About Us

Hi, I’m Avi Silverberg and I am an author, coach, and the founder of RateYourBurn.com. I have previously studied for my Master’s of Science in Exercise Science from the University of Victoria

It was my honor to be the Head Coach for Team Canada Powerlifting for seven years, and I got to take them all the way from 30th in the world to 3rd. 

I have had more than 400 articles published on the topics of exercise, health, and nutrition, and I have been featured in the likes of MensJournal.com, LifeHacker.com, Barbend.com, T-Nation.com, and Bustle.com. With over 800,000 views a month on my work, I must be doing something right! 

I have been competing in international powerlifting competitions for more than 13 years now, with one of my highest personal achievements being winning the bronze medal for the World Bench Press Championships. I also bench pressed the National record of 661 pounds. 

A lot of hard work, sweat, and perseverance made me into the confident man today, feeling on top of the world in both physical and mental health. 

I hope to inspire you to get in the gym, start making healthier meals and get on the right track for building a better you. As the founder of multiple other websites focusing on proper powerlifting techniques and nutrition benefits, I feel confident that I can do just that.
