/i//lj5.jpg We want to welcome you to the July, 2006 issue of Natural Champion, the online magazine devoted to developing drug free champions.

Our mission at Natural Champion is to promote physical excellence without the use of harmful and illegal performance enhancing drugs. Each month we’ll provide information – and, hopefully, inspiration - to help you attain the very highest standards of peak physical performance and vibrant, life-long health.
Natural Champion has more than doubled in size in only three issues. We are pleased to have you along as we continue to grow.

This month we pleased and honored to welcome Charles Letcher, MD to our staff as a contributing writer and editor. Dr. C is a unique individual: a graduate of West Point, a veteran of five years active duty in the U.S. Military, which duty included stints as a Special Forces operative, an experienced weight trainer, and a man of intelligence, passion and compassion. Don’t miss Dr. Letcher’s first article “Kick The Habit Before It Kicks Your Ass” in our new column Paging Dr. Letcher.

Other Features and Columns this month include:

Introducing… This month we're pleased to introduce two Natural Champions...
