DNA-based programs may feel pretentious for non-athletes, but it should still help anyone willing to take that next step

Athletes and fitness enthusiasts follow rigorous workout routines and nutrition plans to maintain a fit body. But with technological developments such as advanced medical screenings and gadgets like wearable and mobile monitoring devices, even regular Filipinos can have a healthier lifestyle.

You don’t even need to be someone like Coryn Rivera, the first Filipino-American to win the Tour de Flanders in 2017, to benefit from the innovations of genetic profiling. But if you do compete at a very high level then the effects of considering every possible method to be in top physical form to win in your chosen sport can make all the difference.

Take for example, the myDNA Pro Program, which provides tailored diet and fitness recommendations to reduce health risks and even identifies metabolic and inflammatory responses, obesity risk, and appetite control. It also analyzes users’ injury risk, oxygen efficiency, recovery, and power and endurance levels.

“As a professional cyclist, it’s my number one job to know my body,” Rivera says.

Despite achieving championships around the world, Rivera continues to look for ways to be her best in every race. And there’s reason to believe that Rivera’s reports showing her injury risk, up and cool down, hydration, and extra time for rest allows her to translate them into actual wins—the most recent of which is the US Professional Road Cycling Championship a month ago after three years of runner-up finishes.
