Brett reppin in Tahoe! bretttahoe

Sup peeps! Alright, few things on the agenda today. First of all, the Alpha Hippo Beast Challenge Program (formerly the Mansformation) will be open for registration on Sunday evening. There will be only 10 spots and you will need to submit an application. This will not be for everyone. If you are serious about get results and getting lean, mean, and beastly in the next 6 weeks, then this will be for you. Since we're going to be working very closely with you guys on nutrition and training, there will only be room for dedicated people.
