Have your biomarkers reviewed by a world renowned sports physician
Dr. Alan Farrell, MD
"the best sports doctor I've worked with"
Having worked with many World and Olympic medalists, including Tour de France winners, Dr. Farrell specializes in optimizing performance for athletes. He knows exactly the biomarkers that improve your times on the course and how to identify early signs of injury, inflammation or fatigue.
Have your biomarkers and overall performance reviewed in a one-on-one consultation by Dr. Farrell.
"My biomarker review with Dr Farrell was amazing! He helped me identify the causes of some long standing inflammation and fatigue but most importantly also gave me the confidence boost of knowing that, aside from those minor, fixable issues, I was ready to train hard for the biggest race of my life."
"I tested with Choose Health before my last half ironman training program. Based on my biomarker results, Dr Farrell suggested that I make changes to my diet, and include more rest letting my body fully recover. I had my best time ever (under the magic 5 hours) and I now track my markers each month."
