How Genetic Testing Can Improve Your Health
Genetic testing for lifestyle and wellness improvements have progressed dramatically since the mapping of the human genome in 2003.
Clinical studies and research has identified and established genetic markers that dictate how the body's unique metabolic and physiologic functions affect weight loss and athletic performance. These genetic markers can indicate how an individual can utilize macro- and micro-nutrients and how an individual physiologically benefits from different types of exercise. A wellness program based on an individual's unique genetic make-up has been proven to be more effective than one-size-fits-all programs.
How Does It Work?
Our resident Fitness Coach, Grace Clackson, is an ISSA (International Sports Science Association) Genetics-Based Program Designer, will provide you with a DNA Collection Kit, which consists of a simple cheek swab. You will then send in your sample in a pre-paid package to the lab that will perform a complete scientific analysis of your unique genotype. The ISSA Genetic Test will analyze 36 unique traits that can help determine your genetic predisposition in areas such as weight loss ability, macro- and micro-nutrient utilization, exercise and training responses, mental and physical foundations, and injury and recovery risks. Your trainer will contact you with results and analysis and together will make a nutrition and exercise plan based on your unique genetic information.
Our Genetics Testing Service costs $399, which includes a full analysis of your genetic information plus 2 x 45 minute consultation and planning with our trainer. For more information, send an email to or send a text to 781-530-4796 to arrange a phone chat.
