Performance

Your Performance Blueprint

Identify key nutrient deficiencies

Nutrients like vitamins and minerals play important roles in muscle function, energy metabolism, and red blood cell replenishment.  Deficiencies can impair performance and recovery.



Know when to push harder or rest longer

Internal markers of recovery help determine whether your body is ready to work or if it needs time to recover. Understanding the difference can help you to make decisions to streamline your training and allow you to push your body to reach the next level of performance.

Performance Science

  • General Health
    Liver, kidney, and immune health markers

    The liver, kidneys, and immune system are all important in supporting athletic performance. During exercise, your liver can provide energy sources and break down waste products; your kidneys filter the blood to remove waste and recycle important substrates; immune cells help your body handle stress, such as infection, inflammation, and even exercise. Maintaining optimal levels can help you achieve a high volume of training.

  • Energy
    Glucose

    Glucose is your body’s preferred source of energy during most sports. It allows you to quickly and efficiently turn food consumed into energy to fuel training, competitions, and races.

  • Hydration
    Hydration status

    Hydration is important for performance and safety. Inadequate hydration can impair physical and mental performance and increase your risk for heat-related illness. Hydration insights can help you match personal fluid and electrolyte needs to perform safely and at optimal levels.

  • Recovery
    Recovery is necessary for peak performance. 

    Training and competition are stressful to your body. Tracking levels of muscle breakdown markers during training can help determine whether you are training optimally, or whether your body needs a recovery break.

  • Endurance
    The body’s ability to consume and use oxygen is a key determinant of endurance performance.

    Red blood cells have the important job of carrying oxygen from your lungs to the working muscles in order to sustain energy and delay fatigue.  Evaluating red blood cell capacity for oxygen transport may help to identify potentially correctable underlying causes of fatigue so that you can better sustain energy levels.

  • Nutrition
    Macronutrients

    Macronutrients are energy-containing nutrients in your body.  They are broken down and used as fuel during exercise and recovery.  Monitoring macronutrient levels can provide insights on whether your current diet meets your body’s specific needs.

    Micronutrients

    Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals that your body needs to generate energy, stimulate muscle actions, and replenish cells like red blood cells. Micronutrients are important for optimizing your metabolic and muscle efficiency.
