Ever feel like you’re not reaching your full potential? Constantly dieting and spending hours at the gym without seeing the results you want? You’re not alone in feeling like this. Fitness and nutrition are a tricky minefield of contradictions and confusing advice, that never seems to get any simpler.
Forget for a moment everything you know (or think you know) about diet and fitness. It’s not getting us anywhere - otherwise, we’d all be super fit! There’s a new health expert in town and it’s in the form of a revolutionary DNA test.
Eliminate the Guesswork
When it comes to our health, there’s an ever-expanding realm of tech, apps and online PT programs, eager to tap into our desire to take a more measured, scientific and personalised approach. And nothing could be more personal and scientific than one of the latest trends: DNA testing.
So, where do you start when looking to improve your fitness and nutrition? Whether your goal is to lose weight, gain muscle or simply improve your overall health, it’s best to approach your journey with the facts with a thorough understanding of your body’s unique needs…
That’s where DNA testing comes in. Each and every person has a different set of genes; our DNA dictates a lot of how our bodies perform and are meant to be nourished. Understanding the make-up of our DNA can help us in achieving optimal wellbeing and fitness.
Based on science developed to help professional athletes maximise their potential, a handful of companies worldwide offer DNA testing for consumers. The test promises to help them discover the training approach that’s best for them, according to their genes.
Your DNA has a big influence on many factors which affect your fitness and weight, including
- How efficient or inefficient your metabolism is
- Your levels of hunger-affecting hormones such as ghrelin
- Your body clock - what routine your body is best suited to
- Your sensitivity to sugar, saturated fats and other macronutrients
- How you process and react to caffeine, alcohol and other drugs

At Village GYM we work alongside DNAFit, a rapidly growing UK-based company founded in 2013. It provides the same DNA tests to fitness devotees as it does for elite sports teams and athletes.
