Question: My brakes aren't working

My brakes on my 2000 Chevy Blazer just stopped working out of nowhere. I just drove about an hour ago and they were perfectly fine. When i went to start it they just went straight to the floor .. The fluid is full and there is no leak. But there is no brakes at all i don't know what to do but i can't drive it. I just got it inspected a couple months ago and got a few things done to it. There is not alot of miles on it its a good car and there was new breaks put in about 2 years ago.
