What works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for all, and physical exercise is no exception to this. We are all different both physically and genetically, and we are different in the way that we respond to exercise. Some of these differences are due to our lifestyle and the environment we live in, but recent scientific advances have shown that variations in our DNA also have a big part to play.
Our mission at Genetrainer is to take personalization of your workouts to the next level, with training plans, exercises and advice personalized to you using your DNA. Genetrainer stays up to date with your fitness level through connection to a range of popular devices and apps, combining lifestyle and genetics to give you the fastest route to achieving your individual training goals.

It has been a long journey, and we admit it. Building something right takes time. For several months now we’ve been talking about launching, yet not found the right time. This is because we are continuously adding to the genetic information used in Genetrainer, and this process continues. We’re a small team, we wanted to start with a robust and secure interface and to be sure about the scientific basis of your recommendations. The good news however is that the wait is over. We are inviting people to join, and are working on improvements to Genetrainer every day.
We will support any provider which gives suitable coverage of the genetic variations needed for our analysis. If you don’t see your format on the list please contact us to get it supported.
If you have done a test with 23andMe it is super easy. Simply enter your 23andMe details after sign up and your data will be transferred securely to Genetrainer. This only needs to be done once. For other formats you can often download your results as a file and connect them to Genetrainer using our upload form.
Right now you can choose from Weight Loss, Endurance, Muscle Strength, Stress Relief and General Physical Health. We’ll be adding more soon.
Absolutely. You can follow Genetrainer workouts at home. You will need some basic equipment for some of our circuit training exercises. For cardio training we’d recommend a decent pair of running shoes or a bike if possible.
