Abstract

The ability to rapidly determine the aptitude and the level of physical fitness, through molecular screening methods has implications in many different fields. These fields range from healthcare to athletics and to the military. It is necessary to discover and investigate molecular markers which are robust, can be observed at either elevated or lowered levels after short or prolonged exercise(s) regimes or during sedentary periods, and are accurate indicators of the physical fitness and lifestyle of an individual. It will also be necessary to develop point-of-care devices and corresponding analytical methods to make analysis of these molecular markers simple and cost effective. Identifying molecular markers of physical fitness accurately reflects that health and fitness status have a significant impact in the overall well-being of an individual through prevention and management of disease.
