The coaches at ALTIS follow a philosophy that all athletes are different and thus need to be trained in an individualized manner. This is why the ALTIS Sport Performance Report examines some miscellaneous factors that could affect your training and performance.
In this section, genetic markers associated with both psychology and performance nutrition will help you further optimize and tweak your own training. These insights come from a variety of research to help you understand some of the physiological and psychological influencers of your training enjoyment and training commitment.
These traits include:
- Caffeine Sensitivity
- Body Temperature
- Error Avoidance and Novelty
- Salt Levels
Take caffeine as an example. Some variants of the CYP1A2 gene are associated with a lower sensitivity to caffeine's effects and faster caffeine metabolism. Those with this variant may find that they drink more coffee than their colleagues to help kick off a work day, or may not get the same advantage from using caffeine to book their workout energy.
