Questions & Answers

What took you guys so long? I’ve been on the waiting list for ages.

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.

I’ve already done a DNA test, but it is not on your list of supported providers. What can I do?

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.

How do I connect my DNA data to Genetrainer?

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.

What kind of fitness goal can I choose?

Right now you can choose from Weight Loss, Endurance, Muscle Strength, Stress Relief and General Physical Health. We’ll be adding more soon.

I don’t have access to a gym, can I still follow the Genetrainer plan?

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.

Which devices can I use?

You can see the supported devices and Apps on our partners page.

How long do Genetrainer workouts take?

All Genetrainer workouts can be done in an hour or under, including warm up and cool down. Some are even quicker.
