When you (the purchaser) receive the DNA sample collection kit, you can then give it to the lucky gift recipient. As long as that person (the gift recipient) registers the barcode in an account they have created, everything will work as normal.
If you purchase a workout / training plan or DNA Upload service, then you (the purchaser) will receive an email containing an activation code. This needs to be forwarded to the gift recipient / person who will be using our service.
If the purchased product included a workout / training plan, then the purchaser will receive an email containing a plan activation code. This email/code needs to be forwarded to the person who will be using our service.

No - once you have received your FitnessGenes genetic results there is no need to purchase additional tests. Your DNA sequence is fixed for life, so any additional DNA analysis will yield the same results.

We can deliver to PO Box addresses within the UK, Europe, USA, Australia, and New Zealand.
For deliveries elsewhere in the world, we usually deliver using a signed for courier service. Unfortunately, we cannot deliver to PO Box addresses using this service.
If you do not have an alternative address, please contact us at email@example.com and we can organise alternative arrangements. Please note that we are unable to provide a tracking number when posting via standard post outside of the UK, USA, or Canada.
We are pleased to be able to support members of the forces and we can ship to military bases. Please note, however, that shipping to APO addresses may sometimes take longer than to other locations.
Please contact us directly via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions.
We ship to almost every country in the world from our distribution centres. Regrettably, we cannot currently sell / ship to Russia, China or Korea. This is because either: we cannot guarantee the safe arrival of your sample collection tube, or; you are likely to experience difficulty posting your sample back to us.
There are also a small number of countries that require us to work with the customer to complete some additional paperwork. In these cases, we'll be in touch shortly after you have ordered.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any other questions.
For customers in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia, please allow up to 7 days for delivery. For customers in the rest of the world, please allow up to 10 days for delivery.
If your kit has not arrived after this period, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate further. In the event your kit has been lost in the post, we will replace it free of charge.
Your sample should be returned to us using the original mailing box.
Customers within the UK can return the sample free of charge, using the Freepost label on the box. Simply place the sealed box in a post box and it will be sent to our laboratory. You will receive an email from us once your sample has reached us.
Rest of the world customers
If you live outside the UK, we recommend that you return your sample using your country's standard postal service. This will be significantly cheaper than using a courier (e.g. FedEx, UPS) and your sample will reach our lab in a similar amount of time.
In the unlikely event that your sample does not reach us, we will cancel that barcode and reissue a new kit.
Our return address is: FitnessGenes, Bicester Innovation Centre, Commerce House, Telford Road, Bicester, OX26 4LD, United Kingdom
IMPORTANT – If you need to complete a customs form, you may be asked to give a content description and a customs value. We recommend using the content description: “Exempt human specimen — saliva sample” and the customs value: “No commercial value".
If you are required to enter a value above zero, then please put down: “$1”.
“No commercial value” or “$1” is the value of the used sample collection kit, and not the price that you paid for the analysis and recommendations we provide. If you use another value (e.g. the retail price) on the form, the UK government will incorrectly levy an import tax, which unfortunately we will need to invoice you for before we can receive and analyze your sample.
For customers in the UK, return postage is free of charge. Simply use the pre-paid return label or Freepost label (for UK customers) included with the kit.
