Race Fit

Our Race Fit profile is for those who are near the beginning of their fitness journey or are undertaking a new challenge. This tracking profile brings together a range of biomarkers to enable you to track the transformation your training is having on your health, as well as checking key markers are in the right zone. The markers covered include body fat and liver function, some indicators for fatigue, together with markers which will allow you to monitor how much stress your body is under.  

This profile is therefore ideal for those who are starting out in sprint triathlons or running their first long distance race.

As a professional triathlete I put my body through a lot of stress. Some weeks involve over 30 hours of training and at the end of a block of training I expect a lot from myself. I respond to visible markers of fatigue and blunted immune function by adapting my training, however by working with Forth I’ve been able to get a better insight into my health, my fitness and my fatigue levels. This allows my to more accurately adapt my training load and get more out of the work I’m putting in. Ultimately it allows me to load my training at the right times and therefore race at my best.

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.
