What is Sports Genetic Test?

Muscles are mainly composed of muscle fibers, and roughly divided into two types, "fast twitch" and "slow twitch". The propotion of fast and slow twitch muscle fibres different from person to person, it depends on the type of gene. In the sports genetic test kit, we examine the types of this gene.

The differences between fast and slow twitch muscle fibres

The fast twitch muscle fibre is a muscle that can contract quickly. Because it can emit energy instantaneously, it helps sports that require quick movement, such as short distance runs and goalkeepers. In the other hand, slow twitch muscle fibre is a slowly contracting muscle. Since it can emit energy in long term, it helps everyday life such as maintaining posture and walking, as well as sports that require endurance such as long distance marathon.

It is been known that "α actinin 3 protein", existing only in the fast muscle and genetically synthesized in the proportion of fast and slow muscle, is important for sport activities.

Base on ACTN3 gene for analysis

Whether "α actinin 3 protein" existing only in fast twitch muscles fibre is synthesized or not depends on the type of "ACTN 3 gene". If the gene is RR type, α actinin 3 protein is synthesized mostly also known as explosive type; if the gene is XX type, "α actinin 3 protein" is not synthesized also known as enduring type; if the gene is RX type, it will be balance type in between RR and XX types.

By analyzing "ACTN 3 gene" in this kit, you can understand your muscle type.

Explosive type

Easy to develop
fast twitch muscle fibre.

Balance type

Fast and slow muscle
are well developed.

Enduring type

Easy to develop
slow twitch muscle fibre.


Knowing the muscle type, knowing where to extend.

By this genetic test, even if the muscle type is not what you want, you don't have to be pessimistic. Knowing your type can make more appropriate sports with your way of training and eating habits.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do genetic tests tell me?

You can find out about your own constitution and the diseases that are likely to take place in the future. After we know the genetic risks, we can take appropriate precautions early on by reviewing our lifestyle.

How do I prioritize your advisements comparing to health check and medical report?

GeneLife test results are not diagnostic nor for medical use, and should not replace any current or previous diagnosis made by a physician. If you have been treated by a doctor or will be treated by a doctor in the future, please give priority to your doctor's guidance.

Will my genetic test results change over time? Do I need to take the test again?

Your DNA does not change during your lifetime (except under extreme circumstances), thus you need to take the test only once in your lifetime.

I am pregnant now, can I take the test?

You can take the test and it will not affect the result. Your DNA will be analyzed by spitting into a test tube, and your DNA results will not change due to your pregnancy. There is no harm to the child.

How do you preserve or manage personal genetic information and personal information?

We have implemented a thorough system to keep your personal genetic information and personal information in safe. According to regulation in Japan, personal genetic information is managed under the Personal Information protection law. We are a business operator handling personal genetic information, and the handling of personal genetic information and personal information is regulated by guideline from Ministry of Economy, Trade and industry (*1) and complied with the standards from CPIGI, non-profit organization, to ensure the accuracy of personal genetic information, safety management procedure, supervision from operators, and contractors. The customer analysis data is stored for one year from the time of the result delivery, so the result can be viewed at any time during that period. If you request to delete personal genetic information and personal information after the testing, we will follow your request as well.
