Randy Brown was overweight at 274 pounds and 44% body fat and felt uncomfortable with his body. When a friend encouraged him to try boot camp, he reluctantly joined. Through hard work and with support from his instructor, he transformed his body and felt better than ever before. Today, Randy is a certified personal trainer weighing in at 187 pounds with 7% body fat and wants to help others do what his instructor helped him to do years ago: get in shape, gain confidence, and build self esteem. Through the years, he has grown Brown's Boot Camp from one class of 25 students to 14 different camps, and some of his students have gone on to become personal trainers themselves, which speaks to the success of his workout regimen and the camp's communal atmosphere. Randy's program focuses on improving total fitness, which not only includes strength, cardio, and flexibility but also nutritional counseling. Brown's Boot Camp won the Readers' Choice Awards Best Gym/Personal Trainer on Tuscon.com, and also offers one-on-one personal training and chef services.
