Wanted: endurance athletes with a sportive challenge in 2017

The positive link between exercise and health is obvious. Nevertheless the border between heathy and excessive training is still vague. Every year many athletes deal with overtraining and don’t achieve their objectives.


Sportana, the sport research group of Anacura, is organizing the third round of intakes for their scientific study in search for new blood and salivary markers to trace the risk for overtraining. For this study, they are still looking for endurance athletes who are training at least 4 times a week to fulfill a sportive challenge in 2017. All detailed information (in Dutch) can be found here.


The study does not interact with the training schedule of the athletes and participants will receive the results of 2 free blood analysis. They will be monitored with the SpartaNova diary system, to help detect overtraining.


To participate in the study, the first step is to fill out an intake questionnaire. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact the Sportana team at sportana@anacura.com.
