“Lift weights. You’ll look and feel years younger. And this new technology may be the easiest and cheapest way to get there fast.”
“Ever since I got hit by a car in college, I’ve looked for new and better ways to become healthy, lean, and fit. AI is the next frontier in fitness, and if you’re doing any form of weight lifting, you should definitely check this new technology out.”
“90% of people over the age of 35 lose enough muscle every year to burn off an additional 4 pounds of body fat. Don’t let this happen to you. Lift weights. You’ll look and feel years younger. And this new technology may be the easiest and cheapest way to get there fast.”
“This app could get a whole lot of people on track integrating the modern science-based approach to building muscle mass and strength”
This new app looks like a winner. The app figures out sets, reps, volume, loading, and so forth, and does a damn good job of delivering a customized workout based on the individuals progress – or lack there of – using what’s called “Daily Undulating Periodization” or DUP.”
Thank you so much for supporting Dr. Muscle! Earlier this year, you helped us launch version 2.0 on Indiegogo. Your feedback is amazing. We raised 48 366$, were featured in Indiegogo’s team favourites, and trened as high as first place on their home page!
Now that all 193 backers got their rewards,
we’re ready to build on that success and
create the next major release of Dr. Muscle
Help us create Dr. Muscle 3.0

A Personal Invitation From Dr. Carl Juneau
“If you’ve always wanted to get in top shape, then this may be the most important invitation you get this year.”
My name is Dr. Carl Juneau. I’m an exercise scientist with a PhD in health statistics. I’ve been a coach all my life and a trainer for the Canadian Forces. I’ve helped about 10,000 people get in shape I-on-I, in group classes, and online.
That’s how I found out that training is hard. It requires time, knowledge, and motivation. And just when you think you’re doing everything right, you can still get injured, get stuck, or lose motivation, and quit. And when you quit, you lose all your gains, and you have to start all over again… And if that’s ever happened to you, you know how tough that is. Take it from me: I know.
In 2009, suddenly, I had trouble eating. I had no energy, couldn’t train, and felt my IQ had dropped 15 points. I used to get on the scale at least once a week to track my progress. But I stopped doing that: it was becoming too painful to see I was losing all the gains I’d worked so hard to make. Have a look:
On this chart, On the left, you can see that in 2005, when I got on the scale for the first time, I weighed 143 lbs. In 2009, 4 years later, I had gained 18 lbs of muscle. I was proud Of that!
But by 2010, I was down to 140 lbs—see that big dip on the right?
What happened is I had become intolerant to gluten. But doctors took one year to find out. So that year, I couldn’t eat, couldn’t train, and I ended up lighter than when I first started out.
4 years of training:
gone – just like that!
By 2011, I had learned to manage gluten. I moved to London (England) for my PhD. And I started training with Dave Beattie.
Dave was a 5-time world champion in powerlifting, and a world-record holder in the squat. And while training under him…
“I gained back 21 lbs in 3 months.”
Now granted, when you gain back muscle you’ve lost, it’s quicker. But still, in 3 months, I gained as much muscle as I had in 4 years.
What I should have done from the start (and what you should do) is to focus on a single fundamental training principle. Every good trainers knows this. My coach Dave in London knew it. In fact, it’s exactly what the American College Of Sports Medicine recommends (ACSM, 2009).
And that principle is progressive overload. Progressive overload just means that to get in better shape, you need to “overload” your workout…
But the way you “overload” has to be very specific: you must increase at least one Of the major training variables Of your workout progressively… so that you keep on challenging your body to transform.
Just by increasing the load, or repeating each exercise more times, you make your body think :
“Oh dear! This is new, and unexpected I need to improve”
And your body will improve and adapt by building muscle and burning fat. Over time, men usually end up quite muscular, and women, more sculpted; and both get leaner.
Plus, when you improve your fitness :
Your improve your health
Your improve your looks
Your improve your energy
Your improve your strength
Your improve your muscle mass
Your improve your confidence
Your improve your mood
You even improve your sex life!
You improve your self. I believe in self-improvement, and I really believe getting in shape is one Of the best ways you can improve. It’s helped me tremendously.
But to make it work for you, your workout needs to start at your level, and improve with you. And the best way to ensure that, is to let a personal trainer guide you, motivate you, and update your plan in real time, as you do it. But trainers are expensive…
I know: I’ve been a trainer for 18 years. Here are just some Of the men and women I’ve helped :
Now their results are not typical, and if you really want to get in shape, you’ll need time, knowledge, and motivation. That’s why training is hard. And why so many people fail, especially when they try to do it alone, without a trainer.
So, in 2016, I finished my PhD, I gathered a small team, and we started building this new technology. Our vision was to give you the ability to improve almost as fast as if you had trainer, but for much cheaper.
With this technology, you apply all the latest science and the proven tricks of an experienced trainer, automatically. Under the hood, your training is built around progressive overload. Your program :
– Starts at your level
– Gets more challenging as you get in better shape (it adjusts to you)
– Adds new exercises as you become more experienced, fitter, and stronger
– Updates in real time when you work out based on your feedback
– Gives you a challenge when you feel great – Gives you a break when you’re tired
In short, it’s more advanced, so you get in shape faster with us.
It’s also more fun, easy, and fast. As one early access customer put it: ‘It’s like a surprise every workout”.
Exercise by exercise, workout by workout, Dr. Muscle can take you from the beginner stage to the advanced level. It automates almost everything, through the entire process. It’s like a personal trainer in your phone, but 10 times cheaper, always up to date, evidence-based, and 59% faster.
Training changed my life. I’ve seen it change the lives Of hundreds Of people. And it could change your life, too. But it’s hard. That’s why we’ve created Dr. Muscle. We’re making training a rewarding experience, simple, and fun again. Come get in shape and improve with us. It could change your life.

Risks and challenges
We’ve been building this app for 2 years. To be honest, it wasn’t easy. We started out with just 3 people, an idea, and little money. I wasn’t sure the idea would stick. The main risk was spending all the money we could raise to build our prototype, just to see it fail.
But today, we’ve already fine tuned our prototype with data from 655 early access customers, and we’ve had a successful launch (for version 2.0) on Indiegogo. All backers got their rewards, we make enough money to keep the ball rolling, and we’re here to stay. How much funding we get will only influence how fast and how big version 3.0 will be. So, you don’t risk backing this project and getting nothing in return.
Building the right features is another challenge. My job is to make sure we build the features you want. My boss is you. To get your feedback, we’ve set up a special website. There, customers (like yourself) get to suggest and vote for new features. We implement features with the most votes first. So, we really value customer feedback. And when you become a customer, we will reach out and want to hear from you.
