You want the benefits of knowing the latest science-backed training and nutrition advice, but don’t have the time, energy, and money to sift through the journals, pick out which studies are applicable, analyze their design for trustworthiness, critically read them, and figure out how they apply to you training or your client’s training.
Going through the studies each month is extremely time-consuming (~80 hours/month, we’d estimate). Spending time figuring out how to apply them all is difficult. Having access to all the different journals is expensive. Interpreting research and figuring out which studies are trustworthy and applicable to you is frustrating. (And that's just the new stuff – there's at least 40-50 years of older research you need to be at least reasonably well-acquainted with as well.)

MASS does all the legwork for you and distills the studies that are the most useful and relevant for you each month.
