In brief: Very concerning

You'll want hepatitis b & c, hemochromatosis, wilson's, antitrypsin deficiency, and autoimmune hepatitis ruled out.
If they are ruled out, you may end up with a presumptive diagnosis of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, and if so, your key to better health may be renewing your commitment to a vigorous aerobic-fitness-focused lifestyle. Glad you're proactive; good luck.

And I do trust that your elevated transaminases are not due to medication or alcohol use. Again, good luck.
