SenSpa to launch fitness programmes based on DNA analysis

SenSpa, a luxury Thai-style spa at the Carys Manor Hotel in Hampshire, UK, has partnered with health and fitness company DNAFit to offer the company's bespoke training programme in-spa.

Expected to launch next year, the programme, called DNAFit Testing, analyses user's genes to create personally tailored fitness plans based on how the body responds to different types of exercise and nutrition.

Users undergo a simple swab test; the swab is then scanned and 45 gene variants are tested to determine the body's response to food and exercise, before a detailed report is generated. Trainers then use this report to create bespoke programming tailored completely to the individual.

Lina Lotto, spa director at SenSpa, said: "It takes all the guesswork out of creating a fitness plan for someone. Tailoring fitness programme to individuals based on DNA analysis is the way things are going. It streamlines everything to make every bit of exercise we do and every piece of food we eat count."

Avi Lasarow, CEO of DNAFit, said: " By exploring their fitness and nutrition genetics, SenSpa customers can now access the most personalised information possible about their unique requirements and make better-informed decisions about their health and wellness. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to exercise and nutrition."

DNAFit is the latest in a series of specialist service offerings available at the spa. Other services include AlphaSphere Deluxe therapy, a sensory experience designed to promote relaxation by combining colour and sound therapy with aromatherapy and vibration.
