Being fit takes more than what you think! Because...
Same diet may not work
Identical exercise may not yield the same output
Effects of workout differ
Adopting to wrong type of exercise
Injury risk and recovery potential
Be it weight loss, weight gain, muscle gain, getting ripped, hitting the time target for a 5K run or taking your game to the next level there comes a time when your body doesn't respond to the stimulus being provided as well as it seemed to do when you began. Designing an efficient training regimen and diet plan requires much more than blindly following your favorite athlete or a few generic searches on search engines. In order to truly perform at the pinnacle of your potential, you must take into account your personal genomic, environmental and daily lifestyle components. This would truly personalize your training and diet while understanding the strengths and weaknesses of your body.
MYFITGENE™ HELPS YOU ACHIEVE JUST THAT.
Myfitgene™ brings genetic testing to the fore and looks at the unique genetic composition of an individual. It is a DNA based comprehensive sports and fitness assessment test, which has been carefully designed to target 40+ hand-picked parameters that affect nutrition, fitness, and wellness of an individual.
KEY FOCUS AREAS
Gluten intolerance, hormonal function, migraine and more - screening for major health conditions which concern athletes & their coaches.
Muscle, bone & tissue regeneration, repair and energy levels "etc". heavily rely on micro-nutrients & immunity. These factors are controlled by certain genes.
INJURY RISK & RECOVERY
Bone health, muscle repair and nutrient levels directly affect an athlete's risk of injury. Recovery is dependent on biological events.
Personality traits such as resilience/stress response, pain threshold, ability to avoid errors and memory skills and others affect your training results. These aspects have been linked to genes.
Heart health, smoking/drinking habits, fat metabolism, lipid profile "etc". are major determinants of cardiorespiratory fitness - a key component in your athletic prowess.
MUSCLE STRENGTH & ENDURANCE
Genes are responsible for the inborn composition of muscle fiber, conditioning and strength. Athletic traits such as power and endurance can also be analyzed.

How do we analyse?
Polygenic Risk Score
This report is generated based on Polygenic Risk Score(PRS). A polygenic risk score (PRS) estimates an individual’s genetic risk(predisposition) for a trait or condition. PRS takes the sum(aggregate) of all known common variants to calculate an overall genetic risk for a particular condition.
How it Works?
Collect your sample, & make sure the cap is securely fastened. Reach out to us, & we will have kit collected from you.
Once your DNA process our QC, it is then subjected to a variety of tests to ensure that your DNA is ready to be read!
Your DNA has been read! The genetic sequence thus obtained is now subjected to intensive analysis.
Your report is generated
The Endurance Profile - Superman Stamina!
Slow-tiwtch fibers work via aerobic respiration for more stamina.
You are genetically programmed for high endurance based events.
Your muscles need several reps with lighter weighs.
The Sprint Profile - Explosive Effect!
Fast-tiwtch fibers contract speedily to give you power bursts in a short time.
You may tire out sooner! Rest in between high-intensity exercises.
You may tire out sooner! Rest in between high-intensity exercises.
~30% Higher antioxidant activity.
Better recovery rates, cell & tissue repair.
Maintain antiox levels through a healthy diet.
Lesser antioxidant activity due to a genetic variant.
Greater oxidative stress & toxin buildup may increase risk for injury.
Increase intake of antioxidant-rich foods in diet.
1. What kind of parameters are analyzed in MyFitGene™?
MyFitGene™ looks at multiple genetic markers in your genome, which affect nutrition, fitness and wellness. Parameters which contribute to physical fitness and athletic performance, are comprehensively assessed in this DNA-based test. Some of the main aspects covered in this test include sports injury risk, bone health, muscular power and strength, response to diet and exercise, endurance potential, etc.
2. Who can benefit from this test?
Athletes and fitness enthusiasts across all age groups.
Sports coaches and physicians, sports psychologists (to help athletes perform to the best of their potential).
Anyone who exercises regularly or is planning to start a new workout regime.
Fitness trainers and nutritionists (to help their clients reach their goals).
3. From a sports and fitness perspective, what does the report cover?
Cardiorespiratory fitness - lipid traits such as HDL/LDL, blood pressure and cardiac profiling (arrhythmias included).
Muscle composition - power and endurance.
Nutrition and body composition - bone health, nutrient levels, metabolism, carbohydrate and fat requirements.
Hormonal balance, liver and kidney health (major detoxification organs), gut health.
4. How does MyFitGene™ help someone reach their fitness or athletics goal?
You are unique, and so is your DNA. By understanding your genetic profile (via MyFitGene™ report ), you can
Identify the workouts best suited to your body.
Customise physical training to enhance existing strengths, overcome weaknesses.
Perform to the best of your potential.
Tap into genetic advantages such as muscular power.
Keep tabs on nutritional aspects for optimal fitness.
Prevent injury and boost recovery rates.
Ensure prolonged participation at the gym or in sports.
5. Is there a sports gene? Does MyFitGene™ test for it?
Genome wide association studies such as the 1000 Athlomes Project identified several genes that affect athletic performance. Athletic performance is a cumulative outcome of several factors such as training variables, muscular strength, adaptability, nutrition, clinical profile, etc. There are several genes which affect these factors and MyFitGene™ provides a comprehensive assessment of these genes.
6. Does the product include monthly diet plans?
While fitness and nutrition advice is included in the personalised recommendations report (delivered post-genetic counselling), it is not a substitute for monthly diet charts. Nutrition counselling, with monthly diet plans based on your genetics, is available as an add-on service. You can register for this option either at the time of product purchase or later. We’ve also tied up with an international manufacturer for providing DNA-based custom vitamin supplements! You can request for the custom formula here and purchase the supplements once your genetic data has been generated.
