Welcome to DNA Fitness by Laura
It was 26 years ago I eagerly started in the fitness industry Aberdeen, Scotland because I wanted to be healthy for my children. With two very young beautiful children at the time, I excitedly embarked on my exercise to music course to educate me, give me a skill to work and to teach my children how to be active and eat healthily.
Luckily for me all my wonderful children are active as adults, it paid off for me. They all enjoy being active, either walking, snowboarding, playing rugby or simply hill walking. I enjoy being with them watching or taking part with them being active around Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
Even though I have done a vast array of fitness industry qualifications in the last 26 years, my best skill is enabling people to learn, about themselves and what is important to them. Health and fitness was really important to me in my early 30’s. It’s now more important than ever as I want to enjoy my life with my family and all our activities together. To do this, I need to be physically fit and able with my wellness for longevity.
With many years experience and vast education in the field I have worked with many clients to support them successfully achieve their goals. I can support you to learn about you.
DNA fitness by Laura is all about you. I ask you the right questions in order to give you the right information that you can successfully achieve your goals for life and most importantly about you. Your DNA reports are a fantastic starting point to being successful with your health, body weight and fitness. They remain a motivating tool for the rest of your life.
Let me share my experience and expertise with you as you design your future health with me and your DNA reports.
This programme is suitable for both adult men and women. A healthy diet and lifestyle is the goal of the detox programme. However, many of my clients have experienced weight loss too. Weight loss over the 10 days is not guaranteed, but can occur. Amount of weight loss differs form individual to individual. Some have reported a loss of 3lbs of body weight whilst other have lost 7lbs in the 10 days. It is then very common for people to permanently maintain some changes made during detox. Particularly when coupled with advice of the DNA fit reports, your experience of the detox programme keeps you motivated for longer as you understand your own body’s requirements.
MetaClear has been expertly formulated by Metagenics to provide a high strength complex of well-researched vitamins, minerals and botanical extracts to support liver function. The liver is responsible for processing toxins we produce and are exposed to on a daily basis.
Key nutrients including vitamin B2, C and E play an essential role in protecting our cells from oxidative damage. Modern living can have a detrimental impact on our ability to protect against oxidative stress which causes damage to our cells, with factors such as chronic stress, environmental toxins and smoking all negatively contributing.
MetaClear contains choline, a vitamin-like substance which supports healthy liver function and the healthy metabolism (breakdown and absorption) of fats. Choline plays a similar role to the B vitamins in supporting metabolic processes in the body required for energy production. Is it also required for the transportation of fats from the liver to cells across the body, thereby ensuring fat does not accumulate in the liver. Why is it important to use standardised botanical extracts? Standardised extracts ensure a consistent level of active ingredient. For example, we can guarantee that every two tablets of MetaClear will contain 50mg green tea, providing 50% polyphenols, 20-30% catechins and between 7 and 13% EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) – the active components of green tea. Extracts which are not standardised will not guarantee a particular level of active ingredient.
You may experience, during the withdrawal phase of detox, symptoms such as being irritable, headaches, lethargy, loss of concentration. However, during your success planning you are advised and guided so that any symptoms which may be experienced are minimised. The Purition protein powder is used to minimise loss of concentration and any potential low energy. As the body adjusts to eating different foods, individual reactions may differ. All efforts have been made to minimise symptoms. This is not a fasting programme.
Laura’s advice is always to consult your healthcare professional before commencing the detox, if you have any health concerns. For anyone on medication, please consult your doctor prior to commencing detox. For people who have Type 2 diabetes, please consult your diabetic nurse or consultant prior to signing up for detox. The aim of the plan is to achieve a healthy diet. It will depend on what your diet currently consists of and how different the detox diet might be for you as to the potential for symptoms. This is not a fasting programme, it is an interesting insight into how your body process food and how your mind reacts to food. PLEASE DO NOT STOP OR CHANGE MEDICATION WHEN ON THE DETOX WITHOUT MEDICAL ADVICE.
This programme is especially suitable for women experiencing peri menopause or menopause. Many menopause symptoms can be effectively managed with cruciferous vegetables, dairy alternatives and managing gluten, reducing refined sugars and alcohol intake. As this detox programme eliminates these foods for 10 days you are in a better position to decide which foods are adversely affecting your menopause. You will be surprised how well you can manage your menopause symptoms with the right food. 10 days that will change your mindset towards food and how it affects you. 10 days to change how your food is affecting your menopause.
You will feel energised, informed and happy by the end of the 10 days of detox. With your newly found energy and feeling good you’ll want to keep it going. It is important to gradually bring one of the food groups back into your diet for 3 days, wait to see if there is any adverse effect, if not bring another food group in for 3 days, and so on, until all food groups have been reintroduced. You may feel that there are some food groups which will not come back into your diet. That is your informed choice to be able to make. Receiving your DNA fit reports will clarify some of the information you know about your body after the 10 days of detox. Knowing all this about your body will give you the right formation to keep these changes going for the benefit of your health. DNA fit reports help you to understand you, so your motivation in making healthy choices is life long.
Laura will always encourage people to be active, it’s within her DNA to encourage movement. It is the lack of movement at a joint which causes discomfort and potentially pain. Laura provides access to exercise videos which are delivered with beginners in mind. However, it is always your choice as to what kind of physical or daily activity you do. You are encouraged to plan exercise into your 10 days detox diary to ensure you have the time to do it. Having a healthy body and mind is not only about the food you eat but about the exercise you to also.

I recently took part in Laura’s DNAFitness Trial. The 10 day detox was actually quite a good thing to do. I have never previously excluded gluten from my diet and the “Free From” aisle in Sainsbury was actually surprisingly good with a good selection of items to choose from. I was able to prep most of the meals in advance which I think is a must of you are going to try and do this detox properly. There is gluten on so many things!
I was really interested in the DNA results as it wasn’t anything I had done previously, the results didn’t take long to come through and some of metrics that came back where good to know, it has helped me tailor my workout regime and my food plan to match my genetics.
- I want to thank you for introducing me to your DNA fitness programme. I have found it really easy to follow, maintain and am achieving great personal results!The detox at the start of the programme was easy to follow, and although a couple of sugar cravings the detox left me feeling full of energy and focused! Continuing from there, I have found my tastes have changed, and I know longer crave to eat some of the things I used to think of as “a treat”! And then receiving my DNA results with the identified areas of fitness was so interesting and began to make so much more sense after having my 2hour session with you to devise my fitness plan specifically to fit with my DNA, honestly this has been an absolute game-changer!Thank you, I am highly recommending to all my friends and family as everyone needs to be this body aware.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to sign up for your DNA Fitness Trial.
Whilst I do try to keep an eye on my health through exercise and diet, I found your programme so interesting and informative, and was amazed at what I learned about the foods and exercises which best suited my DNA Profile.
The support, guidance and humour of you and the others in the group was invaluable, and made for a very interesting and informative process.
Great fun and good health – What more could anyone ask for?
I would like to thank Laura of DNA Fitness for the advice and allowing me to sign up to her trial. It was very easy to follow, fun and engaging with fellow members on the WhatsApp group. I am quite overweight and thought this would be a good way to watch what I am eating. Using the simple step by step structure, I was amazed to learn that I had lost 5kg in 5 days, just by eating more fruit, drinking more water and watching the food intake. The Purition meal was exactly what I needed for each day.
I found that I was able to still enjoy the odd night out and get back on the trial. With this, I was able to maintain healthy eating, exercise and social outings.
The DNA Fit results allow me to continue this on my own and maintain this lifestyle. I highly recommend Laura’s services for anyone looking to increase their health and wellbeing in a fun, informative way.
