Personalised Health – Bringing genetics to Fitness Professionals

Understanding personalised health is a must for fitness professionals. It is well established that individuals with differing genetic backgrounds will respond differently to the same environmental exposure (genetic difference), and that the same person may respond differently to the same stimulus when at a different stage in their life (epigenetic change). Personal trainers, through appropriate training are now able to allow for these differences through quantification of epigenetics, giving you the ability to account for each individual in a clinical workload. Personalised health is essential to appropriate care moving forward. This webinar series aims to introduce and discuss these principles in detail.
