Access to education is a right not a privilege.
Equality in education, health, and sustainability is important to me. I was lucky to be born into a social welfare system where higher education was free. Sadly, that is no longer true, so I want to provide access to education to folks from all walks of life by publishing free but exceptionally high-quality exercise and nutrition science content.

Any recommendations I make are, and always will be, based on my own views and opinions shaped by the evidence available. My recommendations have never and will never be influenced by affiliations, sponsorships, advertisement royalties, etc.
I have conducted biomedical research for which I have received research money from publicly-funded national research councils and medical charities, and also from private companies, including Novo Nordisk Foundation, AstraZeneca, Amylin, the A.P. Møller Foundation, and the Augustinus Foundation. I’ve also consulted for Boost Treadmills and Gu Energy on their R&D grant applications and I've provided research and science writing services for Examine. Some of my articles contain links to information provided by Examine but I do not receive any royalties or bonuses from those links. Importantly, none of these companies had any control over the research design, data analysis, or publication outcomes of my work.
To inform the Veohtu Train Smart Framework, I do my utmost to use state-of-the-art, consensus, peer reviewed, and published scientific evidence combined with my empirical evidence observed in practice and feedback from athletes.
The information I provide is not medical advice. Before making any changes to your habits of daily living based on any information I provide, always ensure it is safe for you to do so and always consult your doctor if you are unsure.
