Fitness and nutrition are quite closely related as they are intrinsic to the healthy lifestyle. But do you know both fitness and nutrition are majorly driven by the gene variants you are carrying. A simple cheek swab can help you understand how certain genes involved in biological functions contributing to fitness interact with the environment to give you your feature characteristics. You must have seen Usain Bolt running at lightning speed, Virat Kohli playing like a pro on the cricket field and Vijender singh performing at his best on a boxing mat, do you know why they outperform? Because there are certain genes in our body which support overall fitness. In some people these genes are found in both good and bad variants determining their overall performance. Recently, Indian cricket teams have undergone DNA testing for their team to understand the strong and weak points. A DNA based fitness test can help you analyse whether your genes support you to be great at aerobic sports or those with endurance. This doesn’t limit your passion for a particular type of sports if your genes are not in favour but it helps you know how you can overcome the challenges and be great at it.
