HIT

Our HIT subscription profile is designed for anyone involved in high intensity activities like track cycling. In fact, it’s a great option for anyone taking part in any activity that requires repeated intense sprints.

These activities often require short, intense bursts of effort, but similarly require the stamina to last the distance. So our HIT blood test profile is all about tracking a mix of the most relevant markers for power and endurance sports.

The test includes 18 different markers. These include biomarkers relating to oxygen carrying capacity, fatigue, muscle breakdown, body stress and hormones.

This is the ideal test, therefore, for anyone involved in high intensity sports and who wants to optimise their endurance and power.

This is a finger prick test taken at home. You receive your kit every 3, 4 or 6 months (your choice) and simply send a sample back to us. You’ll receive all your results and insight on a digital dashboard in matter of days.
