Your test will include analysis of these key aspects of fitness:

EXERCISE RECOVERY How long does it take you to get over an intense workout? Find out how quickly you recover from exercise.
  • Exercise recovery (NFE2L2)
  • Cell repair (SOD2)
METABOLISM Learn about how your body stores and processes fat. We test for genetic sources of insulin sensitivity, cholesterol regulation, and lipid metabolism.
  • Age-related metabolism (APOE)
  • Fatty acid sensitivity (APOE)
  • Lipid metabolism (APOa2)
  • Fat-processing ability (FABP2)
  • Feeling full (FTO)
  • Monounsaturated fat (PPARg)
  • Sugar sensitivity (TCFL2)
MUSCLE STRENGTH See how your genes relate to muscle strength, in areas like muscle mass, immune function, and bone density.
  • Lean body mass (TRHR)
  • Muscle mass (VDR)
JOINTS Some of us develop more soreness after working out than others. This is caused by the genetic variations in your tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.
  • Joint strength and flexibility (COL5a1)
  • Joint health and injury (GDF5)
ENDURANCE How effective is your body at processing oxygen? We look at genes related to endurance, including cardiac output, red blood cell production, and muscle efficiency.
  • Cardiac output (ACE)
  • Oxygen capacity (ADRB1)
  • Muscle function (ADRB2)
  • VO2 Max (ADRB2)
  • Energy output (ADRB3)
  • Muscle efficiency (BDKRB2)
  • Cardiorespiratory capacity (CRP)
  • Blood flow regulation (VEGF)
POWER PERFORMANCE Are you built for speed or distance? We test for genetic variants related to cardiovascular fitness and skeletal muscle makeup present in fast-twitch muscle fibers.
  • Muscle force (ACTN3)
  • Muscle power (AGT)
  • Cardiorespiratory capacity (EDN1)
  • Exercise recovery (IL-6)
  • Strength building (MSTN)
  • Blood flow regulation (eNOS)


A 27-gene profile that helps you understand how your DNA affects your fitness potential, so you can get the info you need to fine-tune your routine and reach your goals faster.

  • Could your metabolism help or hinder your goals?
  • Do you have the genes for easily building muscle?
  • Do you have the potential to be an endurance athlete?

These are some of the things you can learn about yourself with the FITCODE DNA test.

Delivery times for certain genes will be delayed by 3-4 weeks.
