Blood sample collection options

Finger prick kit (FREE)

All our kits require a finger prick blood sample which is quick and easy to do at home. But if you don't like the idea of squeezing blood out of your finger, here are some other options:

A home visit by a nurse (+£60)

Have a nurse visit you at home to take your blood sample from your vein. The kit will come with everything the nurse needs to do the blood sample collection. Once you've placed your order, we'll be in touch to arrange an appointment.

Visit a clinic (+£45)

You can visit one of our partner clinics to have a nurse take a blood sample from your vein. Select this option at checkout where you can also see which clinics are near you. Once you've placed your order, we'll send you an email to arrange your appointment.

Organise a nurse myself (FREE)

If none of the above options work for you, you can arrange your own medical professional to collect your sample. There is no additional charge for this. Once you've ordered your test, we'll send you everything you and your chosen medical professional will need to collect a sample and post it back to our labs.

You can choose your blood sample collection method in the checkout. Learn more about sample collection.

When to take the test

Benefits of Blood Testing for CrossFitters

Unleash Your CrossFit Potential

As a CrossFit athlete, you're driven by an unwavering passion to push your limits and conquer the WOD. However, achieving peak performance requires a deep understanding of your body's unique needs and how they fluctuate throughout your training cycle. That's where home blood testing comes in, empowering you with actionable insights to elevate your performance and optimise your overall CrossFit experience.

Uncover Hidden Strength with Testosterone Optimisation

Testosterone is the cornerstone of male performance, playing a pivotal role in muscle growth, strength development, and overall fitness. Our blood test measures total testosterone levels, providing valuable insights into your body's ability to build muscle mass, recover from strenuous workouts, and achieve your CrossFit goals. By understanding your testosterone levels, you can tailor your training, nutrition, and recovery strategies to optimise your performance and maximise your potential.

Overtraining and Recovery

Achieving consistent CrossFit success is not just about pushing your limits; it's also about allowing your body to recover effectively. Our blood test assesses your cortisol (stress) levels and muscle damage markers, helping you identify any imbalances that could lead to overtraining or injuries. By addressing these imbalances, you can ensure proper recovery, preventing injuries that can derail your training plan and hinder your performance.

Fuel Your CrossFit Performance

Nutrition plays a crucial role in fuelling your CrossFit performance and supporting recovery. Our at-home blood test measures essential nutrients like iron, vitamin D, and vitamin B12, providing a clear picture of any nutritional deficiencies that may be impacting your performance. With this knowledge, you can make informed dietary adjustments to ensure you're getting the right nutrients your body needs to thrive in the CrossFit arena.

Monitor Muscle Response

Understand how your muscles are responding to your CrossFit training. Our blood test assesses internal muscle catabolism, indicating the balance between muscle damage and recovery. This information empowers you to adjust your training intensity and volume to optimise muscle growth and performance.

Track Your Progress over Time

Our blood test doesn't just provide a snapshot of your current health; it allows you to monitor your progress over time. By tracking your biomarker levels consistently, you can identify patterns, make informed adjustments to your training, nutrition, and recovery strategies, and ensure sustained progress towards your CrossFit goals.
