We’re a global fitness community built to help you get into fantastic shape WITHOUT the gym.
The community's run by me — Jerry Teixeira — a former Marine, current husband and Dad who went from fat... to fit... after years of struggling with an unhealthy lifestyle.
I've helped dozens of clients 1-on-1...
And this community is a way for me to help even more people get in shape.
We'll do this by applying time-tested strength training principles to minimalist exercises you can do at home... that build long-lasting strength... and improve your health.
That means we emphasize bodyweight exercises like push-ups, squats and pull-ups.
You'll build strength and avoid injuries... while transforming the way you look in the mirror.
The community is for:
People who want to cancel their expensive gym membership and at home, the park or even in the backyard
Beginners who’ve never followed a strength training program… or seen results in the gym… and are ready to try a simple, effective alternative
Folks who want to spend LESS time working out… and more time enjoying life
And intermediate-to-advanced lifters who want to try minimalist workouts (we have bodyweight-only and bodyweight + dumbbell workouts).
Everyone is welcome to join, but most of our members are age 40 and up.
You’ll find articles and training videos for everything from exercise to nutrition.
And we’re adding new content every week.
I host group calls once a month for all members.
This is a great way for members to get to know each other and get all their questions answered.
When you join the BWS community, you'll get instant access to three training programs for beginner and intermediate trainees (we’ll have at least five by the end of 2022).
Some of these programs will be sold outside the community for at least $20 each, but they're all included in your membership.
I’m in my mid to late fifties. One of my goals is to age well to avoid being frail and weak as I get older.
I’ve been absolutely amazed at my results since I started working with JT. My strength has definitely increased and my body is becoming visibly muscular. My shoulders and arms have visible muscle definition that I’ve never had before.
JT’s method of developing my workouts are highly effective and efficient. He also adds exercises to help me with my flexibility, mobility and stability, which will pay dividends when I get into my senior years.
I’m doing exercises at a level I never thought I’d be capable of doing. For example, he has me doing elevated push ups that we gradually are lowering towards the floor. Soon I’ll be doing full push ups at floor level. I’ve never been able to push ups before.
I’ve also lost 10lbs while gaining muscle!!
I’ve worked with several other coaches over the years and have never experienced the kind of results that I have since working with JT.
I’m extremely happy that I reached out to JT to help me because my results have exceeded my own expectations.
I’m very grateful to JT and highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness.’

I know we’re not the only fitness community out there...
And joining an online community can feel like a big decision.
There are all sorts of communities that support different diets (Paleo, vegan, etc) and training goals (bodybuilding, powerlifting, etc).
My goal is to make this a fun, supportive community for anyone who wants to build a strong body... and live a long, healthy life... without spending hours in the gym.
Plus you'll have instant access to everything you need.
If you ever get stuck, I’m always available to answer questions and I’ll usually get back to you within 24 hours.
"My name is Howell Ellerman, I am a 63-year old attorney, college professor, father of five and grandfather of two, married 34 years and counting.
I have followed Jerry Texiera on Twitter for years. Earlier in my life, I was quite active and took pride in my fitness up till my mid-40s. Kids, cancer, and then Covid conspired to derail my regular exercise regimen and I became increasingly sedentary. The isolation of working from home for the past three years kept me from venturing out, going to the gym, and left me somewhat depressed. I gained 20 pounds over the course of several years. I stopped going to the gym completely. I felt that this was the natural consequence of hitting the other side of middle age, and I would just continue to just age and get worse.
I was looking for something to help me get out of my funk.
When you follow someone who is an “influencer” on Twitter, you get a fairly good bead on their character. Are they on the make? Do they punch down? Can they engage people and motivate them? I found Jerry’s interactions to be common-sense, no bullshit, simple and thoughtful. Even my two fitness-buff sons knew who he was.
Then, last July, Jerry announced he was taking new one-on-one clients for fitness and diet coaching. I talked to my wife, who has engaged a life coach for years to guide her professional career, and she was very positive about my partnering with Jerry to find a way to move from inertia to momentum.
I began working with Jerry. I shared my goals of losing ten pounds and gaining muscle and tone. After the initial consultation, Jerry created a tailored workout and diet plan for me that I did not vary. The app that he uses was very helpful for me to stay consistent, and Jerry is what I described to my wife as an “amicable tyrant.” My reps went up and the exercises continued to get progressively difficult. I have not missed a full workout in seven months. We have fine-tuned the regimen over the months, and I have made impressive gains.
When I injured myself, for instance, (once elbow, once an old shoulder Injury), Jerry showed me how to work through the injury and become pain free. I could have never done that without his guidance. I would have just quit.
Doing a bodyweight at-home workout regimen is ideal for me because it takes away the excuses of getting to a gym, scheduling, etc. I work out three times a week and that has made a huge difference in my body composition and mental health. I walk on my off-days, which is good for my mood.
I have lost 20 pounds of fat and gained ten pounds of muscle. Visiting old friends over the holidays, several complimented my physique, saying, “Geez Howell, you got buff.” When I was going through the workout with one of my very fit sons at Christmas, he took off his shirt to workout and I did too. He said, “Damn, Dad — nice pecs!” Recently I had to go to an in-person department meeting, and I went to put on an old dress shirt and it was too tight — not in the gut, but in the chest!
I’m in the best shape I have been in since my early 40s. I never thought I would get here again. I wouldn’t have without help.
I still have work to do, but working with Jerry I feel like I can achieve whatever I want. My investment in myself by engaging him is the best thing I have done for my own health and wellness in 20 years.
I can’t recommend Jerry highly enough. He truly changed my life.
I feel like I haven’t only delayed the onset of old age, but I have arrested it. Having lost my parents this year, and with two new grandchildren to enjoy growing old with, I feel optimistic that these upcoming years could easily be my best.
Q. Who Should NOT Join The BWS Community?
If you’re a hardcore gym bro who likes to barbell squat, bench press and deadlift, that’s totally cool. But the community won’t be a good fit.
Also, if you’re not going to do the workouts I’m going to suggest you don’t join.
I don’t expect you to workout 7 days a week, but I do hope that you’ll make the effort to exercise and eat healthy meals (we even have a 2-day a week program for busy people, so there’s no excuse).
Q. What Happens After I Pay?
The community is hosted on the Mighty Networks platform.
You'll get a confirmation email after you pay (usually within 5 minutes).
Make sure you follow the instructions and create your Mighty Networks account right away.
Then you’ll be able to access the community on your desktop, tablet or mobile app.
Q. What If I Want To Cancel My Membership?
You’re free to cancel any time, so there's zero risk.
But... we don't think you'll want to :)
We've worked hard to create a community where members can feel supported AND get results.
But if you feel like the BWS community isn't for you, canceling your membership is easy. All it takes is a few clicks.
Q. Do You Offer Any Guarantees?
I guarantee I'll do everything I can to help you get in shape.
But I can’t do the exercises for you, do your grocery shopping or force you to go to bed on time.
That’s all up to you.
