Endurance

Our Endurance subscription is specifically designed for those taking part in sports such as triathlon, cycling and long distance running. This tracking profile brings together a set of biomarkers that allows athletes to optimise their training, covering aspects of 02 capacity, immune function, fatigue, recovery and markers for over-training. Results will help you to identify possible causes for dips in performance, giving insight into when to reduce activity level or improve nutritional intake.

This tracking profile is ideal for those who are looking to optimise their performance or for those who simply want to ensure their body’s key endurance markers are all in the right place to help them cross the finish line.

Over the past 4 years I’ve suffered with a number of serious knee injures from ski racing at an International level. My rehabilitation and training can be very demanding - up to 16 hours a week in the gym lifting weights or on the bike. When I’m skiing, I can easily rack up 30 hours per week. Therefore, it’s important I can regularly monitor key biomarkers for immune function and fatigue including vitamin D, iron, and thyroid function. This allows me to make informed decisions about my training, recovery and nutrition, so I can stay healthy and perform at my best.

As a professional athlete keeping healthy is very important.  This is where Forth has been a massive help.  I suffer from a hereditary condition which causes my body to store too much iron.  My biggest issue before using Forth was getting an appointment with my GP.  Now using Forth I can track my iron quickly and easily and take action before levels start to affect my health and my performance.  This puts me back on a level playing field with my competitors and I am able to compete to the highest level I can.
