Hello and welcome to Drew Baye’s High Intensity Training! If you want to build a stronger, leaner, more muscular body you’ve come to the right place.

My goal with this blog is to teach you how to build muscle, lose fat, and get fit. I do that by sharing my knowledge and experience from over twenty years a personal trainer, including everything I do to help my own clients achieve their fitness goals.

Like many of you I started working out because I wanted to be stronger and more muscular, to have an action-hero body. Unfortunately, I wasted years following conventional exercise programs and methods that produced little in the way of results before learning about high intensity training. I was skeptical at first, but within six months I had transformed my body from a skinny 150 pounds to a muscular 180.


People started asking me for advice and to teach them how to train, and I found I enjoyed helping people achieve their fitness goals so much I decided to make a career of it. I moved to central Florida where I would have the opportunity to learn from some of the top experts in high intensity training from Nautilus, and started training people and writing about what I learned. Now, over twenty years later, I’ve helped thousands of people accomplish their fitness goals, and I hope to help you, too.
