Endurance

Our Endurance blood test subscription is specifically designed for triathletes, cyclists and long distance runners. It brings together a whole range of biomarkers that enable athletes to optimise their training. These include markers relating to oxygen carrying capacity, immune function, fatigue, recovery and over training.

As a standard part of this profile, you’ll get:

  • Creatine Kinase (CK) blood test
  • Haematocrit (HCT blood test)
  • Over a dozen additional markers

The results of this blood test will help you to identify the cause of any dips in athletic performance, giving you insight into when to reduce activity level or improve your diet and nutrition.

Our Endurance profile is the ideal blood test for those looking to optimise their athletic performance and fitness or simply for those who want to ensure their body’s key endurance markers are just where they should be.

This is a home finger prick subscription test, so we send you a test every 3, 4 or 6 months (your choice) and you simply provide a sample and send it back.

This profile is perfect for triathletes, distance runners and cyclists looking to understand and improve endurance.
