Where to begin? LAB TESTS DIRECT is a new Aussie owned product and service enabling you to take tests from the comfort of your own home.   Your fitness and training plan is taken to a granule level allowing you to identify specific genes that can tell you your capacity / ability to build muscle, how fast you recover from repetitive strain, your range of motion and ligament strength and how your body processes different food.  If you’re a serial dieter or fitness freak and you seem to keep coming across the same roadblocks in your progress and can’t figure out why, maybe it’s time to take the test?

Simply send in your swab samples from the home testing kit you order and access a full DNA Profile analyzing genetic markers that equip you with the knowledge you need to optimize your training regimen or take the Food Sensitivity and Adrenal Fatigue Tests.

New bodies of research are rippling through the fitness industry on the topic.   Diet, particularly macronutrients, play a major role in shaping the composition of these complex populations.
