learnings.

Yesterday I decided was the day. The conditions were not perfect in me, but the weather and day was……I managed a very wobbly, very short bike ride on my own! Yippee, yippee.

So if you think, I’m waiting to feel this….. before I do this….. you may wait a long time. I was very nervous.

I know it will be a bit like a dance, forwards once step, rest two steps backwards, forward another. But hey, let’s go for that ride together…..

I want to live, bounce, laugh, love and be fit, inside and out. I want YOU (if you are ready) to join me this year and do just that…..
