New Year's resolution expectation: go to the gym 4 times a week. New Year's resolution reality: Cookie?! Where? It's the same every year. But what if we told you that there was a way to turn that expectation into a reality? Your own personal DNA is different from your friend, your boyfriend and your neighbor, therefore what works for them may not work for you. Strike while the iron's hot (a.k.a while you still taste the Christmas party app's on your fingers) and get yourself a FitnessGenes kit, the first of it's kind DNA test that analyzes 42 genes related to health and fitness and prescribes workout and nutrition plans based on your genetics. Your 2017 self will love you for it.
That's all friends!
