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.

I enlisted the help of Forth to help me get to the bottom of my current health concerns. The test is really easy to do, just provide a small blood sample from the comfort of your own home and pop in the post. Within 3 days Forth emailed my results back to me. I can’t thank Forth enough for dealing with my results so quickly which has meant I can take the action needed to get my hormones back to normal

Training as a professional triathlete takes a toll on the body. In order to achieve my performance goals in the sport, consistency and quality training is necessary. Thanks to ForthEdge I can routinely check my biomarkers making me more aware of how my body, both on the inside and out, is adapting to my training helping me tailor my plan to my personal, physical needs - a dream for any athlete.
