Test Preparation:
Fasting is preferred (i.e. no eating or drinking anything besides water for 8 hours prior to testing). Morning collection recommended.
Testing Method:
Blood draw

Our most comprehensive panel for athletes, this Endurance Athlete Panel includes 13 tests designed for endurance athletes wanting to stay at the top of their game. This panel analyzes your lipids, CRP, glucose, iron, vitamins and other key nutrients your body needs to keep you in peak physical condition. Results are available in just a few days and your physician or trainer will be able to help you understand the results, identify areas of improvement, and outline a diet and training regimen that works for you.

The Endurance Athlete panel includes the following:

  • Lipid Panel
  • C-Reactive Protein (CRP) High Sensitivity
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
  • Glucose
  • Hemoglobin A1c
  • Estradiol
  • Complete Metabolic Panel (CMP)
  • Ferritin
  • Iron & Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC)
  • Vitamin B12
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy
  • Calcium

Endurance Athlete Panel (13 Tests) 

For our Endurance Athlete Panel, simply place your order online and stop by one of our 4000+ nationwide testing facilities at your convenience (no appointments). A member of the center’s staff will collect a small blood sample via the skin prick method, at which point your part of the process is done.  

The sample collection itself takes only a few minutes, and most patients are in and out and about their day in under half an hour. From there, your sample will be processed in a CLIA-certified laboratory, and in as little as 24-72 hours, you’ll have full results regarding your sports performance.

Common Symptoms of Endurance Issues in Athletes

Elite endurance performance is a vital component of any sport at the highest level of competition. Endurance athletes can maintain output for long periods because of their high capacity for anaerobic energy production. However, these athletes often have to follow an intensive training regimen. 

Consequently, these individuals are at risk for problems relating to overuse or exercise-related medical conditions. These problems can lead to chronic fatigue and loss of performance in endurance athletes. Although elite-level athletes are typically in their 20s or 30s, athletes in endurance sports span all ages. 

Some of the common symptoms of chronic fatigue and loss of performance in endurance athletes include: 

  • A decrease in performance despite training 
  • Increased rates of illness and injury
  • Feeling burnt out or stale
  • Mood changes
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Anorexia
  • Fatigue
  • Poor sleep — or lack thereof

These symptoms can be triggered or exacerbated by other stressors. Training designed to enhance strength can improve endurance performance by reducing the relative intensity of a muscular action or increasing efficiency. However, trainers must establish the root cause of the issue by ordering an Endurance Athlete Panel. 

How to Interpret Your Results

Our Endurance Athlete Panel analyses the most critical biomarkers to improve physical performance and identifies the nutrition, supplements, lifestyle, and exercise interventions to optimize them. The tests determine the optimal zone for each marker based on the latest peer-reviewed research. 

These biomarkers can identify factors such as injury risk, cardiovascular endurance, muscle status, hydration status, dietary deficiencies, and inflammation. All these can influence an athlete’s recovery, health, and success, allowing greater optimization. Our Endurance Athlete Panel includes the following tests: 

  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel — which includes Blood Glucose Level, Kidney Profile, Liver Panel, and Fluids & Electrolytes test. 
  • Thyroid-stimulating Hormone (TSH) Blood Test
  • Lipid Panel Blood Test
  • Testosterone Total Serum Test 
  • Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy Test
  • Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) Test for Diabetes
  • Cardiac Risk Assessment

You can access the results of your Endurance Athlete Panel via our secure online portal. The results panel will likely include a ‘reference range’ column, indicating the normal generic range for each marker, and a ‘flag’ column. Here, you can find the outcome of each test, reported as either normal or abnormal.

Endurance Athlete Panel Vs. Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP)

As an athlete, both Endurance Athlete Panel and Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) tests can help you improve your performance by identifying and addressing your body’s specific needs. A Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) is usually included under the Endurance Athlete Panel.


  • Any athlete whose sport requires particular physical exercise over a long-time period without getting exhausted. You don’t need to go pro to be considered an endurance athlete. 

  • As an athlete, certain blood tests can give you a clearer picture of what’s going on with your body. This insight can help you optimize performance. 

  • Athletes need to track various biomarkers, including glucose, insulin, testosterone, ferritin, and more. Various tests, such as our Endurance Athlete Panel, track these biomarkers to identify factors that can help athletes optimize performance.
