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 ensuring your body is race healthy. 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.

I'm really excited to be an ambassador for Forth and am looking forward to working together to gain a deeper understanding of what is happening to my body as the training load changes throughout the year.  I believe monitoring blood profiles is the best way athletes can accurately monitor fatigue level and ultimately get the most out of their training.

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
