Knowing that your body has what it needs to train smart and recover well will give you the confidence you need to achieve your best-ever season.

Whether your goals are to increase your speed or distances this year, Forth Edge can help you identify areas for improvement and build a strong and sustainable foundation upon which to build success.

What biomarkers are important for runners?

Endurance, stamina, efficiency and fatigue-resistance are key attributes of the successful runner.

Forth Edge can help you check and monitor the biomarkers that give you insight into how your body uses energy, recovers from exertion, responds to stress and more. Ensure you’re getting the right micronutrients you need such as vitamin D and iron, and tailor your diet and training with advice from our specialist sports-science team.

How often should I test?

The best results come from identifying your own unique biomarker profile and learning how individual deviations impact your training and recovery.

Regular testing will establish a personal baseline and allow you to chart your progress over time, get a snapshot of how recovery is progressing, or ensure the balance between training, recovery and nutrition is optimal.

Forth Edge recommends testing every 3 months throughout the year.

Taking the best to new heights

We work with professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts to help them reach new levels of performance

Simone Mitchell

Triathlete

“I use Forth Edge to monitor my wellbeing, body stress levels and make sure my biomarkers are as they should be throughout the year. My key focus is to ensure my body’s recovery is continually monitored to prevent injuries and to ensure I am performing at my very best. I know that with regular biomarking testing with Forth Edge I have left no stone unturned and can fully commit to delivering my very best performance in training and at races”

  • 2019 IRONMAN WALES PRO WINNER

Harry Tanfield

Road and track cyclist

“I find the information about my blood values at different points in the season very valuable; it helps me guide my training and monitor the training load. Equally my nutritionist, coach and gym coach use this information to better enable them to direct my training. It’s a complete team effort and Forth Edge makes this possible. Plus the test is super quick and easy.”

  • 2018 BRITISH NATIONAL TRACK CHAMPION, INDIVIDUAL PURSUIT

Tom Evans

Ultra runner

“As a professional athlete I need to ensure that I’m looking after my body throughout the year. Being an ultra runner, my training volume is high (225km average per week) and it’s essential to stay healthy. This is where Forth Edge has helped me; my first test showed that my iron levels were low and I have now been able to improve them which has really helped my performance. It’s an essential part of my training and racing as an endurance athlete!”
