In 2011, Ben was approached by Blake Shubert about putting on a fitness competition at No Excuses CrossFit. By God’s grace, we raised $5000 to build a school in Uganda. Over the next several years, Ben grew in his relationship with Christ. As he learned the church’s purpose, he felt a great desire to serve the needs of church members, the saints and serve the under-resourced members of his community. He also saw the church body’s need for health and fitness. That intense yearning to share the knowledge and experience he gained in the CrossFit community and Fitness Industry drives his desire to serve the church and "under-resourced" through holistic fitness.
"A vision dies 3 times before it soars." - unknown proverb. This is the story of RFM. It has changed and died several times, coming to it's current place. Have we died 3 times? Not sure. It sure does feel like it though!

Ben Davis found his love for sports while playing soccer. He was a fierce competitor from the time he was 11 years old. Davis advanced to the Olympic Development Program, which is for elite players. He experienced playing in some of the largest youth soccer tournaments in the world, including Dallas Cup, Nike International Cup and the Dana Cup in Denmark.
When Davis entered High School, he got into wrestling and pursued it while continuing to play soccer. He has trained under some of the best coaches in the state of Georgia in both sports. This is where God began developing Ben’s understanding and passion for training the body.
After experiencing a career-ending injury in college, Ben developed a deep depression and confusion about the meaning of life and what he was purposed to do. This led to a “bed of suicide” in 2008 where he was saved by God’s grace and shown his purpose and meaning to glorify God with his life.
In December of 2008, Ben built No Excuses Athletics-CrossFit with Kyle Maynard and developed a knowledge and love for functional movement and continued to grow his passion for changing people's lives by impacting their physical well-being.
In April of 2014, Ben left No Excuses to pursue a franchise partnership with Iron Tribe Fitness On Ponce, a location in Atlanta.
He is now seeking to develop a team to impact lives in the area through Radical Fitness Ministries, a 501c3 Non-profit that he has founded, who's purpose is to "create a disruptive fitness brand, helping people succeed in the church and under-resourced communities."
Davis now lives and breathes to honor God. He's incessantly learning to be like Him and loving others. It’s for this love that Ben has missioned his life to pursue God with all his heart, mind, soul and strength and to love others as himself. It’s for this reason; he pursues people and encourages them to reach their full God-given potential.
He is living proof of the radical change the gospel of Jesus Christ can have on one’s life. Ben’s mission is to share this love with all people, helping them live an abundant life.
He currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia where he shares this life with his beautiful and talented bride, Laura Sully Davis and son, Thaddaeus.
