Boston biotech company partners with local luxury fitness club to improve gut health and wellness Ixcela Collaborates with Lynx Fitness Club

Ixcela: The Internal Fitness™ Company has announced a collaboration with Lynx Fitness Club. Lynx Fitness Club will offer members access to Ixcela test kits and, using members’ Ixcela results, Lynx Fitness Club’s trainers and onsite nutritionist will work directly with members to improve their overall health outcomes.

The Ixcela approach focuses on restoring internal health using a sophisticated, yet simple, pinprick blood test that evaluates key metabolites associated with the gut microbiome. Ixcela develops personalized solutions based on the blood test results to improve the gut microbiome through fitness plans, dietary supplements, and nutritional plans. A balanced gut microbiome coupled with a healthy diet and regular physical activity can improve immune function, energetic efficiency, cognitive acuity, and emotional balance—aligning with Lynx Fitness Club’s mission of redefining and creating the best fitness community in Boston.

As a premier fitness club, Lynx prides itself on developing a community of individuals with shared health and wellness interests. By generating tangible results, members are encouraged to improve overall well-being and reach attainable fitness goals.

“The best way we can deliver our clients results is by quantifying them,” said Bill Najam, co-founder and chief executive of Lynx Fitness Club. “It’s hard to quantify exercise and nutritional results unless you’re working with a measurable test. Ixcela makes it easy for us to work with members on the nutrition and fitness side and understand what their baseline is when they start and understand how they progress as they work with our in-house trainers and nutritionist to improve their health holistically.”

“We’re delighted to bring Lynx Fitness Club members the benefits of Ixcela,” said Dr. Erika Ebbel Angle, co-founder and CEO of Ixcela. “The link between gut health and physical and mental health is irrefutable and by working with members, we’re able to bring more awareness to preventative health issues and help Boston achieve balanced health.”

Lynx Masters of Nutrition is accessible to members for onsite nutrition education and training. Ixcela test kits will be available in single and full-length programs. Test kits will be recommended by Lynx Fitness Club nutritionists and trainers on a case-by-case basis.
