HIT

Our HIT subscription profile is designed for those who are involved in activity such as track cycling or team sports which often involve repeated intense sprints efforts, whilst at the time requiring the stamina to last the distance. This tracking profile therefore includes a mix of the most relevant markers for power and endurance sports, covering aspect of O2 capacity, fatigue, muscle breakdown, body stress, hormones, as well as other health markers which can be affected by strength training.

This profile is therefore ideal for those who are looking to optimise endurance capabilities as well as aspects of power.

See how a simple test can improve your performance...

I recently used Forth’s blood screening service prior to competing in the Paralympics in Rio.  Through the test I discovered that my Vitamin D was low and with the help and advice of my dietitian, was able to address this before Rio.  Forth provided an excellent service.  I was able to have my bloods taken from a clinic close to where I train and my results came through very quickly

I ran my first marathon in 2014 which left me feeling exhausted and constantly unwell.  What I didn’t know then was that my iron and vitamin D levels were incredibly low.  I wasn’t going to make the same mistake again.  By using Forth to test key biomarkers in the preparation for the London marathon has given me the confidence to get on with my training, as well as putting me in control of the areas I need to improve.  I’ll be testing again after my race to see how all the hard training has affected my numbers.
