Seventy Five Percent!

If you are a Brown's Boot Camper, you know the answer to this shout out is - NUTRITION!  We end every camp by reminding ourselves of this truth - total health takes more than just a good workout.  As we say - You can't out train a bad diet!  Our goal at this blog is to educate you on how your body works so you can give it the nutritional support to fuel your active life!
