heat ver­dict: Life­style Ed­i­tor Louise says, “I’d like to think I’m pretty fit, but I was in­ter­ested to see how I could re­ally tar­get my train­ing. The re­sults did take a while to come back, but when they did, I found them re­ally de­tailed. You’ll need to set aside some brain space to prop­erly take in the info as there’s lots of in-depth info about

stuff like fo­lates and hor­mones, which can be bam­boo­zling, but you’ll also find out if your body is more ca­pa­ble of strength, speed or en­durance, which can help you choose a form of ex­er­cise that will work ef­fec­tively for you. Plus they’ll ad­vise you when is the op­ti­mum time for you to ex­er­cise and which pre/post work­out nu­tri­tion will work for you, de­pend­ing on how your body pro­cesses food. You’re also given a work­out plan and nu­tri­tion ad­vice, which will help you put the sci­ence into prac­tice. I found the daily macronu­tri­tion break­down was use­ful to help me eat prop­erly at meal­times and avoid snack­ing. Will this test help you smash your fit­ness goals faster and eas­ier? It cer­tainly gives you the tools to re­ally fo­cus on key ar­eas and gives you a greater un­der­stand­ing of how your body works and re­sponds – per­fect if you’re frus­trated about plateau­ing at the gym.”
