The Science

All reports and recommendations are generated by our in-house science team and backed by the latest scientific research.

Creating your personal reports

Genetic analysis

Decoding your DNA is at the heart of everything we do.

By unlocking your unique genetic code, we gain a deep and individualized understanding of how your body works, your personal health risks, the foods you should eat, the way your body responds to exercise, and much more.

From a single saliva sample, we analyse over 600,000 genetic variants to piece together your DNA puzzle which provides the biological foundations upon which your personal reports are built.

Lifestyle analysis

DNA is only one side of the story.

Your health and fitness are also strongly influenced by your lifestyle, including what you eat, how frequently you exercise, and how much sleep you get each night.

By collecting personal lifestyle data on your food choices, current body composition, activity levels, sleep patterns, and more, we are able to build the most complete picture of you.

With continuous in-house research and development, TrueTrait® is used to deliver new traits every month, providing new insights and recommendations for all members to follow.

Industry Leading Analysis

All samples are analysed at our ISO-accredited laboratory using the latest in DNA sequencing technology; the Illumina Global Screening Array.

Use of this technology allows for the analysis of more than 600,000 genetic variants, which provides the library of genetic data required to continually release new reports as more scientific research is published.

By sharing the same sequencing technology as companies including 23andMe and Ancestry.com, this allows customers of these alternative providers to upload their existing DNA file for instant access to all 130+ FitnessGenes traits.

Scientific Credibility

We pride ourselves on our scientific credibility. TrueTrait® is evidence based - it draws upon the findings of thousands of peer-reviewed academic papers and is continually updated as new research is released.

We also contribute to the field of genomics, having published original research and collaborated with a number of academic institutions and organisations, including Cardiff University, University of Birmingham, University of Oxford, and the UK's leading sport and exercise institution, Loughborough University.
