Welcome to the future of fitness, where we are empowered by real-time data to determine what we eat and how we should move. Here are some of the biggest health and fitness innovations available for you to develop a bulletproof plan to fuel your workout and reach your ultimate goals.
Do you remember how was working out like 20 years ago before technology found its way into our lives now?
In this fast-paced, time-starved era, technology is changing the way we eat and exercise. According to a survey published by The Straits Times, results show that the average Singaporeans are keen on making use of technology to take control of their health. Out of the 1,000 surveyed, 4 in 10 said that they owned health applications or gadgets such as the home health-monitoring devices, fitness trackers and mobile health applications.
Empowered with rich data and knowledge, you can now cut out the guesswork to move better and smarter towards your goals.
Zoom Into Your Genes
More reps or weights in your workout routine? Why do you crave certain food? Why are you not losing weight despite a low-fat diet or regular exercise?#
The answer is right in your genes. We are all unique genetically and your genes can explain why you react differently to exercise regimens and essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins and vitamins. Your genes also determine your taste perception, food preferences, satiety responsiveness and metabolism.
With a Health and Wellness DNA Test, you are able to understand your genetic makeup to make informed decisions about your body and lifestyle.
The process is simple. Get your personal DNA kit at any Fitness First club, fill up the forms with your personal information, do a cheek swab and drop it off at the club’s front of house.
You will get the results mailed to you in a password protected email after 2 weeks – an easy-to-understand report that gives you detailed insights on your key genetic traits such as metabolism, power, endurance and more.
By understanding what you are made for, you can work with your personal trainers to develop an exercise plan that is best suited for you, only you.
