Gut Microbiome Test – The new era of personal training has arrived with and Ixcela

Certified health trainer Peter Marino and his personal training website with Ixcela provide microbiome testing for better health.

GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT, USA, September 17, 2022 / — Online fitness entrepreneur and personal trainer Peter Marino, the owner of, has partnered with Ixcela to offer comprehensive microbiome testing alongside its company’s signature nutrition and supplementation support programs. Although maintaining optimal gut health and eating the right diet have long been considered important keys to maximizing results from any fitness program, few personal trainers have learned how to help their clients in these areas. Many microbiome testing companies offer comprehensive panels without providing actionable follow-up plans, leaving customers wondering how to act based on the information they have received.

After suffering from IBS for over 15 years, Peter was able to manage his condition by gaining a detailed understanding of how his gut microbiome interacted with the foods he ate. After learning which foods were problematic, he armed himself with actionable information to change his food choices for the better. To give Posh Fitness customers the ability to achieve similar results, Peter has partnered with biotech company

Ixcela’s Internal Fitness™ home test produces detailed data points on key levels of metabolites produced by the microbiome, identifying which metabolites are currently at sub-optimal levels and which metabolites are out of alignment with each other . Among the metabolites measured by the Internal Fitness™ test are important neurotransmitters and amino acids, including serotonin and tryptophan.

Scientists have begun to recognize that the microbiome plays a very important role in metabolism, mood, sleep, energy production, weight loss, and recovery from physical training. Without access to the data provided by the Internal Fitness™ test, many avid exercisers inevitably hit a plateau in their weight loss efforts. In addition to reporting faster recovery times and easier weight loss, those who have used Ixcela’s microbiome metabolite testing also report improved sleep and recovery rates, reduced brain fog and longer lasting focus.

According to Marino, “The Ixcela metabolite test has greatly improved my quality of life as well as the clientele who have used the test. The health coaching included in my plans is very helpful for anyone who has plateaued with weight loss or if you’re trying to optimize your overall health.”

In line with the latest research, Ixcela’s Microbiome Panel breaks down test results into separate scores for GI Fitness, Immuno-Fitness, Emotional Balance, Cognitive Acuity, and Energy Efficiency. The Internal Fitness™ test uses 11 different metabolites in total, measuring compounds that can indicate dysbiosis, inflammation and intestinal permeability of gut bacteria. Research suggests that many of the panel’s metabolites also function as reliable markers of food sensitivities and nutritional imbalances, helping Peter’s clients eliminate suboptimal food choices for faster results.
