For elite athletes, it’s recommended to get bloodwork done quarterly to track trends and progressions, whether athletes are in season or training for competition. Bloodwork is important for elite athletes as it provides valuable information about their health, nutrition, recovery, and performance. These tests can also identify underlying medical conditions or potential health issues that may affect athletic performance. Knowing this information can help athletes and coaches make informed decisions about training, nutrition, and recovery to ensure peak performance.
Blood analysis requires careful interpretation with clinical reasoning and research to provide the most appropriate recommendations for individuals. A consultation prior to lab testing will extract information about training and sport demands, medical and family history, symptoms, and goals. A consult after analysis will provide detailed information about their health, actionable recommendations, and medical referrals if necessary.
Laboratory fees not included. Please inquire for questions.
