    Epigenetic testing programme and the amazing results ultra Athlete Gus Benzie got
    Neil Wagstaff, Exercise Scientist from Running Hot coaching interviews our longstanding athlete Gus Benzie about her health, fitness and ultra marathon running journey and the difference understanding her Epigenetic profile has made for her results. The epigenetic express programme is a tool developed by hundreds of scientists over the past 20 years, in fact 15 science disciplines contributed to the making on this programme which dives deep in to the genetics of the client to help them discover just how their unique genes are expressing. Clients fill in a very intensive questionaire and the results help clients define such things as the best foods and lifestyle choices for you to be at your healthiest! What time of the day you should eat or train, exactly what foods will help your body, what type of exercise you are suited to, what time of day your hormones rebuild through your personality traits, strengths and weaknesses. It is literally the future of personalised health and gives us as coaches and as clients personalised knowledge that changes the way we live and the results we see. How does ph360 work? Your programme starts with a health test including measurments taken of your unique body and questions about your health history, genetic lineage, environment and lifestyle. Over 10,000 data points are captured during this process, and this data is then used to calculate your current state of health and corresponding health advice. Ever wondered why you don't get the results your neighbour when you do the same training programme, or why you put on weight with the same diet as another loses it on. The answers are in this platform. Your body changes from day to day. You lose weight or gain it, your hair or nails become brittle, you get pimples, they go away, you get flaky, you get oily – you are constantly changing. So why would your health plan stay the same? As you update your data in ph360 – like the condition of your hair, skin, where you live, your work, your travel, and the shape and measurements of your body – ph360 recalculates your recommendations. Always have access to the most current lifestyle and diet for your body! For more information please contact us at or email
