GenSportsPro Professional Sports (GSP-PS) brings all the benefits of the amateur tests (check them here), plus some extra features that make it our most comprehensive test, offering unique characteristics and even better results.

Among the extra features that make it the best sport genetic test out there, we highlight:

  • Whole genome sequencing (650,000 polymorphisms)

  • Updates for new phenotypes for a 12-month period, no extra cost and no need to take a new sample - ever

  • Customized reports, shortened and driven to different professionals (nutritionist, physical preparation coach and physiotherapist), in addition to the full-lenght report

  • Support from our expert team for issues about the results or their application in the training routine of athletes

What is it?

Why do it?

Firts of all, the team's staff (doctors, physiotherapists, physical preparation coaches and nutritionists) will have access to detailed information on the athletes's genotypes, allowing them to make a customized plan to each player, so he/she can be at his/her very peak, considerably reducing the chances of non-contact injuries and improving the overall performance.

To know the deficiencies and potentialities of the team members may have a huge financial impact on the team - figure how much you will lose in case one of your star players can't compete for 6 months.

Whatsmore, pointing out the type of muscle fibers and inherited genetic characteristics (resistance, speed, power, etc.) may even aid you to guide young athletes' roles or positions in the team, as well as how the coach can better put their qualities to use.

Top benefits

Find out the predisposition to non-contact injuries, ​severity and average recovery time

​Check how and where adjust the training, due to workload, intensity and recovery time

Assess muscle development and power transmission

Understand which foods you should eat/drink to improve your sport performance

Suggest an increase of the intake of certain nutrients and vitamins

Point out the decrease or restriction of foods that don't match your genotype

The science

GSP-PS was developed through years of observation and study of athletes by world-known researchers in the areas of genetics, biomedicine, molecular biology, sports medicine, nutrition and physical preparation coaches. Its results and reliability are corroborated by a series of scientific papers.

There are about 200 markers mapped and analyzed nowadays, specifically for sports, in areas like speed, strenght, power, resistance, predisposition to injuries, nutrition and performance - GSP-PS tests a number of genetic markers (SNPs) directly related to physical conditions, such as:
