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

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.

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
