How to Get an A+ in Weight Loss

By Ben Supik

​Think back to a challenging course you took during your academic career. Perhaps it was AP Calculus in high school, or a physics lab in college. A course that you had to pass because it was required for your graduation. There are a lot of lessons learned during that experience that are comparable to a successful weight loss endeavor.


Fat Loss is Not Good For You, But Having Lost Fat Is

By Ben Supik

Happy Holidays! Have you ever found yourself perpetually kinda sorta trying to lose weight? For the past six months you’ve been cutting back on sweets and seconds, but have a hard time saying no to drinks with dinner. Or you’ve been diligently tracking your food four and a half days out of every seven. During this time you may have seen some progress, but not enough to get you to your goal.

The River Is Always Flowing, But You Can Always Paddle

By Ben Supik

You have a paddle with you on this raft, so when you find a spot along the river you especially enjoy, you can row against the water's current to slow your pace and hang out at that spot a bit longer. With aggressive paddling, you can even go back up stream to a spot you past earlier. And if you don’t mind where the river is headed, you don’t have to row at all. But you always have a choice as to where on the river you’re heading.

So how can we make sure that when you don’t follow your plan that it’s the type of indiscretions that don’t interfere with your progress?

Good, Fast, Cheap, But Not All Three

By Ben Supik

n 2016, my gym, Activate Body, was getting ready to expand. We were moving into a new space that used to be a wood working shop. At the time, the space had no air-conditioning, no finished floors, it didn’t even have a bathroom. Needless to say, the build-out would be extensive. Friends who had hired contractors for similar build-outs cautioned “When searching for your contractor, you can find a crew that can do quality work, a crew that can do timely work, or a crew that can do low cost work, but you’ll never find all three qualities in the same crew."
