Why undergoing this examination?

Sport practice is fundamental to a good quality of life, but not all individuals respond in the same way to the sport, mainly due to genetic variations. However, it is possible to customize the sports training by analyzing an individual’s genetics. Knowing the genetics related to the sport allows the individual to adjust the training according to his/her objectives in a personalized way, as well as to know the predisposition to possible frequent injuries in the athletes.

What is this exam?

This genetic analysis consists of the evaluation of 43 polymorphisms in 33 genes, which are specifically associated with athletic performance in activities of strength, endurance or combined strength and endurance, energy replacement, bodybuilding, injury and recovery.
