The Brauny Take: Vol. 1

Whats up CP peeps! I was recently asked to be a weekly blogger for Campus Protein and was pitched the idea to have my own series called “The Brauny Take”. Here is what we came up with: 


“The Brauny Take” will be a weekly blog every Tuesday where I will rant on about everything health and fitness related; from personal experiences to great tips and suggestions to help get you on your way to a healthier lifestyle. May even throw some fashion tips in there, but who knows…

If you’d like to contact me with your own inspirational stories or personal experiences that you’d like me to share, Tweet me @AndrewBrauny or Facebook message me. I’d love to hear from you whether its how I helped or what you liked and didnt like or other ideas on improving your lifestyle!

Shall we get started?

So, for my first take I’m going to write about myself. Surprised?



It’s my blog, so deal with it.

I want to tell you a little bit about myself before I start blogging away every week.

Fair enough?

Well I’m from New York and graduated from Indiana University with the lovely team from Campus Protein. I currently live in New York City and work for a real estate firm, but am also on my way to becoming a licensed personal trainer. As of now, I’m preparing to go to grad school to get my Masters in Nutrition and Personal Health next fall. (But things could change.) Not sure where I want to go yet, but it will probably be in NYC (Not worth living any place else). I have a real passion for nutrition and being healthy and living a healthy lifestyle. Everything I do revolves around health and staying physically fit. And yes, I’m considered a “gym rat”, and I LOVE IT

Honestly, I don’t really know what triggered this health obsession. All I remember was coming back from abroad in Florence in May of 2011 and realizing how disgustingly unhealthy I was for 5 months and wanted to change. Read my first blog “8 months and counting” to get the full story, because I’m done talking about this.

Anyways, long story short, I transformed my life within a few months and never looked back. It’s the greatest feeling in the world. You should try it sometime, just saying. It feels AMAZING! I love sharing my stories with people because it motivates them to change and honestly, that’s the second best feeling in the world. It’s contagious. Healthy living and nutrition is contagious and addictive, in a good way. Everyone that I live with or share my stories with is affected by it.

If you told me about 2 years ago that I would be a nutrition and health freak then I would have probably laughed in your face and went to Taco Bell (guilty pleasure). But now I gag at the very thought of fast food (I was never big on fast food anyways, except for Taco Bell, but only as drunk food – hmm thats an idea for next weeks take!).

So now I have to wrap this up because I want to save some material for next week. But just remember to eat your veggies and make your mommy proud.

But seriously, stay motivated till next week!! 

@AndrewBrauny OUT!
