Over-training is every athletes nightmare. Fatigue, illness, and poor performance are all outcomes of over-training, and the only solution is weeks and in extreme cases months of rest. This is where biomarker tracking can help. Our Training Load profile measures the body’s key indicators for stress, inflammation and immunity, giving you scientific insight into whether you are doing too much and need to ease off before it’s too late.
This profile is ideal for those who are involved in frequent and intense training and want to monitor their body’s stress load to enable them to improve their training plan and avoid long-time outs.

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 quicklyPiers Gilliver, Silver Medalist, Rio 2016
I ran my first marathon in 2014 which left me feeling exhausted and constantly unwell. What I didn’t know then was that my iron and vitamin D levels were incredibly low. I wasn’t going to make the same mistake again. By using Forth to test key biomarkers in the preparation for the London marathon has given me the confidence to get on with my training, as well as putting me in control of the areas I need to improve. I’ll be testing again after my race to see how all the hard training has affected my numbers.Jude Peck, 42, Running mum
