Youfit to begin offering genetic testing to members

US budget club operator Youfit Health Clubs will begin offering its members genetic testing through its YouCoach personal training programme.

Youfit has signed a partnership with Advanced Genomic Solutions (AGS) and the test will be made available to all members across the operator's sites in Arizona and Florida.

"Partnering with AGS is our first step in helping Youfit members take control of their health," said J.J. Creegan, COO of Youfit Health Clubs.

"This partnership will allow us to be on the forefront of individualised health discovery that assesses wellness needs."

AGS specialises in genomic testing and the company will offer Youfit members its signature 'Health & Wellness DNA Test'.

The assessment will provide users with an individualised report, outlining how their genetics could affect their diet, exercise, and nutrition.

"Having knowledge of the chemical structure will empower members to make smarter decisions on what they eat and how they work out based on their unique genes," Creegan added.

Founded in 2008 by Rick Berks, Youfit currently operates 110 locations across the US, predominantly in the South and Western regions.
