Who We Are
Ours is the story of folks who started eating and moving differently, saw awesome life changes as a result, and set out to help other people see similar impact.
Patrick’s fitness turnaround began when he started doing CrossFit workouts on his own in early 2009. After joining Trident Crossfit in 2010, it soon became clear that he needed to clean up his diet – enter Paleo, and early on he was hooked. A simple, graspable nutrition approach… feeling, performing and looking better…while still savoring tasty chow? All good. But the additional prep, cooking and cleaning time, and the lack of variety in his (granted uninspired) cooking? Not so good.
So Patrick did what entrepreneurs (this is his 3rd company) do, look for a better way. A few experiments, a professional chef collaborator (Rachelle) and incredible founding gym supporters (Trident and the great folks at Potomac & Patriot) later, Power Supply was born. Freshly prepared, tasty Paleo meals, delivered weekly to your gym. Easy get, easy eat.
Meantime Robert, having also caught the healthy eating and functional fitness bug, weighed in from the get go with advice and encouragement while holding down his day job as a marketing exec. Along the way he experienced his own fitness transformation (adios 35lbs, hello fitness at 40 he wished he had at 20), and got increasingly excited about Power Supply’s potential to help people.
So much so that he made the big jump from the corporate world to co-pilot Power Supply full time. A Level 1 certified CF trainer, he’s on his way to CF Kids certification so he can help more young people (beyond his 3 daughters, “high knees and elbows girls, GO!”) get excited about fitness and nutrition.
The culinary seasoning in this sauce comes from Rachelle Slotnick, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, former private chef and full service caterer. Rachelle’s years wearing many chef hats (including head butcher) in upscale hotels and 5-restaurants prepared her well to author and evolve Power Supply’s fast growing menu of tasty Paleo concoctions.
‘Nuff said about our stories. What motivates us is making your life around nutrition simpler, tastier and stronger so you can add new threads to the tale of your food and fitness exploits. And we LOVE hearing about and sharing said exploits. So whether you’re a Power Supply’er yet or no, tell us about your wins big or small and we’ll spread the good word so others can learn from your example. And if you’d like to spread the word too, raise your hand for the PS Ambassador Program, a great way to get involved in community-oriented activities we love.
Meantime, we’re thrilled you’re here. Food on.
