You may have heard up mention this on our podcast this week, but we are huge fans of InsideTracker over here at Consummate Athlete HQ. Getting bloodwork done is kind of a P in the A at the best of times if you’re going through your doctor or naturopath, and unless you have baller insurance, it can get pricey. Plus, when a doctor is looking for something specific, he or she may not requisition a broad panel that actually goes deep and checks less obvious markers (like creatine kinase, one of Molly’s problem areas). So, we really like InsideTracker for making life and bloodwork easy. Not only does InsideTracker check a ton of biomarkers, you can even have someone show up to your door at a designated time to get your blood samples! (And it’s not nearly as pricey as you’d expect.)
We just got our bloodwork re-tested last week and got our results just a few day later. The woman drawing our blood showed up at 8AM and was done with both of us by 8:10. Easiest blood draw ever! Afterwards (and I’ll write more about this as the process continues), I saw that I had a few markers that were a bit out of whack, and I was pretty stressed about how to remedy them while still putting in huge volume. Because I’m feeling really good but I want to prioritize long-term health, I wanted to make sure that any changes I made were done in a smart way, so I booked an appointment with a registered dietitian who I know and trust to go over my results. She was psyched that I was able to send her a complete bloodwork panel, and I also followed up with some notes that included a typical day of eating as well as a week of training. We’re chatting tomorrow, and even though there’s obviously a price tag associated with all of these things, a) my health is worth it, and b) I think doing the bloodwork first is actually going to save me time and money in the long run because the dietitian and I can get right to ‘OK, what are we doing about this’ rather than debating what needs to get tested. Plus, as I said, I feel good in general—so if I didn’t have bloodwork showing that my iron stores are getting super low, I might not have mentioned anything that would hint to a dietitian that that was a concern.
Anyway, more on that as we progress… but I wanted to fill everyone in on InsideTracker’s amazing deal this week!

Whether your loved one runs, bikes, hikes, plays sports, or simply wants to improve their wellness, InsideTracker is the most personalized way to make sure their body stays in it for the long haul. Gift cards and clothes are impersonal and expected… so why not get your loved ones a gift that is truly special and unique to them. This Black Friday, save $200 on InsideTracker’s Ultimate Plan + Free InnerAge—the most comprehensive way to get personalized insight into their body’s wellbeing… Get it for a friend or (let’s be honest) grab it for yourself. (You can also simply save 25% sitewide at that link, if you want something like the Essentials Plan rather than going for the Ultimate.)
It’s worth mentioning that the holidays may not be the best time to squeeze in bloodwork, so don’t stress that you have to get it done ASAP if you’re super busy this season. Once you buy, you don’t have to immediately schedule the test—you can activate it whenever you want! (Though the mobile blood draw does make things suuuuuper easy and fast!)
