Description Of Bayesian Bodybuilding
Interested in advancing your fitness education? Due to the many requests for internships, recommended reading and evidence-based education, the Bayesian Bodybuilding team has developed a comprehensive educational course on the science and practice of personal training. You will learn the full Bayesian Bodybuilding methodology and become a Certified Bayesian Personal Trainer if you pass the exam.
The course is primarily aimed at personal trainers and other fitness professionals that coach clients or aspire to coach clients with the goal of muscle growth, fat loss or strength development. Health and psychology will also be discussed in detail. You don’t have to be a personal trainer to join the course: many non-professionals have already followed the course simply for the sake of self-improvement and their personal education.
The course is fully online, with the exception of a physical meet-up that will be recorded for those that can’t attend. The course covers the science and practice of strength training, muscle hypertrophy, strength development and fat loss. Health and psychology will also be discussed in detail.

I used to be business consultant specialized in advanced data analysis. While I had a great traditional career, my passion had always been in fitness. I saw the fitness industry was filled with broscience, supplement scams and fad diets. There was a dire need for data-driven and scientific information. I felt I could help. As it turned out, the best decision of my life was trading in my company car to pursue my passion in fitness.
I now help serious strength trainees get the most out of their physique with scientific fitness education. In addition to managing my online courses, I’m an online physique coach, scientific researcher and international public speaker.
In what little time I don’t spend working or educating myself, I slow-travel the world with my girlfriend in search of the planet’s most beautiful nature and tastiest sushi.
