Colorado Springs, CO - USA Weightlifting and InsideTracker today announced a partnership between them which aims to optimize the performance of Team USA through blood-based analysis. 

Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, InsideTracker provides sophisticated, science-based blood analytics through the measurement and analysis of over forty biomarkers. InsideTracker gives athletes a true picture of their inner workings, their biochemistry, and arms them with crucial information that can lead to improved performance on the platform. 

“InsideTracker provides a unique service that we believe can have a measurable benefit for our athletes,” USA Weightlifting CEO Phil Andrews said. “We believe if our athletes get a complete picture of what’s happening with their bodies on the inside, they will be better equipped to make decisions that will benefit their performance.” 

Over the course of the 2017 competition season, InsideTracker will provide their Ultimate testing plan for USA Weightlifting’s elite athletes. The Ultimate test measures 41 different biomarkers including testosterone, cortisol, creatine kinase, markers of metabolism, and more - all markers of performance readiness, recovery, and overall health. The participating athletes will be selected by USA Weightlifting’s sports performance team.

"We are thrilled to partner with USA Weightlifting,” InsideTracker CEO Rony Sellam said. “It is an honor to provide these outstanding athletes with personalized health and nutrition recommendations that will propel them to the top of the podium as they proudly represent our country." 

USA Weightlifting will follow the participating athletes throughout the year and document their progress to see how InsideTracker has helped their training and performance.
