The FitnessGenes team are proud to announce that Santa Claus (aka Father Christmas) will follow their Fat Loss System to get him in shape for Christmas 2017.

Santa remarked “I’ve been struggling with my weight for a couple of centuries now. The FitnessGenes Fat Loss System allows me to truly understand how my body responds to exercise and food, and will enable me to finally make the changes that I’ve wanted, but failed to achieve on other diets”.

By looking at a person’s genetics and lifestyle, FitnessGenes structures a person’s diet and workouts to match their body’s needs. Moreover, FitnessGenes can also highlight the reasons why someone may have not been losing weight.

“With regards to Santa”, Rudolph pointed out “I was not surprised to learn Santa has the version of the FTO gene linked to increased hunger and overeating. Every time he comes out of a house after delivering presents, I can tell he’s been snacking. I wouldn’t mind, but it’s getting increasingly difficult to pull him around and stuff him down all those chimneys every year”.

To help with Santa’s eating habits, FitnessGenes has recommended that he eats more frequent but lower calorie meals, avoids energy-dense junk food, shuns low-carb diets, and has a satiating protein-packed breakfast every morning.

FitnessGenes also identifies foods you should try to eat, and foods to avoid. FitnessGenes’ Scientific Researcher, Dr Nathan West adds, “Santa should limit the amount of both saturated and omega-6 fats he has in his diet, as he carries two risk variants in the APOA2 and APOA5 genes that are associated with weight gain when these two respective fat types are eaten.”

“FitnessGenes suggests a range of foods I should eat, helping me avoid these fats and accelerating my fat-loss” Santa asserted. However, Santa laments that he needs to abstain from eating loads of Mrs Claus’ all-butter shortbread when he returns home from his global distribution duties.

The FitnessGenes DNA Analysis and Action Blueprint also structures your exercise to increase lean muscle growth. Santa was surprised to find the training he was previously doing was not affording him the best results. “I used to train with a very heavy sack, which I could lift only a few times,” Santa scoffed.

However, FitnessGenes identified that Santa carries genetic variants (such as those in associated with ACNT3 and ACE) predisposing his muscles to respond better to high volume resistance exercise. Santa declared, “This was a surprise to me, but I now the elves have arranged all the presents in smaller sacks , so I can do higher numbers of repetitions in each set.”

In addition to the Fat Loss system, FitnessGenes offers Starter and Muscle Building Systems that are genetically tailored to peoples differing goals and levels of expertise. They can be applied to any ‘elf ‘n’ fitness regime!

Santa adds, “Listen. I’ve been lugging around all sorts of presents over the years, so I think I can recognize a good gift when I see one. Why don’t you give the ULTIMATE in personalized presents to your loved ones this year? Give them a Fitness Genes Personalised fitness system, but HURRY, they’re 30% off from now until Christmas!"
