Are you struggling with finding your way back into exercising?

It’s confusing right! It was confusing for me to get back to working out after a major health scare, even though, I am career personal trainer that has trained thousands of people over the years.

I was nervous because I had never been in this situation before. It was the first time I realized how my clients felt.

I was so naïve before and handled most of my client the wrong way.

My name is Brian Rainey and I am part of a group of YPBERS!

We do our “Our Personal Bests” Regardless of our Current Situation!

I didn’t need some sophisticated workout program.

What I needed was simple and it is what most people need when getting started again.

Unfortunately, you will be bombarded with advertising messages as soon as you start expressing interests in working out again.

You’ll see advertisements for:

Beach Body,



Orange Theory,

Camp Gladiator,

Joining a Gym,

Hot Yoga,


9 Rounds Boxing,

And the list goes on and on!

Your friends, family and co-workers will try to convince you to do something that they are doing. And statistically you will probably do it and fail!

Why? Because you start with the WRONG ENTRY POINT!

This is the big secret and if you want to avoid making this mistake then keep reading!

You need to start your exercise program like a hedgehog!

What? I am guessing you’ve never heard the story of the hedgehog and the fox?

Every day the fox tries to attack the hedgehog and eat him as a tasty snack. But every day the fox fails because the hedgehog has this one (singular) effort it deploys during the hedgehog’s attack.

It rolls into a ball and uses it spikes to keep the fox away. The fox always fails regardless of how it approaches the hedgehog. The hedgehog has the right strategy!

You need the right strategy to start a new exercise program.

My health was terrible, and I was about to give up. In my messed-up mind I was sort of okay with having another heart attack and taking my place six feet deep. See, I kept starting and failing at getting back into shape because I was at the wrong Entry Point.

For me I needs a simple strategy like the hedgehog instead of using the usual suspects.

👉I tried P90X

👉I tried Insanity

👉I tried joining 2 different gyms

And I ended up injured or I was too sore to exercise the next day, and I just gave up.

One day, I was so feed up that I went for a walk. I was having some bad thoughts about my life.

Fortunately for me, something awesome was happening inside of my body during that walk. My body was dumping some hormones into my system that made me feel better. I was getting a good dose of dopamine and norepinephrine!

These hormones make you feel better.

💡The light bulb went off in my head.💡


So, I continued walking every day for a couple of weeks and the next thing you know…I was feeling better and looking better. I no longer had those thoughts of having a heart attack and being okay with it. I wanted to get better and guess what, I did!

The big secret is that you need the right entry point. For most people, it is as simple as walking and once you make it habit, then, you enter into a more complete workout program like the one that I used to transform my body and health.

In 90 days, I was able to lose over 20 pounds and get off the 6 medications I was taking to keep myself alive!
