For sports people genetic tests should be the natural base to evaluate how much of their potential they are exploiting.
Many sports people are convinced that adequate training combined with correct nutrition (and here we could open a bible of considerations) permit them to achieve the best performances.
However before an allergy there can be an adverse reaction to a food which then becomes an intolerance, but even sooner an adverse reaction is then a reduction in absorption of nutrients, so basically many people have "correct" nutrition that due to different reasons (intestine, genetic predisposition, over feeding) doesn't let them use the 100% of proteins, vitamins etc.etc).
On this basis if you accept this concept the first thing to test is the engine, is the "burning efficiency" of the engine working well and checking if the fuel used is the best for that specific engine.
So the first easy test to offer is the intolerances one (TIAMI 180 but if the analysed subject is not in particular a food explorer that loves to test and eat anything the TIAMI 90 is more than enough). TIAMI is FOOD INTOLERANCE TEST IMMUNOENZYMATIC METHOD in a Italian TEST INTOLLERANZE ALIMENTARI METODO IMMUNOENZIMATICO (TIAMI).
TIAMI 90 crossed with a food weekly journal allows for a clear picture of how much food energy is being exploited in the patient.
TIAMI test offers as well the possibility to evaluate intestine wellness 'cause if the patient is eating correct food in terms of tolerance but complains about some problem with intestine (abdominal swelling, difficult or too easy evacuation, acne, excessive sweating, etc.etc) we can presume that there is a dysbiosis in progress that causes an inflammation .
What could be worse for our well-being than not doing any kind of physical activity?
Probably do it wrong....
Let’s start from the assumption that we are not all born to do marathons or endurance races like "ironman" then the first consideration that has to be made before venturing into any sport discipline, is what type of exercise best suits us and our actual physical “shape”.
With several pounds more than our weight form, when trying to recover our physical fitness to decide to go jogging every evening for 90 minutes is not the most suitable choice, our knees and our back if asked would not agree...
We have always to consider that a wellness program starts from a healthy diet developed on our predispositions, our tastes and our lifestyle so, once again, combining homemade or "hungry" food programs with Olympic exercise only leads to stress unnecessarily on our body and our metabolism.
We have to be aware that in a slimming program the exercise aspect helps for a 20-30% not anymore.
To continue to eat “random” even if combined with the best fat burning exercise does not lead to anything: many people after weeks spent training have not lost weight, and in cases that they have lost it is more in liquids than fat mass.
Before starting any sport activity it is always recommended to do a medical examination in order to check our state of health to avoid future problems: if 20 years ago we were a skilled footballer or good tennis player remember that it was 20 years ago.
Time unfortunately is not a friend of health and basing our recovery in form in a program on past splendors is not a wise approach.
To support well-being 150 minutes per week of aerobic activity are enough; however it’s totally useless to do everything on the weekend and you should try to distribute these 150 minutes on seven days.(20 per day)
Often on Sundays you see on the streets "cyclists" who would like to be a Tour de France participant, weighted in pedaling, body and spirit, “veterans” of a 80 miles tour then after that from Monday to Saturday the only sport practiced was the “fridge door opening” convincing themselves that a single exhausting weekly session resolves the "problem" weight/ well-being.
It would be enough to look at our profile in the mirror to verify that this is not so.
Twenty minutes a day, a little less or more, can be found and it is a small sacrifice that our health will appreciate.
If we combine this manageable physical activity with an adequate food plan, based on a preventive medical investigation and not on the diet downloaded from the internet, our silhouette will join the applause of health and we will find ourselves enjoying a new optimal sense of wellbeing.
In conclusion: "do it yourself" as it is a cheap choice does not always bring positive results, so we do less but do it better. Don’t work harder work smarter!
No drastic and dramatic choices, no low-calorie diets, no exhausting gym session at 9 pm because we don’t have time before: let’s wake up half an hour before, take your breakfast at home, let’s get used to having healthy snacks, eating healthily and taking care of ourselves and our silver years will be better because we have invested a little but consistently.
Little but on a regular basis is the best formula that ensures lasting results without stress.

At Taylormade we are acutely aware of the demands of juggling a business or businesses with family life. We understand that to be truly productive in every area of your life requires a concerted effort to manage your time and to make sure that time is well spent in the support to your wellbeing and your productivity.
Therefore, we have created a programme that maximises the time you spend in developing your health, strength & happiness. Our 30minute programme with sessions on a Monday & Thursday morning with classes between 6.30-7 & 7.15-7.45am is ideally placed to optimise the start to your day.
Ground in neuroscience being up early in the day giving you the opportunity to get morning light on your eyes that increases alertness and is the most important strategy you can do to support your mental and physical health (metabolic wellbeing, positive function of your hormone system, mental health steering in the right direction). This means getting outside even if there is cloud cover without sunglasses, how long depends on the brightness of the morning from 5mins-30 mins (minimum to fantastic). The neurons that pick this light up convey to the brain that it is daytime and time to be alert.
Ok so back to the exercise once you have your alertness.
How does exercise impact your brain and health? Data going back to the 1990s supports the idea that physical movement of particular kinds can support brain health and brain function both in the immediate term and long term. So it should have a profound impact on how you structure your day. Getting blood flow to the brain; The brain is an organ too, it is the most metabolically demanding organ in your body, its receiving those metabolic factors, those fuels by way of the vasculature blood vessels, capillaries and veins and things of that sort. So movement is very crucial to get your brain to function properly and movement of various kinds actually.
Resistance training turns out to be as important as endurance training because of the way it stimulates the release of particular hormones actually from bones, things like osteocalcin, which can positively impact brain function and support the health of existing neurons as opposed to increasing the number of neurons (increasing the number of neurons turns out may not be as beneficial as we may think due to incorporating new neurons into existing circuitry is actually very challenging for the brain to do).
So why 30 mins? Working out for too long- over an hour can be detrimental because of raising cortisol which is not always bad if it is appropriately timed and the appropriate low levels but you don’t want your cortisol levels up through out the day or big spikes in cortisol repeatedly, so keeping workout bouts relatively short can help with that so shorter bouts of exercise is more optimal.
So getting the timing and exercise combination right across your week, not too long or too short has been shown to be immensely beneficial for things like brain derived neurotrophic factor (increased connections in the brain), limiting inflammatory cytokines, for promoting anti-inflammatory cytokines, provided the exercise is of the proper duration and that its not so intense that your actually creating damage to the various systems of the body and your health breaks down.
Strength training with Taylormade is about stimulus to fatigue ratio to get optimal muscle hypertrophy. The optimal stimulus to grow more muscle. Crossfit for example = tons of fatigue but you never really hit failure super deliberately in any muscle group so the stimulus to fatigue ratio is horrible. So in our programme the goal is the highest stimulus to fatigue and the lowest time and equipment and remember the reasons for not thrashing yourself for long periods of time with lots of fatigue is that this can be detrimental to your health and we want to optimise your health so you can start to see how it fits the literature and research.
With the protocol we use you get greater stimulus for hardly any fatigue and hardly any time constraints with hardly any equipment which means that outside of our coached sessions you can continue at home. By trading intensity for duration, we can get our health benefits in a time frame that fits into your daily life. The highest lean mass to the lowest fat mass with this type of training and our nutrition advice also will help to maintain your metabolic health which means that the risk of diabetes, stroke, cardiac failure are all massively reduced.
If you are someone with limited time and your health is a priority then please send us an enquiry to learn more and to find out about the other parts of our programmes from nutrition, programming, pilates, injury management and mindfullness training to incorporate on your health journey.
